Never leave your passport as a deposit when hiring transport but by all means leave a photocopy. Thai law implicitly states that you must have your passport with you.

Do not forget any personal belongings in the vehicle because it will be almost impossible to get the item back.
In case you do not hire a private taxi, take the first in line taxi from the rank since it has been waiting in the rank the longest.
