Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Phuket City car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Phuket City.
Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Phuket City car rental.

Phuket City’s streets are, for the most part, large and well maintained. Drivers should have no issues driving all sorts of vehicles, from SUVs and trucks to sedans and compacts. If you plan on exploring the countryside, it may even be advantageous to have a larger vehicle. In the city, however, some of the streets can get narrower, so larger cars may have to stop at times to let other cars pass. Large cars are popular in Thailand, though, so drivers shouldn’t have any problems.
