Grab Advance Booking: A Solution for Reliable Airport Transport

EJ Dela Vega, Grab Philippines Head of Mobility, shared insights about this new service: "Having served the Philippines for over a decade, we at Grab understand the unique needs of our Filipino passengers. One critical need is dependable airport transportation. With the launch of Advance Booking, we are not just offering rides to the airport – we are providing peace of mind. Our service guarantees on-time rides, allowing travelers to leave home knowing they will make their flights on time."

Key Features of Grab Advance Booking

Plan Ahead with Ease

Travelers can book their rides up to seven days in advance or as late as two hours before their trip. This flexibility allows for better planning and reduced stress.

On-Time Pick-up Assurance

Driver-partners for Advance Booking are guaranteed to be on time. In case of any disruption, the Grab platform promptly reassigns the ride to another driver. If a driver arrives late, passengers receive a Php 100 courtesy credit as compensation.

Grace Period for Added Convenience

A 15-minute grace period is provided for Advance Booking rides. This accommodates minor delays and offers passengers extra time to reach the pick-up point.

Simple and Convenient Booking Process

To book an Advance Booking ride, passengers simply select “Advance Booking” on the Grab transport page, enter the date and time of their ride, along with their pick-up location and airport terminal drop-off. Regular updates and reminders about the ride status are sent to passengers, who can also chat with their assigned driver 45 minutes before the scheduled pick-up time.
