74 posts in this topic

I need to do a border run from Pattaya next week for my 90 day stamp and wondering what do you guys recommend for a good service to use? As most people I want to go quick, comfortable and pay the least amount LOL

Suggestions?

There are (slightly) cheaper options, but most are in the 2,000 - 2,400 range.

I used to use 5 Star myself. The service was always good (can't say the same for some of the other passengers though).

5 Star also had a discount card (not sure if they still do). Each run adds a stamp to the card. Each stamp represents a discount on the next run (but if you use your card to get a discount, you have to start all over again with a new card). After so many "runs" (5 ?) your 6th run is free (unless you've already used your card to get a discount).

5 Star operates out of the Sportsman (about halfway down soi 13 on the left side, going from #2 road towards Beach road), and feeds you breakfast before the trip, makes a pit-stop along the way, gives you a pre-packaged lunch on the return trip, makes another pit-stop on the return trip.

At the border, you have to clear Thai Immigration Out/In, but on the Cambo side they do all the work. In all fairness, I think most of the visa-run companies provide similar services, though some may not give you breakfast before you go.

Not sure of the name, but they operate from Witherspoons on soi Bhuakow (A1?).

Same price as 5*, same minibus with only 6 big comfy seats and movies, breakfast before departure, and dinner on return.

You can do it for about 2,000 , but for me I would rather pay an extra 400 for a comfy seat and some movies to pass the time, the food is a bonus but not the motivating factor.

As an aside last time I drove it, and then went down to Koh Chang for a few days. This was certainly more interesting, and will probably be my border run of choice in the future.

I would also second the services of 1st Class Visa (B 2500). They operate out of Witherspoons Pub (next to Oasis a-go-go on Soi Bua Khow). I have use them many times (and again this coming Monday) and they have very comfy 6 seat van with "aircraft" style seats (no bench seats). Serve brekie before and full dinner at restaurant on return.

Hi,

As Kerryd said, most of the visa-run companies provide similar services.

So I use one of the cheapper ones : Cambodia Inter, Soi Boakao, 1.800 baht.

Good job, good new vans, good driver and lunch on return, fast but safe.

You don't have to wait for guys taking (slow) breakfast before starting.

You don't need big confy seat except if you are one 120 kg plus guy...

Ive also used Cambodia Inter, and Key Visa for Visa runs, both very good service for a cheaper price..

With Key Visa, you get a Free buffet lunch in the Casino.

With Key visa we get discount because my Dad knows the owner..

But I think Key Visa's usual price is 2,000฿. They have an office on soi LK Metro, and also one at Jomtien but not sure of the exact location of that one. Same bus as Cambodia inter, only difference is you get to have an air conditioned buffet whilst they get your Cambodia visa, so no waiting around in the hot sun at the border and the food is better. They also stop off on the way back at the same place as Nisan does.

However, they set off 30 minutes earlier, and get back around the same time.

Also with Key Visa an ice cold bottle of water awaits you at the van for the return journey, I like Key Visa.

Anyone have a number or can tell me how to catch the Cambodia Inter bus in the am tomorrow (monday )?? Their office is not answering the phone... or someone might have a mobile number for them? Can I just show up at their office in the morning? And what time?

You will have to book it first as their office is not open in the mornings when the bus is leaving. You should go to book it tonight if you need to go tomorrow. You're leaving it a little late. You can call Nisan at 0870069789 if you can't contact him on the office phone.
