If you don’t have a regular taxi company or driver, here’s a handy list of Pattaya and taxi companies to help you out. Some of the taxi companies listed below can be booked by telephone or on-line, others can only be booked via the on-line booking form or by email. If your in a hurry it’s best to use a phone number.
Although taxi services are usually punctual and efficient, the drivers can sometimes be hit and miss. What seems like a very nice, pleasant sort of fellow when he arrives at your door, often turns into a different beast altogether when he hits the motorway.
I’ve had both good and bad drivers, many a time it’s just been a relief to arrive and get out the car. But it all changed for me after a taxi experience I never want to repeat. That’s when I decided, if it’s my choice, from now on it’s lady drivers only
And so now, the only taxi company listed on this page which I will personally recommend is Nam’s taxi company. Besides being competitively priced, you might have guessed Nam’s taxi service uses lady drivers.
For short trips, commuting around Pattaya, or to visit tourist attractions in Pattaya, you’re not limited to taxis, there are many convenient and cheap ways to get around Pattaya.

So called ‘Meter Taxis’ can now be found in Pattaya, usually close to busy Pattaya tourist areas and shopping malls. You should treat these as you would when chartering a Baht Bus, there have been many complaint about Meter Taxi drivers in Pattaya who will not turn on their meter. In this case make sure you negotiate a price with the ‘Meter Taxi’ driver, or use the GrabTaxi app instead.
Tipping Taxi Drivers
You can find more information and advice on this link: Tipping in Thailand. Taxi drivers are usually very polite, they won’t linger or hold out their hand for a tip, if you just a timely trip to Pattaya and you feel you were not over charged, a tip of 50 or a 100 baht is adequate.
