“Went to Greece (Santorini) recently and called the Singapore office for help for my overseas rental. Though I have not rented in Singapore before, just wanted to thank Ms Asha and Chahaya for their help on my questions about driving in Greece. They helped me source patiently for a reasonable price and I got an Audi A3 upon arrival which was perfect for our luggages. Overall, great trip! Great assurance 👍 especially when I couldn’t find the info online.” ~ Corinne Sim via Google Reviews

“For ease of doing business and cost of a long term rental in SG, this is a top choice. Had the pleasure of working with Fadil during my selection and contracting process. He is knowledgeable, efficient and easy to work with on the sales side. And so too is the other staff I have worked with during the first few months. Front desk was very fast and knowledgeable, service staff handled a flat tire very quickly without me needing to do anything, and the accounting staff were helpful and attentive to client needs.

“I am a regular customer of Ride Now. I like how Travis is flexible and handles things very efficiently. Even if they don’t have the car I want specifically, he will find a replacement and make arrangements for me to get my ideal car. Their mechanics are also very on the ball, they listen to my feedback and actually maintain the cars according to my complaints! Very different from other car rentals where they ignore and say “still can drive la”. Even during this Covid season, I had to return my car temporarily but they were also not sour about it, they understood my plight and we both compromised. This is why I will always go back to them. The front desk is also so friendly I will buy them coffee sometimes :)” ~ Wong Hong Sui via Google Reviews

“Rented a Subaru Impreza (M) over the weekend for personal use and I must say the car is great! The interior is clean, the exterior though with scratches here and there but that’s understandable. Had a conversation with Dan and he is very friendly and professional in handling the deal. 5/5 service + he further touched up the car before renting to me. It was a very pleasant experience and I will come back in the future. Highly recommended!” ~ Shi En via Google Reviews

“I normally tried a service a few times before giving a good review, this place is the best car rental place for me so far.  I had rented from them a few times and doing business with them is easy. Dan is very helpful and gives his very best, besides Dan I only deal with the other 2 guys and the lady behind the counter (didn’t catch their name) and they were equally polite and wonderful. I think they are a great team and it is a good place to rent the type of cars you want. I gave them 5 stars as i have rented in many places and so far this place gave me the reasonable, best value for money and best service in terms of rental for personal use.
