Super Steady Incentive

Grab has introduced a new Incentive program to reward their driver partners.

It will be based on a factor called ‘Streak‘. Streak is the number of months that a driver has driven at least 200 trips for Grab.

How does it work

The counting of Streak will be back-counted, which means if you have been driving more than 200 trips per month consecutively for 4 months, your Streak count will be at 4.

There are 2 components of the Super Steady Incentive Program for Drivers. The first part is Reward Payout.

Example – Mr Abba has driven at least 200 trips per month between Jan 2018 to April 2018, he will be on Streak of 4. He will receive a $50 bonus on top of his total fares and other weekly incentives.

If Mr Abba continues to drive more than 200 trips every month until Dec 2018, his Steak will hit 12. He will receive a $100 bonus on top of his total fares and other weekly incentives.

The second part of the Super Steady Incentive is Reward Cash-back

Drivers who clock a Streak of 12 and beyond will be eligible for a Reward Cash-back, on top of the reward payout.

Example – Mr Abba has clock 12 consecutive months of 200 trips per month. He will be eligible for the reward payout and reward cash-back.

If Mr Abba earns $4000 a month, he will get a reward payout of $100 plus a reward cash back of (1% of $4000=$40). In total, he will receive $140 under this Super Steady Incentive program. This is on top of his fares and weekly incentives.

When will the Super Steady Bonus Be Paid to Drivers

Drivers who qualify for the bonus will receive it in their credit wallet no later than the 7th of each month. Check out on the usual grab payment

Important Note

The Streak starts counting from the first month that Drivers clocks at least 200 trips or more.

The Streak is calculated based on the number of consecutive months a driver clocks 200 or more trips in a month. The Streak becomes ZERO when the driver fails to achieve at least 200 trips in a month.

Drivers must achieve minimum performance standards set out by Grab. Acceptance Rate cannot fall below 85%, Cancellation Rate cannot exceed 10% and Driver Ratings cannot fall below 4.3. Acceptance Ratings/Cancellation Ratings/Driver Rating requirements will be counted monthly instead of weekly for this particular incentive.

All Destination Trips do not contribute or qualify towards the count of trips for this incentive program.

Learn more about Grab’s Passenger No-Show Feature and how it can help to protect your cancellation ratings to achieve your incentives.

Completion Bonus Incentive

Grab is giving out more incentives to rewards its drivers. There will be a new Completion Bonus that will be randomly given to drivers when they complete a trip. This is a pilot programme for GrabCar Driver-Partners.

This comes shortly after Grab announced new features to the driver app.

How to tell if the trip has a Completion Bonus Incentive

All trips that comes with the new Completion Bonus will show the bonus amount beside the regular fare.

When will the Bonus be paid

The bonus amount will be paid directly into the cash wallet immediately after the trip is completed. The bonus will only be paid if the trip is completed. All cancelled trips are not eligible.

Who Pays for the Bonus

Grab will pay for the bonus incentive. Drivers should NEVER collect the bonus amount from the passenger. All bonus payments are nett and not commission deductible.

When will I get these Bonus Calls

There is no fixed pattern or time to be assigned such calls. It may randomly just happen to be assigned to you.

How to check if Bonus is paid out

Grab drivers can check the Grab Driver App Cash Wallet and also the job history to see if the payment had been reflected after the trip. Any missing payment, they can contact Grab Customer Hotline and raise a ticket.


Drivers must update their Driver App to versions 5.35.0 (Android) and 1.21.0(iOS) and above to be able to receive jobs that comes with Completion Bonus.

What is Earning Boost and Boost Zone

What if the hotspot is surging?

If the surge level is higher than boost, then the surge will apply and boost will not be in effect. Surge is subjected to the relevant Uber Service Fee. Html code here! Replace this with any non empty text and that’s it.

Is the multiplier I get based on the time that I accepted the trip or when the rider requested for the trip?

The Earnings Boost is based on the time and location the rider requested the trip.

Are there any T&Cs for ‘Earnings Boost’? E.g. TPH, Acceptance rate, Completion rate requirements?

No requirements. As long as you can get it!

What is the service fee applied on the Boost incentive?

No Commission Taken from Boost

Boost > Surge

Surge 1.2x Boost 3x
Since boost is higher than surge, boost top-up will apply.
Original Fare: $10
Trip Fare: $12 (inclusive of 1.2x surge)
Uber Fee: $2.40 (20% of $12)
Boost: (3x Boost – 1.2x Surge =1.8 Boost) 1.8 boost x $10 (original fare w/o surge) = $18

Total fare: $12- $2.40 (uber fee) = $9.60
Plus boost: $18
= $9.60 + $18 = $27.60

Surge < Boost

Surge 4x Boost 3x
No Boost since Surge is higher than Boost
Trip fare: $25 (inclusive of 4x Surge)
Uber Fee: $5 (20% of $25)
Boost: $0
Total fare: $20
