If you do business with a car rental company in Singapore, you may miss out on opportunities to save money or enhance your rental car experience at no additional cost. Here are a few straightforward hacks that will have you renting like a road warrior in no time.
1. Book in advance and monitor your quote.
Short term car rental rates vary in Singapore, just like the cost of airline tickets. Car rentals, however, typically don't charge a cancellation fee, unlike airline tickets. You can cancel and rebook at a lower price if prices drop before you pick up your car. The best course of action is to make reservations as early as possible and then keep an eye on prices moving forward.
2. Maximise all memberships.
Almost certainly, you are a member of at least one organisation that can help you receive discounts on car rentals. Do you use membership grocery stores? Are you a member of the military or a teacher? Did you sign up for loyalty awards when you bought a 2nd hand car for sale in Singapore? Memberships with these and other organisations entitle you to discount codes that provide excellent rates and, in some cases, additional perks such as free additional drivers.
3. Join a loyalty club.
Membership in a rental car loyalty programme involves more than accumulating points. Status in a programme allows you to bypass the counter and go straight to your car. Loyalty programme members can sometimes get a higher-category car than booked. Loyalty programmes for rentals are usually free, so there are no downsides. Moreso, there are many benefits - like customer discounts for a used lorry for sale in Singapore.
4. Choose your credit card wisely.
Choosing the additional insurance option (collision damage waiver, or CDW) offered at the rental car counter is the quickest way to incur substantial additional charges. If you own a vehicle, your auto insurance probably covers rental vehicles. In addition, several credit cards include built-in coverage for rental car damage costs that exceed what your auto insurance will cover.
