Ferry tickets

We are travelling to Bintan hopefully on 17 Feb. Can we turn up an hour before the 8pm departure and book tickets at the terminal. Not really in situation to prebook. Do readers see any problems with this at this time of the year.

1. Re: Ferry tickets

i guess you are taking the ferry from Singapore to Bintan?

last ferries are seldom fully booked, you can take a reasonable chance

especially with the 17th February being a Sunday

bookings are closed half-an-hour before departure time

being there an hour before ferry departure time should be safe

... but don't try this for the ferry from Bintan to Singapore on a Sunday night!

I heard its cheaper to buy tickets just prior to boarding rather than per- purchasing. Is this correct or s it safer to book to know you are on the ferry?

Thanks
