Online Booking to Gain Traction

Online ride-hailing bookings are gaining momentum in the country due to the rising usage of smartphones and the growth in the number of users preferring online channels. Thailand is the epi-center for the tourist spots that millions of tourists visit each.

Such features are tremendous assets for drivers and fleet managers, enabling them to better and more efficiently identify risks and implement timely improvements to their rental services.

Most renters prefer renting cars online during peak seasons. As the ride-hailing market experiences an increase in demand during peak holiday seasons, people tend to book cars, bikes, and scooters in advance. Only a handful of vehicles are booked through rental stores, as the rest get pre-booked during the off-season. Online booking services include booking vehicles via internet sites and mobile applications, among which booking-via-sites is the most common method opted for by renters.

Although, the government provided strict guidelines for online customers to keep the ride-hailing process seamless.

Consumers can only book ride-hailing services online for passenger vehicles with a maximum capacity of 7 passengers. In addition, individuals can only book a single ride at a time using its registration. The government also imposed unusual traffic congestion fees worth TBH 3 (USD 0.087) and TBH 10 (USD 0.29) for small and large vehicles.
