    Default Tips for car rental in Singapore to Malaysia travel



    Before Setting Off

    Prepare for the long distance driving after looking for car rental in Singapore to Malaysia

    * Have a good night rest before leaving on a trip
    * Plan route and take breaks every 2 hours
    * Bring your sunglasses and plenty of drinking water
    * Wear comfortable clothing and adjust seat to optimum comfort level
    * Do get a co-driver
    * Research on all the relevant information about your route. Obtain an updated map and information from books or from friends and relatives who have recently travelled there. Maps are available at Streetdirectory.com. You can consider loaning a GPS.
    * Bring along car jack, torchlight, breakdown triangle sign, wheel spanner, tool kit & car Owner’s Manual
    * Carry Driving License and International Driving Permit, Car Owner’s Manual, copy of motor insurance policy, spare ignition key, copy of vehicle log card and passport, anti-theft devices i.e. a steering wheel lock.
    * Buy a Travel Insurance

    There are rest and service areas, located at every 50 to 100 km along the North-South Highway.

    Pre-Trip Car Inspection

    * All Oil fluids’ level should be at optimum
    * Check car battery water level. Battery cables should be tightly connected and corrosion-free
    * Check brake pedal. If it feels “spongy”, get it checked by mechanic
    * Ensure lights, instrumental panel indicators and seatbelts are in proper working order
    * Check and adjust tyre pressure (including spare tyre) and tread depth to see if any of the tyres need to be replaced. Increase tyre pressure based on your car owner’s manual if you are carrying heavier loads and traveling at high speed.

    During Driving

    * Drive carefully and always be alert to the other motorists and your surroundings
    * Keep a lookout for animals crossing. Do not sound your horn, and do not attempt to feed them
    * In kampong areas, look out for children playing, cyclists and other road users
    * Do not stop your car along the highway. To stop, drive off the highway and into the special lay-byes.
    * Do not U-turn along North-South Highway. It’s illegal. To U-turn, first exit the highway
    * Speed limits for most stretches of the North-South Highway is either 90 or 110km/hr
    * When met with an accident on rural roads, DO NOT alight from your car but drive straight to the nearest police station.
    * If you have to drive through a flood, engage first gear & move forward slowly to avoid stalling the engine. Rev your engine to prevent backflow into exhaust pipe
    * Crosswinds may cause your car to veer off course. Look out for warning signs at spots particularly prone to this. When you encounter a strong wind, slow down to maintain control of your car

    During Breakdowns

    * If possible move your vehicle off the carriageway onto the road shoulder, or drive into the nearest rest area
    * Switch off ignition
    * Switch on hazard lights to warn other drivers
    * Place the reflective hazard triangle at least 30m behind the car so motorists know well in advance there is a potential hard ahead
    * You may wish to also open your car bonnet and boot to be more visible to other approaching motorists
    * Look out for emergency public phones located every 2km along the highway
    * While waiting for help, do not stay in the car or stand in front or behind it. Stand at the side furthest from traffic and behind guardrails if any
    * If you are driving a rental car and it breaks down, you should call your car rental company for assistance
