How to Get Around

Bali Plus - - FEATURED -


Car rental agen­cies can be found in all the ma­jor tourist ar­eas. Prices start from ap­prox­i­mately USD 30 a day for a Suzuki-style jeep (Jimny) and about USD45 for a new Ki­jang jeep. Or­ga­nize and ar­range your car rental needs for a hol­i­day or busi­ness stay. Most rental cars in Bali are in de­cent shape, BUT you should check them thor­oughly be­fore sign­ing any forms. Al­ways carry an in­ter­na­tional driver’s li­cense with you.


You can find bikes for rent al­most ev­ery­where. Prices usu­ally start from around USD6/day for a stan­dard 125cc mo­tor­bike. Scoot­ers, af­fec­tion­ately called ‘Be­beks’ (Ducks), start at around USD5/day. Al­ways check the bike be­fore part­ing with your cash. In In­done­sia you have to wear a hel­met by law and carry an in­ter­na­tional driv­ers li­cense!


Cy­cling can be a cheap and en­joy­able way to get around and about. It does, how­ever, take some fit­ness to ride around the more cen­tral and hilly re­gions! The north­ern coastal roads are ideal for longer trips. You can find bike rental shops in all the main tourist ar­eas.


Public trans­port in the form of mini-vans is by far the cheap­est way to travel, al­though not the most com­fort­able!


Or­gan­ised tours re­lieve you from the has­sle of try­ing to nav­i­gate your own way around. You do have to fol­low itin­er­ar­ies how­ever, so spur of the mo­ment sight-see­ing is not an op­tion on these.
