The best way to explore Phuket is by car or motorcycle – find secluded beaches, visit temples or Khao Phra Thaeo National Park, waterfalls and other attractions. This way you can avoid the high taxi rates on the island
You can rent them from us but remember to bring your driving license. Seat belts and helmets are compulsory in Thailand, although many locals do not bother, and do not drink and drive!
Taxis in Phuket are notorious for taking you to any destination other than the one you want – they always know a better hotel, better restaurant, perfect tailors, or just where to buy that bargain gemstone.
But beware! They are only looking for a commission, and rarely take you anywhere better than your own choice.
When you arrive in Phuket you can sidestep all this with our own airport pickup service – fast, reliable, professional and safe – for just 800 Baht (less than 20 Euros at the time of writing). Phuket is a surprisingly big island – depending on traffic, it is around one hour from the airport to Kata beach.

Stay with us for a minimum of 7 nights and we will pick you up at the airport free. Please note, restrictions apply: free airport pickup is available during high and peak seasons only, and is not available for the budget Traveler’s Lodge, or with other special offers.
