Car hires in Singapore: practical information

Where to rent a car in Singapore

Heading to Singapore? This city-state in Southeast Asia is a treat to visit. Start planning your holiday with cheap flights to Singapore and while you’re comparing deals, make sure to check out the car hire offers as well. From Changi Airport, choose from Avis and Budget at Terminal 1; Avis, Budget and Hertz at Terminal 2; and Avis, Budget and Hertz at Terminal 3.

From Singapore city centre, you’re more likely to find local car hire agencies but most major hotels will also have their own car hire facilities available to both guests and non-guests. It’s also possible to hire electric cars in Singapore, so you’ll save on petrol costs.

Driving in Singapore: parking and other tips

Renting a car in Singapore is only a popular option if you’re planning on travelling around the surrounding regions a lot. You won’t need one to get around the city centre. Road conditions are very good in Singapore and local driving habits tend to be quite good.

Parking is relatively easy in Singapore, at least compared to other places like Tokyo and Hong Kong. There are plenty of car parks but rush hour traffic can be something of a frustration. You’d be wise to choose a hotel in Singapore that also has a car park.

Road trips from Singapore: what to do, what to see

Bintan

Bintan

This Indonesian island is just short of an hour away by ferry and is a popular trip for an authentic Indonesian experience. Visit the beaches around Sumpat, trek through the rain forests and stay the night in a beachside hut. Local wooden handicrafts are very popular.

Tioman

Tioman

They don’t call Tioman “Paradise Island” for nothing. This small island is within the Mersing Marine Park and has some spectacular beaches, forests and coral reefs, which is why it’s such a popular destination for scuba divers.

Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur

Malaysia’s vibrant capital is but a few hours drive away from Singapore and will certainly be a highlight on your trip to Southeast Asia. Take a tour of the city’s colonial centre and don’t miss the Golden Triangle where the city’s iconic Petronas Twin Towers are located.
