Grab, Southeast Asia’s leading ride hailing platform, recently announced that they will extend their Group Personal Accident Insurance (PAI) to all GrabHitch riders at no extra cost. The PAI for GrabHitch riders complements the personal motor insurance purchased individually by GrabHitch drivers.
GrabHitch is a social carpooling platform under the Grab platform, powered by everyday drivers, who are non-commercial, giving you a lift along the way to cover their petrol costs.
Reasons to GrabHitch
First introduced in 2015, GrabHitch is a rapidly growing carpool service that enables regular car owners to give fellow commuters a lift. Commuters choose GrabHitch for the following reasons:
- Carpool for a greener future: Fully powered by everyday commuters, GrabHitch fares are not-for-profit. GrabHitch drivers go the extra mile because they believe carpooling is central to a green car-lite Singapore.
- Community-building through carpooling: GrabHitch fosters community building and is a fun way for people to get to know those who live, work and play in the same neighbourhoods. Close to 80 per cent of GrabHitch drivers are working professionals who enjoy the social interaction and playing a part in contributing to a green future.
- Perfect for those on a schedule and budget: GrabHitch rides can be scheduled in advance, giving commuters the certainty of a ride when they need one. As GrabHitch fares are not-for-profit, riders contribute a minimal sum as a way of sharing the cost of the journey with the driver. Fares are capped at $17, even if you travel from one end of of the island to the other.
- Covered on every ride: Grab’s PAI for GrabHitch riders provides an additional layer of coverage to complement GrabHitch driver’s personal motor insurance. With this blanket coverage, riders can travel with greater peace of mind whenever they GrabHitch.
For those thinking of carpooling via GrabHitch, you can hitch a ride with a peace of mind and it would be good for community building and networking too!
