In the van was really hot and no space at all. We bought extra ticket for backpack but there were no place for it anyway. So we sat pretty much everything on our laps. Van was pretty much on time but the driver didn’t speak any english.

Please note, that there is absolutely NO space anywhere to store ANY luggage except the tiny place between the seats in each row (read: this place is shared by 3 seats) which might suit something a bit smaller than the dimensions of an allowed hand luggage from planes! Don't even think about the space between the rear seats and the door, because they squeezed in an additional row of seats in the back. Between this and the backside door is about 20-25cm of space. The only chance to get in a backpackers backpack in is to book an other seat (as recommended by the operator) OR (and this comes without any warranty!) you take a ticket which has the lowest rates. The reason why the tickets are that cheap is, that the departure or arrival times are extremly bad, so they try to get the bus full by lower rates. But on weekdays there is a high chance, that this does not work, so there might be space on the free seats. But again: due to the no refund policy this is a hit or miss thing! Driving itself is fast (note the occasional beeping *g*) and there is only one stop at that very well known fuel station. If there is traffic jam, the drivers know which sideroads to take to avoid it, so schedule is kept most of the time. It is possible to get dropped directly at the place of your desire, if it is along the route - use Goggle maps if you don't speak Thai and want to discuss this with the driver. Be aware that your credit card may be declined for payment, because they do a 0B/0$/0€ transaction in advance, which most credit card institutes decline because of security reasons. PayPal is working, but the fees are double (and this is not mentioned anywhere, so you get the surprise when doing the payment).

The instructions you emailed me were very useful thank you; particularly the photo of the booth (No24) that made it really easy. 12Go made this arrangement very easy. The journey to Trat was all good apart from the driver watching videos on his phone whilst driving. Not safe when you are responsible for 11 people

Transport was on time throughout. Staff at bus station were helpful. It was a bit confusing at the ferry terminal but otherwise a smooth journey. It’s also a bit cramped in mini bus but if u have time and want to travel cheaply this is ideal.

How to get from Bangkok to Trat by Van

Van is a convenient option to get from Bangkok to Trat. Van tickets are affordable, vans are generally do a faster job than buses, vans offer a good choice of departures.

Depending on the van type, each vehicle can accommodate between 12 and 15 passengers. Yet an evident drawback of travelling by van is limited space for the luggage. In most cases you will need to keep your bags, backpacks or suitcases under your seat or in the aisle. Thus van is not the best choice if you travel with huge luggage. F this is the case, consider buying a separate ticket for your bags or choose bus instead.

On certain routes, vans are your only choice of transportation as no buses, trains or flights are available between those destinations.

It is a popular question whether it is necessary to book van tickets in advance. Though some routes feature a lot of departures, we still highly recommend booking your seat especially if you are going to take one of the last vans of the day; travelling during weekends, public holidays or busy tourist seasons; are in a group of two or more and want to travel on the same van.

Here is the list of companies that run regular vans between Bangkok and Trat and offer tickets for online booking.

How far is from Bangkok to Trat?

Vans follow the same routes as buses do. Thus the driving distance between Bangkok and Trat will be about X km. Some vans do not take the shortest route to Trat and make detours to pick up and drop off passengers en route. If this is the case, it will result in a longer travel time – you can see it when choosing your ticket.

How long does it take to get from Bangkok to Trat by Van?

Most vans need from 6h 30m to 6h 30m hours to get from Bangkok to Trat Note though that travel time depends greatly on traffic conditions. Traffic can be dense around the rush hour at both your departure point and destination. Weather conditions – e.g. heavy rain – often result in longer travel time, too.

Before booking your van tickets, check how long the trip with each operator takes as some vans follow longer routes to Trat or make detours.

Also, it is important to know that van companies that accept online booking offer scheduled van departures; yet there are also some vans which depart only when full, and in certain cases the waiting period can be long. Thus choosing an operator that runs vans on a set schedule is always a better idea.

How much does it cost to get from Bangkok to Trat by Van?

When using a van, the fare or ticket price for travelling from Bangkok to Trat is pre-computed. This usually includes toll fees, gas and other overheads. But, it is recommended to read the details and ask for clarifications when this is not clear at the onset.

Pre-computed fares for vans can be expensive but unlike buses and trains; you would not need to buy a ticket for each passenger. For a big group of 12 or more people, this translates to huge savings compared to getting multiple taxis.

This makes it a cheap option for travelling when in groups. The van service will also not charge extra for bags and luggage, as long as it fits inside the van.

Best Rated Companies for this Route

Getting a van service for your group can offer extra space, comfort and convenience not found in other transport options. Unlike taxis or buses which have numerous trips per day, a van service is usually scheduled. But some van services do follow a scheduled departure time. Please check our listings for such services.

Having your entire group together for a long trip can add to the enjoyment. This can allow your group to discuss and even sing to your heart's content without fear of bothering others.

Just like taxis, the advantage of travelling by van is that you can ask the driver to stop by stores, supermarkets and other establishments. You can stop anywhere at any time since you are basically renting the van and not just paying for taxi fare. You can use this opportunity to take epic groupie pics at local landmarks and tourist spots.

Vans are especially useful when travelling with large and sensitive equipment like photography setups and large computers. Trunks and compartments might not be a safe holding area for fragile packages. Placing them inside the roomy and well-padded interior of van will make it more secure and safe.
