Tips for hiring a car in Johor Bahru

Browse helpful tips for hiring a car in Johor Bahru including age restrictions, car type suggestions and more. Tips were last updated on 1 March 2024.
  • By opting for car hire in Johor Bahru, you can enjoy several advantages over alternative transport options. Unlike relying solely on public transportation, having a car provides added flexibility and convenience to explore the area at your own pace. With your own wheels, you can easily visit attractions such as Legoland Malaysia, located approximately 20 kilometres away, or venture further to the beautiful Desaru Coast. Make the most of your trip by considering Johor Bahru car hire for a hassle-free and personalised experience.
  • When it comes to airport car hire in Johor Bahru, you'll find the car hire offices conveniently located within the terminal building of Senai International Airport (JHB). After landing, head towards the arrivals hall, and you'll spot the car hire desks right there. Similarly, at Changi Airport (SIN), in Singapore, which serves as an alternate option for Johor Bahru, the car hire offices can be found in the arrival halls of Terminals 1, 2 and 3. Follow the signs upon arrival to reach the designated car hire areas.
  • While driving in Johor Bahru, be mindful of the local traffic conditions and road etiquette. Be aware of pedestrians crossing the roads outside designated crossings, especially in busy areas. Additionally, be cautious at roundabouts, where yielding to entering vehicles is expected. Keep an eye out for motorcycles and bicycles manoeuvring through traffic. Consider including GPS navigation in your booking to travel around, as road signs in and around the city aren't always clear.
  • When driving in Johor Bahru, be prepared for peak traffic during rush hours. Rush hour typically occurs between 7:30 and 9:00 and between 17:30 and 19:00. During these times, expect congestion on major roads such as Jalan Tebrau, Jalan Skudai and Jalan Dato' Onn. If you plan to visit nearby mountainous areas like Gunung Pulai, be cautious of steep and winding roads. While Johor Bahru generally experiences a tropical climate, unpredictable heavy rain showers can make driving challenging, so take precautions during the rainy season.
