Is grab allowed for use in Batam and are drivers trustworthy for usage?? Or am I recommended to use their taxis.
yes it is allowed currently. I cannot comment on the drivers though unfortunately.
Would you recommend using grab or the local taxis in Batam?
It is a matter of preference really... but grab is generally cheaper
you can try bird blue taxi (run by meter) but they are not allow to pick up passenger at hotel/ferry terminal/shopping mall.
Yes it's allowed, but not trustworthy as compared to Singapore. Would recommend you take Taxi or your hotel's taxi.
Grab is more trusty than the conventional Cab in Batam. All driver must submit their police clearance and real identity before applying as Grab Driver, furthermore you still able to contact the Grab support centre if ever you forget your belongings inside the car.
