Your 5-star Koh Samui Airport transfer
The stunning island of Koh Samui is the second largest in Thailand and the perfect place for a tropical vacation. The island boasts palm-tree-lined beaches, dense coconut groves, turquoise waters and lush rainforests and is home to some of the most luxurious resorts and spas in Thailand, making it the perfect spot to relax and unwind. The easiest way to reach your hotel on the island is by booking a private taxi from Koh Samui Airport.
When you pre-book your ride with Welcome Pickups, one of our drivers will be waiting for you just outside of the arrivals hall the moment your plane touches down. After a friendly introduction, your driver will walk you to your vehicle whilst helping you with any luggage. Thanks to our automatic flight-alert system, your driver will be informed if your flight is delayed – ensuring that they will be there waiting for you no matter what time you land.
While you enjoy your transfer from Koh Samui Airport, your driver will answer any questions you may have about the island and will give you a few insider tips to help you make the most out of your stay. Let Welcome Pickups take care of all your Koh Samui Airport transfer needs, so you can simply sit back, relax and begin your vacation in style.

Directions for your taxi from Koh Samui Airport to Chaweng
Samui International Airport (USM) is a privately owned transport hub located on the island of Koh Samui. The airport is just 3 km away from the main city and largest resort centre on the island, Chaweng, so taking a Koh Samui Airport transfer shouldn’t take longer than 10 minutes to reach your hotel.
As you begin your transfer from Koh Samui Airport, your driver will exit the airport and head south, before taking a right-hand turn after around 65 m. They will then take a right and a left-hand turn towards Chumchon Chaweng Yai Soi 4. After around 140 m, your driver will take a left onto Chumchon Chaweng Yai Soi 4. You will then see the On The Beach shop on your right-hand side, and your driver will take a sharp right and then left. From there, your driver will use local roads to reach your final destination.
If you’re travelling elsewhere, Welcome frequently operates several popular routes from Samui Airport including Chaweng, Bangrak Pier and Nathon Pier. We also provide transfers from Koh Samui Pier to the airport.

Koh Samui taxi prices from Samui Airport
Airport taxi prices depend on whether you opt for a private transfer or taxi. Local metered taxis aren’t allowed to serve the airport, so aside from private transfer, your only other option is to prepay for your taxi at the SmackOne taxi counter (the official taxi company at Samui Airport). You can then hand your ticket to a taxi driver and be on your way.
*It’s important to note that the airport’s official taxi services don’t have the best reputation. Booking a private transfer in advance will secure a more reliable service.
Nevertheless, the cost of an official Koh Samui taxi at the airport is dependent on set zones;
Zone 1 (Bangrak, Bophut, Chaweng, Choengmon) – €13 (THB 500)
Zone 2 (Chaweng Noi, Maenam) – €21 (THB 800)
Zone 3 (Lamai North, Center, Bantai, Bangpor) – €24 (THB 900)
Zone 4 (Lamai South, Hua Thanon, Nathon) – €30 (THB 1, 140)
Zone 5 (Leam Set, Lipa Noi, Pang Ka, Taling Ngam) – €40 (THB 1, 520)
For a competitive fixed fare and top-notch service, we recommend pre-booking a private transfer with Welcome.
