Phuket Airport Taxi Prices
Turn right when exiting the arrival area to find the local red and yellow taxi service.
Taxi price guide, taken at Central Festival, Phuket Town.
How much does it cost to get a taxi to Patong or Karon Beach from the airport.
For long distances such as Patong, Karon or Kata beach areas the metered taxi's have a fixed price of 500 baht.
The taxi's are located outside the airport terminal.
Follow the footpath to the right and at the end of the path you will see a well signed taxi stand.
You can't miss these taxis they are bright red and yellow.
Most of these taxis run on gas and there is not a lot of luggage space in the boot of the car.
If you want to pay more for the luxury of a bit more space, another option for a taxi is to do some haggling with the many taxi drivers waiting for you as soon as you walk out of the arrivals hall.
Their prices always start higher, but expect to pay between 700 to 800 baht or better depending on your bartering skills.
If you do use this option read the tip below.
Tip: Always confirm the price and don't pay until you get to your destination.
Tell the driver to take you to your booked accommodation with no stops along the way.
There have been many stories of taxi drivers in Phuket taking passengers to their preferred hotels so they can pick up a commission.
We hope this helps and have a great holiday in Phuket.
