On Tioman has only one paved road. It passes through Teluk village and connects the airport with "Berjaya" (you can see this road on the map). In this regard, there are almost no cars on the island, and for the shortest trip by car along this road you will be asked for a predatory 20ringgit.
Some unpaved roads can be navigated by Jeeps, but there are villages and hotels inaccessible even by off-road vehicles. A popular off-road route connects Teluk village with Juara village. A trip on this road will cost about 100 ringgit.
The optimal and, by and large, the only way to travel between the villages of the island and, accordingly, hotels is water transport. A local "water taxi" will take you from village to village or to one of the small neighboring islands, although such a trip can not be called cheap either. For example, to swim from Tetek to the nearest village of Salang will cost 30 ringgit (per boat, not per person). And on the other side of the island in the village of Juara swimming will cost 100 ringgit.
You can also use the ferry from the mainland to travel between villages (20 ringgit per trip), you just need to know the schedule.
A great way to quickly and economically move around the island is a bicycle. Bicycles can be rented for 5 ringgit per hour or 20 per day. But, unfortunately, a bicycle for rent is not so easy to find. Rental points are only in the village of Tetek.
Another way to explore the island is on foot. There are many trails and trekking routes on the island that you can conquer on your own or with a guide.
