The same Wahdah guy (hasan) dropped it off at Caltex and waited for me to arrive. We went through the handover process and marked out the dings (if any) / mark petrol level on the handover form.

Drop off is done by leaving the car at the same spot. There is a secure box on the caltex wall where you can drop the car key in.

Deposit is paid through a Paypal invoice (where you can select cash payment / credit card payment). The RM300 deposit is typically refunded to you via the same channel of payment 2-3 weeks post car return. Have rented twice, no problems at all. Heading up again next week.

I shall try Wahdah the next time. Previously I have used Hertz (Sime Darby, Kotaraya) and also Avis (Kotaraya II Terminal). Both were fine, just pricey.

I book from economycarrental, they assigned me to "Hawk rent a car", cost me 140rm/24hrs for Toyota Altis.

Overall car condition and service is good. They don't scrutinize small scratches and stuff when I return.

Their office located at Puteri Pacific hotel, just 5mins walk from city square.

I didn't get Altis as they ran out of it, so they gave me free upgrade to camry 2.0, i think the car is abt 6yrs old.

i shortlisted this, since they have a physically office in the hotel and hawk seems pretty established too. have an outlet in sgp.

how about your deposit? they return to you immed after you return the car?

do you know what cars they have? i just need for 2 pax, over the weekend.

Are there any other companies offering car rental in the city but charging less per day?

How much should I budget for a car for a car for three days - Saturday-Monday? I need car just for two people so need, small, budget car.

I have tried Sime darby rent a car (Which is Hertz actually), small car costs me myr121 for a day. Myr300 deposit paid thru credit card, and I returned the car after office hour so i just dropped key to the designated box. Quite convenient.

I noticed that besides hertz is hawks rent a car, which is recommeded by some forumers... So i guess this tower (Menara ansar) is a good place to rent.

I called in to book. It's Hyundai I10. Don't think can be booked online. I tried downloaded their Hertz my app but it is useless.

Wow, missed this out.

Yes, they will typically email you with the contact number of driver.

They have been extremely patient for me when i was caught up in the jams on Causeway. Kudos to them.

So far, strongly recommended for Wahdah. Believe there's a promotion now for the Persona car rental.
