It depends on how much luggage you have and how large the volume of your luggage will.
taxi meter are often on gas and if you have a large amount of luggage you will never enter. Medium size liggage with a bit of luck in three people can use the taxi meter.

Mr T or you CAN get a minibus from the airport, look around for the stalls as you exit (helpfully they sometimes have pictures of cars and minibuses so you can identify them!). Will cost a bit more then MrT but split between 3 of you wont be too bad.

Next trip Aug 31-Sep13, theme: try more freelancers, get dirty! Note to self: TAKE MORE PHOTOS!!!

Another option is Tans taxi http://www.tanstaxi.com/, a bit more expensive then Mr T 1200 baht, she has a couple of cars and drivers now, if you let her know what your requirements i am sure she will be able to help.  I have had a couple of problems with the drivers Mr T uses over the years (including in all fairness many good ones) so happy to pay the extra, for what has been consistent good service.

Try this young lady - Meow (as in cat sound)

She uses a Camry (be sure to mention it in your email)

1000 each way and I tip 100 - but its luxurious and the driving is safe

meowponchai@gmail.com

Never use anyone else now - Mr T and the others a tad unreliable, crappy cars with hair dryer engines and crazy drivers

 

 

 

Meow told me she has an Innova at her disposal - apparently its a 7 seater - so right size for 3 people and cases

 

Price:

 

1300 all in - BKK -PTY

 

1200 all in PTY -BKK

I watched a film once called 3 men and a baby or some such name.

 

3 guys went from the US to the UK for a holiday and rented a car.

Now these guys,,Tom Selleck,Ted Danson and some other dude are all big six foot plus guys,so it amazed me to see that they rented a mini.

Yes you got it, 3 massive dudes in a car not much bigger than a matchbox.

 

Plus luggage....!

Hilarious...!

 

Moral of the story..get the Bellbus.

I used to religiously use Mr T, but the last 3/4 trips he's either been unavailable or been busy and gotten some random dude in a shitbox car to do the job, who then drove like a. Madman. So I now use pattaya limo service, they have nice modern clean cars, and has always been a lady driver, who has driven calmly. Little bit more expensive but IMO well worth it. 1200 pattaya to airport.

Check out pttaxiservice.com . I have used them many times, sometimes needing a minivan on short notice and they have always come thru. Can book online or phone. Competitive pricing and good service.

This is not the first time I'm using tans taxi , been with her a few times ,i'ts 1200 baht to pattaya and 1500 to jomtien (with the car) last time I stayed at residence gardens

i'ts on your way to jomtien ,but not in jomtien and she charged me 1500 baht , I just thought it was a bit mean for a regular customer.

I thought this time 1500 for 3 people (staying on soi baukoa ) with the bigger car Honda CRX was ok. On the plus side she uses safe drivers.

Mr.T is amazingly good price, even if you gave him time that is still cheaper then his nearest competition.

He is not cheaper - there are loads of people all the same price - its just that he has probably more drivers than anyone else and was heavily promoted on the forums

 

Meow has the same prices but its in a Camry - I know who I would prefer to go with...

Used Mr T both ways, September in and October back home.

Both ways it was a people carrier type although only 5 seats due to the gas cylinder.

On time and driven sensibly.

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
