Renting a car with driver in Phuket (minivans and taxis for a day)

Phuket drivers: renting a minivan for a day in Phuket

Renting a car with a private driver or a minivan for a day in Phuket is a great way to discover the island without stressing out about directions, parking and even driving safety. Besides, the drivers are very knowledgeable and always try their best to accommodate your schedule and requests. They will plan the best route to cover your ‘Must-See in Phuket‘ list if you have one, or they will discuss with you to suggest a plan based on their long experience of the island and past customers.

The list below is based on dozens of positive feedback from our readers. The list is not extensive and will grow as we find more reliable drivers. We are not sponsored, paid in full for any trip we had, and do this to help you. Please contact us on our Facebook if you wish to suggest a driver or report a bad experience. We know they do their best, but everyone is different and small hiccups can happen, just like anywhere in the world.

How much does a day cost?

To help you compare the cost of each driver, we suggested a typical full-day tour of 8 hours: Departure Patong Beach, Big Buddha, Wat Chalong, Phuket Town, Rawai beach, Promthep Cape, Nai Harn beach, Karon Viewpoint, Kata and Karon Beach.
