Kota Kinabalu Airport Car Rental Recommendations


 
IHateTaxis.com has a mixed recommendation on a Kota Kinabalu Airport car rental

Renting a car might give you freedom, but with traffic conditions and unmarked streets hiring a taxi or private car and driver from your hotel for seeing the sights out of town might be a better option. Alternatively look for renting a motorcycle for a day or more if you really want to have fun. Your hotel can probably direct you to a rental agency or they may even have something on-site at a competitive rate. Motorcycle rentals run about MYR 20 per day.
