Car rental in Sandankan

We wish to hire a car for 4 persons for 5 days. My problem is we dont arrive at the airport until 9pm. Can we hire a car that night or will we have to wait till the next morning?

Can someone recommend a car rental company please.

It's now 7 pm as i post this reply literally from the Sandakan Airport.

There are 3 car rental counters here. One of them closes at 9 pm mon to sun and 5 pm on public holidays. I asked the staff there re your case and they said if there is a confirmed booking they can wait for you and your flight before closing. Their website is www.bunibonsandakan.com and phone contact is +60165889200.

The other one is Borneo Express - www.borneocar.com and borneoexpresscar@yahoo.com and +60168860789. The staff there also told me they would wait for you.

The third one is none other than Hertz. But their counter was already closed even at 7 pm and a sign says they close at 6 pm mon to fri. For sat n sun its open based on confirmed bookings.

Is it possible to rent a car at Sandakan airport and drop it off at KK airport?

Would it be advisable to book online or rent it there as u might get better rate due to the competitive condtion.

Roughly how much would it costs for a 7 seaters car?

Yes, with Hertz, We have one booked to do this in June - not sure if this will be possible now due to the situation.

If you go for Hertz, they really helpfull. I went to Sandakan 23/04/13, managed to get 50% discount car rent. With their name "Hertz" definate is realiable.. Perhaps, you can call "Roslen 017-893 2041".
