Fast check in and out. Decent car provided. But Eurocar does not have a permanent counter at airport. Timing for pick up and drop off are restricted to certain timings of the day and not 24 hours.

Check your car windshield wipers, they could be very crucial especially when going downhill...on a narrow winding road...during heavy rain. And the roads around Ranau are very winding.

Downtown of KK is small and most of place can be reach by Grab. But Mount Kinabalu is within 1.5 hours drive and car rental is a must.
