SINGAPORE: More Singaporeans are renting cars and yachts for their celebrations this festive season.

The number of short—term car rentals at Prime Car Rental has gone up by about 50 per cent during the festive period.

The company said MPVs are particularly popular, compared to other cars.

For some, it is all about splurging a bit more to celebrate in style.

"We don’t really visit the Southern Islands that much and we don’t come out to sea very often. So it’s something new," said a Singaporean who had rented a yacht.

A four to five—hour cruise on a yacht can cost between S$1,500 and S$4,000, depending on the size.

MarineBookings said almost all of its vessels have been booked for Christmas Eve and the New Year period.
