Safely and securely book a private car and driver for your Bali holiday. Whether it’s for going shopping, getting around the beach clubs or venturing out on a day tour, a private car and driver just makes life so much easier and takes away the hassle of haggling with the taxi mafia in places where ride-sharing apps cannot operate.
Since starting Bali Holiday Secrets, I have had so many inquiries asking to book the same drivers that I use for my family, friends, and villa guests that I’ve made a secure, online booking system that takes away the risk, stress and hassle of finding your own reliable, trustworthy, English-speaking private car and driver.
I can’t recommend his services and his advice enough!
I randomly found Michael’s website a few months before our first trip to Bali and I am so thankful I did! We literally followed his tips exactly for getting through customs, buying a SIM card and getting out cash and it was so smooth. We booked an airport transfer and 4 full days with a private driver… which I was a little nervous about at first (just to be honest), but everything worked out perfectly. Having a private driver ensured we saw all we wanted without having to deal with the tricky local taxis and it gave us peace of mind knowing who we would be with every day. I can’t recommend his services and his advice enough!
How much does a private car and driver cost?
The cost is standard and is dependent on where you want to go.
- IDR 800k for day tours around South Bali and includes 10 hours.
- IDR 1.000k for tours that take in North or East Bali and includes 12 hours.
Trips to the other side of Bali takes longer, uses more fuel and is harder on vehicles than just touring locally. However, if you choose a South Bali tour and change your mind and want to go to attractions further away, you can simply pay the extra IDR 200k directly to your driver on the day.
South Bali includes Canggu, Gianyar, Jimbaran, Kuta, Legian, Nusa Dua, Seminyak, Sanur, Ubud and Uluwatu.
Attractions in South Bali include Tanah Lot, Ubud Monkey Forest, Ubud Art Market, Tegalalang Rice Terraces, Bali Safari & Marine Park, Tegenungan Waterfall, Waterbom Theme Park, Uluwatu Temple, Goa Gajah, Gunung Kawi, Garuda Wisnu Kencana, Bali Swing Park, Bali Bird Park, Pura Tirta Empul, Ubud Royal Palace, Tukad Cepung Waterfall, Kanto Lampo Waterfall, Tibumana Waterfall and of course, all the beaches from Canggu all the way down to Uluwatu.
North Bali includes Bedugul, Lovina, Singaraja, Plaga and Kintamani.
Attractions in North Bali include Handarah Golf Course Gates, Mount Batur – Kintamani, Jatiluwih Rice Terraces, Ulun Danu Beratan Temple, Bedugul Market (Pasar Candi Kuning), Lovina, Aling-Aling Waterfall, Gitgit Waterfall, Sekumpul Waterfall, Nungnung Waterfall, Leke Leke Waterfall.

What is and what isn’t included?
The private car and driver rate includes being picked up from your hotel or villa by an English speaking, trustworthy and knowledgable driver with immaculately maintained 6-seater air-conditioned SUV. Fuel, applicable taxes and hotel pick-up and drop-off. are all included.
Not included: Parking fees, entrance tickets to attractions or event tickets (if any).
I am staying at different villas and hotels. Is that OK?
It’s no problem if you need picking up at one place and dropped off at another as long as they are both in the South Bali service area. We provide pick-up/drop-off at hotels in Canggu, Jimbaran, Kuta, Legian, Nusa Dua, Sanur, Seminyak, Ubud and Uluwatu only.
Can I choose tours and places to visit?
You can plan your schedule directly with the driver when you meet or look through my posts on itineraries for day tours, attractions, temples, beach clubs and waterfalls beforehand. You can choose from some popular routes which my drivers are very knowledgable, or you can choose to follow your own tour itinerary. We’re OK with whatever you decide and you can change your itinerary as the day progresses.
