Grab, an online ride hailing platform, has launched GrabCar’s latest services, GrabCar Plus and Rent a GrabCar, according to a company press release received on Thursday.



Through the new service launched on Wednesday, users could now enjoy the GrabCar Plus service with fleet allocation priority and shorter waiting time, while with the Rent a GrabCar service, passengers could visit multiple destinations with just a one-time booking on the Grab app with an adjustable duration, the release said said.

“We want to introduce the latest services, GrabCar Plus and Rent a GrabCar as a set of GrabCar services aimed to address various users’ needs and provide extra convenience to them,” Grab Indonesia managing director Ridzki Kramadibrata said in the release.

He said the Rent a GrabCar service was specially designed to address passengers’ needs who wanted to visit multiple locations in the city, while users could transit whenever and wherever according to their needs during the rental duration.

“The launch of Rent a GrabCar also enables driver partners to get incomes through Grab, while at the same time enjoying incomes through fixed fares per hour. Grab app also has a real-time tracking feature, in which passengers can know the exact driver partners’ locations during the transit,” Ridzki added.

Currently, the Rent a GrabCar service is available in various cities in Indonesia such as Jakarta, Bandung, Yogyakarta, Surabaya, Bali, Manado and Makassar.
