As nature heals and life returns to normal, people are slowly up and about once again. That brings with it a demand for e-hailing services. Furthermore, with the number of retrenchments and people losing their incomes, many of them have turned to e-hailing services to cover their income.

“As part of our GrabBenefits programme, we listen to our driver and delivery partners, and seek opportunities to work with like-minded corporate partners to offer benefits that matter to them, such as defraying their operating costs as they continue to serve our consumers. This partnership with Carsome will provide our partners with a more attractive option when they source for a new vehicle and one that will help them upkeep the vehicle affordably,” echoed Grab Malaysia’s Director of Country Operations, Rashid Shukor.
