Thai News - 15th July
With lock-down now being eased further, and with international flights looking to start again soon, we suggest that maybe you beat the crowd and book summer, autumn or even winter car rental now, or just hold on option and amend, or cancel, for free later.
National now Drive Car Rental
National have changed their name to Drive Car Rental, but everything else is the same, same vehicles, depots etc..
One ways in Thailand
These are usually free, depot to depot, but sometimes fees may apply depending on car hire supplier, length of rental and start and finish point and times. Budget are usually best for one ways, if rental over 3 days then no charge, followed by Hertz at 5 days needed. Sixt are now charging fees of between THB2,500 and THB10,000 for a one way, regardless of length of rental. Thai Rent are free if over 7 days.
Why use us
With over 20 years experience of arranging car hire in Thailand, we know customers like our low prices, but good still service, that they can amend bookings after car collected and we offer delivery and collection nationwide.
One ways are a bit complicated, so we can advise on whether better to changes supplier, or rent for say, 5 days instead of 4.
Pay deposit to us, and on arrival the actual car hire cost to the supplier.
Driving a hire vehicle in Thailand
The vehicle is insured as well as the driver. This means that anyone can drive the automobile, and the lead driver does not have to be in the vehicle.
Extra drivers are free but need to be named and present to sign paperwork. What this means you can hire a car for a friend who may not have a credit card, as long as you go as lead driver and sign for the car. They can then drive the car, without you in it.
Usually free if within fifteen kilometres of a depot, but exceptions can apply, especially if out of hours, or perhaps a short one or two day rental, or when delivery within a one way hire.
Budget have the widest range of depots throughout Thailand and cars can delivered nearly anywhere, but fees apply. if quite a distance from a depot, when choosing a time, best make for 1000H to 1600H, to avoid possible overtime fees, depending on distance. Please note fuel used in delivery/collection service is not replaced.
Apart from Chic, you must be 21 years of age to drive, but Chic allow drivers aged 18, 19 & 20 years to drive, but pay an extra THB150/day locally. Licence held for at least one year.
Minivans in Thailand
vans vary in size to seat either six, ten, twelve or fifteen passengers, with seat belts.
Book with small deposit, pay balance on arrival
Our customers can book with a small deposit, and then pay the balance to the local supplier in Thailand,when they collect their vehicle. This way, no pandemic, financial crisis etc., can affect you getting your car.
Also as you can now get credit cards with foreign currency allocated, you can sort your Baht at a time and rate that suits you, making your booking a no risk transaction.
GPS is available as an optional extra, but you best book early for peak times, just like high demand vehicles, as they do get sold out. Multi-lingual, but maps are only in English or Thai.
Please note that cars cannot be driven outside of Thailand, and to do so invalidates insurance. Rental vehicles cannot be left at border posts, so look for nearest depot to where you want to get to, and then get a bus or taxi.
Zero Excess Damage Waiver
Budget,Hertz and National offer Zero Excess included in their rates, whilst Sixt and Thai Rent have an excess, that can be reduced to zero, by paying extra insurance locally. National also offer rates with an excess, which are cheaper than their zero excess rates.
