KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Johor Bahru

  • Losing your way in an unfamiliar area, especially when traveling overseas, can be extremely stressful. Get yourself a GPS navigator to guide you so you don’t get stranded. Johor Bahru's major car rental agencies provide GPS services as an optional extra at the time of pick-up. Because GPS works without an internet connection, it is particularly useful on road trips to remote locations like Kota Tinggi Cascade waterfalls and Kukup Island.
  • Booster seats must be installed in all cheap car rentals in Johor Bahru for passengers traveling with young kids. These seats are for children between ages 6 and 7 weighing 33 lbs to 79 lbs. If you intend to ride with your infants under the age of one who weighs less than 20 lbs, you need to install infant car seats facing backward. These seats support the baby's back, neck, and spine. Additionally, babies, toddlers, and preschoolers (ages 1 to 5) who weigh between 20 lbs to 42 lbs must be restrained in reversible seats mounted on the car's back seat.
  • Drivers of Johor Bahru car rentals must be 23 years or older with at least one year of experience in driving. If you are between 23 and 25, rental providers consider you to be a young driver, so they’ll charge an additional fee for your rental. Some car rental providers may also limit the type of vehicle that a young driver can rent, and you may need to purchase comprehensive insurance as part of your rental car agreement.
  • A rental car is the most comfortable and efficient way to travel around Johor Bahru as well as the rest of the Malaysian peninsula. Ditch the crowded public transports and pricey cab fares and jump into your very own rental car, freely exploring what the city has to offer — including the popular Legoland and the Istana Besar palace on the JB waterfront. Go for a day trip to Singapore, which is just across the Johor Causeway, about 30 minutes from the city center.
  • All the big car rental companies, including Avis, Hertz, and Europcar, can be found at Senai International Airport (JHB), which is located about 20 miles northwest of Johor Bahru’s city center. The rental car desks are situated in the Arrivals Hall of the main terminal. Make sure you request a GPS that is set to the English language to give you some guidance, as you could end up getting lost in the city.
  • The first thing you need to know about driving in Johor Bahru is that traffic runs on the left-hand side of the road, while the steering wheel is on the right side of the vehicle. Drivers in Johor Bahru may be a little reckless at times, so always yield to them when you see them. Don’t leave your running car unattended, as car theft is not unusual here. The area near the Singaporean border is usually safer to drive and park.
  • The city experiences a bit of traffic during rush hour, which usually starts at 6 a.m. and goes until 9 a.m., and then again between 4 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. There are lots of Singaporeans traveling to Johor Bahru through the Johor Causeway, especially during the weekend, so if you’re heading to or from Singapore, try to make the crossing outside those time frames.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Johor Bahru for $39 or less
  • Book your rental car in Johor Bahru at least 3 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Off-airport rental car locations in Johor Bahru are around 18% more expensive than airport locations on average
  • Economy rental cars in Johor Bahru are around 37% cheaper than other car types, on average
