Transfers are one-way only. So, if you need a round trip, you need to book it twice and change the destination. In that case, you can also build your own itinerary. For example, you can get a transfer from George Town to Belum Temenggor, and then from this page, a transfer from Belum Temenggor to Kuala Besut, or the way around.

We recommend to book your transfer arrangements early in advance. We listed a few departure times, but hours are flexible and can be adjusted according to your needs. However, we do recommend that you leave Belum before dusk (18.00) or leave Kuala Besut not later than early afternoon. This is because the East-West road, has poor lighting and there could be animals or elephants in the evening.
