Hiring Mini Van for Krabi & onward to Koh Samui

We are two families traveling in mid June to Krabi. ( Four adults & four kids). We will be staying two nights at Krabi & then proceeding to Koh Samui by road. Staying 3 night at Koh Samui.We are taking a flight to Bangkok by Thai airways

We will have atleast 4 large suitcases

Is it advisable to hire a Mini van for 5 days ( 2 in Krabi & 2 in Koh Samui)?

Ideally we will take the mini van at Krabi Airport on the day of arrival and leave the van at Koh Samui?

What sort of cost for Self drive Mini van vs Mini Van with driver? Pl advise

A mini van with driver from Krabi to Don Sak pier is THB 4000. Than get on the ferry and take another mini van on arrival in Koh Samui to your hotel. I do not advise to rent a car for the entire time and if you still want, check the prices online with the various known rental companies.

thanks for your revert klongmuang.

We primarily thought getting around Krabi/Aonanag & Riley area plus getting around Koh Samui Mini van would be ideal as i have checked online a Minivan for 5 days is costing us around 8000 TB with unlimited km and no return fare.Plus 1000 TB for the transfer through ferry while reaching Koh Samui. Of course we understand we will spend at least another 2000-3000 TB for the fuel.

Please take into account, Railay has no roads and is accessible by boat only. It is very difficult to find a vacant parking lot in Ao Nang, unless you stay in a larger hotel with a parking lot.

The roads on Koh Samui are notoriously congested and parking is also very rare, again unless you stay at a larger hotel with an own parking lot.

thanks. Understand your point on parking. We will be staying at Centera Anda Devi and i understand they have parking. Anyway we will only use the mini van for transfer from Ao nang to Surat Thani Pier.

Cheers
