Routes Served by Ground Business

From Bangkok

From Bangkok you can hire a private car to drive you and your family or friends to Pattaya on the coast. The journey will take three hours in either direction and can depart at the time of your choosing. Passengers will have the option of a smaller car which has a capacity of four or a minivan which can carry up to nine passengers. The car will cost THB2,300 in either direction whilst the minivan is priced at THB3,400 in total, which is less than THB380 each if there are nine of you making the trip.

When you are in Bangkok, you may fancy escaping the crowds and traffic to visit a tranquil island paradise. From Bangkok, Ground Business offer services to Koh Chang. These tickets are priced at THB 6,500 for either a standard sized car or a minivan with capacity for nine passengers.

Airport transfers

Ground Business also offers an airport transfer service which is priced from THB1,500. This will include an escort through immigration to a waiting car and could be an option for those who are travelling on a tight schedule and may need to arrive somewhere by a certain time, for example, they have a connecting flight that they need to catch from another airport.

Day tours

It is possible to hire chauffeurs for day tours if this is something that you are interested in. For a full day, it will cost THB2,000 to hire a car with a driver for 10 hours. If you will need a driver for longer than this then it will be an additional THB200 per hour after this point. If you feel that you will be undertaking several day trips or you will be travelling long distances and are planning on staying in Thailand for a month, then Ground Business also offers a monthly rate of THB20,000. This rental covers the cost of a car with a driver every weekday between 08.00 and 17.00. Overtime on monthly rentals is priced at THB100 per hour during the week, and at THB150 per hour at the weekend and during public holidays (with a minimum charge of four hour overtime). This may be a worthwhile option for groups looking to travel extensively around Thailand over a longer period of time.

Pros

The biggest advantage with choosing Ground Business is that the vehicles used are of a much higher quality than those used by many travel operators. You will travel in relative luxury here, especially in the private four-person car, when compared to the majority of buses around the country.

The options of chauffeur services are useful, especially for those planning on staying in Thailand for a longer period of time. If you are travelling around as a large group you may find that it is more cost-effective to pay for a chauffeur for an entire month with a nine person minivan than to arrange each trip individually.

Cons

Traffic across Thailand and in Bangkok in particular can be hectic and delays are very common. It is always worth factoring in the possibility of delays before you travel, especially if you are headed to or from one of the capital’s airports.

Keep in mind

The prices quoted for all routes and services include all tolls, fuel and insurance.

Travellers Reviews

The chauffeur services are fairy popular, especially with larger groups travelling around together for a couple of weeks as it can sometimes be more cost-effective and is certainly less hassle than purchasing tickets for all of these routes. These drivers are available throughout the day so you can organize your departure time to suit your schedule, avoiding early starts and rush hour!

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.
