Car Hire Requirements in Thailand

Airports in Thailand

Suvarnabhumi (Bangkok) Airport, one of two airports serving Bangkok, is the busiest airport in Thailand. Other international airports in Thailand with substantial passenger numbers include Don Mueang (the other Bangkok airport), Phuket, Chiang Mai, Hat Yai, and Samui airports.

Thailand Driving Rules & Regulations

In Thailand, you drive on the left and overtake on the right. Keep your driving licence, proof of insurance, and vehicle documentation with you in the car. Seat belts must be worn at all times. Speed limits range from 50 – 60 km/h in suburban streets and 90 – 120 km/h on highways, but the high volume of traffic in urban areas means that your speed will be determined by the general flow of traffic.You'll find further information on Thailand's rules of the road here.

Such a low rate for a great car. Our experience with Nova in Thailand was all good from the moment we stepped off the plane. Easy pick up, clean near new car and the price was good. Nice to talk to your customer care people too who sorted a couple of minor issues

No queues at the airport in Thailand, polite staff and nice clean vehicle made a great start to our vacation. The car drove well and drop off was just as easy as pick up.
