Frequently asked questions

Can I rent a car from Kota Kinabalu Intl. Airport (BKI)?
Europcar is a quick commute from the terminal and the only car rental outlet. Lock in your ride as soon as you can to avoid missing out.
What happens if I need to cancel my Kota Kinabalu car reservation?
We have good news! You should receive a full refund if you let us know a minimum of six hours prior to the scheduled pickup time. Your confirmation contains details about this, and so does our Customer Service Portal. Not all prepaid bookings result in a refund though, so it’s a good idea to go over the car’s cancellation policy.

What do you need to rent a car in Kota Kinabalu?
Any rental company you select will need these two things — your driver’s license and credit card. If you’d like to opt out of the provider’s insurance plan, proof of your own coverage will also likely be needed. Read your policy thoroughly so you know what to bring when it’s time to collect your car.
Can I drive in Kota Kinabalu with my U.S. Driver's license?
In Kota Kinabalu, you won’t be able to rent a car or drive with your U.S. License alone. To legally get behind the wheel here, arrange an International Driving Permit before the start of your trip.
Can I rent a car for a month or longer in Kota Kinabalu?
Whether you’re planning to stick around Kota Kinabalu or explore what’s beyond, it’s easy to reserve a long-term rental with Expedia. Enter your trip dates and pick-up/drop-off locations and we’ll help you find affordable long-term car rental deals.
Where can I find a Kota Kinabalu car rental if I am younger than 25?
You’ll need to investigate the age policy of the Kota Kinabalu rental suppliers you’re considering. If you’re under 25, be mindful that some will charge additional fees. It’s useful to know this before arriving at the desk so you can plan your budget accordingly. Every rental car company has its own rules for young drivers, so do your research.
