With all there is to do in and around the Chiang Rai area, you'll be wanting to explore more than the block your hotel is on during your trip.

No matter where you end up staying in Chiang Rai, if you wish to get the most out of your time in the city, having your car is a must.
Germany didn't even have a modern network of roads when Martin Sixt started his company. But with forward thinking, like the first worldwide car rental company to let you book via your iPhone, and a priority on providing superior customer service, Sixt has evolved into one of the most celebrated international rental car companies in the world.
What you need to know before you go
How do I get a Chiang Rai Sixt car rental at a great rate?
We try to get you the best price, no matter when you book. But booking your car ahead of time can help you save even more. Be sure to go over the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
What should I bring with me when I get my rental car in Chiang Rai?
Be sure to present your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
What's Chiang Rai's minimum age to rent a car?
Most suppliers in Chiang Rai require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. Take time to review Sixt's policies, as there could be added fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category vehicles especially.
Is there a particular car 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 drives. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a sedan or SUV will have enough room for all of you and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a little luxury on their Chiang Rai trip can choose the premium category for 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 a car from Sixt in Thailand. Many major credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover) generally provide some coverage. However, many of them have restrictions, such as not covering large vehicles, like premium models or some 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. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does Sixt require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
Sixt does require a deposit when you book your rental. Sixt will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Chiang Rai. Please be aware that the deposit will vary greatly based on the make and model of the rental.
Do I have to full up the tank before I take my car back to Sixt?
We recommend a full to full policy. You pick up your Sixt rental topped off. But, if you return your rental with less than the amount that you received it with, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to 3X the amount of current fuel prices to refill it. For a cheaper rate, it is best to fill up your tank before you return the car to Sixt. Stations close to airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Should I get unlimited miles when I drive in Chiang Rai?
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 Chiang Rai Sixt offer one-way car rentals?
Sixt offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to return your vehicle at another location. Be aware there may be an additional fee when you choose one-way.
