All I really want to do is rent a vehicle for my week off but it doesn't seem as easy as it sounds. Europcar has it in their conditions that you must have a Lao licence for a year and an international licence. I have had my Lao licence for less than a year and do not have an international licence. Not sure if they check all this before you take the car but it may not be in your favour if you have an accident! Anyway, now I am considering buying a car and I want to find out the rules surrounding taking a Lao car into Thailand and Taking a Thai car into Laos. Any info on this will be much appreciated!
