Bell Travel

Company Information

Bell Travel Service are a premium coach travel company in Thailand, who were established in 1995 and specialise in running routes between Suvarnabhumi airport, Pattaya and Hua Hin. They offer both shared and private transfers and also offer different types of vehicles to use for journeys. Passengers can choose from their fleet of coaches that seat up to 40 people and mini vans which seat up to 10.

Their drivers have received extensive training and Bell Travel take passenger safety very seriously. Drivers are alcohol tested daily and before taking all journeys to prevent drink driving, and are not allowed to use the phone whilst driving except in the case of emergencies in which case a blue tooth headset should be used.

Coach and van drivers are both expected to obey any and all speed limits, to ensure safety as best as possible on Thailand’s dangerous roads. Coaches are also insured although individual private insurance is also highly recommended.

Bell Travel’s coaches are air-conditioned, no smoking vehicles that are maintained well and serviced frequently to keep to high safety standards.

The vans in the fleet are also air-conditioned and offer a good option for any groups looking for private transfers or people who dislike travelling on larger coaches. The cost of the coach journey between Bangkok and Pattaya is around THB400, whilst private transfers depend on the details of your journey.

Routes served by Bell Travel

Shared routes include Suvarnabhumi Airport to Pattaya, Bangkok to Suvarnabhumi Airport, Bangkok to Pattaya, Pattaya to Bangkok and Pattaya to Suvarnabhumi Airport. Whilst private transfers have a greater degree of flexibility and you can choose specific pick up and drop off locations in both Bangkok and Pattaya. Private transfers can also be organised for any time of day and any day of the week, making them a great option for people with anti social timings of aeroplanes etc.

Suvarnabhumi Airport–Pattaya

Probably the most popular route of the company with buses leaving on hourly bases. From Pattaya, Bell Travel provides the earliest bus of the day to Suvarnabhumi which departs at 6am and gets to the airport before 8am – just in time to many morning departures. They also provide complimentary pick up from the hotels in the central Pattaya area which is really helpful as buses depart from the Northern Bus Station located a bit out of the main tourist activity area. Tickets cost THB250.

Suvarnabhumi Airport–Hua Hin

Buses from Suvarnabhumi to Hua Hin run every hour and a half and cost THB320. Travel time is about 4 hours. In Hua Hin buses arrive to New Hua Hin bus station in Phet Kasem Road.

Keep in mind

Passengers should be aware that boarding starts around 15 minutes before departure and although they endeavour to depart on time for all journeys, sometimes delays may take place.

Other useful information includes the fact that two bags that meet the baggage requirements can be included free of charge whilst the website details any additional costs.

If travelling to the airport, do allow some additional time to be on the safe side, though normally 2 hours from Pattaya and 4 hours from Hua Hin to Suvarnabhumi are a standard.

Pros

The positives of travelling with Bell Travel are that it is a relatively low cost and convenient way to travel between Suvarnabhumi airport in Bangkok and Pattaya and Hua Hin.

They also take safety standards seriously and work to ensure that all journeys take place with well trained drivers in well maintained coaches. It’s also great to be able to easily book online and choose from several different routes, whilst the coaches themselves are comfortable and have plenty of legroom.

It’s easy to buy tickets online or to contact the company through their website or by phone, and the routes between the two cities have several stops.

Cons

The downsides are that it is more expensive than some of the other coach services travelling the same route so if you are looking for a budget option this may not be the right choice for you.

You may also end up having to pay more if for any reason you need to make changes to your booking if circumstances change.

Travellers reviews

There have been a couple of reviews that suggest that sometimes service isn’t the friendliest and it can be a little chaotic at the airports when you’re trying to find your coach and get boarded.

Overall though, the vast majority of reviews of Bell Travel are very positive, and most passengers state that they found the experience simple, easy to book, cost effective and a comfortable journey.

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

We booked online the night before. The meeting point at bangkok airport was easy to find, left right on time, the bus it's self was very comfortable (reclining chairs), everyone got a free bottle of water. Online the trip said 4 hours but it only took 3 hours, at hua hin bus stop there was a connecting shuttle bus to our hotels at 100 baht per person. Super easy and convenient, would 100% recommend over a taxi if you are looking to save yourself a bit of money, will definitely be travelling with them again on our way back to Bangkok and in the future.

I had been commuting to HH by car. Found this bus service online and I was very pleased. Safer than vans and I live in South East Bangkok so Suvarnabhumi is convenient. Shuttle service 100 baht extra is a bit expensive though.

Considerably comfortable ride. Bus was spacious and on time. Truly appreciate timeliness. Upon reaching bangkok everyone was transferred to different vans to be sent to their respective accomodations. Only thing is the bus seat is synthetic leather so it I sweated a little despite the air cond. But it was a good ride from Pattaya to Bangkok.

Good afternoon, in general, quality service: departure in time, meeting and seeing off to the bus. However, for a full-fledged high-quality service it is necessary to have a larger banner at the airport about the place of registration for the bus, the minibus driver (from the bus station to the hotel) should be more polite even if he does not understand the customers. Thanks for the rendered service

1. The toilet has a bad and strong smell. 2. I have a question: why can not leave at the half way? Seats are comfortable, staff are friendly.

The driving is a bit crazy - this ticket was supposed to allow you to get into a mini bus that would drop you at your hotel but the closest they would drop me was 25 minutes away. Just pay for the one to the airport if you are staying anywhere near khaosan

Some leg room, but I wouldn’t call it VIP. I love the shuttle service from the bus station to our hotel. Also the straight shot from the bus station to our destination is a plus.

We were taken from the bus terminal to BKK because they only had us booked there. We ended up on a 6pm bus instead of 5:30 but got dropped right outside our hostel and were an hour earlier than expected. Very lovely people!
