Why do people book transfers from Patong

Transfer is a transportation service which meets and brings you exactly where you asked: a Kiwitaxi driver meets you at the airport (as close to the Arrivals as possible), at the hotel reception or at the exactly given address, helps you with your luggage and brings you fast- track to your destination.

You can pre-order inexpensive taxi transfer to the city center or to the airport, comfortable car transfer for the family with children, Economy minivan for a tourist group or a Luxury transfer. The transfer cost from Patong is fixed at the time of pre-order and never rises : either when the driver is waiting for the passenger, when the stop is necessary, or because of traffic jams.

Met on time by our friendly driver. Vehicle was a large 4x4, very spacious and clean and cold water bottles provided. Would definitely use them again.
Clean, modern and spacious car. Good careful driver who had excellent English speaking skills.
Excellent service and my driver was a very happy and true professional
I received the driver’s contact and let him know that our flight was delayed. He was waiting for us when we exited the airport. He was extremely friendly and helpful, giving us water and sweets for the journey. The vehicle was comfortable and the journey was easy. Very satisfied ?
The driver was very polite and arrived on time. It helped that he confirmed my name and showed me the reservation details. The car was clean and the driver drove carefully (without being on his cell phone at all). I used kiwi twice and I would recommend it to visitors in Abu Dhabi and Dubai.

Taxi from Patong Beach

It is not so easy to find a cheap taxi in Patong as drivers like increasing the price. If you decide to go from Patong to the air hub by taxi, be ready to barter with a taxi driver. If an average taxi fare from the air hub to Patong Beach is 550 Baht (17.6 dollars), the return trip price will be much higher, especially if you are going to the air hub late at night when public transport is not available.

Public transport from Patong Beach to Airport

Unfortunately, public transport here is far from ideal. There are no direct buses from this beach to the air hub, so you will need to go by local bus to Surakul Stadium stop, which is close to Phuket Town. It will cost you around 30 Baht (1 dollar). You need to go there and then make a change there to catch the Airport Bus. The price of a whole 2 or even 3-hour trip will be at least 130 Baht (4,20 dollars). Never forget that you can pay only with Thai Baht in public transport.

You can book a minibus (also called minivan) in advance, just go to any tour agency at least one day before departure. It will cost you around 200 Baht (6,40 dollars). There is no space for luggage in minibuses.
