Next week a friend and I (both female) are spending a week in Hua Hin. Through the internet I contacted a car transfer company and enquired about taxi rates from Bangkok Airport (BKK) to our hotel in Hua Hin. We agreed on a price via email.
The odd thing is, they only accept cash upon arrival of the destination. I see alot of websites where you have to prepay when you book the service online.
I am concerned about safety. Are these taxi services legitimate? And are we likely to be ripped off, mugged or kidnapped?? Maybe I am just being paranoid but I want to feel safe considering we are 2 female travellers and like to carry cash on us (versus travellers cheques which are too inconvenient to cash up).
Thanks in advance for your advice.
