Getting a car rental in Singapore can be really difficult and costly if you do not know where to look for it. Here are some easy advices for you to get cheap car rentals in Singapore.

1.) You need a valid Driving license in order to drive in Singapore. All car rental companies in Singapore will request for a valid driving license when driving in Singapore. If you are visiting Singapore as a tourist and has an international driving license, you do not need to convert your license.

2.) If you are working in Singapore. Please note that you will need to convert your license if you are working in Singapore for more than 12 months even if you are holding an international driving license. It is against the law to rent a car in Singapore if you have been working in Singapore for more than 12 months.

3.) Always search around for the best deals. This is one of the best advice you can get. Source around for the best deals in town. You can definitely find them from Google, Yahoo and other search engines.

4.) Always book early in advance. If you are planning to rent a car in Singapore, it is always better to book early. Last minute booking usually more costly and worst situation will be not getting the car you want or unable to rent a car at all.

5.) Save on Petrol. If you do not need a SUV or MPV 7 seater, simply book a simple sedan or hatchback will do. The cost of petrol in Singapore isn't cheap and it is definitely better to use what you need only. Always ask which car is more fuel efficiency to help you make better decision.

6.) Always prepare necessary document. If you are renting a car in Singapore, always prepare your identity card, passport, driving license and cash. Failure to prepare these documents can result in not able to rent a car at all and wasted trip.

7.) Check for dents and scratches. Always check and mark all dents and scratches before driving that car away. You wouldn't want to be accused of a new dents or argue over a new scratches that is really caused by you. So do your part and check properly.

8.) Always return the car on time or earlier. Be smart, do not return the car a few hours later than what you supposed to return. Some car rental companies in Singapore can charged you for 1 day rental even if you return 1 hour later or some charge $10 - $20 per hour for late return. Do your maths and planning.

9.) Your Deposit. Always remember to get back your deposit after you return the car. Most car hire companies in Singapore charged you from $50 to even $200 for the car rental deposit. Be sure to get back your deposit from car rental Singapore.
