Taxi transfer recommendations

Can anyone recommend a reputable taxi transfer service from Phuket airport to Khao Lak, or would it cost the same to just pick up a taxi at the airport rather than pre-book a transfer?

Boss Taxi is well recommended on the Khao Lak forum.

We've used his service a couple of times and were very happy.

Both Boss Cheaper than Hotel Taxis and Mr Off get very good recommendations here. I've used both and they are very reliable. Mr Off is on Facebook at Off Khao Lak or contact via email offbariphone@hotmail.com

I emailed Mr Off and booked our taxi for December, we booked a luxury SUV 1300 bhat each way, he came back to me within an hour of me mailing him.

I have used boss transfers for years. Our last transfer the driver drove like a maniac. We asked him to slow down but he wouldn't. It was very dangerous. Then a few days later our transfer from x10 to JW Marriott the driver was a maniac too. I reported to boss but he didn't seem too fussed. I will never use him again.

We must have had one of the same drivers as you Linda. We booked Boss based on recommendations from this forum for our transfer from the Manathai to the airport in April this year. We’d had a beautiful, relaxing first trip to Khao Lak and ended up very stressed out by the time we arrived at the airport. Ironically, we arrived earlier than we needed to (due to the fast and reckless driving) and then check-in for our flight didn’t open until about 2 hours before our flight instead of the 3 hours our airline had told us.

We won’t be using them again when we return to Khao Lak in April next year.

Must have used Boss about 20 times over the years and never a problem. The only time we don't use him is when transfers are included as part of the deal (usually Scoopon).
