Car Rentals in Chiang Mai

Renting a car in Chiang Mai are usually fairly inexpensive and easy to arrange for. A small car will cost just over 1,000 baht per day. Make sure that the insurance is comprehensive and that your car is dent-free before you sign anything. If the car has ANY damage, be sure to note it on the rental agreement or you may be held responsible for it. Keep the copy of the rental agreement with you just in case you’re stopped.

If the police pull you over, don't argue. Just smile, be patient, polite and very courteous. As a foreigner, they normally will not ticket you, unless of course you've done something really bad or you are silly enough to quickly speak Thai with them!

All you need to rent a car is a valid driving license, written using the Roman alphabet. If it is not, an International Driving License is required to have and your passport.

There are many smaller car rental agents in Chiang Mai but be aware that some rent cars offer no insurance or invalid insurance, as the borrow cars from private individuals so insurance may not be valid. Not to mention the vehicle service may not be in order. So I have only listed well known ones who offer good vcars for rent and offer services to asure worry free experiences as far I know.

You may also want a pick up and delivery service to be available, as well as 24 hour service.

Chiang Rai
