KUALA LUMPUR: Tickets for the ferry ride between Singapore’s Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal to Desaru Coast Ferry Terminal in Johor will cost S$118 (US$84.81) for a return trip, ferry operator Batam Fast stated in a press release on Thursday (Jun 30).
The one-way tickets, Batam Fast added, would cost S$70.
However, passengers could obtain the return tickets at the special price of S$98 during a promotion period from Jul 7 until Oct 6.
According to Batam Fast, when the ferry services begin operating on Jul 7, there will be one return trip daily from Thursday to Sunday for this three month period.
The ferry from the Tanah Merah terminal will depart at 8.30am Singapore time, while the return trip from Desaru will leave at 5.30pm.
“More trips and dates will be added as the demand increases, especially in anticipation of more travellers during public holidays,” said Batam Fast.
Passengers are permitted up to 10 kg of free hand-carry luggage, or 20 kg for check-in luggage from either terminal.
Excess weight for both hand-carry or checked-in luggage would be charged at S$1, or RM3 per kg, while bicycles or other odd-sized items would be charged S$10, or RM3 per item.
