Car Rental Phuket International Airport
Rent a car at Phuket International Airport for the perfect holiday transport option. Phuket Airport is located in the north of Phuket island, 32km from Phuket City in the Phuket Province of Thailand. The airport is a vital resource for Thailand's tourism industry, particuarly as Phuket Island is one of the country's most popular holiday destinations. As a consequence, Phuket International is Thailand's third-busiest airport, after Suvarnabhumi Airport and Don Mueang International Airport in Bangkok, serving more than 11 million passengers annually. Phuket International Airport car rental desks are located just outside the terminal building. Your Nova Car Hire booking confirmation will include details of your specific car rental supplier and their location.
Once you hire a car in Phuket, you won't be surprised to hear that "Phuket" means "hill" in Malay. Everywhere you look in the island's interior, you are surrounded by fertile, green highlands. Rubber plantations and remnants of the island's tin mining operations survive, but the predominant industry in Phuket is tourism, and most visitors make straight for the beaches of the west as soon as they land. These are among the most beautiful beaches in Thailand. Best visited during the dry season, they are defined by their endless expanses of soft sand, enticing water, and superb snorkelling and scuba diving.
Make the most of your car hire in Phuket and take an adrenaline-pumping drive along the cliff roads, indulge your inner tourist with an elephant safari into the jungle, and forge unforgettable memories with a sea kayak tour around offshore caves and limestone hong (lagoons with sheer walls that emerge at low tide). You can also treat yourself to some of the most appetising seafood in the entire country.
