Suria Car Rental offers its car rental services in Johor, Sabah, Pulau Pinang, and Kuala Lumpur.

Unlike most car rental services, they offer a minimum contract of one day. This makes it ideal for those who need the car on a more short-term basis.

For short-term rentals, they charge different cancellation fees which can be a hassle to keep track of. However, their steep prices range from RM 68 to 158 so we recommend being sure before booking anything with them.
