Grab has partnered London-based Splyt Technologies to provide travellers convenient access to ride-hailing services anywhere in the world.
International travellers will soon be able to book Grab rides across 336 cities in 8 Southeast Asian countries through their preferred apps.
At the same time, Grab users travelling beyond Southeast Asia can continue to book rides through the Grab app, and have them fulfilled by Splyt’s partners. Travellers can use their app in their native language, and even pay in their home currency.
“This partnership will unlock a world of options for the increasingly well-travelled Southeast Asian, letting them roam easily across the world through an app they already know and trust,” said Mark Porter, Chief Technology Officer for Transport at Grab.
Grab also plans to add features such as in-app travel tips, restaurant reviews and attraction recommendations, to offer an even richer travel experience to its users.
This initiative is targeted for completion next year.
