How To Rent A Car In Singapore: The Basic Requirements

A vacation or stint working in Singapore can be a fun and exciting adventure. If you don’t want to get stuck constantly looking at public transportation schedules or hiring taxis to get you where you want to go, you can always choose to rent a car in Singapore. Major international rental companies are represented in the country and can typically be found at or near the major airports.




Your Qualifications

Renting a vehicle in Singapore is similar to the process of renting a car anywhere else in the world. To rent a car, you will need to be at least 23 years old, hold a valid driver’s license from your home country and have at least one year of driving experience. For those who are from a country with a non-Roman alphabet, an international driver’s license will be required at the time of your rental.

The Costs

Renting a car comes with a number of different costs depending on the type of car you choose, your intended location and how many miles you end up traveling on your trip. Any rental company you choose will charge a base fee for the car, then either add the cost of fuel used or require that the tank is brought back full to avoid the fee.

If you are planning to cross the border into Malaysia or Thailand, a surcharge may be added to the total cost of the rental. The final rate that you pay will always cover insurance and third party liability damages, however, you will need to understand what damages you are liable for, even with this insurance. Some drivers are liable for damage they have done themselves to the vehicle. Some renters are also liable for theft unless additional insurance options are available.

Special Needs

If you are looking for equipment that does not come standard with a vehicle, many rental companies will provide that equipment for an additional fee. You can get everything from a car seat for the kids to GPS navigation equipment so that you will always know where you are going. These perks are great for shorter trips or to places somewhere new where you will need assistance getting there.

Renting a car when you are in Singapore is easy as long as you are prepared with your driving qualifications and understand the different types of fees associated with each rental (check the long-term car rental rates here). Once you get your car, you can be on the road and to your destination at your own pace without the need for public transportation.
