If you land at Langkawi International Airport (LGK) and need to rent a car, you have four companies to choose from: Europcar, Kasina, Keddy and Mayflower.
Langkawi, an island off the northwest coast of Malaysia, is a nature lover’s dream. Due to its biodiverse rainforest, the main island is a protected UNESCO World Geopark, while more than 100 smaller islands make up the archipelago. A drive is a great way to explore the undiscovered areas of this pristine jungle island. Always remember before renting a car that Malaysians drive on the left side of the road due to the legacy of British colonial rule.
To pick the best car rental companies in LGK, we researched price, fleet availability and customer feedback and ranked the best based on three categories: most affordable, best for families and best for luxury. Here’s what we found.
Most affordable: the Opel
Europcar is the best place to rent a car cheaply at Langkawi International Airport. Unfortunately, there are no Europcar kiosks at the airport, so you’ll have to find a representative waiting for you at the arrival area. Car renters love Europcar’s pick-up and drop-off times, the courtesy and efficiency of the staff, and the overall value of the vehicle.
Perfect for families: kasina
With a fleet of affordable cars, SUVs, and minivans, Kasina is the clear choice for families at Langkawi International Airport, and up to two child seats are included in Kasina’s base price. And, unlike some of LGK’s other car rental companies, Kasina’s kiosks are located in the main arrivals area and are easy to find, so you don’t have to bring your kids with you to a representative.
Best luxury option: the Mayflower
Luxury car rental options are limited on the remote island of Langkawi, but those landing in LGK in search of a high-end vehicle should head to Mayflower.With a fleet of Renault Fluence, Nissan Sylphy and Teana limousines, Mayflower has the vehicles you need to travel the beautiful shores of Langkawi in style. Like many of the car rental companies at Langkawi Airport, Mayflower doesn’t have an on-site kiosk, but there will be a representative waiting at the arrival area for your reservation.
