Facebook user Win Ah disagreed with reports that drivers earn almost nothing after all the hidden charges are deducted from the drivers.

One Grabcar driver, Mr Chiang, in a letter written to this publication claimed that he earned just $1700 after working for over a month as a Grabcar driver. He said that Grabcar drivers have to be aware of many hidden charges that are levied on them, which eats into their earning.

Mr Chiang advised that members of the public should not be taken in my misleading advertisements like this one.

Mr Chiang said, “and there was once I emergency braked on the expressway to avoid an accident. Even though there was no accident, the passenger claimed whiplash against my insurer, and I have to pay $2000 excess.” Adding: “There goes my $1700 salary, I worked 1+ month for free.”

Another Grabcar driver writing in his Facebook, Aileen Azim, claimed to give the actual breakdown of driving a Grabcar.

grabcarAileen said that it is better to be a delivery driver than to drive a Grabcar.

Win Ah however disagreed with the experiences of both Grabcar drivers. Identifying himself as a Grabcar driver he said: “after minus petrol and rental I still earn $1000 – $1400 a week.”

“Those who do not earn much either are part timers or plain lazy.” he added.

Win Ah said that what’s most important is for Grabcar drivers to know where to find passenger and know how to take advantage of the various incentives.

“Drive smart, not drive hard,” he advised.Follow us on Social Media
