One of the best ways to maximize time, effort, and resources when going around Vietnam is by renting a car. Think about it, you can go at your own pace, choose among the must see destinations, and manage your itinerary, and so on.
If you want to find a car rental company in Ho Chi Minh City, there are a number of choices on offer. Before you do so, please consider what kind of driving license you have or might need. You should also think about whether you need a dedicated GPS system or you will just use your phone (if you have a data package) while i the country. Although not a lot of rental companies allow foreigners to drive, you should still be aware of the local driving environment as well as the fines and penalties or risks when driving in Vietnam.
Don't forget to decide on what style of car will be most suitable. Will you only be going around Saigon, or are you taking a road trip around Vietnam? Perhaps you need to rent a car in Saigon and then drop it off in another city? Whatever your needs, check out the best places for car rental in Ho Chi Minh City.
