From Suvarnabhumi airport to the hotel
The airport limousine service counter can be found at "Limousine Service Counter", Level 2, Baggage Claim Hall and Arrival Hall. The fee for the limousine services could be between Baht 800 – 1,800 (approx. US$ 20 - 30), one way into town. The fee including expressway (fee of Baht 40) but connected tollway (fee of Baht 30) – you can pay directly at the toll booth. You can choose not to use the tollway, but it will probably save your time by using it. Use of the limousine is more straightforward and convenient as you pay a set rate from the airport to the destination, and worry free for extra charges even if you are facing congested traffic.
There are taxi meter counters arranging for taxi Meter which can be found right outside the airport Level 1, near Entrances 3, 4, 7 and 8. Using the taximeter is slightly cheaper than the airport limousine. The Taxi Meter charges according to the meter. The meter runs according to distance and time. A trip from the airport to midtown usually costs around Baht 300 – 500 (approx. US$ 15) including tollway and expressway. You have to pay the toll-way (Baht 60) and Expressway (Baht 45) directly at the toll booth. There is an additional charge of Baht 50 for taking the taxi from the airport stand, but this ensures that your journey is recorded and tracked, for your own safety. Do not pick up a taxi on the street or go with tours.
