FastCat RoRo Fares

Please note that Fast Cat functions more like a RoRo (Roll-on Roll-off rather than a Fast Craft. But for me, I think it can be fast cat too because the travel time lasts around 1:30 hours which is almost the same as the other vessels classifed as fast crafts.

FastCraft Porter Rates & Freights

If you are carrying a heavy load, better to get a porter. You’ll save your back and body from further stress so you can devote your time for your next work. Plus, you help the local community and economy. 

Iloilo Fastcraft Terminal Standard Porter Rates

I see that Iloilo City has a more centralized system for Fast Crafts. Their terminal porters have this rates on a tarp so you won’t have to worry if you pay too low or too high. Feel free to add tip if you want. See guides below. 

  • Small (up to 10kg): P33.60
  • Medium (up to 25kg): P44.80

Storm Bacolod Iloilo Trips


The Space between my knees and the frontal seat. I think the most spacious and comfortable economy class of all the fast crafts in BREDCO (Bacolod to Iloilo and Vice Versa) is the SuperCat. I think the same level with Fast Cat in Banago.
The Iloilo Seaport Terminal when I arrived

Upon arriving Iloilo, there’s a Jeepney Lane and a Taxi Lane where you can select your own transportation means of your choice. Please remember that Iloilo has no Grab Car, only Grab Taxi. 

If you are arriving to Bacolod, you can easily grab some taxis, Grab taxi or jeepneys at the BREDCO pier. Please note that Bacolod has BOTH Grab Car and Grab Taxi. For cheaper options, you can also opt Tricycle or Trisikad to SM/ Manokan Country which is around 5 minutes away. I advise not to use Trike or Trisikad feature if you are not familiar with Bacolod City because the arrival point (Father Ferrer Street will be unfamiliar to you as well. Just use Taxi or Jeep).
