Exploring Singapore with my Australian Friends in a Lexus RX350

Drive.SG - Singapore's Largest Online Car Rental Portal - Last weekend, I was really happy to be able to take my Australian friends out to explore Singapore and to be sponsored by the top car rental website in Singapore - and CL Leasing. As most of you are aware, I am currently driving a Mercedes SLK - a 2 seater sports convertible. Hence I needed to rent a car to take my 2 friends from Australia out to explore Singapore. 

GOOGLE SEARCH - I went onto Google to search for car rental and found DRIVE SG as the Number 1 car rental website in Singapore. I checked out their website and was impressed by their long list and wide range of different type of cars available for car rental from a normal Saloon to Luxury and even to their Sports and Exotic cars for rental. With their huge range and wide variety of cars, you will definitely be able to find something suitable for your special drive occasion!

Why RENT A CAR in Singapore?
- Cars in Singapore are considered expensive and it is not very economical to own a private car.
- The COE is around, SGD$61,000+ for July 2014 (you can buy 2 cars at this price in other countries).
- Singapore's government is encouraging people to take Public Transport
- Singapore's public transport system is one of the cleanest, safest and best in the world
- The number of ERP (Electronic Road Pricing) system in Singapore makes driving around Singapore more costly especially around the CBD area or in the City.

Popular reasons for Car Rental:
- Big Family Group Outings - renting a SUV or MPV which can seat 7-8 people
- Special Occasions like Chinese New Year, Hari Raya, Deepavali house visits.
- Luxury Birthday Party Celebrations in a Limousine.
- Tourists exploring Singapore for a day, a week, or even a month
- Wedding Convoy
- Road Trips to Malaysia
- I rented a car, because my car was too small to bring my overseas friends out.

On Friday night, I had  a staycation at Adonis Hotel. On Saturday, I was suppose to pick my Australian friends Clara and her partner from Changi Airport at 12pm noon and show them around Singapore so I needed a rental car at 10:30am in the morning.

Just 2 days before, I went onto Google Chrome on my Iphone, and googled "Car Rental Singapore", was the 1st website that pop up. I believe that what is listed 1st on Google search results must usually be the best and most trustworthy.

STEP 1 - When I went into the the website, I was very impressed. It was so easy to use. All I needed to do was to put in the dates I wanted to Rent a Car. I was able to book a rental car in less than 60 seconds! Quick, fast, reliable and extremely efficient! I love getting things done quickly without much hassle.

Renting a Lexus RX350 - I was really happy that rented me a Lexus RX350. It was big, spacious and luxurious. It was the perfect car to bring my Australian friends out. Natasha also joined in! So in total, we had 4 people seated comfortably in this car. This huge car has 2 seats at the front, and 3 seats behind but as it is so spacious, you can actually easily fit 4 people behind.

Drive SG had an excellent service of sending the Lexus RX 350 Rental Car to me. I stayed at Adonis Hotel at 13 Purvis Street on Friday night. Hence, on Saturday morning, they sent the car over to me at 10.30am in the morning. All I needed to do was to sign some documents and put a safe deposit of SGD$200. Best customer service ever!

Natasha and I set off to the airport to pick Clara and her boyfriend up. Clara and her boyfriend, Alex, were able to sit comfortably in the back seats. The car boot space was sufficient for Clara and Alex to put their luggages, as well as Natasha's and my clothes from the previous night's hotel staycation - Adonis Hotel. 

Our 1st stop was to eat Singapore's famous Hainanese Chicken Rice! Natasha and I decided to let Clara and Alex try Katong's 5 Stars Chicken Rice, located at 191 East Coast Road.

That's a lot of Singapore's food for a couple with less than 10 hours in Singapore. 

The next morning, I was suppose, to return the car at 10.30am. Exactly 24hours rental. As i rented it on Saturday morning at 10.30am, so I have to return that car on Sunday morning 10.30am too. 

I love how comfortable and smooth the drive is in the Lexus RX350 :)
