Vehicle and passenger ferry linking Sattahip, Prachuap and Songkhla could soon become a reality


Recommended Posts

"This development could mean people in Pattaya would be able to take their cars to places like Hua Hin without the need for the long drive via Bangkok."

I thought the main port in Prachuap was at the town. If so, dont these reporters know that is 100km south of Hua Hin, and Sathahip port is nearly 50 km from Pattaya. Thats another 3 hours travel to add on to the ferry time.
For Pattaya to Hua hin, thats no good for foot passengers. Better to get the bus. Unless they want to go to Prachuap town also.
Useful however for people wanting to go to Bang Saphan or Chumpon (for Kho Tao).
For a car probably not much better than driving round, depends how much the ferry costs.

Depends.  If a rental car, then probably not.  Every policy is different.

Does not depend on anything, as long as it is public transport the car will be insured

Sorry, not true.  Again, check the details.  And if you are relying on the ferry companies insurance here?  Right...

Hertz and Firefly do not permit their vehicles to be taken on the ferry and substantial fees apply where vehicles are returned on a different island.

 

AVIS do not permit their vehicles to be taken on the ferry. Any vehicle travelling on the ferry is not covered by insurance.

 

BUDGET do not permit their vehicles to be taken on the ferry. Any vehicle travelling on the ferry is not covered by insurance.

How many times have they tried this now? Is the previous Pattaya-Hua Hin ferry still running? I don't know anybody who ever used it.

AFAIK not running. Was dead b4 born, as for passengers only and no cars / bikes.
