    been on that ferry many times, and it surely fits into the "lots of traffic, many connections, least hassle" category, up to the point that you dont have to present OR/CR at all. But it's the exception to the rule, I am not aware of any other ferry where it's *that* simple.

    Done that a few times no problem and dont recall any problems with ferry use neither, if there's space you roll on.
    ( that's on the short hops, maybe larger ships and bigger journeys require documentation )

    Hope this helps, the attached pdfs have costs and links for driving Manila to Dumaguete (2019) and Dumaguete to Manila Jan 2020). All links to Fastcat RORO and Google Maps for times. Petrol cost tracking was not finished, got lazy and its only about 800kms of driving and the roads get progressively better the further you get from Manila (Cebu excluded). As mentioned by others, all ferry trips needed Registration (OR and CR) before boarding and all costs in the attached are car two people in Air Con seats.

    Schedule was a bit aggressive on the return to Manila with night driving in Mindoro to get to Calapan for the next morning ferry. The hotel links for Kalibo were excellent, the hotels in Bacalod were below average but functional.

    I have these in excel also if it helps someone for planning, just let me know of needed.

    Even the short 90 minute hop to Siquijor requires a copy of your OR. There may be a few other short runs as indicated by Rye where the same owner runs the operation on both sides of the trip.

    Thank you! That looks like a real interesting trip. And it can be done during lockdown although I assume it requires covid test documentation and 14 day quarantine on both sides.
