More opportunities for earnings for Grab Drivers. Now private-hire Grab drivers can sign-up and receive GrabFood and GrabExpress delivery jobs.
Is this Legal
Yes, Grab has stated that it is the only platform that has received the approval by LTA to allow private-hire drivers to deliver food as additional earnings.
Do take note that providing commercial courier service using a private-hire car other than Grab’s related service is still no legal under LTA’s regulations. Only GrabFood and GrabExpress are approved as of now.
Your Z10 Commercial Insurance must also cover the use for delivery.
According to Grab, An in-principle approval has been issued by the following insurers to extend motor insurance to commercial courier services.
Personal injury and accidents will be covered in accordance with Grab’s Group Personal Accidents.
i) MSIG (only for GrabRentals Fleet)
ii) NTUC Income
iii) Insurer under Fleet Partners (eg. Lion City, Primers Group)
How much can you earn on GrabFood and GrabExpress
There is a base fare of $9 for both GrabFood. For GrabFood, there may be additional surcharges (like surge) during periods of high demand.
There is zero commission for GrabFood deliveries, meaning you keep whatever that you earn. The earnings will be displayed on the job card when you receive an incoming job.
For GrabExpress, the fare will be similar to that of JustGrab where there is a base fare plus distanced-based fare.
There will be a 20% commission deduction for all GrabExpress jobs.
