We offer you multiple optional insurances. You can choose from the following:
The most important insurance is also liability. All offers on Driveboo contain these automatically. The individual liability insurances of the different providers may, however, differ with regard to the sum insured in the event of damage. In the rental terms and conditions you can read what amount is covered. We recommend at least one million euros.
You are optimally secured with a fully comprehensive insurance without excess . Even if you cause damage such as scratches to the rental car, you do not have to pay an additional fee. In the event of damage, the excess is first deducted from the deposit. In the case of fully comprehensive insurance without excess, the broker of your vehicle will refund the amount afterwards. All you have to do is submit the necessary documents within the deadline. You can find all the information you need in your rental contract.
When you pick up your rental car at the car rental company, present zto pay your credit card. The deposit defined in the rental agreement is debited from this account at the same time. At the end of the rental period, the car rental company will refund the full amount if the rental car is not damaged. A payment of the deposit in cash is only possible in exceptional cases and with a few landlords. Therefore, you should always carry a credit card with you when travelling abroad.
For some vehicles, car rental offers one-way rental as an option. It gives you maximum flexibility: you pick up the rental car at station A of the car rental company and return it to station B. Our price comparison shows you whether the landlord charges a fee for one-way rental or not. For example, you can use this option to travel from Kuala Lumpur to the Gulf coast from Thailand or to another city in Malaysia. If you want to cross a border, you have to register it with your car rental company. However, not all providers allow international journeys.
If you want to alternate with your travel companion at the wheel of the car, you have to register the Person as an additional driver. You will need to show your driver's license and passport to the car rental company in Kuala Lumpur. Drivers and additional drivers are then included in all insurance policies. Only by registering is the additional driver secured.
No building in Kuala Lumpur symbolizes modernity as much as the iconic Petronas Towers. The two towers of the famous skyscraper are more than 450 meters high. They are characterised by their glass front and the tower tops, which are modelled on minarets. At an altitude of 172 metres, both Petronas Towers are connected by the glass skybridge, which offers visitors a wonderful view of the city centre. Rent a car to visit this landmark of the city and take the elevator up to the bridge.
An insight into the traditional and spiritual side of Malaysia is offered by the Buddhist Thean Hou Temple, which towers above the city on Robinson Hill. The spacious temple complex welcomes you with its decoratively curved roofs and the typically red columns. Besides richly decorated prayer and multipurpose rooms you will find a souvenir shop and an idyllic garden with a turtle pond.
