I see a whole lot of people seeking validation for being unable to follow the simple advice to "stay at home". Is it a comprehension thing or is it being selfish?

Not having a comprehension issue, but trying to garner some facts so that I can force Air Asia into creating a credit on my account for the flights scheduled in 2 weeks.  If there is a quarantine it would assist me with them, but as of now they still have the flights scheduled and will not allow a cancelation of the flight. Yes, I am staying put....

 

I was having a pop at the folk who, after reading about the German guy who drove up from Pattaya to Bangkok and caught a plane to Chiang Mai, thinks just because nobody asked him, it must be OK. The PM's order banning all but essential inter-provincial travel to and from Chonburi, including Pattaya, Samut Sakhon, Trat, Rayong and Chanthaburi had been issued and already in the Royal Gazette last Thursday. Also last Friday they announced four new cases in Chiang Mai. I don't think anyone in their right mind needs to be thinking about taking a break anywhere else but at home right now. As one who unsuccessfully ran the gauntlet of Vietnam's and then Thailand's border closings and visa changes last March, it's not worth the risk of getting stuck where you DO NOT want to be.

 

Good luck with your arm-wrestle with AirAsia though. I am not having much luck recalling good news stories from last year when they started closing routes on people with bookings. They set a new standard as an LCC and I have called it HTM for 'hand to mouth'. I don't think they're big on other people's credit.

I'm travelling between 2 provinces ( not red zones ) tomorrow and then back on Thursday, it's not essential but something i would like to do and consider the risk very low, i will not be going anywhere with big crowds and i will not be meeting anyone who i don't know where they've been.

 

While i agree with some of your comments, do you expect the whole world to stop in a country where (reported) cases are a very small minority?

does anyone know how rental car companies are operating during this time? I am interested in going from bangkok and dropping the car off in chiang mai. This seems like the safest and smoothest option.

I would think they will rent you a car.

However, are you staying in BKK for any time prior to your trip?

If so, you are coming from a red zone province and will need to minimum quarantine at your residence for 14 days.

yes. seems like too much cost after researching with the additional 5000 baht one way rental charge. hopefully flying domestically remains mostly hassle free.
