KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Chiang Mai

  • Chiang Mai includes multiple areas within the town that you can visit, like the City Arts and Cultural Center that shows the Thai city's history. You can get a vehicle from car rentals in Chiang Mai and visit various elephant sanctuaries, such as the De'Kashor Elephant Home & Hilltribe Village, located about four miles from the city center. If you want to learn about the history of several groups that settled in the Thai mountains, you can drive approximately 17 miles to the scenic Hmong Village in Doi Pui. Using Chiang Mai car rentals ensures that you can appreciate the country's natural wonders, including a ride to Doi Inthanon. This national park sits around 58 miles from the town center and features waterfalls and hiking pathways along the mountain.
  • Chiang Mai International Airport is about 3.4 miles from the central city. It contains a Rental Car Center on the arrival hall floor, featuring several companies, such as Sixt, Avis, Budget, Yesaway, Drive Car Rental, and THAIRENTACAR. To get their services, you can reach them in the Terminal area, such as the Sixt and Budget, found downstairs at a walking distance in the arrival hall. You can also access the other Chiang Mai car rentals between the gates within the same floor in the International Terminal, for instance, finding Drive Car Rental between Gates 10-11.
  • The city has several Superhighways like the Chiang Mai-Lampang Road that link it to other major towns within the region and nation, allowing you to extend your trip to areas outside Chiang Mai with ease. With the different intersecting roads, alleys, and streets, you can install a GPS to facilitate confident driving within the town. During your visit to Chiang Mai, it's essential to note that Thailand uses the UK transport system by driving on the road's left side. This city also has numerous cyclists, and you want to keep a keen eye on all the bicycles as you drive.
  • Chiang Mai usually has morning-hour traffic from about 7am to 9am and evening rush hour from approximately 5pm to 7pm. You also want to organize your schedule in the afternoon while minding the mini-peak congestion at around 3:30pm to 4pm caused by schools' closing. The winter season offers pleasantly cool weather in this town, making it an ideal time to visit the region. Nonetheless, carry a sweatshirt or jacket for evening and nighttime use when the conditions rapidly change.

Pros:

We enjoyed the prompt response of the staff to our requests. We booked the car online half an hour before the pick up. We picked up in the wrong office but they got us the car very quickly. We received detailed info about the car, the rental conditions and insurance before signing the contract. For dropoff, the staff was kind enough to drive us to the airport. Totally recommend.

The effort the lady at the counter made to rectify the problem.

Cons:

I booked an SUV but was given a Toyota Double Cab truck. I was contemplating taking it anyway however the tires were dangerously worn and unsafe to drive so I decided against it. This resulted in an hour delay to change vehicles.
