Frequently asked questions
Secure your wheels without paying in advance with our Book Now Pay Later option. When you go to collect your car in Phuket, just have whoever’s driving present a valid credit card to pay in full. The rental car company will also place a hold on your card in the amount of the deposit. It’s a great way to help you plan your budget and alleviate the stress of booking. Prepayment will apply to some cheaper deals. Expedia search results will display if a car is eligible for “pay at pickup.”
You should receive a complete refund on your prepaid booking if you let us know a minimum of six hours before the collection time. Read through your rental policy for all the details. Our Customer Service Portal may have what you need too.

Anyone with a valid driver’s license 21 and over can rent a vehicle in Phuket. While some outlets may be willing to accommodate drivers younger than 21, you can expect additional fees. Find out what age range the young renter fee applies to, and associated costs, before making your reservation. There are also restrictions on the types of cars available to young drivers. Higher age limits apply for specialty and luxury vehicles.
Before you can take the wheel in Phuket, you’ll need a driver’s license and a credit card. If you choose not to take out the rental company’s insurance policy, you may also have to show proof of your own coverage. Requirements may vary, so understand the policy terms and conditions before you choose a rental supplier.
If you hop behind the wheel in Phuket, you’ll have to drive on the left. Note that the steering wheel will also be on the opposite side to what you’re used to. Consider booking a vehicle with automatic transmission for an easier motoring experience.
Arrange an International Driving Permit if you intend to drive in Phuket, as your U.S. license alone won’t be enough. You’ll need to have both in order to legally jump behind the wheel here.
