Car rental location Alor Setar Airport

Location information for Alor Setar Airport

A good number of the 400,000 or so passengers who used northeast Malaysia's Sultan Abdul Halim Airport in 2010 were Muslims who took advantage of the airport's seasonal direct flights to the sacred city of Medina during the hajj pilgrimage season. This Kepala Batas airport lies less than nine miles from Alor Setar with car rental in Sultan Abdul Halim Airport.


Sultan Abdul Halim Airport facilities

In addition to seasonal direct flights to the Saudi Arabian cities of Jeddah and Medina, this airport offers Firefly flights to Subang and flights to Kuala Lumpur with AirAsia and Malaysia Airlines throughout the year. The training division of the Royal Malaysian Air Force shares the runway of this airport, whose limited amenities include a Hertz branch where customers may compare car hire.


Sultan Abdul Halim Airport excursions

The largest city this northeast Malaysian airport serves is Alor Setar, Kedah's state capital. Few Peninsular Malaysian state capitals are as rich in culture as this city, which is surrounded by scenic paddy plantations. Among Alor Setar's most famous landmarks is northern Malaysia's oldest fort, the 17th century Kota Kuala Kedah, at less than 12 miles from Alor Star with car hire in Sultan Abdul Halim Airport.


Best time to visit

Alor Setar's hottest months may be March and April, but February is the only truly dry month in this city which has a tropical monsoon climate. Downpours are fairly common, even during Alor Setar's brief dry season. December and January are the coolest months, but even during these months Alor Setar's weather remains hot and humid.


Car rental in Sultan Abdul Halim Airport

Like drivers in most other regions of Malaysia, Alor Setar motorists tend to drive without seatbelts, enter roads without stopping and speed through red lights. However, driving here presents few problems for those who take proper precautions. Motorways effortlessly link Alor Setar with Butterworth, less than 58 miles to the south, and the Thai border, less than 28 miles to the north.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is CompareCarHire.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
