Driving in Bangkok is a unique experience. Unlike in the UK, Thais drive on the left side of the road. The traffic can be intense, so it's recommended to rent a compact car that can easily weave through the Bangkok streets.

Speed Limits and Traffic Rules

  • The speed limit in cities is 60 km/h, and on highways, it varies between 90 and 120 km/h.
  • Using a mobile phone while driving is illegal.

Parking in Bangkok

Parking in Bangkok can be tricky. While shopping malls provide free parking, streetside parking might require a parking token, bought from local convenience stores.

Public Transportation Availability

In case you want to take a break from driving, Bangkok offers a plethora of public transport options like the BTS Skytrain, MRT Subway, and multiple bus lines.

Exploring Bangkok and Surroundings

Bangkok's diverse neighbourhoods are best explored in a rental car. From the bustling streets of Sukhumvit to the quieter, upmarket area of Thonglor, each area offers a unique perspective.

  • Visit the Grand Palace, home to the kings of Siam.
  • Take a boat ride at the floating market in Damnoen Saduak.
  • Drive to Ayutthaya, the historical capital of Thailand.

Airport Pick-up

Most car hire services provide pick-ups from Suvarnabhumi Airport, Bangkok’s main international airport. Make sure to check this while booking your car.

Currency and Climate

The local currency is Thai Baht (THB), and the city has a tropical monsoon climate with high levels of humidity. The best time to visit Bangkok is from November to February.

Seasonal Events

  • Experience the celebration of Songkran, Thai New Year, happening in April.
  • In November, witness Loy Krathong, when people float lanterns on the river.

With your rental and this guide to hand, you're all set to hit the road and start making memorable moments. Enjoy your trip to Bangkok!

How old do you have to be to hire a car in Bangkok?

What's the best car size for me?

⌃

Car size depends on your personal needs and the number of people travelling with you. For city driving, a compact or mid-size car may be more practical due to dense traffic and narrow streets. However, if you plan to venture out of town or travel with a lot of baggage, a more spacious car such as a SUV may be more appropriate.

When is the best time to hire a car in Bangkok?

Bangkok is a popular year-round destination, but the best time to hire a car is generally during the dry season, which runs from November to February. During this period, weather conditions are milder and there's less chance of rain.

Is it possible to hire a car in Bangkok without a credit card?

⌃

Most car hire agencies in Bangkok require a valid credit card in the name of the main driver to make the reservation and deposit. However, some agencies may accept other methods of payment, such as debit cards or cash. On our site, you can directly filter the car hire agencies that offer other payment methods in addition to the credit card.
