KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Miri

  • As it's a relatively small Malaysian city, car hire in Miri is the way to go to explore all the tourist attractions in the surrounding region. In fact, the city's main tourist landmark, Canada Hill, can only be reached by car. A celebrated temple in Miri, San Ching Tian, is also a few kilometres away. It's also more cost effective to have your own car rather than paying for taxis to take you out of town.
  • Miri Airport (MYY) has a single terminal, so it's very easy to spot the car hire kiosks. Some are in the central area of the Arrivals hall, after you've collected your luggage, while you'll find others near the terminal exit. Once the final admin has been done, the hire car collection points are just across the pick-up/drop-off access road, in the public car park. This is a really short walk, so you won't need a shuttle, even with a luggage trolley.
  • If you opt for car hire in Miri, an important factor to account for is the monsoon season. The unrelenting and often torrential rain requires the utmost caution while driving. The car's wipers sometimes won't provide enough clear vision, and aquaplaning is common on tarred roads. Also, watch out for children and animals on the roads. All in all, the successful way to approach driving in Miri is to be mindful and cautious and to take your sightseeing at a leisurely pace.
  • The key to driving in Miri is to relax and drive slowly. As long as you adapt to the constant need to look out for pedestrians, expect the unexpected and drive defensively, you won't have much difficulty. Other drivers are friendly, if not observant of road rules. You also need to watch out for the potholes that appear after the monsoon season. Local road authorities try to fix them, but always remember this when you book Miri car hire.
  • Book your rental car in Miri at least 2 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Miri are around 8% cheaper than other car types, on average

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Miri?

    Choosing the right type of car hire in Miri depends on when you intend to be there. During the monsoon season, wiser choices are a 4x4 or a rugged SUV, especially if you're going sightseeing outside of the city. If you're sticking to the main roads, an MPV will be fine too. Outside of monsoon season, a nifty compact car will do you just as well as in any city if you're alone or with a partner. Choose a sedan or saloon model if you're in a group or with your family. Bigger tour groups can hire larger passenger vans.

  • What's the speed limit in Miri?

    The speed limit within the city limits of Miri is 60 km/h. In the surrounding areas, it's subject to seasonal changes and can vary depending on the time of year. Pay close attention to the yellow rectangular speed limit signs. On federal roads within the surrounding area, the maximum speed allowed is 90 km/h. However, this changes during the Malaysian festive seasons, reducing to 80 km/h. The same applies to the larger interstate roads. The speed limit on expressways is 110 km/h, but keep an eye out when you're driving in mountainous areas, where it can change to 80 or 90 km/h.

  • Where are the best places to park in Miri?

    Parking zones in Miri are divided between municipal and privately owned facilities. Coin-operated meters are the usual type of paid parking on the street. If you're staying for a while, you can purchase a monthly parking permit, if you like. In the paid car parks, you simply drive in and park. An inspector will place a ticket on your window, which you pay at the booth when you leave. You can be fined for not displaying a valid parking ticket on your window in a regulated car park, so be aware of that. As a rule of thumb when looking for on-street parking, avoid any bays with single or double yellow lines.
