We used Boss in October, very efficient, good driver good car.

We paid 2500 baht for 4 adults + luggage in an suv.

We have used Boss around ten times to date for transfers to/from Khao Lak & tours, great cars, good drivers, always on time, and the cheapest. No complaints from us.

His email is cheaperkhaolak1@gmail.com

We used Oriental Escapes.

Have to say that is a long journey. About 2 1/2 hours from memory.

Cheapest is the public bus from Krabi Bus Terminal (Talat Kao) for something like 160 baht per person. Buses are well-maintained and comfortable.

What about if we hired a car, roughly how much would it cost? and can you pick a hire car up at one destination & drop it another? Thanks for all the help so far!
