Drive in Malaysia with Drive.MY

Drive in Malaysia with Drive.MY

Drive.MY would like to give some useful tips on the Malaysian Car Rental and Driving Experiences to be expected.

Car Rental Malaysia

The joy of renting a car is flexibility, whereby you can go to wherever you want whenever you want. You also have space to keep your luggage or the odd souvenir instead of lugging them around. The frustrating part is finding your destination in an unfamiliar world. A detailed street map or GPS are essential if renting is on your agenda. It would be an added advantage if you have traveling company as they can help as navigators or spotters. Drive.MY will always assist if you need navigation assistance. Car rental in certain places in Malaysia, like Pulau Langkawi(Duty Free status Island), is in fact the best option because it is cheap and public transportation not very good.

License-Legal driving age in Malaysia is 18 years old but many car rental companies require a hirer to be at least 23 years old and have held a driver’s license for at least 2 years. Some 21 years with 3 years driving experience. An international driver’s license is not required, but a valid national license is needed.

Insurance & Safety – Insurance will be provided but always check what the extent of the coverage. You might want to take out your own insurance or pay the rental company extra premium for insurance excess reduction. Driver and front passenger are required to wear their seat belts at all times. If you have a mobile phone, do not use it while driving, which is against the law. To avoid theft of belongings, always park at a place which is bright and visible.

Car Rental Prices – Rates start at RM130 for a day for a Malaysian built Perodua Viva but varies accordingly, with the major car rental companies being more expensive. However major car rental companies do provide better service in terms of having more offices located throughout the country, where you can drop the car off or contact when there is a problem. Drive.MY gathers all the best car rental deals into one portal and making it as the largest marketplace for car rental in Malaysia.  The more days the car is rented, the cheaper it is charged per day. Hence we are committed to serve our customers with a worthy deal.

Now, move on some of the driving experience to expect when driving in Malaysia especially on major cities. Malaysia uses the “drive on the left” system, similar to those in United Kingdom and many of its commonwealth countries. Cars stay on the left side of the road on a two way road. On a two or three lane road, the slow lane is the left lane and right lane is used for overtaking and driving at higher speeds. Driver’s steering wheel is located on the right side of the car. The roads in Malaysia are generally in good conditions and quite extensive. Highways link major cities and town roads reach out to every nook and corner.

Driving in Malaysia is quite an experience altogether. Let’s say the driving experience, especially in big cities, would be similar to that of many “bad boy” reputation cities in the world. For instance, Miami USA, Naples Italy and Buenos Aires Argentina. By this we mean that you can expect some cars not stop at stop signs, red lights being beaten occasionally, speed limits being beaten routinely, cars cutting in front of you or sometimes tailgating you if you are the much slower car. After midnight, for some drivers, the law book is out of the window and red lights, especially at housing areas, pose as decorations only. All this is done with a certain degree of caution of course, although accidents are caused by such behavior. The good news is that there is hardly any blaring of the car horns as Malaysians found out that it is totally ineffective many years ago. It is a matter of adjusting for the traveler. There are also many sane, safe and law abiding drivers around.

Traffic congestion is a problem in big cities, particularly Kuala Lumpur and Penang. If you get caught in a traffic situation and gets lost on the roads, be prepared to wait it out. Cars cost a zillion in Malaysia because the taxes are high, but it has never stopped the population from buying them in droves.  The local car manufacturers Proton and Perodua sell the majority of the cars in Malaysia, although competitively priced foreign cars has eroded its market share in recent years.

Speed Limits

The speed limits in Malaysia are 110km/h on Motorways, 80km/h outside of built-up areas and expressways and 50km/h within towns.

Petrol Stations & Prices

Petrol in Malaysia is currently undergoing a shift in the petrol policy, whereby every month the petrol price follows the average world oil price. Although engines of diesel cars have gone thorough leaps and bounds in terms of technology, diesel cars are not popular in Malaysia, and thus not common.

Petrol stations are widely available and popular brands are Shell, Mobil, Esso, BP, Petronas and Petron. Petrol stations service include pumping petrol, pumping tire air, washroom and some providing a car service, a small mart, ATM withdrawal and car wash. Pumping petrol is done by you. First go to the cashier located at the station, let the person behind the cashier know which bay number your car is located at and how  much you want to pump. Pay the amount and then proceed to pump your car. If you have not pumped your car yourself before, do ask help from the station attendance. If you want a full tank, do let the cashier know beforehand and proceed to pump first. When pumping stops, proceed to pay the cashier the amount due, which is listed on the pump machine. Credit cards are accepted too. Swipe the card at the pumping machine and key in the amount you wish to pump. Wait for the signal which will let you know when it is ready. When it is ready, proceed to pump. Do ask for assistance from the attendance if you need any.

Car parking in Malaysia

Open public car parks charge from RM4.00 to RM10.00 per day, which is cheap. Shopping malls charge in between RM1 to RM3 per entry outside Kuala Lumpur. Meter parking is also available on streets with maximum charge at RM5 a day. Hotel car parks are charged by the hour at RM3 and can be expensive if you do not have a function. If you do have a function, a flat rate of RM10.00 is chargeable, but must get your ticket validated for this price. A habit of Malaysians is to park wherever there is a space which is not obstructing to others and risk getting a ticket. At times they do block others due to the acute lack of parking. If you find yourself in such a situation, just sound the car horn and within a minute, the driver will come running out apologetically and move his or her car out of the way. This is due to the many cars and lack of parking space in Cities and Towns.
