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 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.
