We can only buy tickets if you send your request at least 48 hours in advance (if the boat tickets are not sold out yet). In general the boat ticket company start selling the boat ticket one month in advance. If you would like to book your tickets but the office didn’t start selling the tickets, we will note your booking in our calendar and contact you as soon as purchasing a ticket is possible. Please add a copy of your passports to your request; this is a requirement by the boat company. Without a copy of your passport we are not able to buy boat tickets for you. You may write ‘COPY’ on the scan or print of your passport to make sure it can’t be used for other purposes.
We will check your requested dates with the office and inform you about the availability within 24 hours.
If your dates are available we will send you a payment link. For the payment we use the services of Tab. This is a reliable online payment system. It is similar to PayPal, but cheaper and very easy to work with. The bank transaction costs of 2,9% + IDR 15.000 are not included in the price.
Transfer the payment as soon as possible after receiving our payment link.
After we have received your payment we will purchase your tickets as soon as possible (depending on the opening hours of the ticket office). Unfortunately, sometimes it may happen that in the time between you transferring the payment and us going to the office all the tickets will already be sold out. Therefore, we would like to emphasize that after you transfer the payment your booking is not yet guaranteed. Your booking will be guaranteed after we send you the invoice (see picture below) as proof that the ticket has been purchased. In the unfortunate case that all tickets are sold out, we will of course refund 100% of your payment.
