Driving in Koh Samui is easy, there is a convenient "ring road" that goes around the island to get you anywhere without complications. Paying for taxi Koh Samui becomes an expensive place to roam. Koh Samui taxi prices are expensive and drivers don't use meter so expect to haggle. Renting a scooter is an inexpensive and enjoyable option but it can be dangerous if you are not an experienced driver. We recommend as the safest option to rent a car in Koh Samui.
Taxi Koh Samui- Expensive - lack of freedom
Rent a scooter - Potentially dangerous - not for families - good luck if it rains
Koh Samui car rental - Safer & versatile

FEW WORDS OF ADVICE
Thailand is safe, but take precautions
Try to plan and reserve online to have access to better choices. Waiting to be on site will narrow your options to whatever is available, including car rentals and many other services and activities.
NEVER leave your original passport as a deposit to ANYONE. It is common to leave 5,000 to 10,000 Baht insurance excess as a deposit. Make sure your car hire in Koh Samui has the right level of insurance. Make your dealer is registered as a car rental company in Thailand.
If you chose to rent a scooter, think twice if you are not an experienced driver. Driving in Thailand can be reckless. Thailand is not the place to learn how to ride a motorbike.
