Beside the exterior, you should also spend time documenting all damage to the inside of the car and informing the car rental company before starting your trip

If you've bought Essential excess cover on the website or you have a different insurance policy, you should still make some time to inspect the car for pre existing damage. We advise taking photos on your phone of each section of the vehicle. If there is damage on the vehicle that isn't mentioned in your rental contract you should report this to the car rental provider

Picking up your Malaysia Car rental using a debit card and other payment options.

One thing to think about when deciding if you want to use a debit card at the collection desk, car hire companies often hold an excess on the lead drivers credit card, the credit card hold can be a considerable amount of money and if you choose to pay with a debit card this might be debited from your bank and not refunded until weeks after you've returned the car.

Frequently, rentals that include the Premium Cover option allow you to use a debit card when you pick up the car with no additional charges. You're able to compare if a debit card is allowed, along with the different car hire excess and insurance options on the extras page of the booking process.

Stress Free Car Rental accepts a large number of currencies including Euros (EUR), British Pounds (GBP), US Dollars (USD) and Australian Dollars (AUD).

It's worth remembering that quite frequently car rental brands that will allow debit card on collection are not as cheap as car hire companies that accept credit card only.

Lots of the Malaysia car rental partners we include accept a debit card when you collect the rental; often these do have different conditions related with them. Always be sure to check the terms and conditions if you intend to pick up the car using a debit card.

When you opt to include Essential or Basic Cover with your rental, it usually means that you'll be required to present a credit card in the name of the lead driver when you collect the car.

Driving tips for your car hire at Malaysia

Before driving away take some time to get used to the vehicle and its controls. This is very important if you normally drive a manual transmission on the other side of the road.

Sometimes it's intimidating at first to drive in a different country, just relax and you'll soon find yourself acclimatised to the differences. Enjoy your holiday

if you're planning to drive across a border into a different country, be careful to check the T&Cs for additional fees and to let the car hire provider know. If you don't there is the possibility that your insurance will be invalidated if you are involved in an accident or the car is stolen

If you are given a fixed penalty fine when driving in Malaysia the car hire company might take this amount from the credit card you have on file. If this happens you'll be informed by email when this has taken place

it can be a good idea to have some loose change available in the car to pay for toll roads. Many toll roads will accept cards but it's better to have cash as a backup

If you'd like to drop off the vehicle in a alternative place to the one you collected it from, all extra one way charges are included in the pricing listed on the website.

When driving in a different country lots of countries have very strict restrictions regarding drinking alcohol when driving. To be safe, we strongly recommend not to consume any alcoholic drinks at all when driving your vehicle

When driving on the opposite side than you're used to be extra careful of roundabouts.
