Rent a  car in Vietnam is quite simple. To do this, it is enough to use a special online unit for searching agencies that offer rental services. This option is much cheaper because you can compare prices for a wide range of offers and find the best car. Unlike local companies, which greatly inflated prices, Internet services can significantly save money. This is an important aspect, since traveling to such an exotic country is already expensive.

Cost The

The minimum cost of a rental car without fuel is about 500 thousand dongs per day (depending on the city and class of car). There is no limit on mileage, therefore only gasoline is included in the number of expenses during use, prices for which are comparable to world prices. In addition, many agencies take insurance premiums ranging from 50 to 100% of the contract price. Payment is usually made using a bank card.

For comparison, it is worth noting that in the Vietnamese agencies do not take a deposit for a rental car, but very carefully inspect the car for damage upon return. In any case, it is important to carefully read the contract. This will save unnecessary problems and questions.


Many car rental companies in Vietnam offer pre-booking services. After choosing the car and date, you must send a questionnaire filled out in Latin. Confirmation of the reservation must be accompanied by a voucher, which should be printed and taken with you on the trip. It is presented when signing the contract with the agency. In most cases, the reserved car can be picked up directly from the airport.

What else to pay attention

To rent a car, you will need a passport and international law. A tourist who wants to rent a car can also get a temporary driving license. It is issued to those who have a residence permit or a visa valid from 3 months.

At registration, which takes about 5 days, you will need a valid driver’s license. State duty will be 50 thousand dongs. In case there is no driver’s license, you can rent a car with a driver. Although at the same time the cost of the service greatly exceeds the self-rental.

What to see in Vietnam by car?

Stopping in Nha Trang, you need to be prepared for the fact that the traffic here is extreme. It will take a little time to get used to. By car, it is worth driving to the Khong Chong Stone Garden, which is located a few km from the city center. Another point demanded among tourists is the Cham Towers Po Nagar. Entrance to these and many other attractions are paid, but the amounts are mostly symbolic.
