We at Suza Holidays Sdn Bhd, a local company from the Land Below the Wind, offer affordable and reasonable car rental services in Sabah, Kota Kinabalu.


Car Rental in Kota Kinabalu Sabah: New & Neat

We strongly emphasise on providing safe and comfortable cars that can be rented with confidence by our customers. Only cars aged 5 years and above are available for rental. For example, if you rent a car in 2020, we will provide cars from the years 2015 to 2020. Most of our rental cars are aged over 5 years. Once they reach this age, we have a policy to sell them and no longer offer them for rental.

Some of our customers have even said, "Wow! Your rental cars still smell like new! It's so delightful... truly satisfying! Driving a new car is indeed enjoyable, and it saves on fuel too!” 

Before and after each rental, the cars are cleaned and sanitised to ensure they are safe and comfortable for driving. Especially after the Covid-19 pandemic that affected our country, we must be extremely cautious and emphasise cleanliness in our rental cars.

We provide FREE car rental delivery to Kota Kinabalu International Airport (KKIA) and hotels around the city. The distance from our office to Kota Kinabalu International Airport (KKIA), also known as KKIA, takes only 9 minutes. 

Before and after each rental, the cars are cleaned and sanitised to ensure they are safe and comfortable for driving. Especially after the Covid-19 pandemic that affected our country, we must be extremely cautious and emphasise cleanliness in our rental cars.

Usually, after customers make reservations via WhatsApp or our website, Suza Holidays staff will request flight information on the reserved date. One day before the flight, we will contact the customer to ensure a smooth and on-time flight. This is because we will be waiting for the customer at Kota Kinabalu International Airport according to the date and time stated in the flight ticket, to facilitate the handover of the rented car. So, customers do not need to 'wait' for the promised rental car; let us wait for the customers. Usually, the reserved rental cars will be parked at Gate 4, right at the exit gate of Kota Kinabalu International Airport, so customers do not need to walk far.

Travel Tips in Sabah

1. If you're planning to travel on your own, without a tour guide, you can rent various types of vehicles right from Kota Kinabalu airport. Seriously, it's more COST-EFFECTIVE and CHEAPER to use self-drive car rental services compared to taking GRAB or taxis. 

Some travellers even arrive in Kundasang and only then decide to rent a car! So, from KK to Kundasang, they use taxis or GRAB! Isn't that doing things twice? It's better to rent a vehicle directly from Kota Kinabalu airport, right?

2. If you're planning to use a Travel Agency's services, make sure the agent is a registered company with the Ministry of Tourism & MATTA. If any issues arise during the trip, a registered and experienced company will know and make genuine efforts to resolve your problems.

For example, in case of emergencies, the Tour Guide leading your trip will know what to do in the quickest and most professional manner!

3. Typically, how many days are needed for a vacation in Kundasang & Kota Kinabalu? My suggestion is a minimum of 4 days 3 nights or 5 days 4 nights would be the most suitable duration to cover all the 'HOT' spots!
