Once we were done with our share of adrenaline pumping adventures, we decided to unwind with a road trip. Nothing sounded more appealing than zipping down a road, with the wind in our hair and our favourite music playing. Believe it or not, there is something immensely therapeutic about road trips and Singapore, with its well developed highways, great roads and easy accessibility to other Southeast Asian countries, makes for a great choice to embark on one. The coolest thing about this was Mastercard's lease rental (Hertz) with amazing packages on offer. Ours included full vehicle insurance, mandatory road tax and insurance, 24-hour breakdown assistance services, unlimited mileage in Singapore and Malaysia and a replacement vehicle during repairs or servicing! The offer was available for Toyota Alphard, Toyota Estima and Ford Galaxy. There are no prizes for guessing the trip went as smoothly as possible and left us with many fond memories we will cherish forever.
This was the first time an international vacation didn't leave me absolutely distraught. I made friends from all over the world, let myself experience new things and didn't get flustered with currency conversions and exchanges. I wasn't paralysed with fear of getting overcharged or cheated due to lack of knowledge of currency denominations, or even worse losing my money! I didn't have to constantly keep track of my expenses because I knew every penny I spent was on record and I was reassured knowing it'd be easier to calculate my expenses when I returned. And the best part? Discounts, discounts and more discounts!
