Kuala Lumpur Guide


Kuala Lumpur (KL) is a modern busy city,  home to two million people. Situated on the convergence of the Kelang and Gombak rivers, Kuala Lumpur has many colonial-style buildings still standing in its centre. Kuala Lumpur is situated in the Selangor province near the west coast of the Malay Peninsular. Tour the city and its surrounding landscapes by choosing car hire in Kuala Lumpur as your main form of transport. It's also a safe way to travel, and you wont haver to wait about for busy public service buses or trains.

Explore Kuala Lumpur

Hard to miss are the twin Petronas skyscrapers, which are the tallest in the world, dominate the city skyline. In Merdeka Square is a flagpole standing at 95m (312ft).

Merdeka Square is a popular tourist attraction, in the heart of downtown KL, and was originally host to the proclamation of independence in 1957. Nearby, and also of historical interest, you will find the Royal Selangor Club for VIP’s, the Victorian Sultan Abdul Samad building, The National History Museum and city library.

KL's Chinatown, about 300m south-east of Merdeka Square, is a vibrant section of the city with many street vendors and night markets. The central section, Jalan Petaling, is a pedestrianised market and is most spectacular at night, when all of the street stalls, food, haggling and lights create a fabulous atmosphere. Little India is also a fun, bustling place to spend a few hours.

The famous Golden Triangle shopping and commerce area, located in the shadows of the Petronas Towers, is almost a small city in itself. This area also contains expensive hotels, restaurants and nightlife the city has to offer.

Kuala Lumpur is hot and humid all year round, with variable rainfall. The driest, and therefore probably most desirable months tend to be June and July.

Attractions further afield include the city's Green Belt, bird park, trekking and relaxing by the beautiful Tasik Perdana Lake.


By air
The huge international airport (KLIA) proudly boasts state-of-the-art facilities, with inter-terminal shuttle service links and a vast array of international arrivals and departures. It is a busy hub for Asia with stopover flights en-route to Australia and New Zealand from Europe. The airport is located 75km south of the city centre and is a 90-minute trip by coach to or from the city.

Traffic congestion has been greatly reduced in recent years by the introduction of new expressways. Car hire is available from the airport with suppliers operating from the arrival's hall, including Avis Car Rental, Kasina Baru, Hertz Car Rental, Pantas Rent A Car, Insas Pacific Rent A Car, Orix Car Rental and MayFlower Car Rental. Book online to secure a vehicle and choose from a wider selection of cars and our great optional extras.

By train
Alternatively, you can take a train from Nilai Station followed by a bus. Long-distance train journeys operate from the historic old train station, situated around 1 km from KL Central. The frequent Light Rail (LRT) service is the most popular way to see the city when travelling. The city monorail is still yet to open.

By taxi
Taxis are available in either direction and operate on a fixed-price coupon system, available in the airport’s main arrival hall. Taxis are cheap in KL but beware of off-meter fares. The city one-way system does lead to time consuming road trips.

By bus
KL is very well-serviced by bus, and is usually speedy, comfortable and uncomplicated. KL's main bus station is Pudu Raya Terminal, not far east of Chinatown. From here, buses serve destinations all over Peninsular Malaysia, including Singapore and Thailand.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
