    Bolt

    Why havent any of you expats posted on here about Bolt??

    We sex pats have never heard of it.

    It is an internet taxi service.

    Twice in the last few days I have had to travel from Jomtien to Pattaya Tai to my condo. The first time with 2 big cases and a “carry on” bag.

    On the first occasion the ever so helpful Chris at The Venue suggested “Bolt”. What’s that I said....

    Well within 5 minutes a taxi arrived and for 67 baht took me to Pattaya Tai with all my luggage.

    The second time was tonight at about 2 a.m. and a friendly ladyboy called “bolt” for the same journey.

    Another 67 baht.

    I usually use motor bike taxis and they charge 60 baht for the same distance.

    No comparison when you have luggage or been out for a beer.

    gerefan, no one told you about Bolt! It truly is great service at a cheap price although they do appreciate tips. I have used it when I was in Pattaya and very fast response.

    Re: Bolt

    Sorry, I ought to have been raving about Bolt before. I have been using them for many months now, a very cheap and good service. I used to rent a car every month or so to do my big shopping but don't need to do that at all now. Just being able to get an airconditioned car for the same price I used to pay for a motorbike taxi is really great.

    All locals I know use Bolt hopefully until the tourists come back their rates will remain low.

    Re: Bolt

    It is indeed an excellent, fast service. To use the old advertising slogan, 'I don't know how they do it at the price.' I'm a bit less keen on the follow-up email messages I get, which always end 'Thanks for being amazing' - yuk, yuk, and thrice yuk.

    Re: Bolt

    Bolt is similar to Uber.

    You book the taxi service via an App on your phone.

    The fare is calculated by the App, so there is no chance the driver can rip you off.

    It's generally much cheaper that all other taxis.

    so was Grab when it first started taxi service in Pattaya, but now for many reasons that is no longer the case - but I am not in any way suggesting that this is in any way related to the actions of local authorities or the baht bus and meter taxi operators and drivers
    I’m nervous now when people cough near me, I would be much more comfortable if they would far cough.

    Now that I have managed to download Bolt I tried it for the first time from a Jomtien to Pattaya Tai this evening.

    Stood at the entrance to to JC and the assigned car arrived in 2 minutes and off we went. New car and courteous driver.

    Excellent service and only 60 baht (30 each).

    Amazed. What’s not to like?!
