All fares must be negotiated before the ride. These taxi riders are easily identified by their special colored jackets identifying the location of their home base. Many have the word ‘taxi’ written in English on this jacket. Do not take a taxi from anyone who is not wearing one of these jackets.
Private rental cars are easily found in every beach areas, and major rental companies operate in most resorts. If renting private vehicles from the side of the road, beware: few of these vehicles have insurance, and this can prove disastrous in the event of an accident.
If you want your own private taxi, look for a tuk tuk, a tiny minitruck converted in the manner of the bigger song-taew above to carry about four (or more) passengers. The tuk-tuk gets its name from the noise its little engine makers. There are fleets of those in all major tourist areas, and they will take you anywhere for a price. The going rate for the relatively short ride between Patong and Phuket can be as much as 450 THBper one way. You can attempt to bargain but don’t expect much movement on their prices and be aware that at night the price of tuk-tuks shoots up. You can also rent one of these tuk-tuks for the day. Expect to pay around 2,000 B. or more. This can be a good way to get about the island if you prefer not to drive yourself.
Airport transfers are simple. The airport is at the far north of the island, some 30 km. from Phuket Town and quite far from Patong Beach and Jungceylon. It is best to use one of the two officials transport companies with booths right inside the arrival lounge. Prices are fixed 700 – 900 THB. for an Airport Limousine or 150 THB. per person for a minibus to get to the major beaches at the south or west of the island.

The Airport Bus is a cheaper alternative as long as you are not in a rush. Ask at the airport for their current departure schedules and pricing.

Car rental is available.
