(same price for every pier) The fee for a motorcycle is 15 baht, a 4-wheel car is 50 baht and a bus is 100 baht.
Visitors wishing to drive a car further than the customs checkpoint have to obtain car insurance for driving in Malaysia. Other regulations are that the car must not have more than 40% tinting and must have seatbelts, as Malaysia is very strict about vehicle safety. It is possible to purchase insurance in Thailand providing coverage for 9 days to 1 year with the normal cost of insurance being between 600 and 700 baht. To get there, take Highway No. 4084 (Amphoe Mueang-Amphoe Tak Bai).
