Private Transfer & Minibus Prices and Booking

Prices for transfers by car and minibus to Koh Chang

If the bus is too slow or crowded . . . and flying is too expensive . . then the ideal compromise is a private transfer by car or minibus. We’ve been arranging this for visitors to Koh Chang for over 10 years. So we tend not to screw things up too often.

People are often nervous about taking a transfer as there are some mad drivers here. That’s why we use experienced drivers based here on the island and never ask for any advance payment. You only pay when you arrive safely at your destination.

Transfer prices and booking. 

Below you’ll find details of the transfers that we can arrange.  If your departure point / destination isn’t mentioned , let me know and if it’s possible to do a transfer then I’ll let you know.  We do some transfers to Ayuttaya, Kanachanaburi, Hua Hin, Korat etc but they aren’t as common which is why I haven’t listed prices for these below.

All our transfers are ‘door to door’ i.e. you are met at your hotel, the airport etc   and   dropped off at your destination, you won’t be left at a ferry pier or at a bus station.

The driver will stop for lunch / toilet break / snacks etc on the way if you want him to.   You   decide when you want to stop. (Drinks & meals aren’t included in the transfer price.)

You pay the driver  when you arrive safely at your destination.

** ALL prices listed below include:  Tax, driver, gasoline and, where applicable, expressway tolls and ferry tickets.   There are NO HIDDEN EXTRAS

** NO deposit or advance payment is required for any of the transfers – other than those to/from Cambodia.

** CAR SEATS  for toddlers can be provided.   Maximum 2 seats per vehicle.  There is an additional charge of 200 Baht / seat.

** CHEAPER than flying. One ticket from Bangkok – Trat on Bangkok Airways is now around 3,000 Baht or more one-way.   Plus taxi fare from a hotel in Bangkok to Suvarnabhumi Airport. Plus 500 Baht per person minibus ticket from Trat your your hotel on Koh Chang.

** ROUND TRIP DISCOUNT for all Bangkok – Koh Chang – Bangkok transfers.  The price for the return trip back to Bangkok will be discounted by 500 Baht.

For transfers to Koh Chang from Bangkok Airport, the driver will meet you at the signposted ‘Meeting Point’ next to  ‘Entrance 3’ on the Arrivals Level of the Airport. Just follow the signs to it from the Baggage Claim area.   In case of problems finding the driver you will be given a contact number you can call for help.

Budget airlines use Don Meuang Airport ( the old airport ) and not Suvarnabhumi.  If you have connecting flights, plan on it taking, at the minimum, an hour or so to get between the two airports in a taxi.  There are now two terminals at Don Meuang.  Terminal 1 is for International flights.  Terminal 2 for Domestic flights.  There are signposted meeting points in both terminals.

For transfers from Cambodia border crossings, you will be advised where the driver will wait for you when you make the booking.

These transfers use a Cambodian partner agency as tour vehicles from one country can’t enter the other, so a change of vehicles at the border is required.
