Limousines & Minivans
Limousines and minivans are the comfort choice. Backpackers might want to skip this, but if you’re planning a business trips or family holiday: this could be the perfect fit.
Booking a limo (often upgraded Toyota Camry’s) or a minibus (Toyota Commuter) in advance will spare you all the discomfort of hauling taxi’s and persuading them to use the meter. The driver will be waiting for you wherever you are and his only interest is getting you to your destination in the most comfortable way possible.
Sure, it’s a little bit more expensive than a taxi, but the added comfort is often worth it. For example: Our preferred company (check them out here) comes with complimentary drinking water and many of their vehicles have in-car wifi which you can use free of charge. The minivans (especially recommended for out-of-town travels to Hua Hin or Koh Chang) are equipped with a dvd player, so you can sit back and relax, while cruising to your destination. And all tolls are prepaid, so no need to worry about those.
Especially if you’re new to Thailand and don’t want to lose time over the constant hassle of taxi drivers and Tuk-Tuks, this is your best choice. You’ll pay more than you would in a taxi, but the rates will still be a lot cheaper than what you’re used to at home. An airport -> Bangkok drive is normally around €20 / $22,50 and there’s often round trip discount, if you want to use them again when flying back home.
Perfect for: Business trips and holiday-goers that don’t mind to pay a little extra for a lot of added comfort. Out-of-Town trips. Having a driver with you for a day while sight-seeing.
Don’t use: If you’re on a backpacker budget.
How to book: There are many companies that offer private limousines/minivans. Our preferred one is Limousine.in.th, with Bangkok.Limo as a more affordable backup.
