For the sake of ease and convenience, we parked our car at KLIA2 during our recent trip to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.
RM 198 for 6 days is definitely more expensive than other options, but less hassle was our motto.(Update Mar 2017: the parking rate is still the same. Do note that rate is based on 24 hours parking).
RM 50 note is accepted for payment above RM 35, which comes useful for long-term parking.
We managed to find a spot at Level CP4, close to entrance. CP4 leads directly to gateway@KLIA2 to enter the shopping areas at Level 2. Not only that, there are also more traffics; safer and gives us peace of mind.
Returning from Kota Kinabalu, our (Malindo Air) flight landed at KLIA. We had to take KLIA Transit to collect our car, just a short 4-minute journey away. No, it’s not a free service like other countries .. Welcome to Malaysia, folks. We paid RM 2 for adult, and RM 1 for child fare, one-way.
These are other options which I’ve also considered:
- Park at Putrajaya Sentral, the parking fee is capped at RM 6/day. Continue with KLIA Transit from Putrajaya & Cyberjaya station: adult RM 9.40 and child RM 4.20 one-way fare
- Park at Long-term carpark (LTCP), at Block A of KLIA. Maximum parking period of four days at RM 144 with additional RM 15 per day. There is also a free shuttle, every 15 minutes, between the carpark and KLIA and KLIA2
- Use GrabCar – currently there is a RM 65 one-way promotion, instead of RM 90, but limited to 4 passengers in a car
- Rent a van with driver at RM 140 one-way (Update Feb 2017: We rented a 10-seater van with Mr Leong 010 2665155 for a group of 9 pax, from Kepong to KLIA2. We paid RM 180 from Kepong to KLIA2, and RM 150 from KLIA2 to Kepong. We paid additional RM 10 per way, for a second pick-up/drop-off in Kepong (5km away). Travel period: late Dec/early Jan travel)
Update Sept 2017:
Since many asked about the (confusing) parking at KLIA2, I’ve took some photos on my recent visit to the airport.
When you drive towards KLIA2, there’ll be signages – left to departure, and right to arrival. I will usually drive towards Arrival, as it’ll lead towards level CP4 of the main terminal.
As mentioned above, CP4 leads directly to gateway@KLIA2 to enter the shopping areas at Level 2. If you park at other floors, use lift at the parking area and go to level CP4.
There are 2 parking entrances – one to Block A, and another one to Block B. Both entrances access to level CP4 of car park.
After you turn right to Arrival, immediately keep left to access parking at Block A. If you miss this entrance (sometimes this entrance is closed too), you may use the outer lane and drive towards Block B’s entrance, located at the other end of Block A.
