You can also take your own food onboard the Batam Bintan ferry, and it is also allowed to take food and any other things you may need, for your journey, between the two Islands, with no restrictions. There are some restrictions on the type of cars that can go across, for example pickups are not allowed, for some reason, but most cars and motorbikes are allowed. ID will need to be shown when traveling across, so the authorities know that you intend on bringing the vehicle back again, and are not trying to smuggle it into one of the Islands illegally. Apart from that there are no other problems with travel between the two Islands. Some planning may be required, and you need to decide if you want to drive yourself or, if you don’t have your own vehicle, rent a car with a driver. It doesn’t cost much more and may be worth while if the driver has lots of local knowledge about the Island that you are visiting.
