GOT A FLIGHT TO CATCH? SOCAR #FTW (FOR THE WIN)

Getting to the airport is less stressful (and more efficient) with SOCAR

SOCAR continues to excite and push the car-sharing movement forward by rewarding all multiflexers*! From now until the end of August 2019, they have introduced special one-way airport rates to make the holiday season more efficient and less stressful. Run those important errands, and send yourself to the airport from just RM30 (excl. SST;) then take advantage of the Hot Deals (as low as RM0) on the way back.

Holidays are blissful, but often leading up to it can really test your patience. Usually, there are many errands that can only be done at the last minute, such as dropping off your pet, completing a task at the workplace or perhaps getting your nails done. Having a car to do all those errands, then just going straight to the airport would make sense, but those overnight parking charges don’t! Here is where car-sharing comes in handy, especially when you need the flexibility of having a car, but without the hassle.

With more than 100 One-way zones on weekdays and 22 One-way zones on weekends from Klang Valley to either KLIA or KLIA 2, it is time you took control of your needs before your flight. Choose from the different car models to suit your needs depending on the number of people and amount of luggage; alternatively, enjoy a leisurely drive alone knowing that you have a parking spot waiting for you at the airport.

With your SOCAR application, just choose the One-way car model you want that is available and closest to you, and you can start driving within 10 minutes - all without having to worry about even touching a car key. You can also get a car delivered to you in Bangsar, Mont Kiara or Bukit Bintang with the D2D service. When you return from your travels, just select from the One-way Hot Deals from RM0 and return the car to the allocated spot for someone else to use. “At SOCAR, we are only just unlocking the power of car-sharing. The key is in building the fleet and community large enough to make cars even more accessible, convenient and available on-demand,” expresses CEO of SOCAR Malaysia, Leon Foong.

“SOCAR embodies the phrase #FTW in so many ways. Especially as the community grows and develops ownership of the entire fleet, it improves the utilisation of every vehicle. This makes it kinder on the environment (and our lungs); saves you from the heavy cost of car ownership; and as demonstrated with One-way bookings, it is a game changer in how you organise your life. Win, win, and win again,” he adds.

The one-way airport bookings were introduced in July last year and have steadily gained fans. To date more than 800 trips have been made and SOCAR is intent on making this number grow exponentially to truly make the car-sharing airport trip a norm for all Malaysians.

With more flexible payment options announced just last month (Credit/Debit Card or GrabPay), it is now easier than ever to join the car-sharing community, and enjoy all the perks of a multiflex lifestyle!
