Hire Car

Hi

Does anyone have any experience of hiring a car in Phitsanulok to drop it back in Nan?

I am fairly sure I can hire one in Phitsanulok, but have not been able to find one that can be dropped back in Nan.

Any help gladly accepted.

The other option is to get a driver to take us up to Nan and hire a car there for some sightseeing.

cheers

I see that Budget and Avis are listed as having outlets in Phitsanulok airport.

However, drop-off in Nan could be your bigger challenge. Both Budget and Avis have agencies outlets in Chiang Mai - but on quick glance I can't see any location closer to Nan than Chiang Mai.

I checked Nok Air's info about airports. Though they note that there are car rental facilities in Phitsanulok and Chiang Mai, they make no such mention about Nan.

A couple of options:

1. Consider return car rentals from Phitsanulok, Chiang Mai or Chiang Rai - visiting Nan and returning the car to your pickup location, or another as you might arrange in advance. You can get to any of those three places by air or road, and to Phitsanulok and Chiang Mai also by train.

2. As you say, look for a car and driver in Nan (perhaps by contacting the TAT office - the legit one rather than a travel agent with "TAT" emblazoned outside (not so likely in Nan as in some other places).

Are you set on the idea of going to Nan by car? One can go by road or rail to Den Chai, then by bus to Nan. Or one may fly to/from Nan (from/to Bangkok, Chiang Mai, or Chiang Mai).
