Which do u prefer Grab a taxi or uber ?

I never tried grab a taxi, madalas uber ginagamit ko.. Im curious if mas mura or mahal grab a taxi kesa uber? And cash payment sa grab? Any comment sa mga frequent rider ng grab a taxi? Or sa both compare niyo which u prefer? Salamat!

  • iirc based on fare estimates, mas mura ang GrabCar compared to Uber. Pero I have only used Uber and never GrabTaxi/GrabCar because of the tip system (for some obvious reasons). I'd rather hail a cab if I got extra time.

    If I don't have cash, I usually Uber it when I'm coding :lol: cashless payment as it's connected to my credit card :lol: Poor kasi eh :glee:
  • i prefer UBER. UBER drivers dont drive like taxi drivers.

    It is also connected to my credit card so I earn miles. :)

    Depends where. Parang sa min, mas mura ang Uber.

    In addition to my earlier post, the Xmas season just reinforced my preference for uber.

    Anak ng tipaklong, my credit card was compromised early Dec so my bank had to issue me a new card. I was credit card -less for almost 8 days and I just closed my other card noong Nov. ang hirap kumuha ng Grab Car pa. laging wala. No choice ako kundi mag-Grab kasi may cash basis. Pero dahil sa skait ng ulo ko sa Grab, I asked my brother na uutang ako sa kanya and I wil be just using his Uber account (bale sa phone niya sya nag-bobook ng UBER for me). As compared to Grab, super dali makakuha ng Uber kesyo x 3 pa surge niyan. At least makakauwi talaga ako.

    I find GrabCar very convenient.Very accessible pa. Waiting time is just 1 to 3 minutes dun sa place ko. When it comes to rate, maybe higher lang ng 20 to 30 php compare sa taxi so not that bad kasi halos puro bago naman yung car nila, lakas pa ng AC so bawi na din. Nice din yung mga drivers, at least you feel safe. :)
  • I utilize both services but I prefer using Uber more than GrabCar. GrabCar's rates are too high compared to Uber. Also, I have a cash payment option sa Uber and whenever I feel like not using my cc, I book Uber using cash payment option.

    D ko p natry ang grab car. Ang grab taxi matagal mag accept dahil sa destination ko pauwi ng tondo. Sa uber kahit pick up location lang enter ok n. After acceptance ko n key in yung destination. Madali kausap uber drivers dahil sa rating system.
    Ako ang namimili kung san dadaan.

    Kung d ako nagmamadali I usually try to find regular taxi for a while lalo kung surge more than 1.5x ang uber. Pag nagmamadali ako Uber talaga preference. Maraming meeting n ko naligtas ng uber! :D

    What the hell is grab?
    Taxi lang ako
    Ayaw ko sumakay ng jeepney diko alam tsaka nakaka takot para sa akin hahaha
    Mrt lrt na try ko na minsan ayaw ko na sumakay niyan an daming tao subra parang sardines sa dami ng tao
  • Mas mura ang Grab kesa sa Uber. Pero mas trip ko yung Uber kasi hindi kailangan ng cash dun. Maganda yun kapag may credit card ka pero kapag kagaya kitang mahirap at cash lang ang meron mag Grab kanalang. Mas mahal Uber sa tingin ko lalo na kapag may surge.

    nagti-tip pa ba kayo sa uber driver?


    may uber account ako pero never ko pa na-try ang service na ito...

    mag uber na lung kaya ako. Paalisin ko na yung driver ko. Mas makakamura ata ako. 10k ang sweldo ng driver. sa uber 500 pesos siguro per day. 20 days pasok. 10K din, wala pa akong gas at di ko masyadong gagamitin kotse. Sa weekend ako na lung mag drive. Weekend ko lung magagamit kotse ko. Di pa maluluma agad. O di va mukhang mas tipid ang uber.

    Yep. Go for it. This is what I did before. I no longer drive now. Riding Uber is cheaper than mantaining my own car. That 10k alone is my monthly amortization for my car. Di pa kasama gas, parking, insurance, maintenance, stress sa mga bobitong drivers sa daan.

    I've saved a lot from just using uber , actually. :)

    I think ang kelangan nalang ng kotse ngayon is just 1 per family. Pang out of town nalang siguro or kung sagot ng office ang ammortization mo, parking at gas (i.e. pamilyadong tao and senior officer ka sa company mo) . pero kung hamak na middle management ka lang at single ka, better to ditch the car for practical;ity reasons.

    oh, mga single guys din pala , kelangan ng tsikot para makaimpress ng chickababes, haha...,

    Some pros/cons...

    Grabtaxi:
    - pwedeng mag-reject ng booking, namimili kumbaga
    - madalas kaskasero
    - nag-e-expect ng tip

    Uber:
    - high surge minsan lalo na nung holidays
    - sa mga baguhang drivers, naliligaw
    - mas maingat magmaneho kumpara sa grab drivers. Kung meron mang Uber driver na kaskasero, usually mga dating taxi drivers. :lol:

    Ano pa ba? Hmmmnnn...

    Sa mga nagte-take ng Uber, please make sure na mabait kayo sa driver niyo, dahil hindi lang sila ang pwede nating bigyan ng rating. Pati tayong mga pasahero ay nire-rate din nila. I just don't know if the same goes for Grab.

    Ansabe, pag mababa daw ang rating ng driver, pag umabot ng 4.3 stars eh tanggal na yata siya sa service (pls confirm if this is true). Sa atin namang mga pasahero, mahihirapan naman tayo kumuha ng ride, lalo na kapag mababa ang binigay na rating ng ating driver. So dapat kalma lang, batiin niyo sila ng good morning/afternoon/evening when you step in the vehicle. At pag nag-suggest sila ng ibang routes, as per Waze, eh umoo na lang kayo, kahit na matatrapik kayo o mas mahaba ang travel

    Yeah, I agree with you Jameux, grabe nga ang fare surges ng Uber nung holidays. Well, hindi na masama yun, as compared to kokontratahin ka, hehe

    I haven't tried either yet but I want to try Uber. Mas sosyal ba ang dating pag Uber?

    I have a car and di naman ako nagtataxi unless I'm traveling back and forth Makati and BGC within the same day. I heard there's already a GrabBike which is for motorcycle taxis (aka habal habal). I have tried riding those one time, they seem quicker to get around although illegal lang parang colorum, and more dangerous.

    san ba mas SAFE sumakay, grab or uber?

    pwede din ba i-hire sila the whole day or mas ok na mag rent a car na lang ?
