  1. Has anyone used Uber X from KLIA airport?
  2. Does Uber block Uber X in the vicinity of KLIA, like they do at MEL?
  3. Are Uber X drivers readily available?
  4. What's a good spot at KLIA (non-budget terminal) to drop the pin for pick-up?
  5. Is discretion required i.e. is there a turf war between Uber drivers and the KLIA airport limo service?
  6. Appreciate any input. Thank you.

Hey there, 

I use Uber all the time from KLIA. The prices are really reasonable so you may want to select Uber Black / Premium for a bit more comfort as some of the Uber X cars are quite small if you have multiple passengers or luggage. 

In terms of pick up zones, the app will default to the KLIA arrivals zone. The doors are numbered in KL like SG so I usually just send the driver a message and say I'm in front of door 3 etc. 

In terms of turf war - it's not an issue at all. Just be prepared to wait around 15 mins or so for the driver to arrive as the traffic is usually a bit chaotic.

Uber X have always been nicer cars in KL than Uber Black funnily enough.... Uber X have been Audi's whilst Black have been Mazda/Toyota's. Regardless our exchange rate is pennies so go the Black and see if you get an Alphard van! With thrown seats 😁

Uber is great in Malaysia, I got a ride from KLIA to Ipoh (3hrs) for A$ 65! Drivers are friendly and reliable.
