In Phuket you will have a choice between several car rental categories. According to your need and budget pick the correct model, deals start usually 9 euros / day.
The cosmopolitan island of Phuket sits in the crystalline waters of the Andaman Sea, close to Thailand's west coast. The largest of all Thailand's islands, Phuket is roughly the size of Singapore and is connected to mainland Thailand by a bridge. Rolling hills covered in rainforest, spectacular beaches and upmarket resorts have resulted in Phuket becoming one of Asia's most popular and diverse holiday destinations. The picturesque Chalong Bay is the perfect starting point for exploring nearby islands by boat, and offers a wealth of leisure activities and shopping. As the sun goes down, an authentic slice of Thai culture can be witnessed at the atmospheric night markets of Phuket Town, whilst over in the Patong region, glittering bars and clubs get ready for another night of revelry. Along the northwest coast, the Sirinat National Park is an oasis of lush tropical scenery that opens out onto the secluded beaches of Mai Khao and Nai Thon.
