When it comes to price, convenience, and features offered to users of all types, the different apps vary greatly. For example, when it comes to price, Fast Go is the most affordable option, while Grab is the most expensive but provides a better service and experience for foreigners. Convenience is another important factor to consider. All of the apps make it easy for riders to find a ride quickly and easily. However, Vinasun is the only app that allows users to pay for their rides using cash.

Now, we will compare the different taxi and ride-hailing apps available in Vietnam.

Grab

One of these apps is Grab, which allows you to use your phone to find a driver near you who will take you where ever your destination may be. With this app, it’s easy to estimate your fare and book a ride. Additionally, you can pay for your ride using GrabPay, which is a convenient and secure way to pay for your taxi. They also offer booking cars, carpools and more. Grab is one of the most popular ride-hailing services in Vietnam, with a presence in major cities like Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, and Da Nang. In addition to its ride-hailing service, Grab also offers delivery, food delivery, and mobile payments through its platform. Grab is known for its competitive pricing, reliable service, and user-friendly app, making it a top choice for both locals and tourists in Vietnam.

Vinasun

Another popular taxi app in Vietnam is Vinasun. Vinasun is a well-established taxi company in Vietnam that has been operating since 90s. In addition to traditional taxi services, Vinasun also offers a ride-hailing app that is available for both iOS and Android users. Vinasun is known for its fleet of well-maintained vehicles and professional drivers who are trained to provide excellent customer service. While Vinasun’s prices may be slightly higher than some of its ride-hailing competitors, many locals and tourists appreciate the reliability and comfort that the company provides.

Gojek

Gojek is a Southeast Asian ride-hailing and delivery service that has recently expanded to Vietnam. Currently available in Ho Chi Minh City, Gojek offers a range of services including ride-hailing, food delivery, and express delivery. One of the unique features of Gojek is its “Super App” platform, which allows users to access multiple services through a single app. Gojek is also known for its affordable prices and cashless payment options, making it a convenient choice for customers in Vietnam. While Gojek is still relatively new to the Vietnam market, it has quickly gained popularity among users and is expected to continue expanding in the coming years.

Be is a relatively new taxi app in Vietnam. Although it is a relatively new player in the market, Be has quickly gained popularity thanks to its affordable prices and reliable service. Be’s fleet consists of both cars and motorbikes, making it a convenient option for commuters in Vietnam’s busy cities. Be also offers delivery services, allowing users to order food, groceries, and other goods through its app. While Be is not as widely available as other ride-hailing services in Vietnam, it is still a solid choice for those looking for an affordable and reliable transportation option. Be offers a range of services, including motorbike taxis, cars, and delivery services. The app has gained popularity for its competitive pricing and reliable services. Be has already established itself as a serious competitor to Grab, Vinasun, and other established taxi apps in Vietnam.

Fast Go

Finally, Fast Go is another taxi app that is worth mentioning. Fast Go is a home-grown ride-hailing service that operates in several cities in Vietnam, including Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang, and Nha Trang.

There are also several other taxi apps in Vietnam that riders should consider. These include Be Taxi and Mai Linh Taxi. All of these apps offer riders different features and benefits.

So, which taxi app is the best in Vietnam? When it comes to features offered to users of all types, reputation and customer reviews , Grab and Gojek are the clear winners here. These apps offer riders the ability to book rides in advance, as well as the ability to track their driver’s location in real-time. However, it depends on what you’re looking for. If you want an app that is easy to use and has a lot of drivers, then Grab is probably the best option. However, if you’re looking for an app that allows you to hail a cab near you and pay for your ride in real-time, then Vinasun is a good choice. Be and Fast Go are also good options, and they are worth checking out if you’re looking for a new taxi app to try.

I’ve used all of these apps and they’re all great. I’d recommend gojek if you’re looking for a ride-sharing app with the most options, or vinasun if you want to support a local Vietnamese company.

I think the best taxi app is the one that you use most. I’ve used Grab, VinaSun, GoJek, FastGo, Be and many others. They all have their pros and cons. Some work better in big cities while others work better in small towns but ultimately it’s about finding the one that works for you.

I’ve tried all of these apps, and my favorite is Grab.

It’s got the best customer service, the most reliable drivers, and the most reliable payment system.

I think the best taxi app in Vietnam is Vinasun. It’s a Vietnamese-owned company, and they have been in the taxi business since 1999. They are also the only taxi app that accepts cash payments, which can be important when you’re traveling to a new country and just arrived with only cash on hand.

@RinieTran I wonder if Fast Go is a good taxi app to use in Vietnam. It seems like they offer a lot of promotions and discounts, which could be helpful for budget-conscious travelers.

I think it’s a good idea to compare these different taxi apps, but I think it’s also important to take into account the fact that some of them will be more useful in certain parts of the country than others. For example, Grab is probably going to be your best bet if you’re in Ho Chi Minh City or Hanoi, but Vinasun is more likely to be more helpful if you’re traveling through rural areas like Hoi An or Nha Trang.

I’ve been using GoJek and Grab in Vietnam, and I have to say that they’re both great apps. The drivers are all very friendly and knowledgeable about the city, so you rarely have any problems with your ride.

BritishBurton

I think the best taxi app for Vietnam is Gojek, because it’s got all the features you need and it’s easy to use. It’s also available in English and has a great app for your phone, so you can use it in Vietnam without any trouble. I’ve used it several times and have never had any problems with it!

I think the best way to evaluate this is to look at the experience of each company. For example, Gojek has a lot more experience with the Vietnamese market than Grab does. I’ve been using Gojek for over 2 years now and it’s really great!

I have used all of these apps, and I have to say that I definitely prefer Grab over the rest. The user interface is easy to use, and it’s always a pleasure to talk to their customer service team if you need help with anything.

I think this is a good article that compares the different taxi apps in Vietnam. The author compares the four most popular: Grab, Vinasun, Gojek, Fast Go and compares their prices and features. I personally use Gojek because it is cheaper than Grab but if you want to save money then Vinasun is a good alternative.

vietzone

The best taxi app in Vietnam is definitely Grab. It’s really convenient and user-friendly, plus it’s affordable too. I’ve tried using other apps but none of them come close to Grab in terms of service and price.

@vietzone I think it’s important to note that this list doesn’t include Uber. You can’t use Uber in Vietnam because Uber had to pull out of Southeast Asia as it couldn’t compete with other apps like Grab, which is a shame since it’s one of the most popular apps for local transportation in other countries.

Some of the taxi services feel like they are out to scam you so a price comparison would be helpful. Is there a place where you can actually view stats like this? 

Arian

In my experience, Goviet is quite fast but danger:(( It sent my heart jumping in my mouth few times ago. And taxi I don’t really use it in HCM because if you don’t know street well there, you may be deceived around and around. So I think Grab app is the best to use

Didn’t uber or whatever it is called get bought out in Vietnam and doesn’t even operate anymore? I remember reading that somewhere months ago. 

bananamilk
Member

@homeg1rl yes, Uber was acquired by Grab. They couldn’t compete in Southeast Asia.

TeresaNguyen

Mai Linh and Vinasun are the only taxi services I know that are truly taxi services. The rest seem to be similar or exactly like Uber where they are a ride-sharing company.
