The 6 Best Car Rental Services in Langkawi

Buying a brand-new car costs a fortune, especially if you’re earning just enough to support yourself and your family, just getting by from day to day.

But thank goodness we can rent a like-new car from car rental companies! This means that, for a certain price, we can borrow a vehicle to drive around and enjoy the beautiful city in our spare time.

So if you live in or are travelling to Langkawi and need a car, we have put together a list of the top car rental services in Langkawi here, which you can use to find the best car and deals.

First, we’ll tackle the average cost of renting a car in Langkawi. This will also allow you to compare our featured shops’ prices at a glance.

The Average Cost of Renting a Car in Langkawi

The average cost of renting a car on the island is RM109 to RM1,300 per day. But it can vary depending on the chosen car model and class (whether it’s a sedan, compact, MPV, or SUV).

Plan ahead and check out the company’s website for promos and discounts. Usually, they give 10% to 15% off if you book early, during off-peak hours, or for the first time.

To help you find good deals, here’s a table showing our listed companies’ car rental rates in Langkawi:

Leading Car Rental Services in Langkawi

Before we chose these companies, we subjected them to a set of criteria regarding their services. We’ll discuss them below. 

This will ensure that you can expect the very best cars and service if you pick one of them. Our score for each company can be seen just below its information table in the next section.

Car ConditionThis is the most important criterion since a client wants to drive with the utmost comfort and safety. Thus, the cars must be relatively new and well-maintained.
Fleet SelectionEach client has different car needs. Some are fine with an ordinary-sized car and some need a bigger space, so the number and choices of cars matter.
Customer ServiceIt should be prompt and helpful because this is what makes car rental businesses work and ensures clients have a fantastic experience throughout.
Booking Process Most companies say their booking process is extremely simple—until one has tried it. To gauge the booking process we interviewed a number of clients and read online reviews.
Rental Perks The more perks the company has, the more convenient for the customer. Perks may be insurance, roadside assistance, unlimited mileage, and so forth.
PriceThis pertains to whether the price charged is low or high relative to other car rental companies. Regardless, what’s important is that they give the customer value for their money.

Five years since having opened, Big Thumb Travel & Tours continues to be a great car rental company, giving other services a run for their money.

Setting them apart from other companies is the fact that they don’t charge hidden fees. What car rental price you see online is the exact price you will pay.

As you can see in the info table above, their sedans cost even less than those of Wahdah’s, starting from a sweet RM109 each day.

In addition, their cars are all clean, new, and excellently maintained. Their oldest car model is no older than four years.

Handy perks they give include car insurance to protect you in case of an accident and 24-hour roadside assistance to get you back on the road again. 

Plus, they give unlimited mileage, meaning you can drive for as far as you want so long as you get the car back to the drop-off site on time. And included in the price is the delivery of the car to the start location.

Speaking of Big Thumb’s pickup and drop-off locations, these are any hotels in Langkawi, the Langkawi Ferry Terminal, the Langkawi International Airport, and the Telaga Harbour Marina.

And as for their cons, they don’t rent SUV vehicles, only sedans, executive sedans, compacts, and MPVs. Also, they don’t offer subscription plants for regular car rental customers.


  • Best fare guarantee
  • Fast booking
  • Cars are in superb condition
  • Provides airport transfer service
  • Unlimited mileage
  • Insured vehicles
  • 24-hour roadside assistance


  • No subscription plans
  • No SUV vehicles

Everything went smoothly

“Rented car with Big Thumb in early Jan 2019. Everything went smoothly, they got in touch a couple days ahead of pickup to let me know exactly what to do when we arrive.

EZ Rent-a-Car is a Langkawi-based small car rental business owned and run by Rosly Ahmad. Even without a fully developed website, customers seem to flock here to borrow cars for a day or longer.

The car selection is fair with small cars, sedans, multi-purpose vehicles, and SUVs. Prices are categorized into off-peak and peak rates; you’ll notice that you’ll spend less during the off-season.

