Singapore's $2-Hour Rental Company Expands Fleet

Tribecar, a Singapore-based short-term car rental company, has increased its fleet fivefold in the last six months, according to a report by the Strait Times.

Launched in March, Tribecar started with 23 cars and is now up to 120 cars, says the report. The rental company charges as little as $2 an hour for a car rental.

“Our ambition now is to have a car in every car park in Singapore, up from our initial target of having one at every other MRT station,” Charlene Kee, Tribecar’s business development manager, told Straits Times.

Tribecar’s fleet consists of Toyota Altis sedans, Mitsubishi Lancer sedans, and Toyota Wish seven-seaters, says the report. The rental rate is the same for the Wish as it is for the sedans. The vehicles can be driven into Malaysia.

Tribecar hopes to reach a fleet size of 1,200 vehicles in the near future, says the report. Initially, it was aiming to reach 500 cars by the end of the year but that target may not be reached in time.

    If you are looking to sign up with Tribecar Singapore Pte Ltd, do note my bad experience with them and FULLY read the terms and conditions.
    Also, please do some research for real user reviews of the company. As of writing, these are the most commonly overlooked terms:
    1. Trying to withdraw your $100 deposit will incur a $5 charge even if you have not made any booking yet.
    2. Any top ups are non refundable.
    3. Withdrawing of deposit will require a waiting time of up to 45 days. And deposit took me 5 min to confirm…

    Once again, not saying that it is a scam, but their website faq and terms conditions are very vague and most of the time, you wont really understand what they mean until you’ve deposited, topped up and try make a booking on their platform.
