Some useful information about car hire in Asia
In many parts of Asia your regular Drivers License will be accepted, but it is probably a good idea to carry an International Drivers License in any country where you cannot speak the language!
Most Asia car rental companies have a minimum age requirement of 22 for drivers wishing to hire a car.
Many countries that you will be visiting in Asia, (or at least those that were previously colonised by Britain, such as Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore) drive on the Left, and this can be quite tricky to get used to if you are accustomed to driving on the right side of the road.
When you pick up your rental car, be aware that drivers in Asia do not necessarily observe the rules of the road, and you need to drive proactively and make allowances for this!
However, provided you are prepared for the fact that driving is a little different in Asia and you factor in sufficient time to reach your planned destination, a hire car will open the door to an exploration the many wonders of this exotic continent that regular visitors will never get to see.
