Beep Beep! Grab taxis are now in Phuket

In September this year, the extremely convenient Grab Taxi service came to Phuket. Since then it has proven to be the preferred mode of transport for many tourists and locals around the island. What sets it apart from other Taxi services on the island is that communication between the passenger and the driver can become a lot clearer. Many times Taxi drivers don’t know the most direct route to a destination or they don’t understand what the passenger is saying because of the language barrier between locals and tourists, but with Grab Taxi, the passenger has the option of keying in the destination to the GPS in English and all the driver has to then do is follow the directions on the map.

Right now, the Grab Taxi service is set to expand across the island. At the moment there are over 141,000 services regionally, including Grab Car services, which are private vehicle services complete with a personal driver, as well as Grab Bike, which are Motorcycle taxi services. There is even Grab Express, a very reliable delivery service.

When using the Grab Taxi app, different languages are available for all these services, including English, Thai and Chinese. Passengers have found everything about it to be completely reliable and easy to use. The cost of the fare is upfront and the most direct route is always taken so there’s no chance of being ripped off by an unscrupulous driver or being taken on the scenic route to your destination.   

It’s just another example of how things run smoothly on this glorious island.
