The wait for pet owners is finally over – ride-hailing service Grab has finally launched GrabPet.
The service, which is still in beta at the moment, will give pet owners in Singapore the chance to travel with their beloved furry friend.
GrabPet Beta is also said to be the first pet transportation service in Singapore that includes additional insurance coverage for pets onboard.
Said Lim Kell Jay, Head of Grab Singapore: “We’re very excited to launch GrabPet because we know that many pet owners find it challenging to travel with their pets, given the limited transportation options available in the market.”
“We welcome our driver-partners’ and passengers’ feedback on the new service so that we can continually improve it for all users.”
The service will be available for all Grab users from today (20 Feb) onwards.
Those interested can access the service via the app:
According to Grab, “hundreds” of GrabPet driver-partners have trained for the new service, and the firm intends to “continue to expand the GrabPet fleet”.
All GrabPet vehicles will be equipped with a foldable back-seat cover with an adjustable leash, and driver-partners also have a microfibre towel and air freshener to ensure that their cars are clean for their next rides.
All household pets approved by the Agri-food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore (AVA) except birds are allowed on GrabPet, and must be accompanied by human passengers.
A maximum of two medium-sized pets (up to 41 cm in length) or one large pet (41 cm in length or more) is allowed on a GrabPet ride, and pets must also be in a crate or leashed at all times.
And what’s a launch without a promo code, right?
Users using GrabPet will be able to receive $3 off with promo code ‘LOVEPETS’.
To mark the beta launch of GrabPet in Singapore, Grab will also donate $3 from every GrabPet ride to SPCA Singapore for the next one month.
