Gojek is expanding its services in Singapore with the launch of GoCar Premium, an on-demand service for booking rides in luxury vehicles which will be available from 14 February, 2pm onwards.

The service will allow users to book premium taxis and luxury four-seater vehicles. These rides will offer “greater comfort with spacious interiors and plush seating for an elevated experience,” Gojek said in a press release.

GoCar Premium rides will cost 30 percent to 50 percent higher than GoCar. This will also result in increased earnings for driver-partners of the platform, Gojek said. Platform fees for consumers and service fees for drivers remain unchanged.

“We are delighted to launch GoCar Premium as we continue to make strategic investments in Singapore, aimed at strengthening our offering in the market and improving experiences for our users,” said Lien Choong Luen, general manager of Gojek Singapore.

“Consumers can choose to enjoy premium rides with higher service quality and comfort at affordable prices, while new service offerings also provide our driver-partners with increased earning opportunities, helping them to build a sustainable livelihood on our platform,” Lien added.

Riders can also expect improved wait times and greater ride availability as more premium vehicles become available.

Ride-hailing players in Singapore have in recent times started rolling out premium ride services in the country. In May 2021, Grab expanded its suite of premium transport offerings with the launch of GrabCar Exec, a limousine-style service for events or special occasions.

Gojek’s launch follows other recent enhancements to its platform including the launch of GoCar XL, GoCorp and GoTaxi. Users will need to update the app to version 4.34 onwards in order to access GoCar Premium when it launches on 14 February.

In April 2021, Ryde launched RydeLUXE – its premium service that matches users with four and six-seater premium private car hires.
