The Suzuki Caribean 4×4 is the perfect car rental to explore Koh Samui on a budget.
Here are just some of the reasons why you should hire one in Koh Samui:
With space for up to 4 people and space for 4 bags, the Suzuki Caribian is handles rugged terrain with ease and adds to the adventure of exploring a tropical island on your own. Another advantage of having your own vehicle of course is protection against the sun as well as the heat.
With 4×4, renting a Caribian means you will be able to easily drive any terrain Koh Samui can throw at you, which makes venturing off into the jungle & climbing mountains easy! We still recommend being cautious however, as some of the off-road terrain can be challenging and dangerous, leading to narrow trails along steep drops down the mountainside. Over the past few years though, Koh Samui’s roads have vastly improved with most being concrete or tarmac, so the chances you’ll encounter off-road conditions are small unless you seek them out…but its good to know you can handle it when you do!
While our daily and weekly car hire rates are suited to short term visitors to Koh Samui, we also have very competitive monthly rates for those looking to stay for longer periods.
Please read our guide to driving in Koh Samui, which contains some useful information and things to consider when taking to the roads in Koh Samui.
Gasoline: There are several gasoline stations on the main ring road around the island. Typically PTT stations (blue color) are the cheapest. When you enter a gasoline station, make sure you go to the pump that has the right gasoline for your car. Release the gasoline cap on your car, tell the pump attendant how much gasoline in Baht you would like and they will fill up your car for you, take your money and return with your change. Receipts are only issued if requested.
Warning: the level at which drivers obey the rules of the road varies in Thailand. Please be aware of vehicles: speeding, coasting at a very slow speed, turning without indicating or suddenly breaking.
Warning: the roads around Koh Samui are notoriously dangerous. Please allow plenty of breaking distance when wet, dry (sand) and between other vehicles.
Beware of motorbikes either side of your car before turning. They are small, fast and often difficult to see until it is too late.
