Price of Private Chauffeur Tour in Malaysia
What Is The Price of Private Chauffeur Tour in Malaysia?
For group holidays, show and exhibition, business visiting, family events, corporate events among other occasions, it becomes easier when you hire private chauffeur services. In Malaysia, these services are available and their charges are determined by the kind ride you need.
Type of vehicle
First and foremost, you need to pick the type of vehicle you need and this is determined by the number of people traveling. Malaysian private chauffer models are categorized depending on the number of passengers the car can accommodate.
Therefore, popular models include; 16 seater, 10 seater, 7 seater, and 4 seater. A 4 seater vehicle is meant for a small group of people, with a maximum of 3. Additionally, this vehicle is ideal for short distance tours, mostly one or two days.
In the 7 seater category, there are two models in Malaysia and they include common 7 seater and 7 seater premium. Models in the common 7 seater category include vehicles like Proton Exora, Perodua Alza, Toyota Rush, Honda BRV and Proton Ertiga.

Vehicle models classified under the premium 7 seater category include Toyota Alphard and Toyota Velfire. These two are the most popular vehicle models in this category. The difference between 7 seater premium and the common 7 seater is that 7 seater premium vehicles are more comfortable and they have the ability to travel longer distances as opposed to their counterparts. Therefore, if you need a vehicle that can travel for more than two days and one that can carry 4 to 5 passengers, the 7 seater premium is the ideal chauffer category to go for.

Finally, the 16 seater and 10 seater vans are meant for large groups of people who are traveling together. The 10 seater category of vans can comfortably accommodate more than 6 people. However, when your group exceeds 10 people, the perfect vehicle for you is the 16 seater. You can find these two models in Joylong, CAM, Toyota Hiace, and Co-Star among others.

Once you pick the right model to travel in, you should then consider the itinerary planning.
Malaysian private chauffer tours are categorized into either 1-day tour or multi-day tour. When traveling within Peninsula Malaysia from the capital city of Kuala Lumpur to areas like greater Kuala Lumpur, Ipoh or Malacca, such tours can fit in the 1-day tour category. However, when traveling across states, such tours may take more than a day and a multi-day private tour is the best fit.
Once you have chosen your itinerary, you can then focus on price. In Malaysia, price for chauffer services are typically charged for 8-hours a day only. If your tour exceeds 8 hours, it is wise to inquire about the overcharges to avoid nasty surprises.
