Cost of renting a luxury car
The cost of renting a luxury car in Thailand depends on the car rental company and the location in the country. The style and size of the car also affect the rental costs. These cars can be rented out either short-term or long-term covering for weekends and a month respectively. To get the best deal, book at least a month in advance, after comparing what different companies are offering. Some rental companies don’t charge for a few additional hours, therefore, clearly understand the terms and conditions of renting. Added features like GPS and baby seats increase daily rates. Different rental companies have a fixed price no matter the time of the year while others have their prices fluctuate depending on the season-high and low times.
Car rental procedure
Signing a car luxury rental contract
A car rental contract is a legally binding document that protects one and the rental company. Before signing, ask what will happen if you lose the car key, what you should expect to do if the car breaks down, and what telephone numbers you could call if the car is stolen or damaged? Read through the contract thoroughly before signing it and be aware that you may be charged extra for returning the rental car late or early, you must return the rental car with a full tank of gas, and there may be a clause in the contract that limits the number of miles that can be covered.
Inspect the rental car
Fully inspect the car together with a member of the rental company before signing the contract. Point out any dents, scratches, or other signs of damage, and make sure the staff notes them. Keep a signed record of this to prevent being charged for this damage when returning the vehicle. Make sure the license plates are current, tires are fully inflated and have tread wear, and the interior is clean and tidy.
In Thailand, major rental luxury car companies have offices in the airport and common tourist areas. For a great taste of money, the Rolls-Royce Black Badge Cullinan is the most expensive SUV in the entire Thai luxury car market but there are also some classy machines available for rental.
