Renting a Car in Bali
There are several good car-hire companies in Bali. The terms are much the same as in other countries, with insurance usually included for the care rented, but not other vehicles if you are involved in an accident. So paying for additional insurance is advisable. An International Driver’s Licence is required, or you can apply for a Tourist Driver’s Licence in Bali.
Daily rates start at around US$25 per day without driver, up to US$70 per day with driver, depending on the type of vehicle.
There are many reasons for renting a car with driver: You will not be personally liable if there is an accident, you don’t need to worry about parking, you won’t get lost, you can leave the car safely if you go sight-seeing. Pretty much hassle-free for the extra. If you read the Rules of the Road in the Transportation chapter you will have a better idea of what I mean.
The better-known hire companies include Rentalcars.com (Avis, Europcar & Trac/Toyota), Bali Car Rental, Bali Car Hire, Auto Bali Car Rental, Best Bali Car Rental CV and Bali4ride.
The easiest way is to book online and pick up the car at the airport, or have the car delivered to your hotel in the southern beaches area.
