Hire a car from Phuket to Koh Lanta- one way

Hi there,

Please help!

Our plan for our holiday in March is to go from Phuket (where we fly into), to Koh Lanta, then Phi Phi and back to Phuket to fly home...

Can we hire a car in Phuket, drive to Koh Lanta and leave it there??

I know we can take a minibus but I'd love to stop off along the way

Any info would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance

Hi

From experiance one way rental can be very expensive if you hire for anything less than 1 week!

Might be more cost effective to hire a driver for the day to take you to Koh Lanta and then you can do your own thing on the way.

Car & driver. Cheaper, more enjoyable, less stressful.

We plan to hire a driver for the day to go to Koh Lanta from Patong. Anybody know the going rate ? I'm thinking 1500 baht ?

3000 baht Patong to Krabi so I would imagine 4k would be closer to the mark.

Where can we hire a car and driver from? Would the 3-4K baht include any ferries or is that seperate and how much approx are they?
