KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Vientiane

  • Car rentals in Vientiane, Laos, are a great way to explore everything this capital city and the surrounding area has to offer. There is public transport available in the form of city buses, but these are unreliable and can be uncomfortable and crowded. Vientiane car rentals will allow you to travel comfortably in your own vehicle to all the attractions you want to visit on your own schedule. For example, you can visit the famous Pha That Luang Vientiane Buddhist temple or Patuxay monument.
  • Those flying to Vientiane, Laos, will be landing at Wattay International Airport (VTE). You can pick up a rental car easily directly from here. The car rental offices are located inside the international arrivals area near the baggage claim. You will find agencies like SIXT, Hertz, Europcar, and more in this area. Once you pick up your rental, you can drive to the city center of Vientiane from the airport within about 15 minutes depending on traffic.
  • Driving car rentals in Vientiane can be somewhat difficult to adjust to for Western drivers. Laos drives on the right side of the road, so no issue there, and compared to other major cities around the world, the traffic congestion in Vientiane is fairly low. However, the locals drive in a somewhat chaotic and impatient fashion, so be sure to practice defensive driving.
  • Driving in Vientiane can present challenges that you may not have encountered in other places. For example, you’ll be sharing the road with tuk-tuks and lots of motorbikes, so you will need to drive with caution around these road users. In addition, the roads are in reasonable condition but you will likely still encounter hazards like potholes and such, especially in more rural areas.

  • What’s the speed limit in Vientiane, Laos?

    Speed limits in Vientiane may vary according to the type of road you’re on and where in the city you are. For example, the speed limit on expressways is set to 110 km/h (68 mph). On highways, the speed limit can range from 70 to 90 km/h (43 to 56 mph), and on urban roads, the maximum speed limit is 40 km/h (25 mph). It is essential to follow all posted speed limit signs to avoid trouble with the authorities and ensure safety for all road users.

  • Where are the best places to park in Vientiane?

    Knowing where to park car rentals in Vientiane is essential for a stress-free trip. There is plenty of street parking available, but you need to understand the signs. For example, a blue sign with a vertical white line with a red slash through it means no parking on odd calendar dates, while the same sign with two vertical white lines means no parking on even dates. A curb painted red and white means you may never park there, but a curb painted black and white means you may park there for free at any time. A curb painted yellow and white means you can park there temporarily. You can also find public lots throughout the city at most attractions, and the charge will depend on the location. The Vientiane Railway Station is the best secured public parking in the area, charging about 10,000₭ ($0.51) per hour. Otherwise, many hotels in the area offer free parking to guests.
