Booking your Bangkok Airport transfers

Booking your airport transfers to Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport with hoppa is easy. Simply enter your holiday information in the search bar at the top of this page. You’ll be presented with a selection of transport options that are available for your trip.

You will be able to take your pick between hopping onto a shuttle bus or taking a private vehicle. Both are fantastic options and the type of transport you choose will depend on how you want to travel to your accommodation.  

What are the differences between shuttle buses and private vehicles?

To help you choose your transport, we’ve created a guide to what’s on offer:

Private vehicles

  • There is a scheduled pick-up time, which is listed on your e-ticket
  • Your group sets off from the airport as soon as your driver escorts you to the vehicle
  • You and the rest of your group are the only passengers
  • There are no drop-off points, meaning that you are taken directly to your accommodation

Shuttle buses

  • This is a low-cost way to travel
  • Your group shares the bus journey with other passengers
  • There could be a wait of up to 45 minutes before your group leaves the airport. This is because your fellow shuttle bus passengers may be on flights that arrive into Bangkok after yours
  • There are drop-off points along the way and your accommodation will be one of them

How much will I pay for my Bangkok Airport transfers?

When you search for transport that is available for your dates of travel, you will see prices listed next to both the shuttle bus and private vehicle options. These prices are what you will pay for your preferred transport option.

However, these prices are live valuations, so they are subject to change based on fluctuating resort pricing and currency rates. Therefore, if you start looking for transfers for your Thailand trip and decide to return to your search at a later date, the prices may have changed between your first and second search.   

I’ve chosen my transport

Now you know how you want to travel to your accommodation you will reach the ‘Extras’ page. Here, you will see the ‘Anything we can help with?’ box on this page, which is where you can tell us about what you’ll need for the journey.

Do you need to book a vehicle that can accommodate your motorised wheelchair? Will you be bringing any additional or unusual luggage? Tell us in this box and we can choose the right vehicle for your transfers.   

How much luggage can I bring?

One suitcase and one piece of hand luggage is allowed per person. This applies whether you are travelling by private transport or shuttle bus. If you’re planning on bringing more than this with you, make sure when booking that you choose a vehicle that can accommodate your additional luggage. Also, tell us in the ‘Anything we can help with?’ box so we have all the information we need to arrange your transport.

The e-ticket

When you complete your booking, we’ll send an e-ticket to the email address you provide us with. Read through this carefully before you fly because it lists essential information about your transfers, including pick-up instructions and key numbers to call.

We recommend that you print it off before you fly. This is so that you can show it to your driver as proof of your booking.

Where do I go when I arrive at Bangkok Airport?

When you land in Bangkok, make sure you read through and follow the instructions listed for you in the ‘Find my pick-up’ section of your e-ticket. If you can’t see any information about where you will be collected for your Bangkok Airport transfers, call the number on your e-ticket for an update.

The joining directions can vary based on transport provider and whether you’re travelling by shuttle bus or private vehicle.

I can’t see my driver

If you reach the pick-up point and can’t see your driver, call the emergency number on your e-ticket. We’ll be able to update you.

I’m delayed

If your flight is delayed or you’re waiting for a while for your bags to be brought in from the plane, let us know by calling the number on your e-ticket. Your driver will wait for you for up to 45 minutes after the pick-up time on the e-ticket, but even if your delay falls within this period, give us a call to let us know. Keeping us informed about the hold-up gives us time to begin making alternative arrangements for your transfer.

For delays of over 45 minutes, we’ll send a different driver to you. If you’re delayed for more than three hours, you’ll have to rearrange your Bangkok transfers with us and contact your travel insurer.

What will I find at Bangkok Airport?

Suvarnabhumi Airport is more than a hub for passengers from around the world. With its sweeping circular windows and striking layout, it’s a futuristic gateway to Thailand that was at one time the most Instagrammed place in the world.

As well as being beautifully designed, this is the busiest airport in the country and eleventh busiest in Asia, handling a huge 60 million passengers in 2017. With so many people flying into Bangkok Airport annually, taxi queues can be long, which is why pre-booking your transfers with hoppa is a savvy choice.

This airport offers everything you could need for a comfortable wait for your flight. From 50 eateries serving ice cream and local cuisine, snacks and fast food, through to shops selling clothing by luxury brands and crafts by Thai tribes, there’s something to suit everyone and sate every appetite.

Getting home

If you have booked a return airport transfer to Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport, you will need to know where to meet your driver.

Travelling in a private vehicle? Your driver will arrive at your accommodation at the time listed on your e-ticket. We recommend you be ready 15 minutes before your pick-up time and have your e-ticket with you to show to the driver.

If you’re travelling back by shuttle bus, your pick-up time will be available online the day before your flight home. Aim to be at your pick-up point 10 minutes before your bus arrives and have your e-ticket ready for inspection.

Both shuttle bus passengers and those travelling by private transport will be notified of their pick-up details by text before their flight home, so it’s worth opting to receive SMS messages from us when you book.

Also, whether you’re travelling by bus or private vehicle, you’ll need to call the emergency number on your e-ticket if your driver doesn’t turn up on time.
