Retype the city name to view more offices
Most visitors to this beautiful island arrive by air, to the ever expanding Phuket International Airport [HKT], the second busiest airport in Thailand. Tipoa offer many rental car locations across the island.
You may travel by airport transfer or by taxi to your final destination, but wherever you stay you must visit Patong, the famous beach resort of Phuket.
With its wide variety of activities and nightlife, Patong is not only an ideal place to party and play, but at Jungceylon
you have a wonderful international shopping plaza, containing the Millennium Hotel.
By night the town has a bustling nightlife which includes literally hundreds of restaurants, beer bars, GoGo Bars and of course discos. The nightlife is centred around Soi Bangla (Bangla Road) however there are quiet parts of town. For example only a few kilometres from Patong is the hidden Paradise Beach.
Only a short distance walk from Jungceylon in the heart of Patong and close to the Hard Rock Cafe you will find Tipoa's Car Hire Patong office, the perfect place to rent a car for a few days to discover the island.
We recommend you rent a car whilst in Thailand, as there are many unlicensed and uninsured taxis and private hire companies that patrol constantly the Patong area touting for business. The official red coloured tuk tuk´s are perfect for small distances, but if you wish to travel to Surin, Rawai or Nai Harn beach , for example, Then in the comfort of your rent a car from Tipoa you are secure, safe and have total flexibility on your travel plans.
Tipoa Rental Car normally offer a wide choice of economy cars, trucks, luxury autos, minivans and SUVs to meet nearly every need, at competitive all inclusive rates.
If you need any special equipment, like a child seat, GPS, etc. you can order these online in advance but pay on arrival.
May we remind you that Petrol Stations are not open 24 hrs and many close in the early evening. The only 24 hours stations are near the airport.
We also have locations at or close to the Major hotels in Rawai, Laguna, Surin as well as Phuket International Airport
, which is 34 km from Patong.
As you may have noticed, the length measurement unit used in Thailand is the KM instead of British MILE, although in Thailand they drive on the left side of the road.
