Shots fired: Grab offers up free rides to counter Uber's RM0.99 promo

Now's the best time to try either of these ridesharing services if you haven't already

Grab's taken a cheeky swipe at Uber's RM0.99 promo with its own Zero Fares, Zero Problems campaign.

Free rides with fewer strings attached

The Grab promo will offer up free rides for trips with fares RM7 or lower, even during standstill traffic. Use the promo code ZEROFARE with GrabCar or GrabTaxi, applicable whether with cash or credit/debit card.

Each customer is allowed up to 30 Grab rides, with the promo running from 14 February to 28 February. The promo is limited to 10000 redemptions per day and is not applicable for rides between KLIA and KLIA2.

The good news: the promo is applicable to a lot more areas than Uber's (which was only within KL) and they are the Klang Valley, Johor Bahru, Melaka, Penang and Kota Kinabalu.
