GrabCar: Reserve a Ride, Book an experience, Arrive in Style.

Let's face it, you'd rather endure the long queues, elbow your way in and get squeezed like sardines in a can inside the MRT than risk your life inside a taxi cab.

With all those stories of bad taxi experiences (especially from women), riding a cab especially during night time and the wee hours of the morning is like looking for trouble.

But that was before Pinoys got introduced to GrabTaxi, Southeast Asia’s leading transportation technology app. Thanks to GrabTaxi, you don't have to worry about homicidal and disrespectful drivers, or picking up a fight with the other commuters for the first taxi that passes by.

Now, GrabTaxi takes the concept further as it recently introduced, GrabCar and its new premium line - GrabCar+ The event was held at A Space Manila last Wednesday, February 18, 2015 with the new line boasting of chauffeur-style transportation service with luxury car options.

“We thank our loyal customers for making GrabCar a hit over the past year. We have been getting good feedback on the professionalism of our drivers, as well as the cleanliness of our fleet. We have also been getting requests for more luxury car models that our customers can use when going to special events or important meetings. This is where we got the idea to launch GrabCar+," GrabTaxi Philippines assistant general manager Natasha Bautista said.

Some of the most requested models include Fortuner, Montero, Camry, Hummer, and Tucson, all of which are available for GrabCar+ customers.

GrabCar+, just like GrabCar, aims to complement its taxi service by giving customers more options to travel safely, conveniently, and in style. GrabCar+ is closely coordinating with the Land Transportation Franchising & Regulatory Board (LTFRB) regarding the LTFRB Memorandum Circular for Transportation Network Companies (TNC).

To book one of the luxury cars, just download the GrabTaxi app from the App Store (iOS), Google Play (Android), and Blackberry World, and then click on the GrabCar+ option. The app detects your current location and shows you how many GrabCar+ drivers are in the vicinity. As soon as you input your destination, the app tells you the estimated fare. You also have the option to pay with cash or go cashless (credit or debit cards).

At your confirmation, the app contacts nearby drivers and sees their responses in real time. When a
driver confirms, the app shows you the driver's name and photo, and waiting time. An in-app button also allows you to call your driver.

GrabCar is a car-booking app that revolutionizes the way you move by sending a private vehicle along your way at the tap of a button! A brainchild of GrabTaxi, Southeast Asia’s leading transportation technology app, GrabCar is your new favorite ride in the metro. GrabCar takes you where you want to go in chauffeur-style service.

GrabTaxi exists to solve a real problem. We match taxi drivers with passengers by optimising the latest smartphone technology and multiple data-points. This makes us popular because passengers are able to book a taxi easily and conveniently when they need it most while the drivers don‘t waste time waiting for customers. Our three pillars -safety, certainty and speed— are our guiding principles to help solve the problem. We love our customers, which is why we never delete any negative feedback on our social media channels. The feedback keeps us on our toes and makes sure we are continuously improving.
