Important information about Bangkok car hire

Maybe one of the most stunning pieces of architecture you'll ever witness for hiring a car in Bangkok is The Grand Palace. This is a sprawling complex that was a formal royal residence and now is somewhere that you can get tours of all the buildings here, which include museums and several temples. If shopping is more your thing, then it makes sense to make a visit to the Chatuchak Weekend Market. Four different major routes travel each direction out of the city of Bangkok—numbers one through four. Because Bangkok is a densely populated city, parking in the central area can be very difficult for rental cars in Bangkok. With around seven car hire locations in Bangkok, including locations at both of the local airports, renting a car is quite easy.

While visiting, is it worthwhile to rent a car while visiting Bangkok, Thailand?

Trying to drive in hired cars in Bangkok can be difficult during most times of the day but especially during morning and evening rush hours and anywhere in the central area most hours of the day. A great spot for nightlife that is only a couple of hours away by a people carrier rental is Pattaya. This area is the adventure capital of Thailand because it contains activities like bungee jumping, scuba diving, snorkeling, and skydiving. It is also well known for the party atmosphere found on many of its streets. While there are certain parts of Bangkok that are walkable, the sheer number of places you're going to want to visit both inside and outside of Bangkok makes a cheap car rental in Bangkok almost a must when visiting this area.

What different driving laws should I keep in mind while driving in Bangkok, Thailand?

The first thing that visitors will notice when driving hired cars in Bangkok is that you will be driving on the left side of the road as opposed to the right. There tends to be quite a bit of aggressive driving in Bangkok and you'll find that cutting people off and tailgating happens much more frequently in a cheap car rental in Bangkok as compared to where you are coming from. Every passenger in Bangkok car rentals must wear a seatbelt and kids must ride in the approved child seat. The legal limit for alcohol, while you drive in Bangkok, is 0.05%. If you want to know more about the most current rules and regulations regarding driving in Bangkok, it is best to contact the local Motor Vehicle Department upon your arrival.

Will I need a special driving license or permit to drive a rental car in Bangkok, Thailand if I’m visiting from another country?

For a luxury car rental in Bangkok you will need to be 21 years of age. You will need to have a driving license that has been valid for at least a year and you need to carry your passport with you at all times. If your driving license has your photograph and is in the English language, that is generally all you will need to rent a car. To be safe it is a recommendation that you also have an international driver's permit with you to rent a car.
