GrabPet Is Grab’s Newest Service That Allows Pet Owners To Easily Book Cabs

Cabbing your pet around Singapore just got that much easier

“Sorry, the driver has cancelled your book. Please make another, or call our operator for assistance.”

Many pet owners are probably very familiar with this message because taxi drivers almost always cancel once they know that you’ve got a pet with you. And even if they do accept your booking, sometimes the drivers can be overly cautious and keep checking to make sure your dog isn’t drooling all over the backseats and making you feel uncomfortable the entire ride.

Grab has finally launched their GrabPets service, where booking cabs with your furry companions should be much easier now.

Dogs, cats, and all household pets approved by the Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority of Singapore are allowed on GrabPet rides, and they must be accompanied by human passengers at all times. So you can’t exactly book your dog a cab and ask your parents ready to receive him at home. Birds are the one exception to this – no birds in or outside cages are allowed.

There are also other restrictions that pet owners should take note of: all pets must be in a crate or leashed at all times, and only one large pet (41cm in length or more) is allowed on a GrabPet ride at any time. Two medium-sized pets (up to 41cm in length) is also allowed.

It goes without saying that GrabPet will be more expensive than a regular Grab cab. While Grab hasn’t released the exact pricing surcharge, you can expect it to be at least $5~$10 extra, which also covers insurance for pets onboard the car.
