Car Rental

Hi All

We have stayed in Penang about 7 times now, and as there will be 8 of us we would like to Hire a Car for a few days and do our own little day trips.

Can anyone recommend a good Car Rental Place that isnt expensive, does'nt need to be a new car, just one that includes insurance etc.

Thanks.

There are many car rental booths as you walk out from the arrival hall. AVIS and IPRAC are two good car rental companies in Malaysia. Definitely with insurance. You can also try using Kasina, they have good conditioned cars and probably a little cheaper compared to AVIS or IPRAC.

Check out the links below for price comparions, make & models and etc.

IPRAC- http://www.iprac.com/

AVIS- http://www.avis.com.my/

Kasina- http://www.kasina.com.my/

I used NewBob last time and they were very good... one of the cheaper companies. Suryia is another discount company I've used who are cheap, butits always a hassle getting the cash deposit back. They insist on keeping it for 14 days to cover any fines.

Just a question on renting a car in Penang. Is it relatively easy to drive around - no crazy traffic like Vietnam??
