Hi the cheapest transport is by the Genting express bus, only cost around 10rm. However it might be full easily during peak season and you have to wait for the other timeslot. So reserving the ticket in advance will be good to avoid waiting. Car rental in Malaysia is quite cheap, might be around 80-100RM for a normal sedan car. Chauffer driver Im presuming you mean Taxi, it will cost around 200+RM for a taxi to drive you all the way up. Hope this help ;)

there is no such thing as RM 80 for a car in KL anymore. a car rental starts at RM 150 per day not including petrols (starts at RM 1.85 per litre for ron 95)

Forget about renting a car, driving up genting highlands with a small car is not easy due to the slopes. and if you drop the car back off at another station instead of the airport, you still have to pay additional RM 100 + for returning it at the city.

take a taxi from the airport to genting highlands for RM 280 one way or take the Skyvans:

then take the bus from genting highlands to KL or use the Skyvan or a cab.

Go to the genting website and look up the bus times.

sorry i mean a small sedan car* That was about 2 years ago thou, didnt know they raise the price so fast ;((

Hi Pradeep72 yes its 85RM per day, but judging from what Global said, I guess the price has risen. Petrol in Malaysia is very cheap, Singaporean often go over the border to get a full tank with their car and go back home, thats how cheap their petrol is. ;)

in KL, generally with a reputable company with insurance and legal paper; a good car - min RM 150 per day, was about RM 120 2 years ago. RM 85 might (have) get(gotton) you a small myVi in langkawi...

Petrol is not that cheap anymore, its RM 1.85 for RON 95 subsidized, But singaporean/foreign registered cars are not allowed to buy RON 95 fixed petrol price anymore, instead they have to settle for the RON 97 petrol which is based on float market price; which def will increase in the near future.

remember to Add about RM 17 for toll charges when driving from KLIA to genting highlands for the NSE, DUKE and karak.

hi Global, Langkawi offer a small proton for just 60RM the lowest. I just went there recently and saw people driving hatch back for 50RM(bargain etc). Singaporean normally go to JB to pump Shell Petrol, V power is cheaper there compare to Singapore. ^_^!
