Moved from Uber to grab 2 weeks ago. So far:
1. I no need chase trip count in grab. In Uber, i have to hit quest count 54 or 39 to get incentive. If i hit 53 only, i get no incentive. This is usually very stressful. Sometimes i have to force myself to drive until 2am to get 54 trips. I dare not cancel any trip no matter how stupid the rider is. I just swallow and accept the rider abuse to complete the trip. In grab, the incentive is based on hourly, AR, CR and rating. If cannot hit target, there is always the next hour.
2. The pickup distance in grab is usually less than 2km. In Uber, it is average 5km or more (even received 20km )
3. In grab, the app don't care what route you use, the fare is fixed. Rider cannot change drop off point midway. In Uber, the app calculate the distance traveled. If you used shortcut, the fare becomes lower because shorter distance. Rider can change drop off point any time and the fare recalculate to cheaper fare. Uber got upfront fare that rider agreed to pay when booking. The driver may get lower fare, Uber pocket the difference.
3. Grab got minimum fare like rm 4 or rm 5. Uber don't have. It depends on distance. Can be as low as rm 1.00 i think.
4. Grab fare is round up to ringgit. No need deal with coins. Uber fare is up to sen which is very confusing when 10 sen or 20 sen. Need to find change.
5. Grab fare is usually higher than Uber fare.
6. It is easier to get ping in grab than Uber. (More riders)
7. Myth : Uber got more civilised riders. Fact : both the same. Got good and bad riders. Just depend on your luck.
Hope this helps.
1. And the Uber incentive keeps decreasing everytime you hit.
2. Agree +1.
3. Agree +1, this is what we call "being robbed". Happens everywhere in the world with Uber.
3. At least Uber implemented base fare lately, so all the fare have kinda increased by ~rm1. In the past, I have made some trips below rm2 when there is no base fare - lowest was rm1.50 before commission.
4. This one is not so important lar, just round up/down accordingly.
5. Agree +1.
6. Same as I have said before "you ain't got rider if you ain't got driver". If this continues, I think Uber is going to be gg soon.
7. Agree +1, most riders have at least 2 apps to compare when requesting a ride. It's dependent on your luck and also location, KL folks are mostly demanding IMO.
