Private Transfer to Koh Chang by Car or Minibus

UPDATED for 2016-17 SEASON

koh-chang-transfer-private-car-taxi-bangkokTransfer by private car or private minibus is perhaps the easiest way of getting to Koh Chang from Bangkok.

Collection is possible from the hotels in all the main downtown Bangkok areas, Suvarnabhumi Airport, Don Mueang Airport, as well as Trat Airport, the departure piers for Koh Kood (Laem Sok) and Koh Mak (Laem Ngop) and from Pattaya and Ban Phe (Koh Samet).

We also offer an international transfer service to and from the Cambodia borders at Aranya Prathet, Had Lek and Ban Pakkad and to and from Siem Reap, Sihanoukville and Phnom Penh.

To cut to the quick, our private transfer prices for all routes are here, but please do take time to read about the transfer service below.

Why Choose a Private Transfer to Koh Chang?

Flying to Trat Airport is the fastest way to get to Koh Chang, but there is only one airline, Bangkok Airways. Without competition, they can pitch their prices far higher than other routes like Krabi and Chiang Mai, so you are looking at around 2,800bt for a single one way ticket. Added to that, you must travel to and from the Airports at each end, meaning the actual figure per person could be nearer 3,500bt per person.

Naturally, buses and minibuses are the cheapest way of getting to the island, but they are also by far the slowest. Share minibuses are always an option and we provide a terrific hotel to hotel service but it is with 10 other people and pick-up times are fixed.

With a private transfer by car or minibus, it’s just you and your friends or family. It’s door to door, we come to your hotel at the time you decide or we wait at the Airport at pre-arranged meeting places with a name sign.

When you leave Koh Chang, we again come to your hotel when you say, so early morning, late afternoon, whatever suits. It’s your call and of course, in either direction, you can stop when you want along the way.

As value for money goes and cost per person with convenience, a private transfer is hard to beat.

Koh Chang Transfer – How Long Does It Take?

Travel time to the ferry piers is around 4 to 4.5 hours from Suvarnabhumi Airport, with collection from central Bangkok hotels adding an extra 45 minutes to an hour, depending on traffic and where you are staying. This would include a service station stop for diesel, where you can also grab a snack, coffee and toilet break.

Once at the pier, the Koh Chang ferries take 40 minutes on average, while time required for final delivery to your hotel on the island is dependent on where you are staying. White Sand Beach is 10 minutes from the ferry piers, Chai Chet and Klong Prao Beach nearer to 20 minutes, Kai Bae Beach 25 minutes, Lonely Beach 30 minutes, Bailan Beach 35 minutes. A transfer to Bang Bao and Bang Bao Beach is about 45 minutes.

At peak times, such as the New Year holidays, the Songkran festival and the May Day long weekend, the Koh Chang ferry piers get very very busy, so you must factor in some queueing. Similarly, when leaving the island, pick-ups from your hotel will also need to be adjusted forward, especially if you are heading to the Bangkok Airports.

Koh Chang Transfer – The Vehicles and Drivers

koh-chang-transfer-minibus-minivan-001 We offer this transfer service using a local pool of drivers co-ordinated by our Thai traffic manager and ourselves, which means we can respond quickly to last minute requests and changes of plan. The drivers are trustworthy, safe and polite. We also work with with a 20 year old Bangkok company, who was one of the first to open the transfer route from Bangkok to Koh Chang and who operate out to other destinations as well.

The private minivans used are Toyota Commuter minibuses, best for 5 to 6 people with luggage but of course able to carry more if needed. In the majority of cases, the private cars used are a Camry style, suitable for 2 adults plus luggage, while we also provide Innova style cars, more spacious and suitable for 3 pax. In very busy periods, we may need to use a minibus if a car is not available on the day. Child seats are available on request.
