Car Rental Phuket International Airport
Phuket International Airport is located in the north of Phuket island, 32km from Phuket City in the Phuket Province of Thailand. The airport is an important hub for Thailand's tourism industry, given Phuket Island's popularity as a holiday destination. Indeed, 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.
The name "Phuket" means "hill" in Malay, which is not surprising, given the predominance of lush, green highlands in the island's interior. You will still find rubber plantations and fragments of the island's tin mining operations, but the real business in Phuket is tourism, and most visitors head for the beaches of the west. These are among the best in Thailand and are best visited during the dry season. You will be treated to vast expanses of sand, inviting 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.
