FAQ Overview
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for your rental car is mainly 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 the main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. Please note that the main driver must present a valid credit card issued in their name. Furthermore, the main and additional drivers must be in possession of a valid driving license for at least 1 year (for further information, please refer to the rental conditions). Moreover, both, the main and additional drivers are required to present a valid identity card/passport and must be of the minimum age specified in the rental conditions.
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 delay. As a general 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 must present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driver's license and their valid credit card.

Phuket Attractions and Travel Tips

Cheap Car Rental Phuket

The wealthiest province in Thailand, spurred mainly through its tourism, Phuket is technically an island, though you wouldn’t think it when you witness its size. Phuket is overly branded as a party place, which has led to most people ignoring the vast array of other experiences at you disposal. Your rental car can help unlock these opportunities and remove the tiresome cliches. HAPPYCAR is here to help you find the best car hire Phuket has to offer so you can take full advantage of this glitzy island, and a car hire from Phuket Airport is 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 on a car hire to make your money go further on a rental car that fits your specific needs. You have the options of choosing car size, pick up location and type of insurance to ensure you get the best deal on a great car hire!

General Information

The Pearl of the Andaman was once a popular trade route between China and India, and has held the crown of Thailand’s most popular beach destination for many years, featuring idyllic scenery and warm blue sea. Phuket is rightly seen as an island of fun, with deep-sea diving, high-end dining, white beaches and raucous nightlife, but alongside the pulse is peace, and the island offers an interesting snapshot of Thai history and culture.

To Do

You’re utterly spoilt for choice for outdoor activities on Phuket, including free diving, windsurfing, kite surfing, wake boarding and fishing, but to really experience the island it’s best to take a Phuket car rental to explore at your leisure. For family fun that is not on the beach, try the Upside Down House and the A-Maze, both near Siam Niramit. Head to Phuket town for a trip through its Old Town, where you can experience some tangible history and culture. Chinese merchants left their mark on the town with enormous mansions and shop houses, and are a great relic for Sino-Portuguese architecture. In November, Phuket town buzzes with processions, theater shows and food stalls to celebrate the Vegetarian Festival, an annual imperative for the Buddhists on the island.

Attractions

Some of the best sights in Phuket come in the form of their stunning vistas, and a car hire in Phuket is a great way to see them. Phang Nga Bay is a distinct treasure thanks to its sheer limestone cliffs jutting straight out of the emerald-green water. Other small islands around Phuket have been featured in a score of movies, such as James Bond Island and Phi Phi Island. The 10 mile-long national park beach of Hat Mai Khao is a great place to while away a few hours, or if you’re after something a little more rugged you can try the 48 square mile Khao Lak-Lam Ru National Park. Phuket also boasts some exquisite temples, with the Shrine of the Serene Light and Chalong Temple chief among them.

Eating

Food in Phuket is very international, thanks to the massive numbers of tourists that descend on the island, but there are also the usual Thai favorites on offer. Seafood is obviously a popular choice, but Phuket also enjoys its own style of preparation and cooking. The Koh Yao Yai style focuses intensely on freshness, and the fried noodle dishes on the island can’t be missed. Nam Phrik Kung Siap is a mixture of dried chilies and smoked shrimp eaten with fresh vegetables, and a local favorite. Phuket also locally grows pineapples and cashews, so expect to find a nice variety at cheap prices.

Excursions

Aside from the dazzling array of islands to hop to, Phuket is connected directly to the mainland and a car hire in Phuket can take you not only around the large island but north into mainland Thailand. Bangkok, the country’s frenetic capital, can be found on the central plains, while a Phuket car hire can take you all the way through the country, witnessing the entire gamut of Thai life, before arriving at Chiang Mai, the de facto capital of Northern Thailand and the heart of ancient Lanna culture.
