FAQs on Driving in Phuket, Thailand

What do I have to know before driving in Phuket, Thailand?

Keep the following points in mind while driving your car rental in Phuket.

  • You must always have your driver's license while driving; and if not that then, the international driver's license.
  • If there are passengers accompanying you in your HKT Airport car hire, make sure that you and the passenger sitting in the front are wearing the seat belt, at all times.
  • Do not exceed the speed limits. It is 60 km/hr on the city roads and 90 km/hr for the highways.
  • Never drink and drive; if you are stopped and the driver's blood alcohol level is more than 50 mg. percent, it will be counted as a major offense.
  • Phuket Island is full of curves and hills, especially the area near Patong Beach, so always keep vigil and drive carefully.
  • Keep an eye on the motorcycles! They are notorious for their inability to follow traffic laws. Be careful!
  • Note that in Phuket Town, there are many areas – major beaches and business area – which have one-way roads, so plan your route accordingly.

How is the parking situation in Phuket?

It’s not hard to find parking space in Phuket; therefore it is highly likely that you will be able to find a parking space for your HKT Airport car hire. It is also seen that most hotels offer free parking service for their guests, and if you are able to find a public area, you will be glad to know that most of them allow you to park free of cost (exception: busy area!).


Parking on the roadside?

It is easy to find a parking space for your car in Phuket, except in some busy roads in Phuket Town and Patong Beach, so never park your car on the roadside unless there is a sign which states that ‘you can’. It is so because, if found police may lock your car using chains; in that case, you will have to visit the police station to pay penalty, then only your car will be released.
