Why grab a Grab?


Why grab a Grab?

Inspire is delighted to have teamed up with Expat Life magazine to bring you more great content to do with Thailand

You live here. You have a bank account from which money can be drawn. You’re tired of being told it’s 500B to get to Silom – and the metre doesn’t work. You’re sick of a taxi pulling up, rolling down the window, considering your destination and saying “mai di”. You don’t like taxis that smell of tobacco and beer. You don’t like taxi drivers who take the long way around to gain an increased fare – and you don’t know the city well enough to tell. You don’t have impeccable Thai and can give muddled addresses. You don’t have small change.

Are those not enough reasons to grab a Grab? It took me two minutes to set download the free App, another two minutes to link my savings bank account to Grab. Then two minutes to set up my home destination. Then I called Grab. Five minutes later, a car pulled up and my ride was waiting and off I went.

How did I know it was the car for me? I knew the license plate number. I watched his car approaching my address. Not only that, I knew how much the fare would be and I didn’t have to have correct change. The driver has GPS and a map on his phone. I have the same map on mine. He has my destination. I can sit back watch the world go by, use my phone, chat to a friend and relax.
