Book A Malaysia Taxi (Long Distance)

One of the easiest and best ways to have a fabulous vacation in Malaysia is to hire a long distance taxi to take you between cities in Malaysia. This is an affordable way to make it so much easier to get from hotel A in city A to hotel B in city B or from the airport to your first hotel or return.

This means no lugging your luggage around in the heat to bus or train stations while feeling stressed and not knowing what you are doing. You can be picked up in your hotel lobby and dropped off at your next one. Or when you arrive at Kuala Lumpur Airport you can head straight to the city of your choice. So easy!

The part that isn’t easy is working out how to arrange this when you’re not a local. It can be tricky to find a taxi willing to take you to another city once you are in country, and it’s hard to know who to trust online.

I know. As an Australian mum of three who can’t get enough of Malaysia and wants to see as much as possible every trip, I love taking taxis between places in Malaysia. We can fit more into our itinerary, and we arrive at our destinations refreshed instead of tired and sweaty.

However, I haven’t always been able to find taxis to book or I’ve had to do it online via an instagram page or a random website hoping I’m not booking a serial killer, that they’ll actually show up, and it’ll cost the amount I expect.

That’s why Dive Into Malaysia has partnered with local taxis to help you get around Malaysia quickly and easily – and for a great price.

All you need to do is fill in the form below. For popular routes, it’ll tell you the price and you can book straight away. For other routes, we’ll get back to you within two business days with a confirmed taxi ride and a set price and you can decide then whether to book it or not.

You’ll be picked up at the point you specify at the time you specify and dropped off at the point you specify with no nasty surprises. Could it be easier than this?!

You simply fill in the form.

Once you know the price, you need to pay a RM100 deposit to confirm using a credit/debit card and then pay the rest in cash when you arrive at your destination directly to the driver. We’ll connect you with a local company who you can easily deal with if you need to make any changes. You can confirm your exact address for pick-up and drop-off later as well. Ask any questions in the comments or contact us here.

Note that if you need to cancel, you don’t get your deposit back. You can, however, use the deposit towards a different taxi trip.

If you need a taxi for a route which you can’t book immediately below, expect your confirmation/quote within two business days. If you book and pay on this page then you’ll receive your confirmation within 10 minutes.

Note that this service isn’t for taxi services within a city. This is only for taxis between cities and towns in Peninsula Malaysia. Unfortunately, we can’t currently book taxis for you in Borneo or Singapore. It’s only for point-to-point transfers as well and not day tours.

If you need a car seat, it’s possible to get a booster seat for an extra RM25, but it is better to bring your car seats from home. There is more information about the booster seat below. Please note in the comments in the form if you want a booster seat supplied.

There are three different taxi sizes you can book depending on your amount of passengers and luggage. You can read all about them and see example photos below the form. The bigger the taxi, the more it costs.
