KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Khon Kaen

  • Khon Kaen is a small city that does not see a lot of tourists. Because of this, there are limited options for public transportation. To enjoy the local atmosphere, markets, lakes, and Buddhist temples, it’s essential to have your own car. Khon Kaen car rentals not only allow you to explore the immediate area but its surroundings as well. There are three national parks in the area, including Phu Wiang National Park, an important archaeological site. Because of its proximity to Laos and Cambodia, you also have the flexibility of visiting these nearby countries with the use of a rental car.
  • Car rentals in Khon Kaen can be arranged at the agencies at the airport or within the city. Khon Kaen Airport (KKC) is a small, domestic airport in central Thailand. If you are arriving at this airport, you can find the rental car counters on the first floor in the arrivals area. There are several agencies downtown as well, and if you rent from one of these companies, you will need to take a taxi or the local bus into the city. If you arrive in Thailand from overseas, Udon Thani (UTH) is the closest international airport. For car rentals at this airport, head to exit 3 of the Meet & Greet arrival hall. Here you will find several different agencies, such as Hertz and Budget.
  • When driving car rentals in Khon Kaen, there are several things to remember for a safe and enjoyable trip. To drive a car in Thailand, you must be 18, and it’s a good idea to have an International Driving Permit (IDP). Remember that traffic flows on the left in Thailand. You’ll often be sharing the road with pedestrians, motorbikes, tuk-tuks, and street vendors. Use caution and adjust your speed to accommodate this. Adhere to all posted speed limits, and be sure to have all required license and insurance documents. Familiarize yourself with Thai traffic laws to ensure a safe and smooth journey.
  • Travelers considering car rentals in Khon Kaen should consider some challenges that they might encounter when driving. First of all, the traffic can be congested and there are often many motorbikes and pedestrians on the road, as well. Navigating this might be challenging for some drivers. In Thailand, the traffic drives on the left-hand side, which is the opposite of what many drivers are used to. The speed limits and distance will always be posted in relation to km, which might be unfamiliar and take some getting used to.
