Car Rental Features
Very often Thais do not insure cars, so in case of any accident you ll pay. Also to rent a car you need an international license. If you do not have a driver's license, you are automatically at fault.
If you plan to go to the mainland, and especially to another country - this point should be separately discussed with the rentalom. Few people allow you to leave the island.
