manila to batangas pier -- will i make it in time?

Hi

We're arriving into Manila on an international flight at 6:30pm, and we are trying to catch the overnight ferry to Caticlan which departs Batangas at 9pm.

Any advice on how we can make it to catch the ferry? Eg., taxi/limo driver waiting at airport for us.

And, idea on cost would be great.

Thanks.

Marlon

Sorry but even if Michael Schumacher or Fernando Alonso is driving you will not make it by 9:00pm to Batangas port as you will be traveling during rush hour.

Take a different ferry or fly instead.

Ferry at 2100hrs means you have to check-in latest 2030hrs.

The usual travelling time needed from Manila to Batangas is between 2 and 3 hrs.

You are arriving at the peak hour. I really doubt you can make it on time. Take an earlier flight will be better.

i dont think its possible . make sure you have a days allowance.why not fly instead. There are cheap budget flights from the airport to Caticlan.Try searching budget flights in Cebu Pacific, Zest Air or Tiger. Caticlan airport or Kalibo is your destination
