Storm Bacolod Iloilo Trips

Updated Dec 7, 2019

The fastest way to cross Bacolod to Iloilo or vice versa is through fast crafts. There are four major ferries and fastcrafts that travel from Bacolod to Iloilo or from Iloilo to Bacolod. They are WeesamSupercatOceanjet and FastCat (RoRo). 

If you are after savings regardless of time, or if you carry with you a vehicle, it’s better to take the RoRo Vessels which I made in a separate blog.

There are things you don’t want your family to worry about. Things like sudden accidents, critical illness, college tuitions or unexpected departure to the next life. As a licensed financial advisor, I can help you so your kids won’t go hungry when these troublesome times come to you. Contact me.

If you want to send boxes, envelopes, padala or freight to Iloilo or Bacolod just like LBC or JRS, I placed the padala rates below.

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.

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).
