3 month car rental?

Post by basil » Thu, 27 Mar 2008 1:47 pm

Hi,

We are looking to hire a car for 3 months, I've called the main international firms and they cost a fortune.
Google sg doesn't bring much up either?

Does anyone know any good companies to use, not looking for a flashy car just something small and simple to get from A to B.

Is it worth going to the car sales yards? - do they sometimes rent too?

Thanks in advance :)

I've used these people for over 20 years, however I've not used them recently (last 5 years or so) but they have always been cheaper than the majority so give them a try. I've always used their balestier location and didn't even know that they have not branched out. (The owner used to keep two old XKE's out back, one a soft top and the other a V12 fastback.) \:D/

While I haven't used him yet, Basil, I have found Jeffrey Mun to be more than helpful. His company is Keng Soon Auto Pte Ltd Mobile : 96362082

Tell him Mr. Pete from Australia suggested you call him.

Good luck!!

I found this family run business much more reasonable than a lot of the other big companies. dont take my word for it, try to call them and find out. I just rented a car from them, service & price beats all others hands down. I manage to get a same day delivery of the car too.

i promised I will spread the word for them, so please let them know Sean from Aus gave you the number :)

I'm sure you will be happy with them just as I have.

hi hok

the prices listed on your site is not really cheap, well I can only comment on 2 cars which I was quoted. The Suzuki Swift(auto) & Honda Fit (auto), I rental a FIT which is 6mths old for far less than what is listed. for be it I'm renting it for > 6mths period. more power to neg if you are renting long term.

Just call the number I put on my last post. or at least do a bit more research before commiting. I couldnt find cheaper for such new cars. Please let me know how you go. Hope I have help in some ways.

Sean
