Malaysia Car Rental Mini Guide

Malaysia is a very tropical and humid country and for the comfort of our customers all of our rental cars have air conditioning systems to keep you cool in the heat. We have a large variety of different cars you can hire in Malaysia, depending on your budget and requirements. If you have a number of passengers to transport then we have larger capacity vehicles available such as the Dodge Caravan or Toyota Minibus 9 seater. If you're travelling on a budget and want economy car hire then we have a great range of cars such as the Toyota Yaris or Ford Focus available to hire.

In order to customise your car rental booking, there are a number of optional added extras you can add on such as child and infant seats and additional drivers. We also offer sat nav as an option, which is really useful when driving in a foreign country when you're not familiar with the road signs or areas.
