KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Kuching

  • Exploring the city’s landmarks while driving car rentals in Kuching has never been better. You can drive to destinations of your choice at your own pace. However, using public buses to travel through the city can be frustrating because of their limitations of time and distance. In addition, most buses are slow because they regularly make stops. If you book a rental car, you can visit Taman Millennium, about 27 km (17 miles) from the city, and Fairy Caves, which is 44 km (27 miles) from Kuching.
  • Kuching International Airport (KCH) serves the city of Kuching. Travelers who need a rental car at the airport can choose from several Kuching car rental agencies, including Budget, Europcar, and Avis, all located at the Arrivals zone of the airport terminal. The airport provides complimentary shuttle services from the terminal to the car-rental offices. Although, sometimes you will find long lines if you try to book car rentals at the airport.
  • The city can be bustling with activities, like people going out to eat and tourists exploring the beautiful city. This can make driving car rentals in Kuching difficult. However, most roads are well paved and clearly marked, so anyone can manage with confidence. You need to drive carefully and stop when approaching crosswalks to protect pedestrians. And remember, drunk driving is illegal. Your blood alcohol concentration should be 0.05% or lower to promote road safety and keep the law.
  • Rush-hour traffic can make it difficult when driving a rental car. It mostly occurs in the mornings and evenings between 7 am and 8:30 am and between 6 pm and 7:30 pm on weekdays. Avoid driving on the Kuching-Samarahan Expressway during rush hour if you don’t want to get caught in traffic. Instead, use back streets in the city or begin your journey earlier if you don't have an alternative route.
  • Book your rental car in Kuching at least 3 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Kuching are around 19% cheaper than other car types, on average

    Driving a large, full-sized car on the road in Kuching is easy, since most roads are in good condition and wide enough for big cars. When choosing a large car from your car-rental agency, you can request their expertise in helping you choose the best type of car for the city. If you’re planning to drive car rentals in Kuching over long distances, think about the vehicle's fuel consumption as a primary factor. Additionally, choose a spacious vehicle to fit all your luggage, so that you enjoy a comfortable journey.

  • What’s the speed limit in Kuching?

    The speed limit when driving Kuching car rentals on freeways is 110 km/h (68 mph). However, this speed will be reduced to between 80 km/h (50 mph) and 90 km/h (56 mph) on tricky stretches of the expressway. The maximum speed you can drive on federal roads is 90 km/h (56 mph). When approaching school zones, residential areas, and hospitals, be prepared to slow down to 20 km/h (12 mph). You don’t have to worry about speed limits on unfamiliar roads because the signs will be installed in different locations on the roads. But you always need to obey traffic-speed laws, because speeding can cost you hefty fines. The city has street cameras to monitor drivers' speed and protect pedestrians and other drivers.

  • Where are the best places to park in Kuching?

    The best place to park a rental car is in downtown Kuching. This area is recommended because of its safety, its proximity to notable streets, and because it’s easy to get on the road whenever you need to drive. Parking-lot charges vary depending on your hours of parking. So, consider the rates before parking to maintain your travel budget. Avoid parking in prohibited areas—like in front of road signs—to avoid paying fines, and remember that finding a parking spot in the city can be challenging. If you park in Hilton Kuching’s parking lot, a covered parking garage that’s open 24/7, you’ll pay around RM5 ($1.10) every 24 hours.
