Looking for a driver from JB airport to Mersing

Hi,

I'm looking for some quotes of private driver hire to get from JB airport to Mersing ferry terminal. I found one email address already on this forum, does anyone have any more addresses or phone numbers for recommended drivers, as I'd love to get a couple of quotes to compare.

We're 5 people, so would need to be a suitably large vehicle.

Thanks

Usually tourists will get on a bus or a coach as some bus companies called it. It cheaper using a bus than hiring a private driver to get from JB airport to Mersing ferry terminal.

But you will face the distance hassle transferring from Senai airport to Larkin Bus Terminal.

Use search words 'transnational bus johor bahru to mersing ferry terminal' in your search.

Alternatively is to get a tour van (usually a Ford Transit).I know a guy who is a tour van driver but I don't have his email or phone number.Sorry.

Here goes some info. I copied directly from bus online ticket.

Bus from Johor Bahru to Mersing is an alternative cheaper option and also back up option for Singapore residents who wish to travel to Mersing and then Tioman Island. Of course, bus from Johor Bahru to Mersing does also serve the locals who travel between the two cities.

Coach Operators, Duration, Fare, Notes

SnS International, Causeway Link and Transnasional are the reliable coach companies providing bus from Johor Bahru to Mersing. The journey duration is about 2 hours.

The bus fare for bus from Johor Bahru to Mersing is in the range of RM 12- RM 13. Because of the much cheaper bus fare in Johor Bahru, some budget backpacker will take the bus from Johor Bahru to Mersing instead of taking bus from Singapore to Mersing.

Another group of travellers choose to take bus from Johor Bahru to Mersing because the ticket for bus from Singapore to Mersing sold out. They have no choice but to take the alternative option from Johor Bahru to Mersing.

The departure point for coaches going to Mersing in Johor Bahru is at Larkin bus terminal. Their arrival point is at Mersing bus terminal, which is 10 minute walking distance from Mersing Jetty. Those who continue the journey to Tioman Island by ferry can easily walk to the jetty to catch the ferry to Tioman Island.

In Larkin bus terminal in Johor Bahru, there are many agents who try to sell you bus ticket which is without clear departure time. The best way to avoid them is to tell them politely that you have purchase Johor Bahru to Mersing bus ticket in advance via online. They will not continue to disturb you. Hence, booking your Johor Bahru to Mersing bus ticket online at BusOnlineTicket.com is not just hassle-free, but also helps you to avoid those agents in Larkin bus terminal politely.

Thanks John. We're trying to avoid having to go to Larkin terminal, and just go straight from the airport. So far I have one quote from a transfer driver, looking for some others to compare.

If you're going to Tioman, you will need to know the times of the ferry because if they are sailing early, you might be wasting your time getting a cab.
