Car rental location Penang Airport

Location information for Penang Airport

Penang International Airport serves the Bayan Lepas area of this southwest Malaysian state. The closest city is the state capital of George Town, under 10 miles north of the airport with car rental in Penang Airport. Northbound passengers enjoy spectacular aerial views of the Penang Bridge and Butterworth when leaving or entering Malaysia's third-largest airport. The airport acts as a hub for Firefly and AirAsia, low-cost carriers.


Penang Airport facilities

This medium-sized airport offers direct flights to most major Southeast Asian cities, with more than four million passengers having used the facility in 2010. Departures leave from the terminal's second floor while arrivals enter via the ground floor. Many major operators supply chances to compare car hire at the Arrivals hall, while snack bars and duty-free shops are found in the Departures concourse.


Penang Airport excursions

One of Asia's longest bridges connects the island of Penang with the state's mainland portion, Seberang Perai. Tolls are required for vehicles driving towards the island, but not for those headed for Seberang Perai. Car hire in Penang Airport is ideal for exploring George Town, where footpaths are few, and the island's south and west coasts.


Best time to visit

Penang's wet season begins in August and lasts until November. Thunderstorms are frequent during these four months. January and February are usually Penang's driest months, but they are also the region's busiest months in terms of tourism, especially during the Chinese and Western New Year seasons. Crowds and costs both dip during the March to July shoulder season.


Car rental in Penang Airport

Hazards drivers must watch for in Penang include morning and evening rush hour traffic, reckless motorcyclists and the island's numerous narrow or one-way streets. Car rental costs are most expensive during the busy January and February tourism months, when advance booking is highly advised. Fuel is far cheaper than in Western nations and even neighbouring Thailand.

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).
