Update:
-Finally get the car from Hawk at ~S$25/day with CDW and Theft protection via Easyrentcars.
-Pick up and return was smooth. Only the car is a bit old, the remote key has low/no battery (Hawks said just need to manually lock the car) and fuel sensor is not sensitive.

What is the vehicle you are getting?
I am getting a vehicle in Singapore for $220 over the 4- day weekend, including the charge for driving in Malaysia. This works out to be double the rate you are getting from Hawk. Of course, there are associated costs and logistics of getting over the straits which I reckon is worth my paying more this time.

I booked a Bezza but they gave me a Saga - same price while booking.
The rate was after additional USD10 coupon deduction with Easyrentcars I found thru the web. I compared against Hawk official and its partner:Rentcars, Carflexi and Easyrentcar (best rate at the time of booking).

Anyone has any recommendations for SUV car rental in JB? I have 6 pax and are intending to do a road trip to Malacca and back. I looked at Europcar and they are charging $190 for 2 days rental- a little expensive. Thanks in advance!

All the big players in the JB car rental market are already named in this thread. Now it's a matter of your going to their portals with your requirements to obtain your quotations for making comparison. There are other operators not having an online presence, especially those also in the 2nd-hand or private hire market, so if you come across them, this forum would be happen to know.

So far Europcar like the best option cuz website very clear but is expensive. $190 for day 1 morning collection at 10am, return on day 2 10pm. Additional surcharge for return after 5.30pm but never state how much. Msg them no reply. Citibank 10% disc.

Hawk- website not clear, dunno paying in USD or MYR. Price comparable to Europcar

Avis- no SUVs on my intended travel dates

Hertz/Sime Darby- no SUVs on my intended travel dates

Wahdah- most expensive among all

Tried other websites like easy book but they up price like crazy.

Looking for reliable ones though.

Yes, but price is for Nissan X-trail or equivalent. Proton Alza/Exora is only slightly cheaper, like about SGD160-170 (Wahdah).

Yes Europcar is still the cheapest option so far. Will book by this weekend if I cannot find a cheaper alternative. Thanks!
