This one RM50 daily by grab. One week is RM350. Read the term & condition and judge yourself whether worth it or not.

As for your driving time 8-5pm, 8-10am still ok, the rest hour demand is quite low. If u are expecting RM300 net is very tough for that 9 hrs drive.

In my point of view, I think it is not worth.
RM50 per day, with contract stated in agreement and deposit keep by Grab.

I will feel very stress to pay off the rental cost amounting RM50 everyday

Try to look for other option before you come to this Grab rental car program.

For Grab driver, average 5 hours can collect RM100. You may need to work more than 8 hours a day.
After a month, you will start thinking that "is my whole life only driving Grabcar?" bruce.gif

to optimize your income, u need to driver 6am to 10am, 5pm to 8pm... the rest of the hour is just charity....

even u drive premium, there are just too many drivers during non peak hour.... so basically u cant completed many job also...

There are companies doing this, 50 a day is cheap.
What car ? And is it the normal one or one that looks like a taxi ?

The Alpha I will register with is also doing business. A Bezza will cost me RM 450 a week. I wanna try first before buying new/used car to be a Crab laugh.gif

Nowadays, Grab is more of a side job so to rent a car for the sake of doing Grab, i dont think its worth it

I think if u r doing full time, ok to rent. Drive 6-10am, 5-10pm, drive more than 10hrs perday.. u can earn up to 2k per week. Said the old-timer. 2k is gross income. U maybe earn nett 50-30% from that. The best part to rent from grab is free maintenance. Take the wrap car. Grab pay you for the ads so it will cover some of your expenses.

How much is this ?

Bezza is going for between 1600 to 1800 a month outside.( for Crapcar too )
So 50 charged by Crap is 1500 a month... ok ma But Axia kah ?

previously i driving with grab but quit since few years ago.Saw alot negative comment on fb and here about driving nowdays...really that bad?

before i drive around 12 hours daily and my mileage is about 400km per day so in my opinion if you plan to drive long hour better rent than drive our car due the maintenance.mind you around 12 days driving need service then another 12days service again that not include tyre battery wear and tear part like joint rubber brake pad and such on.

Better rent with grab. Maintenance at service centre is not cheap.

Rent from Grab is better than purchase a new car to drive Grab. So much risk involve eg. sudden banned.
