Airport pick ups
Trat Airport. Pick ups from Trat Airport are not free, as the airport isn't actually located in or near Trat, but more towards the Koh Chang ferries. We offer 3 types of pickups from the airport.
- For larger families or people that enjoy the warm air: by Song Teaw (half open converted pick truck): 900 baht / way / car. You can request this transfer via the "other requirements" on the booking form.
- For couples or singles that travel light : by Toyota Camry: 1300 baht / way / car or for lager groups: by air-conditioned private minibus: 1650 baht. Please visit the Trat Airport private minibus website to book these transfers
Suvarnabhumi Airport. Pick up's from Bangkok's Suvarnabhumi Airport are currently 4300 baht for a Toyota Camry limousine or 5000 baht for a minibus and can be arranged via the same Koh Kood Car transfer website. Genarally speaking: if you want to make it to the islands the same day, your flight will have to land at Bangkok Airport before 06:00. If you arrive later, we can still offer you a relaxing & comfortable ride 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, departure is also from the main pier on the west 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 cars can not wait for passengers that are late.
