Need taxi TO airport from Sukhumvit and must hold 3 big dive bags

I've been reviewing everyone's suggestions for transport from the airport but not the opposite way. The doorman at Adelphi Suites is saying they will supply a van, but at 1500 baht! When I asked how much a regular taxi costs, he said 1200 baht which is way higher than the 350 posts have indicated.

We need to leave at around 7 AM tomorrow and would love to know we have a good way to get there without paying almost fivefold the rate. We leave tomorrow, so any quick suggestions appreciated!

Simple - take two cabs, at least one person per cab + luggage and dive bags(can be put on the front seat or you sit up front and the excess bags stored on the rear seat. Should cost you around 350 - 400 baht per cab.

If you're lucky enough there are a few metered taxi van/station wagon type vehicles around. Try to find one or otherwise use option 1 above.

Hanuman's suggestion will be the cheapest.

You can use one of the "limo" services and ask for a van. We've done that when we have lots of luggage. We use AAC, and I think the price for the Mercedes van was about 1200 baht last year so it may have gone up.

Website: www.aaclimousine.com
email them [email protected] and get a 10% discount

I received an email response from them within minutes.

Wow! That was fast. Fodorites really come through in a pinch. I'll try that!

For a B1000, I've had Tong

arrange for a RT van pick up for our family of 5. It's been great to have that as another option.
