Cycle & Carriage Leasing has inaugurated a new car rental outlet for ‘myCarriage’ at Changi Airport Terminal 3. The new branch offers short-term and long-term leasing for both tourists and frequent travellers.
Strategic Expansion Amidst Rising Travel
Cycle & Carriage Leasing has recently announced the opening of its new car rental branch at Changi Airport Terminal 3. This strategic move is in response to the increasing travel demand and to tap into the burgeoning tourist segment. Subsequently, this branch is the second physical location, with the first at 209 Pandan Gardens, enhancing the reach of the “myCarriage” e-Commerce car rental platform.
Revival of Travel Spurs Growth
Changi Airport welcomed 32.2 million visitors in 2022 and 48 million by October 2023. Consequently, these figures signal a robust recovery in travel post-COVID-19. Therefore, Cycle & Carriage identified this as an ideal opportunity to serve the growing need for short-term car rentals among tourists.

Real-time car availability searches, ensuring instant and accurate inventory management.
The option to select specific car models and colours provides complete control and peace of mind to consumers.
A hassle-free rental process that can be as quick as 2 hours from booking to collection, along with optional home delivery or pick-up services.
Flexibility in rental duration, starting from a one-day minimum, catering to both short-term and long-term rental needs.
Professionally cleaned and disinfected vehicles, ensuring a quality experience for every customer.
Senior Manager’s Insights
