KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Penang

  • Car rentals in Penang give travelers more flexibility when connecting to various places within and outside the city. The benefit of Penang car rentals over the city's public transportation system is that you have the liberty to decide on the hours you want to travel and convenient route(s) to get you to your destination. With public transportation, which has fixed departure times and routes, this is not practical. You may easily travel to City Stadium, where you can enjoy watching football games, with your rental car.
  • Rent a vehicle from one of the Penang car rentals companies at the airport, such as Thrifty, Enterprise, Avis, Hertz, and Budget, and enjoy self-driving from Penang International Airport (PEN). The international arrivals hall on the ground floor of PEN is where you can rent a car. In comparison to other rental locations in the city, picking up your car at this airport location gives you access to a greater variety of car models and types. In comparison to most other areas in the city, the airport location is also simpler for drivers who are new to Penang to access.
  • There are a few things to keep in mind when using car rentals in Penang. Children under the height of 4'4" who are riding in the car with you must always be secured in a booster seat, child car seat, or another suitable restraint system. Any of the Penang car rental agencies will provide the necessary restraint device upon request for a small daily fee. Inside Penang's central business district, keep in mind that it is not uncommon for pedestrians and cyclists to cross the street without first checking for oncoming vehicles.
  • Driving a rental car in Penang during the morning and evening rush hours tends to be very challenging. Most of Penang's roadways face major traffic congestion between 6:00 am and 9:00 am, with Magazine Road being the worst-affected road. The same thing happens in the late afternoon, between 3:00 pm and 5:00 pm. If you must drive on Magazine Road during these hours, plan to leave roughly 20 minutes before the scheduled departure time.

Pros:

At the beginning, I am a bit concern of additional charge because my flight will be arriving the airport after the office hour. However, there is no additional charge and they also gave me a free upgrade from manual to automate. The car if good and comfortable. Highly recommended!
