Cars are the most common and viable way of getting around in Bali. Driving on your own lets you explore the island at your own pace, and at a lower cost compared to multiple taxi rides. However, you’ll need an International Driving Licence to hire a car and drive in Bali, otherwise not carrying a licence may invalidate your insurance. Driving in Bali can come as a shock to first time visitors because of the amount of motorbikes and free-wheeling nature of the traffic.
The most recommended and hassle-free way of getting around the island is by renting a car with a driver, and even better, with a guide. This option lets you ride with ease as you sit back, relax, and enjoy your journey from point A to B, and anywhere in between. Furthermore, with an English-speaking guide accompanying your ride, you’ll get valuable insights and a deeper understanding of the island and the sights along the way.
