In Singapore, GrabCar has appeared to be the clear winner in both the 5km distance and 20km distance category.

For a 5km distance, the average Grabcar fare is $4.30 , Uber is at $5.60 and Taxi is at $7.  GrabCar is almost 23% cheaper on average compared to Uber and 38% cheaper than Taxis based on the research data.

Take the result with a pinch of salt

Although GrabCar appears to be the clear winner, the data may not be conclusive for you to make a decision on which service to choose.

Factors such as surge pricing, surcharges, promotions and availability of other services such as UberPool and GrabShare can affect the eventual choice of service.
