SINGAPORE: Grab has expanded its transport offerings with the introduction of its on-demand premier ride options – GrabPet XL. The transportation service, catering to consumers with more pets will be available from 25 May 2021 onwards.

GrabPet XL is an iteration of the GrabPet service, which has seen a ridership growth of close to 170 percent between April 2019 and April 2021. 

The service would utilise larger vehicle models, allowing for the transport of more passengers and pets. For instance, a GrabPet XL vehicle can ferry three passengers and three small to medium-sized pets (up to 41cm in length), or two large pets (41cm in length or more) in a single trip. 

On the other hand, GrabPet can accommodate up to two passengers, two small to medium-sized pets, or one large pet.

All household pets licensed by the Animal & Veterinary Service except birds, are permitted on the service. All vehicles are outfitted with foldable pet seat covers and adjustable leashes. In addition, Grab offers insurance coverage for travelling pets for the period of transit.

Rides start from $16.00 for GrabPet XL with the fare based on distance and subject to additional $0.30 platform fees.
