Thailand Car Rental

Top ways to enter Thailand

  • Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport: Bangkok’s main airport is among the 20 busiest in the world. The word “suvarnabhumi” means Land of Gold in Sanskrit. 
  • Phuket International Airport: Located in the country’s south, Phuket Airport serves flights to and from many destinations in both Asia and Europe.
  • Bangkok Don Mueang Airport: Bangkok’s second airport is served by more than 10 different airlines.

Top cities and places to visit

  • Bangkok: Thailand’s exciting capital city is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Asia, but still retains its unique character.
  • Phuket: Perhaps the most famous Thailand’s beach destination.
  • The rest of the South: Even beyond Phuket there’s plenty of excitement in Thailand’s south, be it in other tourist destinations like Krabi and Pattaya or in the jungle tours.
  • Chiang Mai: The main city of Thailand’s north is a religious center and a beautiful, serene place. 
  • Isaan: Undiscovered by most travelers, this northeast region is full of ancient sites, hospitable locals, and interesting influences from its next door neighbors, Cambodia and Laos.

Most popular rental car

Most popular types of rental car

The most popular rental car type in Thailand is a fullsize, although economy and compact are also often picked, especially by travelers who tend to stay in the cities.

Top driving routes

  1. Phuket - Krabi (159 km / 99 mi) The crescent-like route between the two famous resort towns has many tempting attractions on the way, such as the Ao Phang-nga National Park and the Than Bok Khorani National Park.
  2. Bangkok - Udon Thani (570 km / 354 mi) The city of Udon Thani, reached in about eight hours by car from Bangkok, has many historic and natural landmarks, and is just a short ride away from neighboring Laos and its capital, Vientiane.
  3. Bangkok - Phuket (844 km / 524 mi) It is a good idea to break up this route into two or three days, both because of its length and because of many picturesque nature areas near Gulf of Thailand that you’ll find on the way.