The Toyota Vios may be a good choice if you have a small family and are taking the car around the city for a short-distance spin. If you’re just going with your spouse or friend, we suggest taking the Perodua MYVI sub-compact car.

Their most expensive brand of car is the Mercedez Benz SLK and E250, which offers a more luxurious ride. Perhaps you can pick it if you’re going to a corporate gala or attending a huge event.

With that said, they don’t provide chauffeured car rentals, only self-drive ones. If this is what you need, there are better options out there.

Plus, as you can’t book through the unofficial website, you have to follow these simple steps:

Contact the owner by phone. Mention your chosen vehicle, the date and time of pickup, and the drop-off point.

Then, pay the deposit, and present your photocopy of your driver’s licence or a utility bill. And that’s it. You’re ready to drive!

By the way, you can view the car rental agreement on the website. And since the insurance excess rate isn’t indicated there, you’d have to contact Mr. Ahmad for that too.

Even if this company is small, they’ve garnered ample respect from their clients owing to the wonderful state of the vehicles, their timely and professional service, and their fast booking phone process. 

And not to mention that clients have had a fantastic experience using EZ Rent-a-Car!


  • Affordable rates
  • Decent car models and conditions
  • Offers a value car rental package
  • Gives an early booking discount
  • Takes booking by phone


  • Unsecure website
  • No online booking
  • No chauffeured cars
  • No mention of any insurance online

Headquartered in Kuala Lumpur, Merge Car Rentals is a local company providing self-drive and chauffeured car rental services. It was formed on November 11, 2011.

In time, as the company had grown and received stellar feedback and demand, it expanded to eight additional branches in Langkawi, Kuantan, Negeri Sembilan, Penang, Ipoh, Terengganu, Melaka, and Selangor.

They have a slew of cars, 350 in total, available for rent here: from compacts to four-wheel drives to 44-seater buses. There’s a select range of cars for you to pick from where you live.

If you’re in Langkawi, Kedah, though, they only have one pickup and drop-off site, and that’s the Langkawi International Airport. This is one of their drawbacks.

At any rate, we find it incredibly helpful to be able to pay them daily, weekly, or monthly. They accept major credit cards Visa and Mastercard as well as PayPal.

Not backing down from the competition, Merge makes the booking extremely easy in four steps: enter your preferred date and pickup point, choose a car, supply additional info, and pay the price.

Now, some downsides of this company are they have no SUV vehicles and they have relatively higher car rental rates. Other than that, Merge Car Rentals can be terrific to rent a car from so you can explore more of Langkawi island.


  • Large and excellent fleet of vehicles
  • Offers chauffeured car services
  • Lets you pay per day, week, or month
  • Accepts PayPal payments
  • Seamless booking experience on web or app


  • No SUV vehicles
  • Relatively higher rates
  • Only one pickup site in Langkawi (Langkawi Airport)

Langkawi Go has become one of the most preferred car rental services in Langkawi thanks to their great customer service and new, well-maintained cars.

You can trust this company because they have over a decade of experience and they have earned a lot of positive feedback.

According to some clients we emailed, they found their service extremely prompt and friendly from start to end.

As expected, their booking process won’t take you time much time at all. 

It merely involves texting your preferred car to them via WhatsApp, confirming and paying them, and coming to the pickup location where the mechanic will check the car with you before handing you the keys.

However, their size of fleet pales in comparison with that of others we mentioned here. Among their vehicles are manual or auto Perodua Axia, Toyota Vios, Toyota Avanza, Toyota Innova, Hyundai Starex, Toyota Vellfire, and Nissan Urvan.

But the important thing is these are periodically inspected and maintained to keep you comfortable and safe throughout your ride.

Furthermore, the rates of the vehicles aren’t stated online, so you have to contact the staff in order to know them, which can be a bit of a hassle. Worry not, though, as we have had reports that prices here are also decent.


  • New, well-maintained cars
  • Outstanding customer service
  • Offers chauffeured service
  • Easy booking process
  • Regularly gives promos


  • Small vehicle fleet
  • Car rental rates aren’t stated
