Airport taxi from Phuket airport to khao lak

A word of warning. We were advised that a taxi from Phuket airport to khao lak would cost at most 1500bhat so we didn't bother arranging a transfer with our hotel. Mistake. We were charged 2500bhat! All the taxi companies were charging the same - £50 for an hours journey! Annoyance not helped by our driver who overtook on blind bends etc.

Be warned and avoid the airport taxi mafia at all costs.

Pity you didn't check on this forum beforehand as you would have seen the recommendations for Boss of Cheaper than Hotel Taxis in particular and none for airport taxis for whom passengers to Khao Lak have always been an easy and expensive target.

Thanks for the warning though. That's the first anyone has reported a 2500 baht fare for airport taxis to my knowledge.

Yes wish I'd checked! Got properly done. Just want to make sure no-one else falls into the same trap.
