Taxis: Taxis are a convenient and relatively cheap way of getting around in South Bali. Blue Bird Taxis are reputable. We would recommend avoiding other taxi companies. If you do choose to use other taxis, only get into those that have metered fares and be prepared to have cash on hand (credit cards are not always accepted, much to our dismay).
Grab: Uber is not available in Bali. Fortunately, Grab (aka the “Uber of Southeast Asia”) is very prevalent, and fares are often very cheap. Be aware that pick up times can be long, your driver may speak very little English, and payment must be in cash. Also note that it will be very tough getting picked up by a Grab driver from the Denpasar airport and certain hotels due to the local “taxi mafia.”
Private driver: Private drivers are a great and affordable option if you are planning to explore several parts of the island on the same day. From our experience, rates can be $50-60 for a full day. Private drivers recommended by a hotel often come at a premium, so make sure to do your own research! We will aim to provide recommendations - please be sure to check back or ask us directly.
