If you want to discover the island of the gods and some of the many beautiful wonders of Bali in the most efficient and comfortable manner, then we would suggest to rent a car with a driver. Prices are rather cheap compared to other holiday destinations.
It is possible to rent a car without a driver and drive on your own (you need international driving license!), but Bali is "very dynamic", with many small roads, not many road signs, and with a driving culture that can be described as "intuitive". Not easy to drive here without getting stressed real quickly.
In order to play it safe, hassle-free and comfortable it is advisable to hire a car, minibus or even a bus for larger groups from a professional and experienced company who work with trained and registered drivers. And the extra cost for a driver is very small, something between 10-25US$ per day, so only renting a car without diver might not be worth it compared to the hassle you can get yourself into.
You can book organized private full day or half day tours or simply arrange a car rental with driver for 5 or 10 hours and tell the driver where you want to go. That's the easiest way.
Have a look at our vehicle list. You can reserve your car and driver or even tour directly on Bali.com and benefit from some great discounts. Or send us an email via our contact form (note briefly what car you want, for how long, when, what you would like to do, no. of passengers, etc.) We will forward your inquiry to one of our hand-picked partners who have a proven track record, are highly reliable, hire trained and trustworthy drivers, and operate a fleet of new vehicles that are safe, insured and well maintained.
Fair Prices & Quality:
Some car rentals might be slightly cheaper than others. If you bargain hard you can get a driver with a car for around Rp. 600,000. But experience showed, that with such low prices, these drivers can hardly make a living. This means that they will understandably try to make some extra cash somehow or have already cut down their costs on permit fees, maintenance, tax payments, etc. Age and condition of the cars play a major role too.
The traffic on Bali is crazy and has nothing to do with traffic in Australia, US, Europe, Japan etc. Particularly if you intend to rent a scooter, you need to be careful and alert, and know a few things that keep you safe. We gathered a few helpful tips for you.
