I ride with Uber pretty often in JB, but i've always wondered where would be the most convenient pickup point be for the driver at Aeon Tebrau. May i know where you set it to be? Was it along the main road? Thanks
One of the Grab driver told me to try keying in G2000 after carpark entrance under notes. True enough, Grab driver picked us up there for return trip.

grab/uber should be safer than taxi because got car plate+registration with grab.

if you got robbed by uber driver, immediately they know who is the culprit. But if you got robbed by taxi driver, there is a high chance you don't remember the car plate number. Even if you remember the plate may be fake. Grab/uber has no such problem unless you take a car whose driver face is different and car plate number is also different
i kena rob before sia. f up

I took at grab from Aeon Tebrau to Aeon BI, cost $24RM but got promo for $7 off. I paid him $20RM, he quite a nice driver.

I only have wifi so meeting up with the driver was tricky... But the best place to wait seems to be outside mall. Exit from the supermarket, then walk out and u will see a lot of taxi waiting. It must be outside the car park as the car won't turn in.

Grab is pretty safe. Just make sure u check the car license plate and the driver matches what the app shows, and u can actually retrieve details from your ride should u need too. It's actually safer then a taxi, cause even thou taxi need to display the license, we don't really take notice of it or copy it down.

For safety, u might want to let someone know about your trip, and send an update (screen shot) of your driver and car.

But I admit, there are bad people everywhere. I won't say it's impossible that u get rob in the car, even the driver might get "robbed" along with u so he is free from guilt. But it can also happen in a taxi.

Most grab/uber drivers are looking to make some extra income. And most are use to driving foreigners. Just be nice to them, leave them a little tip. They happy. U happy.

I would say , KL hotels generally is not expensive ...
Would advise my friends to stay hotel.
Cheaper ones would be in Chinatown , Pudu area ...
You can also find cheap ones at KL Sentral
One nite, 2* 3* hotel is about 20+ to 30+ ...

how safe ? We wont know ... You have to check their review.
Depending on ur luck, you might get a good one ...

Only for countries such as hk, japan, euro, australia, etc
then would advise my friends to stay bnb ...

thanks for the advise.
Perhaps shall take grab for short distance trips ...
For longer ones such as from Airport to KL Sentral, or KL Sentral to genting.
might take their airport bus or genting bus instead ...

Those using XiaoMi phone and you got Malaysia number you want to know this. Uber and Grab can't work on dual apps.

Solution: use XiaoMi second space function. Register another Gmail account and download Uber and grab apps. By doing this, sometimes the driver may call you or you have to call the driver for locating.
