nothing flash just a small sedan , suitable for 2, but from a reputable operator who will provide insurance.

From the Patong forum:



Full insurance is known as 1st class insurance. Check carefully if you can take the car off the island, some renters allow it, some don't.

In addition to the above, I've used the following over the past few years:

Airport Car Rent at http://airportcarrent.com/

and A P Car Rent at http://phuketdir.com/apcarrent/

A P Car Rent are cheaper but not as new cars.

Both include 1st Class Insurance and allow rental off the island.

You can pick up on arrival at the Airport and return there on your departure.

Don't forget ypu will need an International Driving Permit obtained in Australia before you arrive.
