Getting around while you are in Bali is very easy. Or, could be not easy. Well, it is depend on several things. Just be sure that do not just walk-in near your hotel only, e.g just go to the beach behind your hotel, or just having breakfast at the restaurant in front of your hotel.

It is true that Bali is a small island. But it does not mean you will just enough to enjoy it without 'go far' from your hotel. You will loose many thing about Bali if you do this. You will absolutely need a transportation to enjoy Bali with its unique culture, people and places of interest.

Public transportation in Bali is served by minibus, or the local called it Bemo. But while you are in Bali, it is highly advised that you should hire a car for you to drive. Not only for the car, you can rent for other vehicle such as motorbike or even bicycle. But of course, for multi-purpose activity, renting a car is the best option to take.

In order to know more about Bali, there are various options you can take. Which one is the best for you is depend on your needs, and also your budget. Also depend on how many persons in your group. It will be absolutely different for the transportation you will use, if you are alone with if you are in a group of 4 persons, for example.

Here please find the options how to get around in Bali, as well.

Most favorite transportation in Bali is renting a car

CAR RENTAL BALI

Car rental agencies in Bali can be found in all major tourist areas. They are existed at many street side, once again especially at touristic places. Although you can just rent the car from them but it is always safe and convenience if you just make a Bali car rental booking via online booking.

Why you should rent a car in Bali? It is because public transportation here is not popular. In other word, the public transportation here is not good. The only one we can count on (beside car rental) for public transportation in Bali is the taxi. But everybody knew, taxi service is expensive. What we want to get is a cheap-mass transportation service.

Find the trusted-reputable online car rental company in Bali and see the car rental prices directly from the website. You can compare it. You can also bargain it, just maybe they have a special program. On a low season November and February they might be have a discount program. But do not expect under high season July - August and under peak season New Year.

Prices start from USD 18 per day for a mini jeep Suzuki Jimny and about USD 33 per day for a luxury family car Toyota Innova. These price is for a Self drive option.

The most popular probably the Toyota Avanza which is also available in automatic gear box. This is a mid class car in Indonesia, and also Bali. So it is a good choice for everybody who want to Self drive to visit some places of interest in their holiday programe in Bali.

If you want to hire a hire, just please add around USD 10 for 10 hours per day. Please be noted that those 10 hours is for both the driver and car. Unless you rent the car for self driven then you can use it for 24 hours per day.

If you took a With driver option, and 10 hours is not enough for you, then you can take for additional hour, which will cost you around USD 4 - USD 6 per hour. This is including for the driver's meal and tip. So you do not need to spend another dollar.

Sometime, you will spend the night in the area of Bali which is far away such as Lovina or Singaraja, then you will be charged for around another USD 15 per night which is including for driver's meals and accommodation. The driver will look for his own hotel room - usually near your hotel - so that we will ready next morning to continue the trip with you.

Based on our car rental customer's database from 10 renters only one of them who took the driver service. The rest, nine of them were prefered to took the car for self driven. Self driven is absolutely give you more freedom and privacy to explore the island than with the driver option.

MOTORBIKE / SCOOTER RENTAL

This option is becoming more popular recently. The fact that the road in Bali is more crowded, so rather than driving a car it is better just ride a motorbike! Of course, if you are in Bali with your family group, renting a car is the best option. The price for an automatic motorbike such as Honda Vario is USD 8 per day. This is scooter is the most famous one to be rented in Bali.

There are two reasons why renting a scooter is good:

Firstly, it is cheap. Sure, compared with the cheapest car the Suzuki Jimny, the Honda Vario automatic motor bike is only USD 8 per day to rent. If you are a young couple, it can be your alternative for your transportation needs in Bali.

Secondly, you can avoid any busy road. Unlike like a car, when you are on the busy road, you must be patient in order to drive. For some condition, you can only drive your rental car in limited speed. Even, sometime, you must stop at all as the traffic is vary bad. Very busy and crowded.

It some time happens in Kuta, Legian or Denpasar area. By renting a motor bike, you can just ride easily and no worry with the traffic jam.

But while renting a motor bike is more convenience (and also cheap) we need to let you know that when you are on the road, sometime it is more difficult to ride than renting a car. We meant about the police. Please note that in Indonesia, the driving license of both is different.

They have their own driving license between the car and the scooter. While many car renters usually having their own car driving license (either the IDP international driving license or their country of origin driving license) but usually the do not have for the motor bike license!

This will give a chance to the police officer to stop you and ask you some fine if there is regular road checking (although it is rare) and you cannot show them your motor bike driving license.

So which one is suitable for you, either renting a car or a motor bike always prepare your driving license in order to drive in Bali.

Bali cycling in Sanur and Ubud

BICYCLE / MOUNTAIN BIKE

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. One of the paradise area to get a bicycle rental is in Sanur area, around the famous Danau Tamblingan street.

Another famous area which is very popular to do a cycling in Bali is in Taro, Ubud. It is an sub urban area surrounded by the rice field and villages so it is a good place to do cycling in Bali. When we are in Taro Ubud we will see many cyclist on their own group cycling along the street. When you are in your car or motor bike just drive it slowly, give them a way first with their bicycles.

BEMO

Public transport in the form of mini-vans is by the far the cheapest way to travel, although not the most comfortable. It is not recommended if you do not have an 'adventure sense' in your life. Another minus for bemo is, this transportation only serve for short route, or does not serve for long route, e.g Kuta to Lovina. For your convenience and safety lets just forgotten this kind of Bali transportation..

TOURS

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. The minus is you do not have any choice with the itinerary. It usually came from the organizer, and you will have to follow it.

From years to years we see that tourist in Bali is preferred to just organizing their trip by their own. Well we can still find many tourists with their tours arrangement, such as Chinese and Taiwanese, but the tourist from other countries especially from European countries they never take a tour guide. They just make a trip organized by their own and thus they can just rent a car in Bali when ever and where ever they would like!
