Car rental location Penang Airport

Penang Airport Guide

There are many ways to get to Penang in Malaysia, the fastest of which is through its air hub, the Penang Bayan Lepas International Airport. The airport is situated about 16 kilometres from Penang's Capital City, George Town. The airport connects Penang to other Asian locations such as Hong Kong, Xiamen, Jakarta, Singapore and Bangkok. Its ideal location puts it close to many George Town attractions as well as other prominent locations.

The best way to get around town is by cheap car hire at Penang Airport. Historical buildings as well as religious sites make George Town a great place to explore Penang's past. Among the best monuments in town are the Fort Cornwallis, Khoo Kong Si, Weld Quay and the Penang Museum and Art Gallery.

Prominent religious sites worth a drive by on your car hire at Penang Airport are the Goddess Mercy Temple (Kuan Yin Teng), Kapitan Keling Mosque, Wat Chaiyamamgalaram, and the Dhammikarama Burmese Buddhist Temple.

Also not to miss is the view from the Penang Hill, which overlooks the greatness of George Town and the Penang Bridge. Whether you choose to go hiking or be lifted through the cable train, the cool breezes and atmosphere of the hill provides great contrast to the humid coastal plain.

You could also take your car rental at Penang Airport to various botanic gardens, butterfly farms, reptile gardens and other wildlife and plant houses, especially the Snake Temple where you could observe, and even touch some fairly tamed and devenomed snakes. The tropical spice garden is also a great site where species of exotic flora are cultivated.

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).
