If you’re planning to ship your Car or Motorcycle to Langkawi via RoRo services, you can now do online booking and it is very easy. Recently, I did peninsular Malaysia ride with my motorcycle and shipped my motorcycle in and out of Langkawi. The steps are the same for any other vehicles which I’ll walk you through in this article.
You can check the Langkawi RoRo fare and the ferry schedule at the links below:

First of all, you will need to prepare the following;
- Scanned copies of your Identity card (IC), vehicle registration card (VOC / Grant), Authorisation letter from the vehicle owner and his/her IC (If it is not yours) and save them in a PDF file(s).
- You will need to bring along the vehicle registration card. (Photocopy is accepted)
- Non Malaysian registered vehicle, you will need to get Malaysia Vehicle insurance.
- Driver’s Contact Number
- Details of Passenger (If any)
- Booking can be done as early as 1 month or by 3 days before you enter Langkawi.
- All vehicle needs to be at the holding area 2 hours before ferry departures for custom inspection.
- If you haven’t purchased your return ticket, you will need to inform on your departure dates at the RoRo counter.
Note: I would also suggest that you make photocopies for all the documents.
Once you’ve prepared the necessary documents, please follow the steps below to make online booking.
STEP 1 – Route Selection
Go to Langkawi RoRo Ferry Website and select from where you will departure, dates, vehicle type and number of passenger (if any)
Next, scroll down the screen and click on Check Availability to see if the slot is available on the date(s) that you want to ship over your vehicle and click on Continue to proceed to the next steps.
STEP 2 – Enter Vehicle and Passenger details
In this section, you will need to enter your vehicle’s plate, chasis number, driver and passenger (if any) details. You are also required to upload the scanned documents of your Vehicle registration card (VOC/Grant), Identity card / passport and click on Continue to proceed to the payment gateways.
STEP 3 – Payment
In the payment section, you will need to enter your personal details and click on Continue. You will then be redirected to MOLPay payment gateway which you can use your Malaysian online banking services or pay directly via debit/credit card.
STEP 4 – Confirmation
Once your payment has been made successfully, you will get a booking confirmation screen. You will also get a confirmation via email which you need to print it out and present it while check-in. Your boarding pass / ticket will be issued when you present your booking confirmation at the RoRo check-in counter.
On the day of departure, go to the Kuala Perlis Terminal, head straight to Langkawi Ro-Ro office and it is on the left side if you followed the map below.
Kuala Perlis Ferry Terminal GPS Coordinates: 6.398438, 100.128306
You will need to present them your boarding confirmation and they will issue you with a ticket as per below.
Next, just drive/ride your vehicle into the Ro-Ro ferry and one of the staff on the ship will ask for your ticket, just show it to them and they will guide on your parking slot on the ferry.
Motorcycle parking slot on the Ro-Ro ferry is usually on the sides.
Once the Ro-Ro ferry is loaded, it will start crusing and it is usually on time.
At the upper deck, you can seat comfortably in an Air-conditioned room and there is a small cafeteria where you can buy your drinks, snacks etc.
It willl take approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes for the journey from Kuala Perlis to Langkawi and vice versa. At the destination, you just need to drive off into Langkawi and it is that simple.
