Fuel Price Guide
Fuel prices vary day to day, and fuel consumption depends on van type and load, but we understand that you’d like some idea of what your petrol bill is likely to be when you book a van.
- For days trips around Chiang Mai city, Doi Suthep, Maerim/Mae Sa Valley, Sankamphaeng, Hang Dong you should budget around 300 to 500 Baht per day in fuel.
- A day trip to Doi Inthanon will use around 600 to 700 Baht of fuel.
- For long road trips around the North of Thailand, budget 800-1,000 Baht per day for fuel and you should be fine.
Below for rough fuel costs for some common routes. The prices are all one-way. So if, for example, you are doing a return trip from Chiang Mai to Chiang Rai then double the figure below. We try to keep these numbers updated (even a little on the high side) so that you can avoid any surprises.
