Going To Tourist Destinations Via Grab

Not many people probably know what Grab is about a year or two ago. It started as a project study of Anthony Tan and Hooi Ling Tan at Harvard Business School in 2011. They came up with the idea because of the difficulty in getting a taxi or cab.

Grab is a technology company that offers wide range of ride-hailing and logistics services through its app in Southeast Asia.

Now, it’s Southeast Asia’s leading ride-hailing platform used by 620 million people in countries like Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand, and the Philippines. This convenient and reliable mobile app is a huge help for commuters who not only want to reach their destination in one piece but get there comfortably. It likewise addresses the shortage of taxis and other serious transportation issues.

Grab is convenient to everyone including travelers who want to visit tourist spots in as little hassle as possible. They don’t have to worry about drivers taking advantage of them, and not being able to get there quickly. Grab is guaranteed reliable, safe, and comfortable.

Here in the Philippines, more people are taking advantage of a Grab Taxi or Grab Car because they’re accessible to commuters any time, any day. They have been around here in Bacolod for about two years already but since not many people know about it or at least know how to get a ride in a matter of minutes, they’re going to put up a call center to help those who either don’t have the app or don’t know how to use it.

The ladies of Negros Bloggers (Mea, Sunshine & Dhadha) with Sir Jimson Ponce, one of the top-rated GrabTaxi drivers in Bacolod. Suki ko toh!

I’ve used Grab Taxi and Grab Car countless times already. Since I’m a “certified suki” (been using Grab since 2015), most of the time I get promo codes and other discounts via text and email — and this really made me happy!

How Grab Works
