Koh Lanta Express Transfer For Families
The driver will be waiting for you at the airport so there is no hanging around – as soon as you have collected your luggage and walked into the Arrivals hall your driver will meet you. He will then drive you and your family safely by minivan to a private pier. Then you transfer onto a speedboat which takes you past Lanta Noi to Saladan in Koh Lanta. The speedboat travel eliminates the waiting time at the car ferry crossings which could normally add a lengthy time on to your minivan journey. When you arrive on Koh Lanta a car will be waiting for you to take you and your family to your hotel.
The minivans which pick you up can also be fitted with child’s seats upon request. When in the speedboat life jackets can be provided with smaller life jackets for children, however if the child is an infant or under 2 years old bringing your own floating aid is recommended.
Kids Go Free
The best thing about the Express Transfer is all children under 12 years old enjoy a half price discount and children under 2 can travel free of charge.

Rent A Car At The Airport And Drive To Koh Lanta
If you are thinking about renting a car on Koh Lanta whilst you stay then why not consider hiring a car from Krabi Airport? This allows you and your family to save money on transfers and enjoy the freedom to explore Koh Lanta when you would like. If you have a return flight then you can simply drop the car off again at the same airport, or opt on the booking form to travel and take the car to another location.
With renting these cars you also get the offer of insurance. If you hire on Koh Lanta only a passport is required as security and if you have an accident you may not be covered on your own insurance, so with your family also to consider this becomes an important decision.
