What you need to know about car rentals
How do I get a Chiang Rai National car rental at a great rate?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the best price, whether you reserve your car. But getting ahead of time can help you save even more. Make sure to not add an additional driver and go over the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
Do I need to bring anything special when I get my car rental in Chiang Rai?
Be sure to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
What's Chiang Rai's minimum age to rent a car?
National's minimum age to rent a car in Chiang Rai is 21. Make sure to check National's policy, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category cars in particular.
Is there a particular vehicle I should get for my trip to Chiang Rai?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Chiang Rai. Compact or economy cars are easier to park and ideal for short commutes. If you are traveling with a bigger group, then a sedan or SUV will have more room for everyone's suitcases and be a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Chiang Rai vacation can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Thailand?
You are required to have insurance before you rent in Thailand. Many major credit card issuers (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) usually provide some coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering large vehicles, like trucks or SUVs. Make sure to find out by calling your credit card company to find out what kind of coverage is offered before you head to Chiang Rai. Additionally, as a United States citizen, you can add on Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my National car rental?
National does require a deposit when you book your rental car. National will block the deposit on your credit once you book your car for your trip. Please note that the deposit will vary greatly depending on the model and make of the rental.
What is the fuel policy on my National car rental?
We suggest a full to full policy. You receive the car topped off. But, if you return the rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium to top it back off. To avoid any added expenses, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to National. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Chiang Rai certainly has its charms, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities here.
Does National offer one-way rentals in Chiang Rai?
National typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it more convenient to drop off your rental car at another location. Be aware there is typically an additional fee when you opt for one-way.
