KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Koh Samui

  • It is advisable to familiarise yourself with the major road connections, for an easier experience when driving a hire car in Koh Samui. For example, Ring Road is the main road that circles around the island. It is a quick way to get to the beaches, restaurants and other destinations around the island. Chaweng Beach Road is another main road that runs through the heart of Chaweng Beach, one of the most popular tourist destinations on Koh Samui. It is home to many shops, restaurants and hotels. Lamai Beach Road is the main road that runs through the heart of Lamai Beach, another popular tourist destination on Koh Samui.
  • Koh Samui, Thailand, has strict laws against drunk driving. The legal blood alcohol concentration limit is 0.05% or less, and driving a car under the influence of alcohol can result in heavy fines, imprisonment and confiscation of your driver's licence. It's crucial to obey all local traffic laws and regulations and avoid driving under the influence of alcohol to ensure the safety of all drivers and pedestrians on the road.
  • There are several restricted roads you should be aware of when you hire a car in Koh Samui. Samui Ring Road, for instance, has some portions where the speed limit is reduced, especially in areas where there are sharp curves or steep hills. Wat Phra Yai Road leads to the Big Buddha temple, which is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Koh Samui. However, there are some restrictions on this road, especially during certain religious festivals or ceremonies. It is important to check the local news or ask the locals before driving on this road.
  • To call Koh Samui a tropical paradise is no exaggeration. The largest island in Thailand’s Chumphon Archipelago, Koh Samui has kilometres of sparkling coastline, waterfalls, temples and rainforests to explore. From Laem Yai Beach in the north to the tiny beaches of the Samui South Coast, you’ll find one of the most well-developed road systems in the region. This makes car hire in Koh Samui a great way to explore the island on your own schedule.
  • Samui International Airport (USM) has both a domestic and an international terminal. Both lead to a main arrivals hall, where you will find car hire kiosks for companies like Avis, Sixt, Budget, Thrifty and more. Picking up your Koh Samui car hire at the airport is a convenient option, as this is precisely where you’ll need to go when you leave the island. However, it’s a good idea to book online ahead of time to ensure you're able to get the vehicle specifications you want.
  • You’ll need to have an International Driver’s Licence to be eligible for car hire in Koh Samui. While the road quality is quite good compared to other islands in the region, you should still be prepared to find some potholes and difficult sections of road. For this reason, it’s a good idea to have insurance for your Koh Samui car hire.
  • There can be a wide variety of hazards on the road in Koh Samui, from stray dogs to massive tropical storms. Even after a storm has passed, there will often be a lot of sand, water and debris on the roads, making safe driving more difficult. You won’t find much by way of street lights, so it’s important to take extra care when driving at night. If you think a person or animal might be about to step out in your path, slow down and don’t be shy about giving a short, friendly beep of the horn.
  • Book your rental car in Koh Samui at least 4 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price

FAQs about renting a car in Koh Samui

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Koh Samui?

    If you plan on sticking to the coastal roads around popular resorts like The Passage Samui Villas & Resort or Anantara Bophut Koh Samui Resort, then a compact car may be all you need. However, if you’d like to venture inland to explore Namtok Tar Nim & Magic Garden, Wat Khunaram temple or waterfalls like Tartan Waterfall or Mountain Waterfall, then a 4X4 may be a better option. This will make the steep inland roads a lot easier. If you’ll be exploring the coast more extensively, a 4X4 will also help with sandy tracks and difficult sections of road.

  • What’s the speed limit in Koh Samui?

    In the built-up areas of Koh Samui, you may find speed limits of 40 km/h, 45 km/h or 60 km/h. You’ll probably also notice that many of the locals don’t stick to these limits. However, when you’re getting car hire in Koh Samui, it’s essential to follow all posted speed limits. Once you’re on major roads like Route 4169 or Route 4170, the speed limit can get up to 90 km/h or more. However, the condition of these roads and traffic density varies greatly, so it’s important to keep an eye out for signs and drive to the conditions.

  • Where are the best places to park in Koh Samui?

    For the most part, parking is free in Koh Samui, and since there generally aren’t any traffic wardens, people tend to park wherever they can fit in. This can make it difficult to find a parking spot in high-traffic areas, like Chaweng Noi Beach. At some of Koh Samui’s most popular attractions, like Grandfather's Grandmother's Rocks, you may have to pay a small parking fee. However, it’s rarely more than around ฿ 20 (A$ 0.85).
