5 things you didn’t know about rented cars

Here are 5 things you probably didn’t know about renting cars from SingaporeCarRental’s website.

1. No need to refuel

You may have spotted a rented car parked right outside the drop-off location at the airport, and wondered why it didn’t come back with a near-empty tank. Under normal circumstances this would be a dead giveaway that someone did not return the car, but this is no ordinary rental – when you hire an Economy Car (such as Ford Fiesta), there’s no need to pay for expensive petrol or diesel; if you go over your mileage allowance, it’ll simply deduct the equivalent amount in cents per mile from your deposit! This feature does require certain conditions, however: The supplementary insurance must be selected (and applicable), and an end-of-hire inspection report must be signed off before you’re allowed to leave the lot.

2. No need to wear shoes

It’s true! Renting a car from us means that you can go around shoeless all day long, so if you’ve got an aversion to wearing footwear or simply wish to save time on dressing in the morning, this is your golden opportunity – there’ll be no extra fee whatsoever! It’s possible, but not compulsory though; if for example one of your socks gets stuck in the pedal area and it causes an accident then we will hold you responsible and charge accordingly (although we think that’s unlikely…)

3. No need to use tolls roads

If you’re travelling around Singapore with a rental car, there’s no need for you to pay any toll fees! Traveling between the two locations with a hired vehicle is allowed, and that includes all the expressways and ERPs (and all other major crossings). One thing: You may only use the tunnels with your car; tolls are payable at most toll gates, so make sure you plan accordingly before attempting such a crossing.

4. No need to search online for coupons

When you book with us, we already know what offers apply to your journey – we can tell which coupons offer discounts including those covering young drivers, weekend rates and senior citizens, or which you can claim online on our site through various organizations. Some require an active account while others don’t, but you’ll need to make sure that your car hire comes under one of their partner companies – check the terms and conditions on each website for further details!

5. No need to wait in long lines

Yes, it does happen; no matter how early you book your car hire with us, there may be queues upon arrival at the actual location. If we say we’ll deliver your car to you at a specific time, we’ll do our utmost to make sure it’s on time!
