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

Koh Kood transfers by either private car or private minibus are 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.

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


Guide prices are here but we do suggest you read the different sections too:-


Collection Times – Bangkok Hotels

Collection time from your hotel is up to you but we co-ordinate with the boat departures as follows:-

  • 04.30 for 10.00 Koh Kut Express Speedboat
  • 05.30 for 10.45 Boonsiri catamaran
  • 06.30 to 07.00 for 12.30 Koh Kood Princess
  • 07.00 to 07.30 for 13.00 Koh Kut Express
  • 08.00 to 08.30 for 14.20 Boonsiri’s 2nd boat of the day
  • 08.30 to 09.00 for the final daily departure at 15.00, the Koh Kut Express Speedboat once more.

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.

Due to the pandemic, boat timetables have been cut back wiith several services cancelled. Always check before making plans.

Collection Times – Bangkok Airports

If arriving into Suvarnbhumi Airport (BKK) on an international flight, your flight needs to land by 08.30 at the latest. Allowing a further 45 minutes at least to clear Immigration and baggage reclaim, we then have the driver on standby from 09.15 onwards. Domestic flights where you can proceed straight to the meeting point have a little more time.

For Don Mueang Airport (DMK) that International flight should land by 08.00 at the latest. Again,domestic flights give you some flexibility.

Meeting Points – Airports

Our driver meets you at Door 3 Level 2 at Suvarnabhumi or Door 5/6 Terminal 1 at Don Mueang. The meeting point for domestic arrivals at Don Mueang is Door 9/10 Terminal 2.


Transfers to Trat

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 40bt per person shuttle taxi offered by all the boat companies down to the pier on the following morning. If required, you need to confirm this service with your guesthouse on arrival. It’s about 45 minutes to the pier.

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


Vehicles – Private Car or Minibus

For our private trnsfer car, we use an SUV style vehicle (Innova, Fortuner or Xpander, Miu-X). This is ideal for up to 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 small children. For larger groups, say 4 to 7 people, we use a Toyota Commuter private minibus.

All vehicles are fitted with seat belts.

Child Seats

We can supply a free child seat, with an additional one charged at 200bt extra. We do have one rear facing child seat (Aprica) available for infants.

If using 2 seats, we can use an SUV but space will be at a premium. 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

Payment for private transfers is with an initial deposit via Thai bank transfer or 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.

We do sometimes book 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.

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

Due to the pandemic, this service is not available . International land borders are closed.

If you are going to or coming from Cambodia, we can arrange a private transfer for you too.

We can either meet you or drop you at the borders of Aranya Prathet (Siem Reap), Had Lek (Phnom Penh, Sihanoukville) and Ban Pakkad (Battambang). Or 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.

Border Guide

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 05.00 or 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 upwards is the norm.

Payment

For this international transfer service, we do 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.
