    For convenience,it's hard to argue with the car rental desk at Ubon airport.
    Maybe not the cheapest in town, but last time I looked they seemed reasonable. It's a family business, so not Avis or Hertz prices-

    Ubon Ratchathani Private Transportation

    Theres another company listed that does older vehicle rentals, so u can compare.

    I have only used Budget or Hertz or what ever at Ubon airport. A bit pricey but booked online and couldn't fault the service.

    I can't speak for Ubon, but in Udon I initially made the mistake of using the desk at the airport. For a decent twin cab pickup it was B1800/day.

    On the subsequent trip I listened to the g/f () and paid B450/day for the same in the local Tambon (with him picking up at the aitport FOC). Hire of driver was B200/day, which I used twice so I could get royally pissed!

    ^ I agree that a local hire is much cheaper, but you need to have someone 'on the ground' to sort it out.

    landline is the wrong number but have left a message on the mobile. Other joint seemed quite expensive (2000 baht a day)

    ^ Alternatively, for around 100K you can buy an old Vios or Hilux, and keep it for future visits.
