Getting from Trat Airport to Koh Chang is possible using either a share minibus or a private transfer.
Trat Airport is around 20km from the mainland pier at Ao Thammachat, which is home to the fast ferry to the island. Boat departures are every 45 minutes or when full, with a duration of 30 to 40 minutes.
All flights to Trat Airport are with Bangkok Airways, booking available on their website.
The share minibus from Trat Airport to Koh Chang is 550bt per person with ferry ticket or 990bt per person round trip, also with ferry ticket included.
This service is available in either direction to and from any resort on the west coast, but it does not go down the east coast beyond Dan Khao, where you find resorts such as Amber Sands and Serenity.
If you are arriving on the final flight of the day, PG307, the share minibus will always make the last ferry. If there are delays to this flight, a special ferry is laid on to ensure you can reach your resort that evening.
When returning from Koh Chang to Trat Airport, collection from your resorts is timed to ensure you make the required check-in times, which are 45 minutes to an hour before flight departure. You will always be able to connect to the first daily flight out, PG302.
Children under 2 are free on the share minibus, 2 and 3 years old are 1/2 price, 4 and over are full price. Child seats are available but charged at full price.

- 2,000bt for an Innova or Fortuner style car for 3 adults or 2 adults with 2 small children, with ferry tickets.
- 2,300bt for a minibus for 4 adults with ferry tickets. Each additional person is 100bt.
