But getting around the beautiful island is not as easy as you think. There are no LRT’s (trains) to take you around town, and buses are not as frequent as you’d like. Taking a taxi is convenient, but having to depend on a taxi can be costly if you plan on going to a few places. You might as well spend some of that money by renting a car, that way you save money and get to drive yourself around at your own convenience.

Renting a car in Langkawi is simple. You can choose to rent a car for a day, a week or even a month. Choosing the right company might be a little confusing as there are so many out there, and going through each website to determine the best can be a hassle. To make things a little easier for you, we searched for the top five places that you should consider to rent a car in Langkawi.
