Current taxi situation @ BKK

Recommended Posts

Hi chaps

 

I'm touching down at BKK on 19th Dec @ 18.50, (just) too late for the bus. :D

 

I read on the forum a few months ago that there had been a 'clean up' of illegal taxi drivers, leaving only the :Admin1:

 

I got the Bell bus on level 1 last time. While waiting & enjoying a smoke outside, I was assaulted by taxi drivers offering their services for 800b.

 

Are they still there?

 

Also some BMs go up to arrivals to get a taxi there. Can you still do this?

 

Will the taxis, in full knowledge that there is no alternate, know that they have you by the balls & charge accordingly? :WhoSaw1:

 

I tried pre-booking Mr T, but no response so far.

 

All the best. :Rant1:

There is another bus going to Jomtien. Similar price as Bell. I never used their service so I don't know if they offer a minibus transfer to your hotel. If not expect the need to hire a taxi.

somewhere in the forum had been links.

 

I also got a taxi at the airport for 900, just by waiting outside and letting the people approach you. First they quote a lot more for their limousine service, but agreed to 900 later.

 

In case you can pre-arrange a transfer that would be the easiest way (and probably the safest as you know your drivers company).

The touts and their cars are GONE - as I discovered to my tragic cost last night. If you're too late for the buses, the only option is now a "taxi-meter" at 1500 baht (or a "limo" at christ knows how much). I spent a good 30 minutes wandering around the various levels and nobody approached me with a negotiable deal, and nor did I see anyone who looked approachable.

 

Booking in advance with Mr T/Too/Dream seems like the best option now. Or booking a flight that gets in before 8:30PM (I'll remember to add B1000 to the cost of any flight that doesn't in future).

Have you read the forum rules?

Sitting here now in this bar for hours,

whilst strange men rent strange flowers,

I'll be picking up your petals in another few hours...

Avoid Mr. Dream... he is requiring prepayment now... F*ck that. There is also some threads about him in a negatives report and I hear he has been booted from this board.

 

Mr. Toom's reliability is reported shaky lately.

 

Mr T ([email protected]) and P T Taxi([email protected]) are each 1000baht. Mr T seemed to be a bit slow checking email but has good reports. PT also has good reports and will email you back quickly.

I'd opt for Mr T every time. The last time I used them was in April this year. I forgot all about booking a taxi before I left the uk. I remembered when I arrived in Dubai for the 2 hour stop over. I emailed them from one of the computers in the lounge just before boarding the plane. I wasnt sure if they'd have enough time and turn up. But they did..
