When you first arrive at a foreign airport it is not always clear how to get to your destination safely.
Here I outline a one option to transfer from Bangkok Suvarnanbhumi Airport and link to the other available transport options.
Choose a Bangkok Airport Limousine transfer and be whisked away from Suvarnabhumi Airport in no time.
Convenience: The choice of a Bangkok Airport Limousine transfer is very convenient, as you can purchase your trip whilst waiting for your baggage to arrive on the carousel.
Once you buy your ticket at the desk the porter will whisk your luggage away.
There will be no queuing as the vehicle will be waiting for you out the front of Suvarnabhumi Airport.
Safety: As safe as the driver at the wheel of the car. Royal Thai Police background checks are conducted on the driver and all AOT Limousines are fitted with GPS for tracking purposes. Drivers are also trained in English, route and courtesy.
Cost: The cost is by distance and by the type of car you select, but as a guide a sedan car would cost between 1200-1800 baht depending upon where your hotel is located.
If you choose a BMW or Mercedes limousine or 12-seater van then it will cost a little more to take a limousine from Bangkok Airport.
Pitfalls: When organising a Bangkok Airport limousine transfer there is very little can go wrong, as the risks of a delayed flight, cancelled flight, missing each other or the booking being forgotten are all eliminated.
Just book the Bangkok Airport limousine or van when you arrive and probably the only risk is that they don’t have the vehicle that you want, in which case you would just choose an alternative vehicle.
In my experience they always have plenty of limousines out the front of Suvarnabhumi Airport, so there is no need to pre-book your transfer.
However this facility is available from the AOT website if more information is required.
Directions: AOT Limousine ticket counters are located in the baggage arrival hall and also directly after Customs Control.
You can purchase your ticket whilst waiting for your bags to arrive at the desk in the baggage hall.
Tell them the name of your hotel and prices are looked up on a computer and are not negotiable.
After passing through Customs Control, go to the AOT Limousine counter and hand over your receipt or purchase a ticket.
They will direct someone to carry your bags to the waiting vehicles.
That is all there is to organising a Bangkok Airport Limousine transfer.
