Car rental insurance in Johor Bahru

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Some Johor Bahru 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 Johor Bahru.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car rental 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 Johor Bahru car rental.

Top tips for renting a car in Johor Bahru

  • 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.
