For a while in Pattaya I didn’t have a car so would rent when we wanted to go somewhere or needed to move stuff. I still rent when I need to move stuff.
My go to rental place is Thai Rent a Car. Reasonable, online booking and never have had trouble. Sometimes they just don’t have a car available. They have a center at the Outlet Mall on Thepprasit Road and they also allow you to pick up and drop off at the Bangkok Airport – the real one. Not the downtown one.
Used this place one time. It is also reasonable, decent selection and nice peeps but every time I try to book now they never have a car. So I stopped even trying to rent one here.
This is a new one I am trying. My parents are coming to town and we need a bigger car for a few weeks. I did the booking via email and will let you all know how it goes.
