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.

My first time on this bus, comfortable seats, and nice to have single seats down the one side, if you're travelling solo. It took 3 1/2 hours to get to the Hua hin station, traffic in Bangkok was rather heavy. The staff from Bell was very helpful in getting you to your final destination, i was in a mini van within 2 minutes and going to my hotel. Will definitely use this service again

Поездка по времени 3 часа 40 минут. Все вовремя. Без опозданий.персонал на автобусной станции очень доброжелательный. Как только подъехала на станцию - сразу дк подошли, уточнили на какой рейс. Выдали билетик с местом, отконвоировали к погрузке чемодан. В салоне прохладно от кондиционера, лучше приготовить с собой тёплую одежду. Или хотя бы полотенце, чтоб накрыться. Очень порадовала наличие туалета в салоне. Особенно если путешествие с детьми. Вполне прилично все выглядит.

The bus trip itself is fine, but the service desk at the airport is terrible! I had already booked my ticket on-line and fortunately arrived a hour early. But I had to queue for nearly 30mins to have my seat confirmed. Why is the service so slow? One reason appears to be that both passengers checking in and new passengers without a ticket are all in the same queue! After finally getting my ticket, I had to rush a small meal at the nearby Magic restaurant, but no time to get a coffee. I also saw many other passengers that had already been through this painful process coming back to the desk to check where they were to wait for the bus because there are no signs at all! What would happen if I turned up with just 10 mins before the bus??? Really disappointed with the service here. It has put me off wanting to do this trip again. :-(

The Bangkok Bell Travel Office was easy to reach. From BTS Station “Udom Silom” it’s nearly 30 minutes to walk. Taxis don’t like to bringing up from there to the Office, because just 40 Bath for this short way. At the Bus Office it was very professional. Get my seats and have to give information about my destination. The bus goes from the office in time and first to BKK and DMK. After boarding further passengers, the bus goes at the highway to Pattaya. The trip was around 3 hours. In Pattaya waits MiniVans to bring us to the Hotels. It was a very good organized trip. The bus has a toilet at board and a stewardes. It was a very good and silent trip.
