Grab announces the beta launch of a new transport service, GrabPet, which allows pet owners in Singapore to travel comfortably with their pets. The new feature is the first pet transportation service in Singapore that includes additional insurance coverage for pets onboard. The new service will be available to all Grab users in Singapore from today.

The benefits of GrabPet Beta include:

Travel with a peace of mind: Grab is going the extra mile for safety and providing additional insurance for all pets, passengers and driver-partners.

Trained driver-partners: All GrabPet driver-partners are trained in pet handling and can help ensure to transport the pets safely. Grab has already trained hundreds of driver-partners for the new service.

Safety and comfort for pets: All GrabPet vehicles are equipped with a foldable back-seat cover with an adjustable leash for suitable pets. Driver-partners also have microfibre towel and air freshener to ensure that their cars are clean and well-maintained for all passengers.

Get rewarded for every ride: For every dollar spent on a GrabPet ride, passengers will receive up to six GrabRewards points, depending on their membership tier.

GrabPet Beta is a specialised transport service with fares starting from $14. All household pets approved by the Agri-food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore except birds are allowed and must be accompanied by human passengers. A maximum of two medium-sized pets (up to 41cm in length) or one large pet (41cm in length or more) is allowed. Pets must also be in a crate or be leashed at all times.

While there are existing pet transportation services on the market, most of them typically require bookings or reservations to be made in advance. With GrabPet, pet owners can book a ride on-demand, 24 hours a day and seven days a week, as long as there’s an available driver in the vicinity. Users can start riding today and receive $3 off with promo code ‘LOVEPETS’.

To mark the beta launch in Singapore, Grab will also donate $3 from every GrabPet ride to Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) in Singapore for the next one month.
