Customer questions about Udon Thani Airport car hire

I would like to know if i can book a car and pay the full amount when I do my booking online. I'm booking a car for my uncle who will be arriving in Udon Thani on sunday but he doesnt have access to a computer to book.

Hello, yes that is fine, most of our rentals are pre-paid online. Your uncle will need to provide a credit card for security only on arrival and pay for any optional extras on arrival. You can reservce them online, but they are paid locally.
