To be honest, I can't imagine moving the car outside Langkawi, although theoretically it is possible. But you will have to take a ferry to get off the island or on the island. Bridge connecting Langkawi with the mainland yet (and is unlikely to be given the 15-kilometer distance). And no problems probably not, just check with the rental car in Langkawi, can I travel outside the island on his cars. Otherwise there may be problems with insurance.

I'm just amazed at the questions sometimes ;) we Have in fact in the article about how to get to Langkawi ( in the beginning written the Island of Langkawi is not connected to the mainland, so to get here by land transport.

Hello. How to get to Langkawi from Pattaya? (not a plane) ...
admin December 22, 2017

There are several variants,but in any case the route you have to be on their own. Here in a nutshell information:
From Pattaya you need to get into Satun (city in the South of Thailand), and from there by ferry or drive to Kuala Kedah or Kuala Perlis in Malaysia already.
I would prefer the first option, Satun, as passed through twice, it was fine. To Satun from Pattaya can be reached with a stopover in Bangkok. Travel from Bangkok to the southern bus station and there change to the bus to Satun. Previously, these buses were a lot, now looked up the schedule, there are very few, maybe just schedule them there. But even then that is quite suitable, it is night, will arrive in Satun in the morning and in the afternoon we will depart on the ferry. Basically about Satun all we've got painted -
The second option is via Kuala Kedah or Kuala Perlis. If by bus, you must first get from Bangkok to hat Yai (, and from there to Kuala Kedah or Kuala Perlis as you prefer, and then onto the ferry. According to this embodiment can be on the train ride.
