Although driving here is easy, you must ensure that you follow these guidelines
- In Thailand driving is on the left side of the road, as in the UK, Singapore and numerous other countries.
- A valid International License or Thai Driving License is essential.
- Seat belt and drink driving laws apply and are occasionally enforced.
- Full Comprehensive Insurance is a must. Beware of street-side vendors with signs saying 'With Insurance'. Usually, the level of insurance is very basic and would not cover the car, nor passengers, just third party injuries or damage.
There are many roadside vendors that offer motorbikes for rent, from the zippy 100cc moped type vehicles to the 750cc road race variety. Our advice is to avoid renting bikes under any circumstance.
No motorbike is insurable, regardless of what the vendor tells you, and many holidays have been ruined by an accident on a bike here. If you have an accident you will almost certainly be responsible for all bike repairs (or costly replacements), all medical bills for yourself and any other involved parties – regardless of who was to blame.
