Top tips for hiring a car in Thailand

  • Thai cities generally have extremely congested traffic but good public transportation, meaning that hiring a car is not recommended for travel in solely urban areas. However, renting a car in Thailand is a great way to enjoy more flexibility and get off the beaten track to explore other areas of the country. Popular self-drive destinations include islands like Phuket (where taxis are very expensive) and the north of the country around Chiang Mai.
  • Toll roads are common in Thailand and usually charge about ฿40-50 ($1.25-1.60) per vehicle. Most are cash only, although the expressways around Bangkok require electronic payment. Be aware of blue-marked lanes, which are for vehicles with an easy-pay pass only. If the toll is not paid, the car rental agency will typically deduct the cost plus an administration fee from your credit card.
  • Children under 12 may not sit in the front seat of a vehicle in Thailand and should also be restrained in an age-appropriate seat. These can be rented from most agencies for an additional fee, but to get the correct size and to guarantee availability, it is strongly recommended to book in advance. An international agency like Avis charges in the neighborhood of ฿200 ($6.40) a day for a child booster seat.
  • Car agencies typically do not allow drivers to rent a car in Thailand and drive into neighboring countries like Cambodia or Malaysia. Many, such as Hertz and Avis, also prohibit their vehicles from being taken on car ferries to islands belonging to Thailand. If planning to make any border or sea crossings, whether international or domestic, always check with the rental agency in advance.
