Best Deals for Hari Raya Puasa Car Rentals 2017

Best Deals for Hari Raya Puasa Car Rentals 2017

It's that time of the year where our Muslim friends in Singapore starts to prepare for Hari Raya Puasa.

If you’re looking to rent a car to travel around during the holiday, here’s a quick gudie on what you need to know about renting with us during this Hari Raya Puasa.

During this period, as everyone travels to visit their friends and family, there will be an influx of people heading to Malaysia or visiting in Singapore with their families.

Quick Background on Car Rentals during Hari Raya Puasa

These are some things that you might want to take note of when it comes to getting around during the Hari Raya Puasa period if you don’t own a car.

  • First, it’s hard to use public transportation during this period, as many people are also doing their own visitations, this means that public transports will be very crowded.

  • Secondly, it will also be harder to get a cab during this period as a lot of the drivers will be on holiday as well. Which means standing longer under the sun.

  • Thirdly, a typical cab can only sit up to 4 passengers which make it inconvenient for bigger family as they might need to get 2 different cab just to accommodate the whole family.

  • Finally, the demand for rental cars during this period will be sky time high for this period. Many people will be looking to rent a vehicle to avoid public transportation to transport their family.

FAQ

We’ve compiled a list of the frequently asked questions that we have received from our customer.

Q1. Why are they all 5 days and 7 days packages? Are there any 1 day rentals?

Majority of the Car Rental companies in Singapore sell 5-7 days packages as these packages help to cover manpower constraints. This will give their own staff to do their own visitations. As a result, they will not be operating during the festive period.
It’s rare to find a single day rental company that is open on Hari Raya Puasa. There may be unlicensed private rentals but we advise against it due to a couple of reasons.

  • Unclear service agreements - It's fine when nothing goes wrong but it is unclear who is liable and what damages are to be paid if something does. Being unclear on what you've agreed on also leaves it to interpretation and they may hold it against you.
  • Insurance coverage - The risks of accidents and costs of repairs should already be calculated and accounted for as a business risk for all legitimate car rental companies. Hence, insurance helps them to mitigate the risks. Private rentals may not have the required insurance and it's also unclear how much damage would you be liable for.

Q2. Why are prices so high? Why is there a surcharge compared to normal days?

  • Instead of booking the rental car on a daily basis, you are required to book the car by a minimum package period of at least 5-7 days. This raises the total price.

  • Demand during the period is overwhelming hence all car rental companies increase their prices during these periods. Eg. Peak Hour Surcharges in Taxis

(To help you with the cost, Drive.SG is now giving Early-bird discount of up to $88 for Hari Raya Rental Packages)

Tips for Renting in Hari Raya Puasa

Tip #1 Book Early

Booking Early means a wider variety of car models at all price points. More popular models or cheaper packages tend to get snapped up early. Larger capacity vehicles tends to be more popular as well.

Drive.SG is now giving Early-bird discount of up to $88 for Hari Raya Rental Packages until 23rd April.

Tip #2 Ensure you’re clear on what you’re renting 

On top of the confounding complexity for first time rentals, there are also additional considerations when it comes to Hari Raya Puasa. Here’s what you should specifically look out for especially when renting during Hari Raya Puasa.

  • Car Specifics

    • Does it cater to Probation Drivers? Does it allow Malaysia Entry?

    • Due to insurance reasons, some rental companies do not rent out to probation drivers or allow Malaysia Entry. Eg. Probation drivers are considered at a higher risk of accident, hence increasing the cost of insurance.
  • Package Dates

    • While majority of Companies only do week long packages, there are slight variations in their dates, usually a difference of one or two dates.

    • Be clear on what type of package dates are available. Eg. 23rd Jun to 30th Jun 2017 or 23rd Jun to 30th June 2017

  • Package Prices

    • The prices quoted would be based on a list that these companies should publish publicly. Always ask for the list, it’s usually priced based on car categories of that car rental partner.

    • Prices vary from partner to partner but usually are upwards of $650 for a 5-Days Package.

Tip #3 Be Clear on Additional Surcharges

  • Heading to Malaysia? Need a child seat? Having a second driver?

  • Be aware that these add ons are typically not included for most rentals and are payable on collection of the car (that way you can still change your mind if you decided not to go to Malaysia)

  • Premium partners may include some add-ons. eg. Second Driver but it's still a good practice to factor them when evaluating the different cars.

 

There are over 100 Car Rental Companies in Singapore, to call every car rental company on the models and rates available to make a full comparison is hard.

Of course, you can find most of these information consolidated on one website at Drive.SG's Hari Raya Puasa's Page, that would make it easier for you to decide which cars you’re looking to book.
