Tips for renting a car in Singapore Downtown

Before you rent
Choose wisely. In 2019 we introduced our multi-product system which helps you choose a car based on your needs and easily see the final price. Car rental insurance can be tricky to navigate and often isn't what you expect, by booking with us direct you'll receive the correct insurance for your rental.

When you collect your vehicle
Plan ahead. We recommend planning your route before you leave, especially when renting a car at an airport. Are you sure where you're meeting your chaperone or where the rental desk is? Your confirmation email will have the contact information for the location, so we suggest saving the number in your phone ahead of time.

Have the correct documents ready. We try and keep the check in process as painless as possible but we do need to process certain information for legal reasons so having these ready ahead of time can help speed up the process. Make sure you have your booking details ready, along with your driving licence, passport and valid credit card.

Complete a vehicle check. It's essential when you are taken to your car you complete a Vehicle Condition Report (VCR) and note any existing damage, paying particular attention to the five damage hotspots. If you don't report this, you may be liable for these damages when you return the vehicle. We don't want you to get caught out, so we've put together a handy vehicle inspection video to help you check everything thoroughly.

While you rent
Take care. Unfortunately you may be liable for any damage caused to a vehicle in your care, and this will vary depending on the product you choose. A large proportion of damages to any car can be dings you pick up in car parks, so be mindful when space is limited and park further away and walk a little further to your destination.

When you return your vehicle
Complete a vehicle check. It's time to carry out a VCR again and even more essential to fully log any damage, no matter how small, to ensure you are fully covered and we can process your return effectively. Be sure to check the vehicle as before, paying special attention to the five damage hotspots.

Good to know about car hire in Singapore Downtown, Asia


Once you have landed in Singapore and picked up your rental car from the designated office at Singapore Downtown or airport, we wish you a safe and delightful journey.

If it's your first time in Singapore, take a moment to get acquainted with your rental vehicle, understand local traffic regulations, and plan your routes. Note that driving in Singapore is conducted on the left side of the road.

Singapore boasts well-maintained and clearly marked roads, making driving relatively straightforward for those familiar with urban driving conditions. However, the city’s dense traffic and strict driving laws can pose challenges. High tolls and fees also exist to manage road congestion, notably the Electronic Road Pricing (ERP) system, which charges drivers entering the busiest parts of the city during peak hours.

For tourists wanting to drive, those holding a foreign license are allowed to drive in Singapore for up to 12 months. However, the license must be in English or accompanied by an official English translation if it is not. Tourists from ASEAN countries can use their national licenses without needing an International Driving Permit (IDP), but others are advised to obtain an IDP along with their national license before driving in Singapore.

The city-state has stringent rules regarding alcohol consumption while driving; the legal blood alcohol limit is 0.08% for most drivers, but penalties can be severe even at lower levels if driving is impaired.

Traffic in Singapore is well-regulated and generally flows smoothly, thanks to comprehensive traffic management systems and regular enforcement of traffic laws. However, during peak hours, congestion is still a common occurrence, especially on major roads and expressways.

If you need help while in Singapore, don't hesitate to contact our office. In an emergency, the national emergency number is 999. For non-emergency situations that require police assistance, you can dial 1800-255-0000. Additionally, there is a separate emergency hotline for the Singapore Civil Defence Force, which handles fire and emergency ambulance services, and that number is 995.
