GrabCar rent by the hour

Grab is expanding its service offerings beyond conventional ride-hailing with a new rent-by-the-hour service, now at the heart of the city — the KLCC area. The company first ran a pilot in Kota Kinabalu in October last year where you can rent a six-seater vehicle with a driver, for up to 12 hours.

The new service is available in the KLCC area from 9AM to 8PM daily. You’ll be able to book a Toyota Vellfire and a driver, with the flexibility of travelling within and outside of the Klang Valley. Each vehicle can accommodate up to six passengers.

There’s no advance booking required and fares include fuel (excluding toll and parking). You have a choice of a wide range of hourly packages to suit your needs. The great thing is you know your exact fare even before you book your ride, there’s no surprises.

You can rent the car and driver for whatever reason – that’s up to you. You can visit attraction spots, go on a food tour with your family and friends, or even run errands.

Here’s a breakdown of package prices:

Package Prices, inclusive of
fuel and driver charges (RM)
City 4 Hours 6 Hours 8 Hours Overtime charges per minute
KLCC 480 680 880 3/minute


For four hours at a rate of MYR480, the cost works out to MYR120 per hour. For the maximum 8-hour package, the rate is MYR880 translating to MYR110 per hour. That’s super competitive considering it comes with a driver. In Kota Kinabalu, Grab offers up to 12-hour bookings from as low as MYR54.20 per hour.

Note that there is an overtime charge of MYR3 per minute. There’s also a surcharge of MYR50 if you drop off to Genting Highlands and KLIA/KLIA2. Drop-offs within Klang Valley at the end of the trip is free of charge.

In terms of payment methods, cash and cashless methods (including GrabPay) are accepted.

The rent option can be accessed via the main Grab app interface: Car > Rent tab
