Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Kuala Lumpur car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Kuala Lumpur.
Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Kuala Lumpur car rental.

As changing lanes can be difficult and parking is scarce in the inner city, opt for a compact car that will whizz in and out of the city easier and can squeeze into most parking spots. A smaller car will also cost less and require less gas; however, for families and people who need more luggage space, get a minivan or SUV to gain extra space without going too big.
Adhering to the speed limit posted on signs is pivotal; also, bear in mind that limits are given in kilometers per hour. General regulations allow up to 60 km/h (37 mph) in the city and 90 km/h (56 mph) on state roads. Freeways generally allow up to 110 km/h (68 mph), but if there is rain, strong wind, or the area is mountainous, it may be reduced to 80 or 90 km/h (50-56 mph).
The average price for petrol lies at RM2.22 per liter ($2.12 per gallon). While some petrol stations offer 24-hour service, other petrol stations close at 10pm. Bear that in mind and refuel long before running out of gas. Petrolstations around the airport or alongside highways tend to be more expensive than city stations.
On-street parking in Kuala Lumpur is very restricted and hard to find, so opting for accommodation that already includes a parking space is your best bet. Alternatively, there are car parks and garages that can also be used to park a car, and, especially during the day, parking at a shopping mall while exploring the city is a good option since these parking garages are highly frequented and therefore safer.
