Ride-hailing app Grab has contacted drivers who rent cars from Lion City Rentals (LCR), urging them to switch over from Uber, whose South-east Asian business it acquired last week.
LCR, which has a 13,000-strong fleet, had an exclusive deal with Uber. On Tuesday, drivers of LCR vehicles received a text message claiming the rental company "is now GrabRentals' exclusive fleet partner". "This means you will now be eligible for exclusive Grab incentives," it added. "LCR weekly rental rebates will be continually paid out if applicable."
