Until a few years ago, i used to rent car for msia trip.

 

Some car rentals (pte owner or those 'company' but operate from HDB flat one) will ask u to pay extra $20 per day, for 'extra insurance' if u declare want to go msia.

 

I never really bothered to check, just pay and go. But got once i asked, but the guy said 'its done online' so cannot show me. 

 

Anyone can shed light on this? Am just curious whether its really true got extra insurance coverage, or the rental just wanna get extra money

i thought you need an extra phone charger when you rent a car to go msia.

 

Anyway the extra $20-$30 is standard for the insurance coverage.

Most of these rental cars do not have insurance coverage for West Malaysia

Unlike private cars

Like or don't like also have to pay. Their T&C.

 

It's for insurance.

 

Just when you go holiday and buy travel insurance.

I thought that the prepayment and surcharge for renting a car has long been out of stock.  Well or it because I use Rental24H and there do not take money for their services.  I think you are paying.  And this is not what.

By default, you need to have a copy of your insurance in your car. So "unable to show you because it is done online" is not an acceptable answer. The last thing you want to be caught up with, is pay for Malaysia coverage and get checked in Msia without insurance.

 

But the extra charge is valid.
