Booking Ferry Tickets On-line with Barkota

Recommended Posts

Just recently became aware of this  ferry booking website: https://www.barkota.com.

Lots of different shipping companies;  the routes are mainly around the Visayas and Mindanao. Destinations include Bohol, Cebu, Dumaguete, Leyte and Samar

Payments can be made on-line with credit/debit card or Paypal. Also can pay at quite a number of banks and the usual pawn shops.

Website is straight-forward and easy to navigate.  But no senior discounts available.

Hat tip to @Jeepney for telling me about this service.

Needs work but it's a start.  They need to add vehicles to the RORO lines

Well, I used Barkota the first time this morning. Round trip for two Siargao-Surigao. 1600 pesos. Plus 153 peso service fee which is fine with me.

You do have to manually print out the tickets and there's no option to just show the tickets on your phone. Also fine; I don't even have a phone.

One thing I have noticed in the past week is tourists here on Siargao are showing up at the port early to go to the mainland and finding the boats sold out already because everyone's buying online early now.
