Ms April Koh, 31, the general manager of car leasing firm Ace Drive, said rentals for its luxury car fleet have also seen a boost since the pandemic began.
“Because people cannot travel out of Singapore for holidays and what not, customers have come in because they want a joyride, want a luxury car experience, or want to rent a car for birthday occasions and celebratory occasions,” said Ms Koh.
Some have come in to rent a luxury car while waiting for their own new ride to arrive in Singapore, she said. The firm has seen a 75 per cent jump in new customers, of which 20 per cent were customers looking to rent luxury cars.

Demand for Car Rental in General at Ace Drive Has Not Been Largely Affected Despite the Phase 2 (Heightened Alert)
According to April Koh, General Manager of car rental company, Ace Drive, many people wanted to avoid public transportation as much as they can. Hence, the demand for car rental in general, except for the wedding car rental segment, has not been largely affected.
"Some customers have also been asking recently how we clean and disinfect our vehicles. We used to prepare a vehicle for about 15 to 30 minutes. Now, with our enhanced cleaning procedure, it takes us about 45 minutes to an hour to carry out the cleaning and disinfection work," said April Koh.
