Grab Thailand has announced the launch of its ride-hailing service in Hua Hin. To celebrate the launch, Grab is offering a 100 THB discount on the first three rides booked via the Grab app. Just enter the promo code ‘HUAHIN’ in the promo section of the app and 100 THB will be deducted from the fare. For those not aware how Grab works, customers can request a taxi in the form of a car or motorbike through the Grab app. The app knows your location and then you tell it where you want to go. You can either pay in cash once you reach your destination or through the app, which can be downloaded.
An example given by Thaivisa described taking Grab from close to the Banyan Golf Course to Soi 94. The price of the ride should have been 149 THB but cost just 49 THB after using the HUAHIN promo code.
The driver, who spoke English, was reported to have picked the passengers in a fairly new and extremely clean four-door Ford Ranger, saying that the firm has about 80 drivers signed up in Hua Hin. If this journey was anything to go by, Grab will be a welcome addition for people in Hua Hin.
