I think its best that you utilise the public transport in Malaysia. It will be cheaper than renting a car. thanks.

Al is right, public transport is cheap in Malaysia and very frequent.

However car rental is quite easy. The rental price includes insurance. If you have an international licence you should have no problem. There are many car rentals companies in Malaysia, check the internet. With some you can bargain if you go there personally, e.g at the airport.

Traffic violation . either you pay an on the spot fine or else you are sent a summons some weeks later. I am not sure what happens with rental cars though.

What country are you from?

I hope you're able to see this before you head to the airport.

The price offered by Air Asia is already a low price, lower than conventional airlines. It's just how low, depending on how early you purchase the ticket.
