If you are getting from legal car rental, the price should be the same at anytime. If illegal, during peak they will increase especially during school holidays.

not sure of the rate now. When I was there Perdana was about RM. 100 per day. Also depending on your confort level i.e. what you intend to pay, how many people, what type of vehicle (salon car, MPV, SUV, 4wd) all at different cost.

I will ask my contact in langkawi for an up-dated price list and will post here once I get it.

I am going to Langkawi next week and will be bringing my Nuvi to help me move around the island. I have already downloaded the latest mapset and I am sure that the POIs are more than adequate to keep me occupied. But I would really appreciate recommendations from you guys on good eating places. The sheer number of food POIs can sometimes overwhelmed you! :frus: Thanks!
