Taxi Charges for a day

Taxi Charges for a day

Hi All,

This would be my first time travelling to Batam with two of my friends.

We have already purchased our ferry ticket and booked hotel room too.

We're just missing one last step which would be the taxi driver.

What's the estimated cost for booking a driver for a whole day?

If you have trustable driver to recommend, feel free to write in a message to me or leave me their emails.

Thanks :)

hahaha i think i have been missing out on some posts here... One of my fellow TA friends noticed that Batam forum has many many posts being removed!!! Good job well done by the mods...

joyvember, it's about $60/for 8-10 hours.. depending on the driver and where you stay. But that is a good benchmark. When will you be coming?

Rent a car. it is much cheaper if you can drive. Buy a map from a local bookstore. Most malls are selling them. Toyota Avanza around Rp200,000 for 24 hours. Around SGD$20+
