KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Kuching

  • Kuching is the capital city of the Sarawak state in Malaysia and a very populous city in the region. Car hire in Kuching offers a great opportunity to explore the surrounding areas on your own steam, without having to rely on figuring out the public transport system. You can hop in the car and make your way to the famous Bako National Park or Semenggoh Nature Reserve and park your car there for a while.
  • Kuching car hire couldn't be easier than it already is. There are several companies operating from Kuching International Airport (KCH), including major companies like Hertz and AVIS, offering the premium deals they're known for. You'll find the car hire agencies located inside the arrivals hall of the main terminal. Make your way down to Level 1 and find them close to the luggage claim area. Once you've completed the forms and agreed on a car, you'll be escorted to the parking garage, where a final check will be done and you'll get the keys to the car.
  • Driving a car hire in Kuching is similar to driving through many major cities in Southeast Asia, except it's not as busy as major cities like Penang, Bangkok or similar cities. Traffic can be busy at times, and you'll have to be aware of what other drivers are doing, as often the rules of the road aren't observed keenly. Avoid roads during the morning peak hour traffic roughly between 07:00 and 08:30, and peak hour in the evening around 18:00, as the roads can almost slow to a stop.
  • Driving in Kuching is quite laid back, especially when compared to major cities like Penang and Kuala Lumpur, so there isn't much to worry about when it comes to difficulties driving there. Rush hour traffic can get very slow, and driving around town or the party spots at night will be very busy. Other than that, take standard precautions and make sure you have adequate insurance in case something goes wrong.
  • Book your car hire in Kuching at least 3 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy car hire in Kuching are around 22% cheaper than other car types, on average
