CompareCarHire.co.uk compares the prices of well-known car hire companies in Malaysia, including the following location: Senai International Airport
Senai International Airport has served the southern Malaysian city of Johor Bahru since 1974, but it has only recently become a significant transportation hub. Johor Bahru lies directly north of Singapore and less than 22 miles from the airport with car rental in Johor Bahru Airport. Direct AirAsia flights to half-a-dozen other Malaysian cities are available here alongside Firefly flights to Subang and Malaysia Airlines flights to Kuala Lumpur.
Although many locals prefer to use Singapore Changi Airport, the airport of its Malaysian neighbour is more convenient for foreign visitors as they do not have to enter customs more than once. The airports newly renovated terminal includes several shops, restaurants and locations to compare car hire. Other amenities include ATMs, currency exchanges, a nursery, a smoking lounge, Muslim prayer rooms and even classic foot reflexology.
Johor Bahru, the Eurasian mainlands southernmost city, has few tourist attractions compared to neighboring Singapore. However, Johor Bahru also lies in the middle of two beautiful beaches. Desaru lies east of the city, while Kukup is a traditional water village to the southwest of Johor Bahru. Many Kukup seafood restaurants are perched over the Strait of Malacca on stilts.
Like its neighbour, Singapore, Johor Bahru experiences few temperature variations throughout the year. Rain, heat and humidity are constant occurrences during most of the year. June to August is Johor Bahrus driest and least humid time, and when most Western tourists visit. Visitors wishing to escape the crowds and still experience pleasant weather should come in May or September. The monsoon season is from November to January.
Car hire in Johor Bahru Airport is highly recommended as the citys sparse bus network is the only public transport. Other than hectic city centre traffic and numerous road tolls, Johor Bahru driving is relatively safe and easy. The city lies at the end of Peninsular Malaysias main North South Expressway and two smaller federal roads. The causeway to Singapore is at its most crowded on Friday and Sunday evenings.
