If you’ve just arrived in Singapore and haven’t decided on owning or leasing a car, car rental can be a good start; you’ll soon see how convenient it is to be behind the wheel.
Keng Soon Auto has a fleet of well-maintained vehicles (sedans, SUVs, MPVs and prestige cars) to choose from, that you can lease throughout your stay here. Their hassle-free rental means you don’t have to worry about COE (Certificate of Entitlement), permits, taxes, maintenance or insurance.
Below are just a few ideas for places to visit on your driving adventure!
