Frequently Asked Questions
Please read these frequently asked questions before you book.
1. What happens when I make a reservation?
Once you complete your Travel Mart Bangkok Co, Ltd. booking form;
Step 1. Pending: Your request is being processed. If there is availability, you will receive a payment link, otherwise we will contact you.
Step 2. Payment: You must complete the payment with Credit Card via our PayPal payment system.

2. What does the price include?
A one-way price will include a single journey: either from your arrival airport to your accommodation, or from your accommodation to your departure airport. A return booking includes both the arrival and departure transfer: from airport to accommodation upon arrival, and from accommodation to airport on departure. Unless stated otherwise, individual taxis will accommodate up to four passengers.
3. Do infants count?
Most resort taxis can carry up to 4 passengers as stated above. For private transfers infants and children do count as one person. On shuttle transfers there will be no charge for children under 3 years of age (providing they sit on an adults lap, and do not occupy the front seats of the vehicle). Children aged three and over will occupy a seat and therefore will be charged for a seat. Laws are different in many countries relating to the use of child seats for infants and children (Please see our safety policy). We strongly recommend parents take their own child seats to ensure adequate safety in foreign countries and to comply with local legislation. As with car rental policy it is also the parents responsibility to fit the seat. Most airlines do not charge for the carriage of child seats and pushchairs. We do not always have the facility locally to provide infant or child seats in our vehicles.
4. How do I collect my transfer upon arrival?
Details of how to collect your transfer upon arrival differ in each resort. Individual instructions will appear on your booking voucher, which is generated automatically and is emailed to you once you complete your booking. If for any reason you cannot find your vehicle upon arrival, then call the number listed on your booking voucher, where our local representatives will be more than happy to assist you.
5. And on Departure?
The booking procedure will automatically calculate your collection time for your departure flight as the journey time plus 2 hours check in time. You have the option to override this and your return taxi will then collect you from your hotel/apartment at the time you have requested. Travel Mart Co., Ltd. recommend that you arrive at the airport a minimum of 90 minutes before departure time. Travel Mart Co., Ltd. accept no responsibility for missed flights due to clients not booking the taxi with enough time to spare.
