If for example your plan is to go on a trip world most populous country China or Southeast of Asia, Lyft could come very handy as it could help you get a better way of enjoying your travelling trip. Starting this week, if you are in China, you can hail through its partner Didi if you’re in China and Grab if you’re in SE Asia.
As the case may be, there wouldn’t be any need to download a separate application or set up a newer account to access this but you can pay in dollars with the credit cards you already have on file. So this integration is somewhat easy for travellers to the East Asia.
It also works the other way around: folks from those regions can simply fire up Lyft whenever they visit the US and pay in their own currency just as simple as that.
Both of Lyft’s partners are big ridesharing companies in the continent. Didi as it is has a larger share of the market than Uber in China while Grab has been around longer in Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.
According to Lyft, parts of the deal includes linking its app with other partners in more countries later on in the year. The WSJ once said it’s hashing out a deal in India — so expect its global ridesharing network to continue growing.
