Ferry ticket dates booked

Ferrytioman.com operates on the basis that ferry dates/times booked may be changed to a later or an earlier date/time if and when requested by the customer, subject to approval by Ferrytioman.com. Prior notice of at least one week must be given. In cases where the passenger misses his/her intended ferry, for example, due to heavy traffic or vehicular break-down, the passenger's ferry ticket remains valid for any next available ferry - provided the next ferry is not yet fully booked. Note: This does not apply to school holidays and public holidays, such as but not limited to, Chinese New Year, Hari Raya, Christmas and Easter. During these holidays (and others), missed ferry connections result in that particular booking being forfeited.

Ferry times selected

Due to the influences of tide, weather and sea state on ferry departure, ferry times that have been selected by passengers may occasionally no longer be available at the moment of ferry departure. As such, ferry times selected are thusly provided on the basis of availability. Specifically, once a particular ferry time selected is no longer available, the next closest available ferry time, either on the same day, or else the next day, will be provided. Given the influences of tide, weather and sea state on ferry departure, no guarantees are made or given that all passengers are provided the exact ferry time selected.

Ferry destinations

A round-trip ferry ticket represents one uninterrupted leg from either Mersing or Tanjung Gemuk to any one final destination in Tioman, and one uninterrupted leg from any one legitimate departure point in Tioman to either Mersing or Tanjung Gemuk. That is, there will be a maximum of one single disembarkation per ferry leg. Once the passenger has disembarked, even if prematurely, i.e. at a ferry stop before the actual ferry stop intended and booked, that particular ferry leg shall be considered redeemed.

Price difference between tickets secured in advance online and those bought at the ferry counter

Online ticket sales are subject to various costs that terminal counter sales are exempt from. Examples of additional costs are: bank transfer fees, currency-holding charges, currency conversion charges, PayPal fees, as well as web portal infrastructure and database maintenance costs. In addition, ferry tickets secured online include a number of added-value services that are not included when tickets are bought at the ferry counter. These added-value services assist our passengers at all stages of the journey to Tioman and are useful for those who prefer to travel with as few inconveniences as possible.

Cancellation/Refund Policy Ferry Tickets
  • A cancellation request must be sent by email, to info@ferrytioman.com and must be sent from the email account that was used for the booking.
  • Cancellation requests for your ferry trip outside the 10-day notice period from your ferry departure date, will be granted a full refund. Please note that a US$5 administration fee per ticket will be levied.
  • Cancellation requests between 10 and 5 days prior to departure are granted at 50% of the value of the total ticket sum. No administration fee will be levied.
  • Cancellation requests within 5 days prior to departure will result in forfeit of the tickets, i.e. no refund will be granted.
  • In cases where the number of tickets booked by the traveler exceeds the number of tickets required, a refund may be granted, subject to the 10-day notice period. NOTE: Any refund in this case will only be carried out after the travel date on the tickets concerned. A US$5 administration fee will be levied per refunded ticket.
  • Cancellation requests as a result of the ferry being canceled due to heavy weather are typically approved. Please note that the request must be received within 7 days of the cancelled ferry date for the cancellation request to be approved. A US$5 administration fee per ticket will be levied. Actual tickets must be in possession of Ferrytioman.com for the refund to be granted.
  • Tickets that have already been collected or have been sent to the traveller by regular post are only refundable when returned to Ferrytioman.com.
  • In round-trip tickets, it is the outbound-departure (Mersing/Tanjung Gemuk to Tioman) date that determines the refund period.
  • Partial ticket refund funds can only be approved for refund requests received after the expiry of the travel dates on the unused ticket(s) in question/completion of the Tioman trip.
Please note that as an alternative to canceling your tickets, you can suspend your tickets for up to six (6) months from the original departure date. In so doing, your tickets remain valid for any departure to Tioman within these six (6) months. This ticket suspension service is free of charge. Please let us know two weeks in advance of your new departure date that you wish to re-activate your tickets. Note: Reactivation of suspended tickets is only possible for dates that are not yet fully booked. Once suspended, tickets are no longer refundable and not eligible for a second suspension. Should ticket price have gone up during the suspension, the difference is payable by the customer.

Fully booked

A ferry ticket booking for (a) date(s) that has/have been declared fully booked by means of the deactivation of the reservation form's calendar date auto-fill (date is unclickable and "greyed out") is invalid and will be reversed as soon as this invalid booking has been established administratively. The tickets for this invalid booking will subsequently be refunded to the buyer in full. Ferrytioman.com is not accountable for any costs incurred from this invalid booking.

Email delivery failure

Ferry reservation confirmation emails, or any other messages sent by Ferrytioman.com, that are consistently not received by the intended recipient due to an incorrectly typed email address, incorrectly set spam filter, full mail box, or any other problem caused by the receiver, will result in that particular booking being canceled without a refund.


Regular luggage is free of charge. However, luggage that's not considered regular, such as golf bags/equipment, surf boards, bicycles, or an unusual number of suitcases per individual passenger, are all subject to excess luggage fee. The final amount of excess luggage fee chargeable is determinable by the ferry cabin crew.

Third Party False Claims

In cases where a Ferrytioman.com customer has been misled by a third party in Mersing into buying new ferry tickets on the basis of the third party's misrepresentation that Ferrytioman.com's tickets are not valid, leading to the customer initiating a PayPal "Non-receipt dispute", Ferrytioman.com will urge the customer, by means of a reply to the dispute in the PayPal Resolution Center, as well as by sending a separate email to the customer, to demand a refund from the third party in question once the customer has returned to Mersing or Tanjung Gemuk from Tioman. If, however, the customer opts to ignore our email and PayPal Resolution Center reply and thence disregards our instructions, instead following through on the Non-receipt dispute, the customer will be deemed to be committing PayPal/credit card fraud willingly and knowingly. Ferrytioman.com will subsequently provide PayPal with all related documents pertaining to the fraud case in question and will request PayPal inform the credit card company concerned, such that the fraud case can be investigated to the fullest possible extent. Additionally, Ferrytioman.com will pursue all legal means available in order to ensure the fraud case is brought to the appropriate authorities in the relevant country or countries.

Tanjung Gemuk

Due to recent changes in Pahang maritime regulations, some Tanjung Gemuk ferry bookings may require changing to Mersing. Tioman Ferry Tickets will inform passengers affected as soon as possible and will amend respective bookings to Mersing accordingly. Mersing ferry departure may be different from the original Tanjung Gemok booking.

Selected time

Please note that passengers having selected a "selected" ferry time this does not by definition mean the ferry will depart by that particular time. Since sailing conditions tend to be variable, the actual ferry time may need to be amended, which at times can be a last-minute amendment.

As such, by reserving your bus transport with the various bus and/or coach and/or ferry companies available on the booking forms within any of the domains owned by Ferrytioman.com, you understand and agree that Ferrytioman.com cannot and will not be held accountable for any negative repercussions, financial or otherwise, resulting from said reservation(s) or cancellation(s) of said reservation(s) by any of the bus or coach or ferry companies, or any other causes.
