Da Nang has some of the best beaches, nightlife, shopping and a bustling business district, which means you won't be bored when you fly into Da Nang International Airport (DAD). Da Nang and Vietnam have well-developed public transport infrastructure, but to avoid the crowds, and travel in comfort and luxury we recommend car hire at Da Nang Airport, from one of the providers based at the airport. For the best variety, use KAYAK to search and compare all the best options for you.
Car hire at Da Nang Airport is fast, easy and efficient. There are five main agencies, all with good international reputations. Vans for six or more people are popular rentals, so if you are travelling in a group, or organising a tour be sure to book these well in advance to avoid problems or disappointments when you arrive. Should you be travelling for business, impress your potential business partners with a premium car, like a Mercedes C-class. Premium cars are readily available in Da Nang.
When you use Da Nang Airport car hire take note that the insurance provided is completely different from what is normally included in a rental. No company provides basic insurance like Third Party or CDW (collision damage waiver protection) included in the booking. Sometimes the CDW, with no excess may be included. It's therefore essential that you add an extra insurance policy. We recommend the premium cover, which includes personal accident protection, glass, tyre and windscreen protection. The road licencing fee is included and drivers from 18 years old can drive the rental cars, without paying a young driver's fee.
Should this be the first time you rent a car, remember these important tips: Car rental in Da Nang is extremely competitive so take advantage of booking early and choose providers that provide the best benefits. Look for a full-to-full or same-to-same fuel policy (so you can avoid the refuelling charge). Cars are rented on a 24h basis, try to pick up, or return your car at the end of the 24h period. An added bonus would be having unlimited mileage, as it is uncommon in Da Nang.
Book your rental car at Da Nang airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
FAQs about renting a car at Da Nang airport
Most of the agencies offering services from the airport only offer a limited mileage policy with each rental (approximately 155 miles per rental). Make sure you find out the exact charges for extra mileage when you arrive to pick up your rental. The companies also typically have a total mileage restriction on the vehicle for the duration of the rental.
Due to laws, insurance coverage and liability, car rental agencies typically restrict you from crossing state or international lines, as well as using ferry services. If you are unsure of whether your itinerary will take you across state borders, ask the car rental desk agent.
Da Nang airport is usually very busy, because it's the third-largest airport in Vietnam, receiving a lot of domestic and international flights. While it can be variable, the busiest times are usually late morning to late afternoon. Try and avoid these times by arriving early in the morning, or later at night.
When you pre-paid for a rental, you need to use the same credit card you used to make the payment, to collect the car. Of course, you also need your driver's licence, an International Driving Permit and a valid ID.
