  • Interface and service worse than Uber, so many pop ups

    By MacUser19479032
    Every time you open the app, there is a pop up advertisement. It gets annoying real fast. I don’t want Grab for your ads, I want it for the service. When it comes to the service, Uber was far superior, but then Uber in Southeast Asia sold to Grab. However, users are still left with the crappy Grab interface and worse service than Uber. It’s harder to get a taxi with Grab because it seems like Grab let’s the drivers decide whether to accept your request or not, unlike Uber which would assign requests. As a result, I’ve spent 5-10 minutes trying to get a Grab without success, probably because I wasn’t going somewhere central. Further, it does not appear that Grab has brought into its system the many Uber drivers. The number of drivers actually seems somehow fewer than when you had both Uber and Grab in Thailand. I’m forced to use Grab because there’s no competitor, but the experience is sub par. I’ve also been trying to add another credit card for over a month, and every time Grab gives me a random error saying it can’t save. I use this card on every other App I use. How hard is it for a company to mess up the capability to add a credit card? For Grab, it’s pretty easy.
  • Good, Not Great

    Grab is a decent app, especially when compared to its biggest competitor GO-JEK. I am currently living in Indonesia for work, but have only been here a short time and so have not learned the language (yet). I LOVE that the Grab app includes automatic translation for me, which makes it hugely preferable for me when choosing between Grab and GO-JEK. I also feel that (just in my experience) the Grab drivers are consistently friendlier and more professional. On the other hand, the Grab app is not always reliable. It is often slow to launch (3-4 minutes), and has on occasion crashed entirely while en route, causing the driver to ask me for directions even though I had never been to the place we were going before. I also had been paying by card through the app, and when it crashed I had to scramble to come up with cash to pay the driver. (I even checked my card in the coming days to see if the transaction would go through later—it did not.) Overall this is a decent app. As a foreigner it makes my life easier most of the time. It could definitely use some improvement though.
  • So many ads and pop ups

    By xRoisinDubh
    Every time I open the app I get pop up ads. They made the map view smaller so they could put in a constant banner ad for the GrabPay credits. Why? Put it in the menu or make it smaller or have an option to turn it off.. I’m looking at that screen to see the map, not a constant oversized advertisement. The driver detail section is also oversized. The map is the main thing people are wanting to see.. make it the focus. The app should also have smarter predictions.. I literally have to type out the exact same locations to and from every day and night.. why wouldn’t you have it learn to plug it in for me by now? Or have favorites, like Home and Work? I also can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to navigate for my driver because they don’t know where they are going. ISN’T THAT LIKE THE ONLY REQUIREMENT (BESIDES OWNING A VEHICLE) FOR BEING A GRAB DRIVER??? The estimates they give for how far away a driver is are a joke. Usually it’s at least double. And if you cancel immediately because the driver who accepted is too far away, then you get put on a “Canceller List” and it becomes progressively less likely you’ll get a ride each time you do so. Extremely petty. Very annoying overall.
  • Really Great App with a few shortcomings

    By msdz919
    Love many features of the app: Just Grab is great, car options are very diverse, and love the ability to add multiple destinations for a trip. Grab also has a very easy messaging interface, and seemingly better GPS than Uber. Plus, the reward program is AWESOME. The one major objection is that you can't cancel a request once made and before a car is assigned. The only way to TRY to cancel a request is to shut down the app and even then I still sometimes get assigned a car after the app has been closed. You can only cancel once a car is assigned, which you get penalised for - this seems a bit unfair. Uber allows you to cancel mid-request which is helpful on both the passenger and driver side. Also, it would be great to see an ETA during the trip as Uber has. To know my ETA with Grab I have to track on my own by GPS.
  • Horrible, unhelpful and unreliable. Worse driving service app.

    By SirJV
    I used this app once and had a horrible experience. I was going to try and give this app another chance but the customer service is USELESS. Their drivers are not trained at all as well. My driver did not understand how payments work with his app and wanted me to pay cash when I already paid with my card when requesting a ride. He just kept hassling me for about 30 minutes wanting me to pay cash. Security guards had to come and explain to him that I already paid him but he kept insisting me to give him cash. Not only that but My driver got lost and went the wrong direction and ended up having to pay toll because of his mistake. I ended up having to get charged for it. When I brought this up to customer service all they said was "sorry" and They wouldn't reimburse me my money. You're better off using another driving service app if you want a smooth ride to your destination. This was the worse and most uncomfortable ride I have ever been on.
  • More than likely to save you money in Thailand taxi fares

