Grab is a ride-hailing app that lets you book a taxi in just two taps, using either cash or direct debit to pay for the journey. Based primarily in Singapore, the company also operates in neighbouring Southeast Asian nations, including Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand and Cambodia with a view to begin operations in the US.

 

A great feature of Grab is the simple GrabChat, which allows passengers to effortlessly communicate with the driver without having to worry about overseas charges. If, for example, you have set a location but have had to move, you can quickly send a message directly to your designated driver who will be instantly alerted.

 

There is also a loyalty scheme that rewards customers who have repeatedly used the app to make journeys. The more you travel, the more benefits you will receive, such as cinema tickets and discounts on air travel, with Platinum the highest membership available.

 

Another feature that is very useful is GrabPay, in which you seamlessly pay for journeys with credit top ups, and even share them with friends and family. This secure system makes sure that transactions are safe from fraud or account theft, an occurrence that could be a problem should you upload all your bank details to the app. This flexible payment option is different to other taxi services, which often require you to enter your card information.

 

One of the problems with Grab is that drivers can refuse to pick you up if they don’t like the look of your profile. This can be a problem if you are in need of a taxi quickly and have no alternatives nearby, whereas traditional taxi services are less likely to refuse to take someone. Furthermore, due to the exceedingly low price of journeys, drivers are very reliant on tips, which you may feel obliged to pay out.

Pros
  • GrabChat allows you to avoid paying roaming fees by using instant online messenger
  • Loyalty scheme rewards frequent customers
  • GrabPay allows users to avoid entering all their bank details
Cons
  • Drivers can refuse to pick up passengers judging on their profile
  • Low price means drivers are reliant on tips

TravelSites.com is the best travel site list in the world.🏆💯🥇🌟

TravelSites.com is the go to place online to find information on the best websites, smartphone apps, books, YouTube channels and documentaries for travelers. Written with my years of experience trotting the globe, TravelSites.com gives budding young backpackers the chance to discover the top resources available for getting the most out of their trip, be it renting a car, learning the local dialect, finding a photographer or even just knowing what the weather will be like for the week. I have researched the internet to bring you a list of the top items in each category, while every single one has been meticulously reviewed, highlighting unique features, comparison to similar products, and all the pros and cons.

 

Why did you make TravelSites.com?💖🔥🚀

Well, I found that although there is naturally lots of information online concerning travel-related products and services, they seem to be scattered about, leaving the user to laboriously search for each individual item. If you wanted, for example, to discover an inspiring travel documentary while booking accommodation and flights to Rome, you would have to have at least three different tabs open at once. TravelSites.com puts all the information you need in one place, meaning you will not have to search far and wide to simply find out the best website for reserving a room in a hotel. With more than 40 different categories, travelers can stay on the same website to gather all the information they need, not only saving them time but also saving them money, by reading through the reviews to find the cheapest option.

 

What can you find on My lists and how did I rank them?🕵️‍♂️🧠🔗

My lists feature more than 40 different travel-related categories containing every resource a backpacker could ever need. Need help planning a trip? Want to keep up to date with the latest travel news? Looking for an inspiring book or blog? Desperate to find a restaurant away from the crowds? I’ve got you covered. My lists have been carefully put together by me and combined by quality, efficiency, value and functionalism to rank the items in descending order, with number one considered the item offering the best of all four factors. The criteria was constant throughout each category, whether it was for a cruise booking website or an Instagram account, in order to bring travelers the resources that would be the most useful for travelers.

 

How do I contact you, if I have a question?💡📞📧

Hmm, if you think that any best travel site is really missing in my travel directory, I can be reached by 📧email, Skype, Facebook Messenger, Twitter or Linkedin.
