  7. Fahizam

    Hi, Can I rent and drive outside Klang valley? Let say from kl to penang?

    • SOCAR Admin

      Hi Fahizam, apologies for not getting back to you sooner. For a quicker response, do like and follow us on our Facebook Page: You can drive wherever your heart pleases, as long as it is within Peninsula Malaysia. This is due to insurance reasons, If you'd like to drive from KL to Penang, you will need to return the car back to where you've picked it up from in KL as we do not have one-way implemented on our app yet. Stay tuned to our social channels for more updates on that and Promos! Thank you so much for your interest in SOCAR! Stay awesome! Love, The SOCAR Team
