FAQ
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for a rental car should preferably be made by credit card. It is possible to pay by debit card, however at the rental counter you will need a credit card issued to the main driver in order to secure the deposit for your rental car.
Who is allowed to drive the rental car and what are the conditions?
A rental car can be driven by a main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. The main and additional drivers are to present a valid driving license, which they have been in possession of for at least one year (please refer to the rental conditions), and a valid identity card/passport. Additionally, the main driver is to present a valid credit card issued in their name.
Do I have to pick up and return the car at any time? What happens if I am late for pick-up?
We recommend that you pick up the car at the agreed time as the availability of the car cannot be guaranteed in case of a delay. As a rule, local suppliers keep vehicles available up to 30 or 60 minutes after the agreed time. If a delay is inevitable, please contact the rental agency (you will find their contact details on the voucher).
What documents are required to pick up the vehicle?
When picking up the vehicle, the main driver is to present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driving's license and their valid credit card.

Chiang Mai Attractions and Travel Tips

Cheap Car Rental Chiang Mai

Thailand’s second city and a bastion of Lanna culture, Chiang Mai manages to embrace modern dynamism with a down-to-earth charm and a heart that has been so characteristic of this northern hub. HAPPYCAR is here to help you find the best car hire Chiang Mai has to offer so you can take full advantage of this ancient city, with a car hire from Chiang Mai Airport also available. We check the prices of international and local providers so that you don’t have to check each website to provide you with the best deals to make your money go further on a rental car that fits your specific vacation needs.

General Information

Comparisons with Bangkok are inevitable and stark. The hurried flurry of the capital is nowhere to be seen here, as if the city’s quiet leafy gardens and modest wooden houses are reflected into how they live their life. Chiang Mai was the capital of Lanna in 1296 and was the reason for the abundance of temples in the city and fortunately they exist still today. They’re not stuffy museums, they remain as living community centers. Chiang Mai is seen as one of the most livable cities in Southeast Asia and is also a great place to spend some quality time in a spa or health resort.

To Do

The night bazaars around the Ping River are a great hub for nightlife in Chiang Mai, where you can whittle away your entire vacation, or you could head to the Botanic Garden to breathe in the delicate Thai orchids. The trekking opportunities around the city are many, and you’ll be riddled with choice between all the natural attractions dotting the north of Thailand. There is a wide range of festivals in Chiang Mai to get caught up in, and is one of the most popular places in the country to see in the New Year. In November, the Loy Krathong Full Moon Festival sends thousands of candles floating down the Ping River in lotus-leaf boats.

Attractions

The temples in Chiang Mai are a real treat to walk around, exhibiting architectural styles from Thailand, Burma and Sri Lanka, and many are within walking distance of each other. Wat Suthep is one of north Thailand’s most sacred temples and most certainly worth the challenging 300 steps to view the beautiful gilded stupas that were built in 1383 during the Lanna period and an unrivaled view of the city. Around the Wat Suthep are the Bhuping Royal Palace Gardens and a hill-tribe village that sells many local handicrafts. Another great opportunity is to visit elephant parks, to enjoy bathing and feeding elephants, but check out the elephant tours before you go. Baanchang Elephant Park treats their animals very well and is also relatively cheap.

Eating

Food on offer in Chiang Mai is second only to Bangkok, with its particular specialty dishes on offer that perfectly represents northern cuisine. Try Khao Soi Kai, yellow wheat noodles in a curry broth, or Lanna-style pork curry. There is also a wide selection of international cuisine, from British and French to Spanish and Mexican. For some really authentic Thai food experiences, try one of the many roadside stalls set up in the evening or outdoor food markets for some great atmosphere.

Excursions

You’ll never feel cooped up in Chiang Mai, as the surrounding countryside is dotted with day-trip options in all directions, something for which a Chiang Mai car rental is perfect. Doi Suthep and its eagle’s-nest temple are perhaps the best quick trip you can make in the area with a car hire in Chiang Mai, and a wander around the pastoral ruins of Wiang Kum Kam on the southern periphery is a memorable experience. Much further south, the quiet town of Lamphun offers classic sightseeing, and is best arrived at with a car rental Chiang Mai, as buses are unreliable. There are also some good options for longer jaunts, notably to Bangkok in the south and the relaxing island of Phuket even further down.
