What is the current rate for a taxi from Swampy to Pattaya? Haven’t done it in years. Used to be a flat rate of 1200 (or you got the wanker that wanted 3000 to rip you off). Thanks ps ... I can’t be assed to do the bus thing any more, just straight out the door the the taxi queue
Please do NOT shoot the messenger I am JUST helping a family friend. I am giving the WHOLE story, nothing hidden. A bit of background. Lady is 30, single mom, has a small hair salon but as with many things here is struggling a bit now - hence my attempt to help. NOT P4P and never has been. Open minded but there are no "extras" involved 555. She has been doing BKK + Airport - Pattaya taxi runs for 4 years. Up to now an average of only 4 per month, usually via friends or repeat customers. I suggested we could get more if I put it in here and she would be very grateful if any guys would give her a try. She is VERY reliable and speaks English well. Knows most hotel locations in Pattaya already. Car is a 6 year old Honda Civic saloon. Not new, but younger than your average Thailand taxi. Has been driving for over 10 years and I can personally vouch that she is a good driver. Has NGV tank so really suited to 1 or 2 fares only, perhaps 3 if luggage is not too large. Car is fully insured but not as a "taxi" - this is the bit I am being upfront about - again its not great but its more than 80% of Thai taxis have. She is happy to go direct to Pattaya from the airport but often does trips into MBK for people first. She says they usually add 200 baht for that but it is not necessary. Fee is 1200 and she uses the tollway which is included in the fee - pretty average from what I gather. As said at the beginning if its not for you, fair enough but I hope she may get some good new clients. She is really looking for a few more "regulars". If anyone would like to give her a try please send me a PM. I am confident that anyone who tries her would report back here favorably. EDIT Tan now has a (simple) website so you can contact direct http://www.tanstaxi.com/
I'm intending on flying Perth to Utapao via KL as it seems to be quicker and a little cheaper than going via either of the Bangkok airports. The taxi from Utapao to Pattaya should be no more than 800THB according to other threads on this forum and just an hour compared to 1300THB from Suvarnabhumi to Pattaya and 2.5 hours. The downside is the return flight UTP-PER incurs a 4.5 hour transfer at KL. Which sites or numbers should I hit up for booking the taxi from UTP to town? I used a lady called Meaw once a few years back but have since lost her number/LINE ID.
