What kind of rental car should I get for Kuala Lumpur?
Nothing spells fun like a good ol’ road trip, especially when you’re journeying somewhere as fabulous as Kuala Lumpur. With famous attractions like Petronas Twin Towers and Batu Caves, there’s so much to see and so little time. That’s where a rental car works its magic. You’ll be able to cross off many more places — but select something small for easy city driving, like an economy car. If you don’t want to tackle the concrete jungle, Selangor abounds with natural gems. Swap the zippy runabout for something bigger, like a four-wheel drive, and explore the most popular mangroves.

Sometimes it’s all about the journey, which makes your car choice important. If you’re about to head off on an epic road trip around Kuala Lumpur, a spacious SUV could be the best solution. If you’re hoping for the best possible price and plan on sticking mostly to the city, an economy car is a smart pick. All you need to do is choose what’s the best fit, throw your bags in the back seat, and clock up those miles.
