Ferry times selected
The ferry between Mersing and Tioman is subject to tidal ranges, sea state, weather etc. As such, ferry departure times are dynamic. Passengers who have booked their travel dates must subsequently provide their selected ferry times by means of the online form provided as soon as possible, i.e. immediately upon the publication of the ferry schedule. Ferry vessels fill up progressively and chronologically, which means that passengers submitting their ferry time are subject to first come first served. Specifically, once a particular ferry time selected is no longer available, the closest available ferry time 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 date or time selected. NOTE: We're only able to validate and confirm ferry time submissions sent from the same email address as the original ferry ticket booking.
Bookings made before the ferry schedule is known, so-called open tickets, must be completed as soon as the ferry schedule is published. Failure to do so may result in the booking being deferred to a ferry at a later date. NOTE: In the event the number of open ticket bookings exceeds ferry capacity for any given date, seats for that date will be provided on first come first serve basis; any and all bookings for any given date in excess of ferry capacity for that date will be refunded in full. NOTE: We're only able to validate and confirm ferry time submissions sent from the same email address as the original ferry ticket booking.
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 as walk-in
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, Tioman Ferry Tickets 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
All cancellation requests of confirmed bookings are subject to approval by Bluewater Express.
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"), and/or by Tioman Ferry Twitter account (https://twitter.com/Tioman_Ferry) 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, provided they have not yet been redeemed. Tioman Ferry Tickets is not accountable for any costs incurred from this invalid booking.
Email delivery failure
It is the passengers' responsibility to contact Tioman Ferry Tickets in order to be informed of the ferry travel details. Ferry reservation confirmation emails, or any other messages sent by Tioman Ferry Tickets Singapore, 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 email problem, resulting in passengers missing their ferry or ferries booked, will result in this/these particular booking(s) being redeemed without passengers, i.e. forfeited. No refund will be given for these bookings.
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 Tioman Ferry Tickets 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 Tioman Ferry Tickets' tickets are not valid, leading to the customer initiating a PayPal "Non-receipt dispute", Tioman Ferry Tickets 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. Tioman Ferry Tickets 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, Tioman Ferry Tickets 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.
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.
