The Ultimate Guide: RoRo Bacolod Negros and Iloilo Schedules and Fares 2018

Created: Aug 6, 2018 | Updated: Nov 23, 2018 

RoRo from Bacolod to Iloilo or from Iloilo to Bacolod? Here are the latest and most updated information I took last Sept 14, 2018 from BREDCO, ILOILO or BANAGO ports.

RoRos are ships designed to carry vehicles such as motorcycles, trucks and four wheeled cars. They are also options for passengers. Generally, they are slower or a little bit slower (if Fast Cat) than fast crafts.

Hope this can save you time and prepare you for your trip. I will do my best to make this RoRo (BCD-ILO) post as updated, timely and relevant as possible. 

I am a part-time blogger so I can also raise support for my charity work for the Great Commission Ministries– a nonprofit which I started to support Gospel work here in Negros, Visayas and beyond.

Frequently, I pass by BREDCO Pier Bacolod City because as a life insurance advisor, I sometimes meet at SM for my investment services114 critical illnesses protection til age 100senior citizen services and marketing services like video ads, website, social media and digital marketing strategies. 

Masskara Festival is fast approaching! Why don’t you consider taking the time off and enjoy our city? See schedules and details here.

A generally much faster means to travel out of Bacolod by Ship is by FastCrafts. Other options are: Pulupandan, Negros to Suclaran, Guimaras via PumpBoat; Valladolid, Negros to Sibunag, Guimaras via RoRo; and Victorias City, Negros to Culasi, Ajuy, Iloilo Province.

Benefits of RoRo (Roll-On, Roll-off):
1. If you wanna bring a car, so you can go directly to your destination in another island.
2. Missed the last trip of the fast craft? Worry no more, choose roro!
3. If you wanna transport bulk or truck-load of goods.
