Koh Kood Transfers – Private Car or Minibus, Prices, Booking

UPDATED for 2019-20 Season

koh kood transfers private car minibus

Koh Kood transfers by either private car or private minibus are probably the most convenient way to get to Laem Sok Pier, the departure point for all mainland boats going to Koh Kood.

Collection is easily arranged from the main tourist areas in Bangkok, Suvarnabhumi Airport, Don Mueang Airport, Trat Airport, Pattaya, Ban Phe (Koh Samet), Koh Chang, the Cambodian borders and Cambodian cities.

Travel Time to Laem Sok Pier

From Bangkok, travel time is around 4.5 to 5 hours to Laem Sok with a couple of stops for diesel, snacks, toilet breaks along the way.

Collection time from your hotel is up to you but we recommend early starts at 04.00, 05.00, 06.30, 07.00, 08.00 and 08.30 to make the boat connections at 10.00 Koh Kut Express Speedboat, 10.45 Boonsiri catamaran, 12.30 Koh Kood Princess, 13.00 Koh Kut Express, 14.20 Boonsiri’s 2nd boat of the day and the final daily departure at 15.00, the Koh Kut Express Speedboat once more.

If arriving into Suvarnbhumi Airport (BKK) or Don Mueang Airport (DMK) on an international flight, that flight should land by 08.30 at the latest. You must allow 45 minutes at least to clear Immigration and baggage reclaim. Our driver meets you at Door 3 Level 2 at Suvarnabhumi or Door 5/6 Terminal 1 at Don Mueang. Domestic flights where you can proceed straight to the meeting point have a little more time. The meeting point for domestic arrivals at Don Mueang is Door 9/10 Terminal 2.

For those not in a hurry or arriving too late into Suvarnabhumi Airport or DMK Airport to make the last boat at 15.00, we would suggest door to door Koh Kood transfers into Trat or to Laem Sok Pier.

In Trat, you can stay a night in one of the many guesthouses and then pick up the free shuttle taxi offered by all the boat companies down to the pier on the following morning. This free service simply needs confirming with your guesthouse on arrival, journey time of about 45 minutes to the pier.

There is also one place to stay at Laem Sok Pier itself, Check and Chill.

Of course, all transfers are available in the opposite direction, with the driver meeting you directly off your boat at the pier. For return boats, see the latest timetable here.

Vehicles – Private Car or Minibus

We recommend 2 adults for the private sedan car or 2 adults and child, 3 adults for the Innova style car or 2 adults and 2 small children and 4 to 7 for the minibus, but we tailor each booking according to your needs. All vehicles are fitted with seat belts.

Child Seats

We can supply a free child seat, with an additional one charged at 200bt extra. If using 2 seats, we can use an Innova or Fortuner with one rear facing child seat (Aprica) available for infants. If we use a minibus for 2 child seats as it affords much more room, please note only forward facing child seats are possible as the vehicle has only lap seatbelts.



Payment for private transfers is with an initial deposit via PayPal invoice (with processing charges) and then the balance due paid in THB cash only on the day of travel. You do not need a PayPal account to pay this deposit invoice, it can be paid with any credit card.

If time does not allow for a deposit, then the transfers can sometimes be booked on trust, with the cost of the private transfer to or from Laem Sok Pier paid direct to the driver on completion of your journey. The deposit is our preferred method as it works as a guarantee, both to us and to you.

If you would like to go ahead with a booking, complete the form below here and we will then get back to you to confirm your requirements and the price. Or you can simply use the standard Contact Us form and detail your booking that way. You should receive a reply within 24 hours, but also check your email spam folder, in case our reply gets shunted.

Koh Kood and the Koh Chang Islands are deservedly popular and in peak season, busy, busy, so please do plan ahead and book your Koh Kood transfers in advance. Of course, we can handle last minute requests, but to ensure you are not disappointed, try and give us plenty of warning, the more time the better. Once we have agreed the details and price, we confirm availability and then email you the final arrangements and meeting points as required.

    To and from Cambodia – Koh Kood Transfers by Private Car or Minibus

    For Cambodia, a private transfer can be arranged between Laem Sok Pier and the borders at Aranya Prathet, Had Lek and Ban Pakkad, with prices given below.

    We also offer a door to door transfer by private car or private minibus to and from your hotel in Siem Reap, Sihanoukville, Phnom Penh and Battambang. There is always a change of vehicle at the border.

    We normally only book transfers into Cambodia if you have an evisa, very easy to order from the official Cambodian government site.

    If going to Siem Reap, we use a VIP guide who meets the vehicle at the border, takes you through the whole Immigration process and then on to the Poipet Terminal, where your private vehicle is waiting for the final leg to Siem Reap.

    Coming the other way, you need a 05.30 start from Siem Reap to make the boats at either 14.20 or 15.00 to Koh Kood. There is no need for a helper through Cambodian Immigration but be prepared for a long wait and queue to clear Thai Immigration – an hour to 90 minutes upwards is the norm.

    This international transfer service does require a deposit as we pay the Cambodian drivers in advance. If travelling into Cambodia, payment for the balance (after the deposit has been taken) is at the border before you leave Thailand. If coming out from Cambodia, we ask for payment on arrival at your destination in Thailand.

    Our comprehensive round-up on travel to and from Cambodia is here.

    Please do contact us here for more information or a quotation, giving your full requirements including route, number of people, date of travel, adults and children, hotel names. You can also email at explorekohchang@gmail.com.
