Private Airport Transfer

Hi all,

Looking for a reliable private transfer service that offers meet-and-greet at the airport. We are a group of 8 and will need a commercial van. Not looking for taxis or hotel transfer. Thanks in advance!

Sherlyn,

Have a look at "Borneo Trails" they are a tour operator with a complete range of vehicles up to large 45 person coaches. Tell them what you want and they will arrange it.

e-mail them at operations_ kkia@borneotrails.com

There are of course other tour operators.

Depending how far you are travelling out from KK it may be cheaper to hire 2-3 taxis or a hotel transfer.

Which hotel are you going too, as we can advise you more accurately.

Hi Sherlyn,

For cheap and hassle free option, i do suggest getting Uber/Grab, if you do not mind travelling in separate cars. It cost less than RM10 per car traveling from KKIA-Shangri-La's Tanjung Aru Resort.

Sherlyn K,

As Sabah girl mentioned Uber/Grab is the cheapest option.

I would forget about using Borneo Trails vehicles for this short journey to Tanjung Aru it is only 10 minutes or less to the hotel from the KKIA terminal 1. But you could still consider them for longer day trips. The Tanjung Aru has its own travel shop so you can book days out from there.

James, Jelo & Soon the concierge at Tanjung Aru will guide you, just ask.

Only leaving the terminal there is a Taxi kiosk it is a fixed rate of MR30 per vehicle, four person and luggage per vehicle. Pay at the kiosk and take your ticket give it to the driver waiting in the row of taxis, that is it no messing about, no need to tip.

Obviously if you want three vehicles ask the price of booking at the kiosk if it is more than MR90 then book each car separately.

The transfer using Tanjung Aru vehicles start at MR150 each way to the KKIA .

Tanjung Aru has it's own taxi desk near the front steps the price from here is MR30 each way to KK city waterfront/centre. Again Uber / Grab is the cheaper option.

Enjoy your Tanjung Aru/Sabah time.
