Why Renting a Car Makes Sense?

According to the Economist Intelligence Unit’s (EIU) Worldwide Cost of Living (WCOL) survey, Singapore has consistently been listed as one of the most expensive cities in the world. One of the key attributes to this is the high cost of vehicle ownership in Singapore. While public transport is affordable and efficient, it’s hard to beat the freedom and convenience of driving – especially when you are juggling an active schedule and a growing family to ferry around.

 

Whether you’re an expat or local, you may not want to commit to buying a car without careful consideration because vehicle ownership comes with huge financial outlay and responsibilities. Consider renting a car instead – and here’s why you should.

It should not come as a surprise that owning a car is financially and administratively burdensome – with hefty down-payments, insurance, road tax and maintenance expenses to manage. Renting a car, on the other hand, means letting the rental specialists take care of all these while bringing your initial outlay to the absolute minimum.

When you choose to rent a car, you enjoy the full benefit of getting a replacement vehicle delivered to your doorstep every time your car needs to be away – be it for service, repair or inspection. This means zero downtime. It effectively helps to eliminate unnecessary inconveniences when it matters most and aims to provide you with a more carefree experience.

Buying a car is a long-term commitment – and one that many, especially first-time buyers, may not be totally sure about. Imagine being committed to a vehicle only to find that you are not entirely satisfied with your choice over the long run. Renting a car, however, guarantees the advantage of flexibility because you are completely free to choose a vehicle that suits your lifestyle, change your choices as your needs evolve, and enjoy the option to off-hire when you don’t need a car for whatever reason.

What’s better than having complete control over your choices and yet being able to enjoy all the perks of driving? On top of that, you get full predictability of what to expect with all-inclusive rental packages and would never have to deal with unexpected surprises that can come with owning a vehicle. There is also no need to worry about depreciation or the future value of the vehicle.

And finally, the beauty of renting a car is in the variety of choices. There is no need to settle for just one model for the long term. Most rental companies carry a myriad of options from the entry range models to luxury continental cars, small hatchbacks to MPVs for all budget levels. When you rent a car, you’re patronising a competitive market, meaning the services offered to you will be nothing short of the best.

There are more than 100 car rental companies in Singapore from international brand names to local car rental companies. It’s wise to choose a rental provider of good repute who can offer not just a wide range of vehicle selection but also competitive rates and reliable services.

Established for over 30 years, Prime & Section Car Rental is a trusted name in the rental market that is committed to providing a seamless rental experience and efficient services you can always count on.

Renting a car is carefree, gives you control, brings you comfort, and allows you to have the most competitive packages. 


If you’re still in the midst of considering, let’s just say renting is the way to go.
