There are many drivers recommended by other TA Members and have great reviews in the FAQ box to the right side.

HI

I will second using Boss of cheaper than hotel taxis, a Khao Lak based service

we have used Boss for transfers and tours for 3 years now and he runs a very professional and reliable service, his drivers and vehicles are excellent and his costs are a great price

cost will depend on which hotel and area of Khao Lak you are going to and how many people for the size vehicle you will need?

we use a sedan car for 2 ppl and have traveled both ways to/ from Patong at a cost of 1700bhat one way, and 1000bhat from Phuket airport to Khao Lak (and vise verse) cost also depending on the area you are going to in Khao Lak! If you email Boss he will give you a quote for your requirements

email: cheaper_khaolak@ymail.com

Boss will get back to you very promptly

have fun

cheers

I used Mr Boss's service last time while going from Karon to Khao Lak (1700 baht). I can highly reccommend him. A safe driver with nice cars.

If you find drivers quoting less than Boss please post details so that we can include on Khao Lak forum.
