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

  • Car hire in Chiang Rai offers extra flexibility for trips compared to if you were to make journeys on alternative modes of transport, like buses or taxis. This is because you can depart whenever you want rather than having to follow the bus or train timetable. For instance, if you want to drive to Lampang, you can do so in about 3h 30min. The same trip on the 166 and 152 buses takes in excess of 5 hours, and you also have to abide by the bus schedule.
  • Chiang Rai Airport (CEI) offers a range of car hire companies for you to pick from, including Budget and Hertz, so it will be easy for you to find your dream car. You will also be able to locate the car hire agencies with ease. For instance, Hertz is located within the terminal building arrivals hall. It’s generally open from 08:00 to 20:00 throughout the week, so it caters for early and late flights.
  • When you get a car hire in Chiang Rai, you will see that it’s a popular city with tourists from all over the world. There are lots of visitors that are interested in exploring the mountainous surroundings and the impressive temples. The tourists often cross the road in areas that aren’t designated pedestrian crossings, so you should take care when driving in the centre. There are also lots of bicycles and mopeds on the streets, so it’s important that you check your mirrors regularly, especially if you’re turning.
  • When you get a Chiang Rai car hire, you will find that the roads can be very hectic with traffic, especially during rush hour. If you want to avoid the busier times on the roads, then you should not drive between 07:30 to 09:30 and 17:00 to 19:30, which is when locals are often travelling to and from work. One of the roads that get extremely busy is Phaholyothin Road, one of the main roads in the city. If possible, you should find an alternative road to travel on when in your car.
  • Book your rental car in Chiang Rai at least 2 days before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Chiang Rai are around 41% cheaper than other car types, on average

For example, a Mitsubishi Mirage is one such compact vehicle that is recommended. If you’re planning on heading out to the mountains, then you should go for something a bit more robust, such as a Toyota Fortuner; this is better suited for uneven surfaces and steep terrain. All the cars should provide you with air conditioning too, which is very helpful when it comes to battling the heat and humidity in the country.

When in Chiang Rai or other urban areas, the speed limit is 50 km/h. If you don’t abide by the limits, you may be prosecuted by local authorities, which can include a fine.

  • Where are the best places to park in Chiang Rai?

    It’s not easy to find parking in Chiang Rai, with most car parks coming at a cost. One car park which is conveniently located and low in cost is the open-air car park in the Mueang Chiang Rai District. This costs about ฿ 20 (around A$ 0.80) per hour and is a roughly 10-minute walk from popular tourist attractions like Chiang Rai Clock Tower. Alternatively, you can find on-street parking, which is sporadic across the city and costs about ฿ 10 (around A$ 0.40) per hour.

Pros:

Vehicle size was exactly what we needed for four adults with luggage.

Cons:

Expected on airport office, or representative to meet us. Had to ask around to find out where the in town office was, and the hire a cab to get there and rent the vehicle. Confusion on turn-in. I was told a Budget rep would pick up the car at our hotel by Chiang Rai rep. When I called for pick-up in Chiang Mai I was told they did not pick up. Eventually they relented and picked up the car. Car pick-up person in Chiang Mai expected me to pay the rental fee even though I had already paid in Chaing Rai. Good thing I had the receipt to prove payment.

Overall is good. Car is clean, staff is friendly. But I was so frustrated to understand how to contact with staff and pick up car after arrival at the airport. In my case, I asked help center in the airport and he called rental car office on behalf of me. Since most of tourists do not have local phone, so that better to communicate by whatapp or sms for arrival. Pls make clear 1) chic rent car doesn’t have counter in the airport 2) once arrive, pls send sms or whatsup 3) pls wait for the car at No2 exit, staff bring the car. Then overseas tourist is very safe and comfortable. I hope company better to improve this point.
