Phuket Airport Transfers

The airport is far away from most of the beaches. Many, if not all, hotels offer a pick up service, but check the charges before you order hotel transportation. We've seen hotels charge $40 or more for an airport pickup.

Be very wary of van services offered in the airport. We've heard many reports of these vans stopping off at tour offices on the way to hotels to sell people day trips. Your safest bet is to walk the short distance to the taxi stand in the airport parking lot. These taxis charge according to their meter, plus a 100 Baht (2.66 USD) airport fee. The total for a trip to Patong or Karon will generally be around US$15. If you want to save some hassles at the airport, then consider booking your airport transfer in advance through one of the links below:
