Grab users will be able to do journey planning, book hotels, purchase movie tickets and stream on-demand video content directly from the Grab app
The leading super app in Southeast Asia Grab today announced the launch of four new services – ‘Hotels’ booking, on-demand ‘Videos’ streaming, ‘Tickets’ purchasing and ‘Trip Planner’ that enables Grab users to plan their multimodal trips in real-time, in Singapore.
With the new ‘Hotels’ booking service, Grab users can book hotels and other accommodation from Agoda, and soon, Booking.com directly from the Grab app. They can access and compare prices across the world’s largest selection of 28 million places to stay.
For the 89% of Singaporean users who stream videos on their mobiles and others who are looking to do so, Grab will be offering online video content through the app in partnership with HOOQ.
Grab’s new ‘Tickets’ service, which will be rolled out by June 2019 in partnership with Asia’s leading entertainment ticketing platform BookMyShow, gives users a new way to buy movie tickets and in the future, tickets to other events online.
The new Trip Planner service will enable Grab users to plan their transit journey with real-time public transportation information and end-to-end directions right in the Grab app.
The four new services will be progressively rolled out in Singapore from today and be available to all users by June 2019.
The introduction of the services follows closely on Grab’s announcement of the integration of GrabFood into the main app last week, building towards its vision of being Southeast Asia’s everyday super app.
