Customer questions about Kuala Lumpur car hire

Hi, I just wanna check the rates, does it include comprehensive insurance cover?

Hi, yes all of our rentals include full insurance cover, however as with any car insurance policy there is an excess should you make a claim (damage the car etc). You can add on our Full Protection cover to insure this excess, or take the agents own policy, however both are optional, all the insurance covered required to legally drive the car is included as standard.

I am in Kuala Lumpur and wishing to hire automatic transmission car for 10 days can you assist.

Hi, certainly, you can run a quote from the website or please let me know your required dates and times and I can run a quote for you here. You can filter results to show only automatic's in the car hire search results.

Hi, I have a question regarding the closing time of the Kuala Lumpur city rental office, do you have this information? I would like to book a car to do a day trip but would prefer to return it in the evening so I don't have to find parking in downtown KL.

Hi, if you put your desired return time in the search box our system will only allow a return time when the rental office is open, so if you see results for your desired time then you will be able to return the car at that time. Otherwise, we can check the office closing time as each rental agent will have different opening hours.

Kuala Lumpur Mini Guide

A Rapidly Growing City
Kuala Lumpur or "KL" as it is more commonly known is a city which has rapidly expanded from a small town to a city of around 6.5 million people. It is the capital of Malaysia and one of the major cities in the Far East, being a business and financial centre and a tourist destination it is popular with all kinds of travellers. Many people also visit for a very short time as it is one of the major stopover points between the UK and Europe and Australia and New Zealand, so one or two nights in KL provides a welcome break from travelling and helps with the jet lag.

Must Sees
Petronas Towers:
Even if you are only in KL for a short time there are several “must see” attractions, the major one being the Petronas Towers which is the worlds tallest twin towered building.  At 88 storeys tall the towers are joined by a sky bridge at the 41st and 42nd floors, this gives a fantastic view of the city and best of all it's free!!  However visitors do need to have a pass, a limited number of these are issued daily, so to make sure you get one it's best to arrive early – 7.00am is not unusual for people to start queuing.

Central Market:
This one time “wet market” is now the centre in KL for the sale of local crafts and other merchandise.  Whilst there are lots of modern shopping malls in the city, if you are looking for something different to remind you of your time in KL, you're sure to find what you're looking for there.

Chinatown and Little India:
Much of Malaysia's population is made up of Chinese and Indian people, as you might expect they have congregated in their own areas of the city inspiring it with their own cultures. Haggling is a way of life shopping in both of these areas and just walking around the streets is an experience in itself.

Eating in KL
KL is a food lovers paradise, due to the high number of immigrants over the years you can find almost every sort of food imaginable, from street stalls and hawker centres selling local snacks, to fast food chains from the United States, with everything in between, including gourmet restaurants if you want to treat yourself – rest assured whatever you choose you won't be disappointed.

Getting Around KL
Hiring a car in KL gives you the opportunity to visit some of the “real Malaysia” outside of the cosmopolitan city, why not try a trip to the Genting Highlands, about an hours drive away this hill station offers a slightly cooler climate than the city and also a total change of scenery.

Latest Update from Kuala Lumpur:

16/06/12 - On the 16th September, the country celebrates Malaysia Day and nowhere is better to see it than in KL. Parades, concerts and flowers mark the day and it's a big event all over the country.

It’s likely that you’ll be staying in the area of the city known as the golden triangle. From there, if you have a hire car, most of the interesting parts of the city are easily accessible.

Top of the list should be to ascend one or both of the Petronas Towers for an incredible view across the city. On the way up, stop at the sky bridge for a more unusual and scary view of the city below. In this area too you’ll find the major shopping malls including Megamall in the Midvalley part of the city.
