Who says you need to own a vehicle to drive one in Singapore? We share the best car sharing and rental services from budget-friendly to easily accessible.
Sure, buying a car in Singapore seems like a fab idea. However, it can be expensive, and there are so many things to consider! Just think about the cost to obtain a certificate of entitlement (COE), road tax, and parking fees – not to mention the price of the car itself. Imagine all the money you can save by sticking to public transport. But we understand there are occasions where having a car just makes things easier – especially if you’re looking to impress a date or take the fam on a day trip around the island. For a more cost-efficient and convenient way to drive, check out some of Singapore’s best car sharing and rental services!

We love that the electric car-sharing service under BlueSG allows us to travel sustainably and do good to the environment.

You’ll be charged for time spent instead of distance travelled. Plus, you can even save money on parking fees as BlueSG covers the cost of season parking in public car parks!
