Grab and Klook announces partnership, allowing users to uncover new local experiences

Grab and Klook, a travel activities and services booking platform has announced a partnership that will allow Grab users to discover and book a world of experiences via the newly launched “Attractions” tile on the Grab app, powered by Klook.

With Klook’s extensive catalogue offering over 100,000 attractions, tours, F&B outlets, local activities, and offers from exclusive partners such as Disneyland and Legoland, the new “Attractions” tile will help explorers discover new experiences right in their home countries – some of which they may not even be aware of. Grab users can book popular activities such as Aquaria KLCC, LEGOLAND Malaysia and Kidzania Kuala Lumpur; pamper yourself and your loved ones with a sunset cruise at Langkawi; or pick up a new hobby by joining art jamming or pottery classes and support small businesses such as Entopia by Penang Butterfly Farm and Seven Castle that depend on tourism while they are at it.

Grab users can seamlessly and securely book their preferred activities online in real-time at competitive prices, checkout with GrabPay and earn GrabRewards points. Additionally, users can access their bookings or redeem tickets through the Grab app without the hassle of managing physical receipts or tickets.

“Our partnership with Klook gives our users the best way to uncover new experiences locally, which we also hope will drive more support towards businesses that depend on tourism. Full recovery is a long way away, but we look forward to playing our part to hasten the journey by working together with like-minded partners like Klook,” said Jerald Singh, Chief Product Officer and Head of Geo, Grab.

“With months of pent up demand and staying indoors, travellers are eager to turn to their next accessible and available option, domestic experiences. The desire to explore and discover new experiences burns steadily within everyone despite current international travel restrictions. Through this partnership with Grab, we are excited to open new doors for consumers to help keep that fire burning brightly wherever they may be. Additionally, this integration will provide both Grab and Klook users with a more seamless, mobile-first experience to discover and book unique experiences right in their backyards,” said Marcus Yong, Vice President of APAC Marketing, Klook.

Users can expect more features and initiatives to be rolled out within the “Attractions” tile in the coming months, including wishlist and reviews and integration with other Grab services (e.g. book a ride to the attraction or book your admission ticket while on your ride to the theme park).

In conjunction with the launch of Attractions, Grab and Klook are offering RM15 off sitewide with a minimum spend of RM150 between now and October 2020. Grab Platinum and Gold users will soon enjoy additional perks as well.

GrabPay and GrabRewards through GrabPay online acceptance is currently only available in Singapore and Malaysia with plans to roll out to more markets in coming months.
