Ferry tickets may be booked from 3 to 6 months in advance. Meanwhile, bus tickets may be reserved only 1 to 3 months in advance. Please take note that there are slight differences per operator on how early you can book a seat.

Personal details like name, gender, date of birth, mobile number, and e-mail will be asked of you. After filling out the form, make sure to tick all boxes after reading the terms & conditions, and policies. Once again, please make sure all details are correct before proceeding.

PH Bus payment options include credit or debit cards, Paypal, online banking via Dragonpay, Coins.ph, Grabpay, and GCash. Bank payments are via online banking only. Cash payments are currently not accepted. 

You may view your total bill and its breakdown on the right. Proceed with the most convenient option for you and pay instantly for your ticket. Please be advised that each payment method has its own service fee indicated. 

Once you have selected a payment option, you will be redirected to the corresponding payment gateway. There is only a short period of time allotted to complete your transaction, so kindly settle your bill immediately. 

Step 5: Receive Confirmation

An e-mail receipt shall be sent to you as soon as your booking has been paid for. The total fee and its breakdown will be indicated once again. The receipt is NOT the same as your booking confirmation and voucher. Kindly wait for another e-mail that will contain the PDF voucher with your booking details. 

Confirmation may take up to a few days depending on the operator. Should you prefer instant confirmation, you may book the following transportation operators on PH Bus: Isarog Lines, Penafrancia, Pintados, Cherry Bus, Victory Liner, Coda Lines and Legaspi St. Jude Transport Lines.
