Book a Private Car and Driver Transfer to Bali (Denpasar) Airport from your Hotel or Villa. Remove the stress from getting to Bali Airport with my personalised pick-up service. Read my expert tips below on what to expect when departing Bali Airport and the estimated wait times for the 4 different queues you must pass through between the first security check and the immigration queues.
I also have Airport Transfers for:

What time do I need to book a pick-up?
One of the things my friends, family and guests asks most is how long before their flight should they arrange transport to the airport.
I suggest you book your transfer to the airport 3 hours before departure time. You would be surprised how quickly time can pass if you get stuck in traffic. That’s why my drivers know whether to stick to the main roads or take the back streets.
It’s also helpful to know that you need to go through 4 queues that can anything from a couple of minutes to more than 45 minutes depending on the departure traffic.
The first queue is the security check going from the arrivals hall through to the airline check-in counters. Unlike some other airports, non-flying guests cannot go past the security check to the airline check-in counters. Have your passport and departure ticket (I just load mine on my phone and show them that). Security will check them both with varying degrees of efficiency.
The second queue is for your flight check-in at the airline counter. If you took my advice and left 3 hours before your departure time you should be ok. Beware, Denpasar airport check-in can be notoriously slow.
The third queue is the main security check after the airline counters. This has improved lately with an upgrade on the style and number of security channels. Take your laptop out, but you can leave your shoes on.
The fourth and final queue in for immigration and this can get really long. Indonesian immigration takes checking for overstayers seriously and is notoriously slow. There are usually only around 4-6 officers on deck to service all international (non-Indonesian) passport holders.
What is and what isn’t included?
The transfer rate includes being picked up from your hotel or villa by an English speaking driver with a recognisable “Bali Holiday Secrets” sign and an air-conditioned SUV. Each car comfortably holds 1-4 people with checked luggage and suitcases. You can book as many cars as you need. My rates are all-inclusive and there are no hidden costs.
My collaboration with local drivers has seen us serve over 300+ satisfied customers with around 4 new bookings a day. My drivers can pick you up from any hotel or villa in Canggu, Jimbaran, Kuta, Legian, Nusa Dua, Sanur, Seminyak, Ubud or Uluwatu.
Who will be my driver?
After making a booking, you will receive a confirmation email with reservation details, expert tips on navigating the departure hall and the contact details of my head of transport. He will email you a day before your departure with the name and number of your assigned driver.
Airport transfer was great
I had Komang for my airport transfer yesterday and he was fantastic, thank you so much. He was so kind and helped me stop for snacks on the way to Canggu. Because I'm travelling by myself I felt so much safe than taking a taxi, especially after the stories I've heard. Great service!
