Rental car Thailand: The streets

Discovering Thailand

Discover Thailand on your own

The streets of Thailand can be divided into five categories. The smallest roads are the Toks, which cannot be driven on with a rented car. It is better to drive a rental car on the Soi, where the car traffic is possible. However, it is not possible to drive with oncoming traffic. The main thoroughfares are the thanons. The quality and width of the roads varies from province to province, so it is important to pay special attention to this when driving a rental car.

The most important transport axes in Thailand are the expressways. These roads are very good to drive with the rental car and are wider than the "Thanons". On some of the expressways a toll has to be paid with the rental car.

The fifth category is motorways. There are currently two motorways in Thailand: from Bangkok to the east (Motorway 7) and a ring road (Motorway 9) around Bangkok. In Bangkok and the surrounding area there are also high roads, so-called express routes, for which a toll has to be paid.
