I.D.P needed for car hire?

Hi guys just wondering here, would i need an international driving permit for hiring out a car?sorry for asking but iv tried searching for any relevant information but come up with nothing. I have one for when i went to thailand last year and think it may still be valid if so should i bring it along? Thanks

If you have one, bring it (in addition to your regular DL)... but I've never heard of an international driving permit (IDP) being required.

If you haven't already, I'd strongly suggest you read the following post originally authored by Bellasogna - a frequent poster on these forums and car-renter extraordinaire!
