Recommended Posts

             i need to hire a car maybe in bkk or hau hin but i do not want to rent from somchai around the corner ( for obvious reasons )    so can anyone advise of best and cheapest rental company to use .   i was quoted 1000 baht a day for a small economy car ,      i think thats a bit excessive ?   especially when they advertised on thaivisa  at renting a small economy car at only $11  a day. 

 

             also,  we are only 2 travelling around thailand , is it better to rent a deisel or a small petrol ?    which is more economical .

 

            THANKS

            PJ

I can recommend you Sixt in Bangkok and Avis in Hua Hin. Both have excellent service and can communicate in English with you. They have occasional promotions that are not advertised on their website, which I don't recommend for booking.
I booked both through their call centre.

I have good experience with Chic car rent. They are partly owned by Honda Thailand and they only use Honda cars. They have branches all over Thailand.

The good thing with them is you can bring the car one way without paying any extra fees if you rent for minimum 5 days.  

And they offer very good prices from 700 baht per day .

Well, not so many branches [emoji6] They have 10, and of which three are within the greater Bangkok.

I paid 800 baht not so long time ago.

That's the easy part.

Diesel cars are very rare and unlikely found at car rentals.

Modern cars are usually fueled with E10 or E20 (10 or 20% ethanol).

Fuel prices are low at least compared to high taxing countries in Europe.

 

When looking at the price: have you considered the cost/type of insurance?

Standard 3rd party insurances can be laughably low.

I rented a car in Phuket last year on a German website which goes through a US company ("CarDelMar") with contract under German jurisdiction.

This way I made sure that the price included an appropriate 3rd party damage of 2 million Baht.

Car was actually provided by "National" at the airport.
A Honda Civic, 73 Euro for 3 days (about 2800 Baht).

That was in deep off-season (September).

Best and Cheapest ? No such thing. For the peace of mind of having real First Class insurance stick with the big names - Avis, Hertz, etc.

+1

And you can use a "broker site" from your home country to search, pay in your currency, proper insurance and a contract under your countries jurisdiction.

My rental went smooth, no surprises, 10000 Baht CC deposit returned in a few days.

 

Just noticed that the thread is almost a year old :biggrin:

Guess the thread starter had his car.
