What Can You Use Grab App For?
Grab Superapp is most useful on holidays for airport transfers, short trips in a car, renting a car and driver, short rides with a driver on a motorcycle, and ordering food delivery.
It really is a Superapp though, and once you master using the app for transport and food, you’ll easily figure out to use it in so many other ways.
We love to use it to shop from the mart for our grocery essentials, send packages between different locations and even to top up our mobile data and pay bills.
By having Grab Superapp already downloaded and set up before arriving in Bali, it means you can start using it as soon as you land for a hassle (and haggle) free way of getting to your accommodation.
Even if you don’t have it downloaded and set up before you land though, you can head directly to the Grab Lounge at the airport where the staff will help guide you through the set-up process also.
Step 1: Download the App
Step 2: Sign Up
Choose the “New to Grab? Sign up!” tab, and enter your phone number, email address and name to create your account. You can choose to receive your verification code either via Whatsapp or SMS. Once you receive your code, enter it to verify your account.
Step 3: Add Emergency Contacts
You will be prompted to add up to 3 emergency contact numbers so that you can share your ride with these contacts (as parents of teenagers that use Grab regularly to get around Bali, we absolutely love this feature!). You can also choose to add these later.
Step 4: Complete Your Setup
While you are in a country where Grab doesn’t operate, your screen will look like this:
You can choose to add a card to attached to your account to make payments easier (however all Grab services can also be paid for in cash). When travelling we recommend using a WISE account and card for the best exchange rates and lowest fees.
Now your Grab account is ready to use!
Using Grab in Bali
When you get to Bali where you can use Grab, your screen will look the screen below and you can start accessing all of the services on offer but using the circles at the top of the screen (Food, Mart, Car, Bike etc).
