Cheapest driver in Bali

I plan to rent a driver while I'm in Bali. Does anybody know the cheapest rates you can get for drivers for a day? Also what places should I higher my driver at? Thanks

hi, we just got back from 1 month in bali and we hired a number of drivers.

i could recommend the following 2 for good service and good prices.

whilst staying in nusa dua we used


mobile 08123603419



he was very good had a good airconditioned car and spoke english well. we were happy to use him on more than 1 occasion and will use him again.

he only charged us 160 000rp for 8 hours which was cheap.

if you contact him mention you got this info from the couple from the sunshine coast who were buying furniture it should help you with prices. he can recomend places of interest, shopping etc without taking you to 'a friend etc etc' which can become anoying.

whilst in sanur we used made surata

mobile 081 747 96438.

very polite and prompt, only charged 200,000 max for a whole day. still very cheap.

these are good prices.

hi all

there are many "drivers " in bali , if you just need wheels and not a guide , you can find people along the streets everywhere offering " transport " pretty cheap and you can also bargain with them .

hope this helps

The going rate for a licensed and insured driver is between 350,000 to 450,000 Rupiah/day.

If you only pay 160,000/Rups/day I suspect that your driver is definitely getting commissions on your shopping, furniture, restaurant bills etc. Otherwise it doesnt make sense for him to drive you.

A tank of petrol is around 130,000/Rupiah. He needs to feed himself, support his family and maintain his car as well probably buying a packet of cigarettes!
