Moving about in Malaysia without a car can be frustrating what more with inefficient public transport and waiting hours under the hot sun or drenching rain. The best way to travel in Malaysia is by using a private vehicle.
For expatriates, though purchasing a car can seem to be a better option, the prices of brand new cars or even second-hand cars can be a considerable cost. This is especially true for foreign cars as the government places high taxes on these vehicles. Car rentals then come into the picture as there are quite a few car rental companies in the Klang Valley.
Car rentals provide you a lower initial cost plus the option to upgrade your car to a newer one as the year progresses. You can be rest assured that the car you are renting is in good condition and all the paperwork is properly maintained.
There is a huge range of vehicles that can be rented out depending on your budget – from A-segment mini cars all the way to F-segment luxury cars. From Fiestas to the S-Class, your choices are endless.
Below are the benefits of renting compared to buying a vehicle:
- Lower initial cost
- No worries – insurance, road tax, repairing and maintenance all taken care of
- Complimentary spare car during vehicle servicing, accident & breakdown
- Limitless distance and open access into Malaysia
- Courtesy 24-Hour breakdown assistance in Malaysia
- 24-hour call centre to assist you
- Driving amenities such as GPS, DVD Players and Child Seats
- Cost-saving on administration, maintenance and others cost
- Ease on Disposal of car
- Let you focus on your work
