Grab

A Smarter Way to Get around Bali

Wherever you’re from, you know that ride services can be a lifesaver. This is just as true on vacation. When your tropical holiday rolls around, knowing how to score a lift from point A to point B is crucial. In Bali, Grab can get you there.

Grab started in Singapore, but it soon expanded throughout Southeast Asia. Now, it’s one of the most popular modes of transportation for folks who want to catch a ride, Bali included. Equally as popular with travelers and locals on this Indonesian island, Grab doesn’t discriminate—families, solo goers and groups with a party on their mind can all benefit.

Your Choice of Rides

Grab isn’t a one-size-fits-all ride. You can use the app in 4 different ways, making it perfect for tailoring your evening with no speed bumps in sight. That’s exactly what makes it such an “everyday everything” app for the contemporary consumer.

As for those options, choose from:

With all those options, Grab proves itself to be a kind of purveyor of the rideshare industry. Android and iPhone users alike can enjoy the full benefits of the app, making your trip logistics come naturally. As far as we’re concerned, the less you have to plan ahead, the better.

The Safer Side of Ride Hailing

Wherever you are in the world, hailing a taxi off the streets comes with some inherent risks. You don’t know who you’re getting in the car with, and you’re fully aware that these drivers don’t have any ties to a map. That’s what makes Grab such a suitable option for any traveler.

It’s a safer option because you have a face, name, car type and license plate number before the driver even arrives. To add to it, the drivers themselves have better working conditions. With that in mind, everyone involved can breathe a little easier as they go on their way. Since 2012, Grab has been changing the ridesharing game one lift at a time, and it shows no signs of stopping. In Bali, it really is your answer to seamless transportation.
