KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Malacca

  • Car rental in Malacca offers the most convenient means of transportation for exploring both the city and its neighbouring regions. While there are public buses available, having a rental car eliminates the need to adhere to schedules, allowing you the freedom to travel at your own pace. With a car at your disposal, you can easily access various popular destinations from Malacca, such as Malaysia’s capital, Kuala Lumpur, taking around 2 hours by car. There are also the beautiful beaches of Port Dickson, which is about an hour’s drive away, while Batu Pahat is also an hour’s drive, and is well known for its delicious local food and historical sites.
  • If you want to arrange car rental in Malacca and looking to rent from agencies at the airport, your best option is to rent a vehicle from the several companies based at Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KUL). It is a couple of hours’ drive from Malacca, but has the most diverse range of vehicles and rates on offer. You can find the car rental desks easily in the Arrivals Hall of both terminals 1 & 2, and the collection points are located opposite the main terminal, just a few minutes’ walk as you leave the building.
  • When thinking of arranging Malacca car hire, ensure that you have a valid Indian driving licence and an International Driving Permit (IDP) issued by the Indian authorities. The IDP is typically required for tourists from India to drive in Malaysia. If you’re travelling with children, make sure they are secured in a child safety seat at all times, and other passengers are all wearing seatbelts. It’s worth noting that the legal blood alcohol content limit for driving in Malaysia is 0.08%, so it's best to avoid alcohol if you plan to drive. Also, have some local currency (Malaysian Ringgit) ready for the numerous toll roads.
  • As you head out in your rental car in Malacca, to avoid getting stuck in traffic, consider avoiding the roads during the morning (7:00-9:30) and evening (17:00-19:00) rush hours. Specific roads to avoid include Jalan Hang Tuah, Jalan Bendahara and Jalan Bukit Baru, all of which are major thoroughfares in and around the city, regularly filled with commuter traffic. Others to note include Jalan Tun Perak, and popular tourist routes such as Jalan Munshi Abdullah and Jalan Merdeka.
