If you know you’re only here for a couple of years, or you’re unsure how long you plan to spend here, buying a car in Singapore might be an expensive and risky prospect. If you want the convenience of a personal vehicle without the financial burdens of car ownership, long-term leasing might just be the solution you’re looking for.
One popular provider is Hertz, which offers long-term leasing from 18 months to seven years – that means there’s plenty of flexibility to choose a plan that’s just right for you and your family. Because Hertz is an official leasing partner for BMW, Ford, Peugeot and BYD, you’ll get to pick from a range of high-end vehicles from these brands, along with exciting models from other popular manufacturers. The BMW X1 and X3 are sporty SUVs and among the most popular cars in Singapore for leasing.
Making things easy
In addition to the wide selection of cars, the process of applying for a lease with Hertz is far simpler than buying a car in Singapore because of the all-inclusive plans that are available. Road tax, insurance, servicing and maintenance coverage are all included in the leasing cost. Another tick in the hassle-free box is that vehicle registration is handled by Hertz too.
Once the leasing process is completed, you can get the vehicle delivered right to your doorstep. You’ll also be supported with 24/7 breakdown and recovery service in Singapore and Malaysia, with a replacement vehicle provided during any downtime, giving you peace of mind even when across the border.
Singapore might have an amazing public transport system but there are times when nothing quite beats the convenience of your own set of wheels.
If this has you itching for a new set of wheels, Hertz offers all-inclusive monthly leases for BMWs from just $1,899 nett. Switch from another leasing company and you’ll also enjoy one month free for every year leased (terms and conditions apply).
Sime Darby Services Pte Ltd, a division of Sime Darby Motors Group, holds the franchise license for Hertz International in Singapore. For more information on long-term leases and available cars, visit hertzsingapore.com/expat-living.
