Renting a minivan or private taxi 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 having to stress 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 do 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. Note that we are absolutely not sponsored and do this to help you. If you wish to suggest a driver or report a bad experience, please contact us on our Facebook. We know they do their best, but everyone is different and small hiccups can happen, just like anywhere in the world.
