Book a Grab, Uber, or Lyft Ride in Krabi in 2024?

If you are looking for a way to get around Krabi without renting a motorbike or other vehicle, you can use a couple of methods to get around.

Transportation Options in Krabi

Grab Rides – This service is available in Krabi for tourists and locals in Ao Nang Beach area and Krabi Town. We have used it a couple of times and we like it. Is it always the perfect option? No. Sometimes the drivers call off and you are left without a driver. For early morning pickups like for our Bird Tours by Boat – sometimes the nobody will sign up to pick you up at 6:00 am. Grab is not the most reliable option, but it is one of the cheapest for sure.

Uber – Not available in Krabi at all.

Lyft – Not available in Krabi at all.

Hotel Taxi – Hotels provide transportation for reasonable fees to main areas like from Ao Nang to Krabi Town and to the Krabi Airport, Krabi Bus Terminal, Night Markets, etc. The cost is around the same as a Grab ride.

Motorbike Rental – For around 350 per day on short term use and as little as 1,800 Thai baht per day for a week rental, you can rent a relatively new all-automatic scooter (moped) like the Fino, Mio, GT, Scoopy scooters. These are 110cc to 125cc and are powerful enough to go around 90 kph (55mph).

Vehicle Rental – All kinds of vehicles can be rented in Krabi. Small Toyota Yaris type 4 door vehicles all the way up to 4 door (7-passenger) Toyota Fortuners and full 11 person vans can all be rented easily and for reasonable prices.

Songthaews, Motorbike Taxi, Tuk Tuks, White Local Bus – These are very cheap options most times for short trips, but they go limited places.

There are a couple of Thai people in Krabi town who can help you find a taxi when you need it – even though there are no real yellow-cab taxis in Phuket town unless someone was visiting from another place – usually Bangkok, and booked one to drive the whole way down to Krabi (a 1,000 KM drive).

We typically have tuk-tuks in Ao Nang which can be taken just about anywhere, but their fees can vary widely. There are Song-lor trucks which do a specific route all day, and you can take them, but they are not on-call like an Uber driver would be.
