You Can Soon Plan Trips, Book Hotels, And Purchase Movie Tickets With Grab
Grab Malaysia has revealed new features on their app where you are able to plan trips, book hotels as well as purchase movie tickets. These services will be progressively rolled out in Malaysia from Today and be available to all in June 2019.
The new Trip Planner service will allow you to plan your transit journey with real-time public transportation information and directions right from the app.
To utilize the feature, you can simply pick Trip Planner and you will be able to view all available public transit travel options, along with real-time departure and arrival times. You will also receive directions or recommendations of transportation options.
The next feature is Hotel, which like its namesake, allows you to book hotel for your next holiday from Agoda, and soon Booking.com directly from the Grab app. You will be able to access and compare prices across the world’s largest selection of 28 million places to stay. This feature has started rolling out to select Grab users in Malaysia, which will be available to all users in May.
At the moment, Grab’s Platinum, Gold, and Silver users can redeem vouchers up to RM30 off hotels booked through Agoda, when spending a minimum of RM300. Users will get free travel personal accident, flight delay insurance with each hotel booking, special ride offers and GrabRewards points with each transaction.
Last but not least is Grab’s new Tickets service, which will be rolled out by May 2019 in partnership with BookMyShow. Users will be able to search, compare, and purchase tickets from several cinema chains and soon TGV. Each purchase will earn you GrabRewards points too.
