This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.
Grab is the go, link it to your card so you don't have to hassle over payments / tips. Also, great if the driver doesn't speak any English and you don't speak Khmer. Just get in and get out. Easy as pie.

I use both PassApp (cheaper prices) and Grab (great promotions). Linking a payment card with Grab is the best solution in my opinion, even for a few days.

100% this, I used to be a solid passapp fan , a local set up I was happy to support but the ability to affix a card to grab meant no need for worrying about the correct change.
These apps provide hassle free transport, no need to haggle, no need to explain where you are going (for the most part) no ripping off ergo no need for big arguments where you end up in prison like Mr Downer who would have saved all his woes by using one as it would direct the driver to the destination and not cost $10 (and the rest). They are a god send. So much cheaper and more efficient as well. Gone are the days I'd have to barter with some drunk tuk tuk driver who only knew markets and temples and if you weren't going near any of those you were screwed. $5 to Russian market from street 214 became $1.60.
When I don't feel like driving in traffic in the car or the kids are with me I used ExNet when it came out in 2016....moved on to PassApp...then Grab....now I like TADA the best. 50% off rides twice a day. Drivers have always seemed better educated about the app in front of their face and how to follow a line on a map better than the others. So for me, for now, I say useTada app.
