A pessimist might say that your budget is a mathematical confirmation of your suspicions. But we are not pessimists! It may take some homework to find creative ways to save money in Singapore, but it’s worth it.

To make your day a little better, here is more Budget Direct Insurance advice on how to save your hard earned cash. In the latest of this series, here are ways to find free parking in Singapore.

1. Plaza Singapura, Orchard

The deal  Free parking for your first hour from 10.00am to 5.59pm on Mondays to Fridays. Subsequent 15 mins or part thereof: $0.32 
6.00pm - 11.59pm: $2.14 per entry

Exceptions  Saturdays, Sundays, Eve of Public Holidays and Public Holidays.

Note  The Plaza Singapora carpark is cheaper than many in Orchard, but watch out for the ERP gantries after 12pm on the Prinsep side.

2. Far East Plaza, Orchard

The deal  Free parking daily for first hour from 8am-5pm (1st entry only); $2.14 for next hour; $1.07 for sub. ½ hr.