    By AnthonyFromFL
    First time to Thailand and stayed in the Bangkok area for 5 days. Unless you’re a local and/ or lucky, you probably won’t find better taxi fares in Thailand unless you use this app. I’ve gotten taxi fares cheaper than a lot of tuk tuks, using this app. Yes there’s ads but how do you think a free app remains free?? You may sometimes experience long wait times (15-20 min) because not only traffic at time of request, but it seems like the taxis available from the app are not as plentiful as say Uber in other big cities around the world- so you may see increased fare prices due to high demand. I still say 5 stars because this app has done what it has advertised and what it has been designed to do. Plus it saved me some money too.
  • Bugs with new updates

    By roscomcmillan
    I like this app so this is all to help improve. The recent payment update caused me to say thanks and walk away from my drivers car while he was expecting cash. My credit card was no longer being used for rides without any notice. He had to run me down and thought I was trying to not pay. I had to use cash for a day before I had time to go through the new pay system sign up. When I tap “Learn more about the Grab pay credits”, it takes me to a webpage that can’t be found, so I’m not sure if my card on file will be used again now or if it expects me to top up like a SIM card. Also the grab rewards new sign up process keeps freezing on the last step (entering date of birth). Minor suggestions from before update: * GPS is usually inaccurate by a short distance * Raising rates for drivers or being able to tip in-app should be added asap. * A standardized picture of the vehicle should appear by the driver picture. This will help everyone, but especially foreigners to spot a car when they don’t know the regional makes and models of vehicles. * Being able to give public compliments or favorite drivers to use again in the future. More incentives for good drivers.
  • Great, but be careful

    By Trying Not To Be Scammed
    This app has been amazing during my time in Singapore and Vietnam. In HCMC it worked like a charm every time whether a bike or a car. Unfortunately upon arriving at the airport in Hanoi it seems that the scammers have taken control. Twice I requested a car and twice my driver contacted me with a new license plate number to look for. I declined the ride both times. I also was approached by a friendly man who was in the area that my driver's phone was supposedly located. Twice he offered to speak on the phone ony behalf entirely in Vietnamese. I began to suspect that he was accepting rides on the app and then calling his friends to come and pick people up. This is super sketchy. I did meet one driver who looked nothing like his picture and politely declined the ride cancelling on the app. Grab is great in the city but needs some work at the airport. As for me I opted for the #86 city bus. It takes an hour but only cost 30,000 VND and the driver was very helpful.
  • Drivers are always lost and inept...

    By joshjellel
    I rely on ride-hailing apps when working in Taiwan, Thailand and the Philippines. Time and again Grab has been a miserable experience when you don’t speak the driver’s language. Someone please tell me why the drivers never know where to pick me up and where I want to go!? Both of those pieces of information are crucial to booking a ride. Both of those pieces of information are entered with explicit detail and appear in both text and map form in their native language on their own device that they know how to work. And yet, every single ride I get a call with questions about where I am—somehow they can’t figure out without speaking to me how to navigate their car to that pin on the map. And then once I’m in the car we have to try to talk some more and point to places and maps and info on my phone that I know they can’t read. C’mon man! Knowing how to navigate is like 75% of your job. And Grab the company: this wayfinding should be seamless as a part of the driver’s software. How about some initial navigation aptitude testing and ongoing training?! And how about some education on what riders expect from an app-based service?! If I wanted to make a phone call and do a lot of talking, I’d call a traditional taxi service. Talking to the rider can not be your drivers’ first resort—they need to be more resourceful. Inexcusable. No stars!
  • Completely frustrating app and experience

    1
    By Flyonzewall
    I live in SE Asia where Grab have acquired Uber. I used Uber regularly without a problem for years. So now I have to use Grab and the app is a near total fail. For example: - The app often can not find my pickup location and autolocates hundreds of metres away, sometimes across a busy highway. I have had to cross busy highways in the rain, not at all safe, just so the driver could find me. This is a huge complaint I hear from drivers as well. - The destination database is very limited. Type in a point, it doesn’t find it, and offers up suggestions that are not even close to where you want to go. Sure, you can pin a destination on a map, but what if you don’t know the city or language? - Unlike Uber, the route is not plotted on the app map, so you have no idea if you are taking the correct route. This could also be a safety concern if you doubt the driver’s integrity. - Many times your current location lags by a minute or more, so the app doesn’t even show you where you are. I could go on, but Grab is just totally frustrating. If I am somewhere where I can hail a taxi, I do that now rather than deal with the Grab app, even if I have to pay more. Both riders and drivers are frustrated...Grab needs to fix this if they want to grow their business or keep formerly satisfied Uber riders and drivers.
