Top tips for renting a car at Phuket Airport

  • If you’re looking at car hire at Phuket City Airport, you’ll find that it’s very simple to locate the car hire desks in the airport. Once you’ve gone through passport control and collected your baggage, you’ll find the car hire desks situated in the Public Zone of International Terminal 1, which is on the first floor. There are also car hire desks in Domestic Terminal D on the same floor. All major car hire companies are found here, with their counters conveniently grouped together and visibly signposted.
  • Phuket City Airport car hire is a great way to get around and explore this stunning island, especially if you want to visit the vast coastlines and beautiful beaches. Phuket city has a decent public transportation system, with cheap buses and tuk-tuk taxis dominating the roads. However, from the airport itself, there is only an airport bus that departs every hour for the city centre and costs around 170 THB (3.75 GBP). If you’re looking to get on your way and travel elsewhere, it’s much better to hire a car as you can fit in all the local areas you want to visit without having to rely on bus schedules.
  • Once you’ve finalised the rental agreement and collected your car, you can get your trip underway and start exploring what Phuket has to offer. From Phuket City Airport, you have a few convenient road networks connecting you to the city and other surrounding areas popular with tourists. It’s important to know that the airport is situated approximately 20 miles from Phuket city, which is around a 45min drive via Route 4031 and 402 motorways. Most of Phuket’s famous beaches are based in the south, so driving from the airport in the north is the best option, with places like Pa Tong Beach accessible in under 1h via the coastal roads, Route 4031 and then 4030. Moreover, you can reach Kata and Karon Beach in around the same time, via Route 402 and 4024, respectively.
  • When it comes to car hire at Phuket City Airport, it’s important to make a note of your car hire company’s operating hours. Some are open 24h, whilst others have different hours and close as early as 21:00, so double-check this when booking as it may affect the return of the vehicle. On occasion, you will be asked to confirm a convenient return time when finalising your reservation, so it’s recommended to put the latest hour possible so you can take advantage of the car for the whole day and if it’s outside office hours, the company can include it in their rate. You can find rates (including late return policies) through KAYAK.

They had no capability to cancel. They refer you to a page that doesn't exist. Then they do not respond until after your reservation date, and they tell you that you cannot cancel after the reservation date. Even though you were trying to cancel prior.

Pros:

Hi, I recently used Avis Phuket Airport services from 17/01/2018 to 21/01/2018 and was unfairly charged 3,210THB for having dogs in my vehicle. The reason this was unfairly charged is because I merely transported the dogs from Soi Nai Yang 13 (Avis car pick up location) back to Phuket Airport to arrange a taxi for my maid and dogs to be transported to my hotel. The dogs were kept in their cage at all times and the travel was less then 2km back to the airport. Below are reasons why this is unfairly charged and hence my dispute. 1. The Avis staff members who picked us up from Phuket Airport to Soi Nai Yang 13 in the van saw the dogs and did not inform us dogs are not allowed. If they had informed me at the airport, I would have got my maid and dogs to travel together via taxi. 2. Upon arrival to Soi Nai Yang 13 I was rudely informed that no dogs are allowed. This is no problem as I would arrange a taxi for them. The Avis staff pointed out a taxi driver across the road. I went to the taxi driver and showed him the address of my hotel. The taxi driver could not understand English and after asking another driver he could not work out the location of my hotel. From here I am left with no choice but to transport my maid and my dogs back to Phuket Airport in the Avis rental car to arrange a taxi from Phuket Airport. 3. I had arranged my Avis car through Kayak and the terms and conditions did not say no dogs are allowed. Further on your Avis Global website it states that Avis does not have strict pet policy and to ensure vehicle is returned in clean condition. 4. Lastly, when I had returned the vehicle, the staff mentioned I had dogs in my vehicle. I had informed her that I only drove them to the airport for taxi. Then she said “ok no problem”. Why did she not inform me about the additional charge? In conclusion, I had merely transported my maid and my dogs from Soi Nai Yang 13 back to Phuket Airport to arrange for taxi as I had not been informed prior by the Avis pick up staff at the airport. For less than 2km travel and car returned in clean condition (see pictures), I have been unfairly charged 3,210THB. Please have my money returned. Thank you.

Pros:

I purchased the added insurance from Kayak, so I didnt have to get it from Avis. Avis didnt understand what it was and made up buy it again from directly. Very disappointing experience. I did attempt to call the insurance provided directly, but there phone lines were busy. Waited for 20 mins then hung up.

Cons:

Avis dropped us off at our resort, instead of back at the airport. It was only an extra 5min different, but we appropriated they willingness.

Cons:

The Toyota Vios i was assigned was old (150K km), the front tyres were nearly bald, car was full of scratches, headlamps weren't even bright and filthy! Steering wheel was sticky and ... the list goes on. Shall stop before i lose my lunch. The thugs operating the garage obviously won't be interested to give you a replacement.
