Grab introduces GrabPay Credits for prepaid transactions

Grab has introduced GrabPay Credits, a new way of paying for your Grab rides.


Instead of using just cash or debit/credit card to pay, you can now reload your GrabPay Credits just like with a prepaid phone. Then, you can use those credits to pay for your rides later.


This is another way of not shelling out cash while on a Grab to ensure you’ll be paying the exact fare. There are a number of ways to top-up your GrabPay Credits:

  • Online banking / ATM or branch deposit (Dragonpay)
  • In stores and payment centers (Dragonpay)
  • Credit card

GrabPay Credits are applicable to all transportation options inside the Grab app. Unfortunately, if you’re planning on reloading for international travel, local credits will only be valid in their country of purchase. You’ll have to purchase Credits in other countries and spend them when you are traveling.

This new payment mode is already available in the Philippines. Just click on the GrabPay tab in the app and reload your account. You may know more about it through here.

    Grab Car free rides for new users is a fake. The driver still asks for payment of the fare. Although hours later, a received text message indicated that the booked ride should be free (Php 0.00 charge). It seemed that the driver wanted to get double indemnity (paid twice). I don’t trust Grab Car anymore. Must be a scam to draw in new riders.

      You should only pay what the app indicates. Otherwise, you can make an effort and report these drivers.
