Trat Airport pick ups
Trad Airport: Pick ups from Trat Airport are not free, as the airport isn't actually located in or near Trat city, but more towards the Koh Chang ferries. We offer 2 types of pickups from the airport.

For couples: by Toyota Camry: 1300 baht / way / car or for families / lager groups: by air-conditioned private minibus: 1650 baht.
- Shared minibus service from Trat Airport to the Laem Sok pier:
For singles that travel light and don't need much space there is joint / shared minibus service during the high season. Special price tickets for this service need to be paid in full in advance online, whereas the private transfer options only require a deposit. For two or more passengers the private transfer option is the cheaper option.

Bangkok Airport(s) pick ups
Suvarnabhumi Airport. Pick up's from Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport are currently 4300 baht for a Toyota Camry limousine or 4800 baht for a minibus and can be arranged via the same Koh Kood Car transfer website. Pick up from Don Mueang airport is about 200 baht extra.
Genarally speaking: if you want to make it to the island the same day, your flight will have to land at Bangkok Airport before 06:00 during the low season or 09:00 during the high season (speedboat). If you arrive later, we can still offer you a relaxing & comfortable ride from Bangkok Airports to your hotel or guesthouse in Trat city. We recommend the SA hotel, because of it's central location on a quiet little square in the city center.
From Koh Kood to Laem Sok
Unlike with the speedboats, the fast ferry departure is also from the fisherman village on the north side of the island. Please make sure that you are scheduled for a pick up from your resort or the nearest pick up location, 24 hours in advance. Your resort will be able to inform you at what time you will need to be ready and where. Please note that our shuttle cars can not wait for passengers that are late.
