Car Hire Phuket Airport Useful Information

Phuket airport in Thailand serves one of the busiest tourist destinations in Asia. Phuket is a large island and there is plenty to see. Tour company excursions are available to all the popular destinations but with many costing £50 or more it will not be too long before you have earned back the cost of hiring a car at Phuket Airport.  Located in the northern part of the island, the airport is a bustling hub that welcomes millions of travelers each year. 

A hire car from Phuket Airport also means you can set your own itinerary and avoid spending hours at the obligatory shops en route. Even without the savings on excursions, our Phuket Airport car hire is excellent value. No one works harder to bring you low cost car hire at Phuket Airport and we can get these great deals by working closely with the major car hire companies to gain access to their lowest prices.
 
  1. Car Rental Desks: Upon arrival at Phuket International Airport, you'll find the car rental desks in the arrivals hall representing both international brands (like Hertz, Avis, and Budget) and local companies.

  2. Booking in Advance: It's advisable to book your car rental in advance, especially during the peak tourist season. This ensures you get the type of car you want and often at a better rate.

  3. Documentation: Typically, you'll need a valid passport, a credit card (for the deposit), and an International Driving Permit (IDP) alongside your domestic driver's license and of course your Car Hire Booking Confirmation/Voucher.

  4. Vehicle Inspection: Before leaving the airport, thoroughly inspect the vehicle for any damages and ensure they're documented to avoid disputes upon return.

Driving from Phuket Airport:

  1. Driving on the Left: In Thailand, you drive on the left side of the road. If you're from a country where you drive on the right, this might take some getting used to.

  2. Road Conditions: Major roads in Phuket are generally in good condition. However, smaller roads, especially in remote areas, can be narrow and less maintained.

  3. Traffic: Traffic can be dense in popular areas like Patong, Kata, and Phuket Town. Be cautious of motorcycles, which often weave in and out of traffic.

  4. Signage: Most road signs are in both Thai and English, making navigation relatively straightforward.

  5. Main Route: The main route from Phuket Airport is Route 4031, which connects to Route 402 (Thep Kasattri Road). This will take you to most parts of the island.

  6. Parking: Most hotels and resorts offer parking. In busy areas, you may need to pay for parking. Always park in designated areas.

  7. Tolls: There are no toll roads on Phuket Island.

General Tips and Safety:

  1. Stay Alert: Be vigilant for motorbikes, tuk-tuks, and pedestrians.

  2. Seat Belts: Always wear your seatbelt, and ensure all passengers do the same.

  3. Emergency Number: In case of an emergency, dial 191 or 1669 (for medical emergencies).

  4. Fuel Stations: There are plenty of fuel stations around the island, and most are open from early morning until late evening. Some stations are open 24/7.

  5. Respect Local Customs: This includes giving way to monks and funeral processions.

In conclusion, hiring a car in Phuket offers the flexibility to explore the island at your own pace. While driving conditions are generally good, always stay alert and drive defensively, especially in busier areas.
