Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best rates on a Chiang Mai Budget rental car?
We strive to get you the best rates, whether you reserve your car. However, booking ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to read the mileage policy and don't add an extra driver to avoid any surprise fees.
What do I need to bring when I pick up my car rental in Chiang Mai?
You will need to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What is the minimum age to rent a car in Chiang Mai?
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Chiang Mai is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles, may have an added fee if you are under 25. Take time to check Budget's policy to find out what the total cost is for you.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Chiang Mai?
That all depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Chiang Mai. Compact or economy vehicles are easier to park and ideal for short drives. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have more room and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little luxury on their Chiang Mai getaway can choose the premium category for a car like an Audi A4 or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does Thailand require car insurance?
In Thailand you do need to have insurance before you rent. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Budget require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Budget does require a deposit when you book your rental car. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you book your vehicle for your trip. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Budget?
At CarRentals.com, we advise a full to full policy. You receive the car with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Budget.
Do I need unlimited miles when I drive in Chiang Mai?
Chiang Mai certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does Budget offer one-way rentals in Chiang Mai?
Budget usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to return your rental at a different Budget. However, there may be an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
