8.0 Excellent2 Nov 2019
Pros: Car was good and clean. Apparently, picking up/returning a car in Thailand is not something that is done much. No signs at any of the airports for car rental/return. Took a while to find it in Phuket to pickup and about an hour to find in Bangkok to return.Cons: Airport signs for car rental/returns.

5.2 Okay21 Sep 2017
Didn't accept the insurance I purchased.Pros: I purchased the added insurance from Kayak, so I didnt have to get it from Avis. Avis didnt understand what it was and made up buy it again from directly. Very disappointing experience. I did attempt to call the insurance provided directly, but there phone lines were busy. Waited for 20 mins then hung up.Cons: Avis dropped us off at our resort, instead of back at the airport. It was only an extra 5min different, but we appropriated they willingness.
5.2 Okay15 Jul 2016
Horrible CarsCons: The Toyota Vios i was assigned was old (150K km), the front tyres were nearly bald, car was full of scratches, headlamps weren't even bright and filthy! Steering wheel was sticky and ... the list goes on. Shall stop before i lose my lunch. The thugs operating the garage obviously won't be interested to give you a replacement.

Top tips for renting a car in Phuket City

  • One of the most exciting aspects of any trip abroad is exploring the countryside. This is especially so in Phuket City because of its vibrant surroundings. However, if you truly want to get out and explore, then driving your own vehicle is the best means to get off the beaten path car, as the only other options in the city are taxis, buses, or tuk tuks.
  • Excited to begin your trip in Phuket City? If so and you are planning on renting a vehicle during your time in the city, Phuket International Airport’s hire car counters can be found in the Arrivals Hall.
  • Drivers new to Phuket City should make sure to keep their eyes peeled for any animals or pedestrians crossing the road suddenly. In the case of animals, there are many strays located in the outskirts of the city that often enjoy sunbathing by the road, so be cautious when driving. In terms of pedestrians, Phuket City is a lively town (especially at night), so many pedestrians will be out and about.
  • Rush hour in Phuket City is luckily not nearly as severe as it is in Bangkok. On a normal day, the morning rush hour is a mere hour long and lasts from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. during the work week. However, the afternoon and evening rush hour is somewhat more severe and it generally starts at around 4:00 p.m. and then tapers off at around 7:00 p.m.

Large cars are popular in Thailand, though, so drivers shouldn’t have any problems.
