In today's world, everything is made available to us so easily and conveniently with a simple click.
Among all the applications you currently have in your mobile phones, you must have used Grab at least once in recent years, whether it is hailing a ride or ordering food delivery.
Now, the company wants to make your life even better with the launch of three new services -- 'Tickets'
booking and planning your trips in real-time with 'Trip Planner'
Let's start with Trip Planner
Grab is helping you plan your day seamlessly, from commuting to school or work, to ordering your next meal, and even to your next movie date or vacation.
This new service allows you to plan your journey using real-time public transportation information as well as end-to-end directions with the app.
The moment you enter your destination via Trip Planner, you will be able to view all available transit options with departure and arrival times in real-time.
You will also receive directions or recommendations of first-mile-last-mile transportation options, such as JustGrab to and from the public transit that they can book right away.
This is first of its kind in Southeast Asia, enabling you to predict and plan your daily commute better because we could all use a bit of help in the time management department at some point in life.
Next, the new Hotels
booking service is quite straightforward, you can book hotels and other accommodation from Agoda and Booking.com (coming soon) from the Grab app.
With this feature, you can access and compare prices from a wie range of choices, including luxury and budget hotels, apartments, vacation homes and B&Bs.
If you're a Platinum, Gold or Silver user under Grab, you would notice that you can now redeem vouchers of up to RM30 off hotels booked through Agoda.
Grab Platinum users can also access Booking.com's Genius programme that gives you 10 per cent discounts and more.
If this is not enough for you, Grab has got you covered because more features and benefits will be added to the Hotels service later this year, such as free travel personal accident, flight delay insurance with each hotel booking, special ride offers, and more.
Finally, Grab partnered with BookMyShow in its new Tickets
service for a faster and simpler way to purchase movie tickets, and tickets to other events in the future.
Users can search, compare and buy tickets from some of Malaysia's leading cinema chains, including MBO Cinemas and soon, TGV Cinemas.
Of course, each of the newly introduced service can be paid using GrabPay, while earning GrabRewards points to redeem more benefits and rewards with every transaction.
The new services are already rolling out gradually across Malaysia at the time of writing and will be available to all users by June 2019
