Transportation in Bali (Sewa Mobil & Motor di Bali)

The old saying;” The Beautiful shoes will bring you to the beautiful place”. Some people believe and some doesn’t. But whatever it is you still indeed need transportation. As traveler/ backpackers/tourist my self every time i am visiting new place i will do some research about the transportation in the particular countries or area. I believe, we always looking for transportation that are convenience, cheaper and flexible.

Most of the countries have their own public transportation but some it is very limited. Remember, not all place same like yours. There are so many place it doesn’t have a good, convenient and board range public transportation such as Bali. The limitation of public transportation sometime can make us as traveler or tourist harder to reach our holiday destination.  Alternatively, we need to look for other choices of transportation that available although sometime it can cost us more expensive than what we are expected especially if it is on the spot. Doing research i think is very important, holiday can be very super expensive or less cheaper depends on the factors of our choices transportation. 

Bali is one of popular tourist destination either for local or international tourist. There is so many tourist attraction in Bali from north to south, east to west each with their own characteristic.  However, the limitation of public transportation in Bali forces neither local or international tourist looking for other option of transportation. So, herewith i list 6 alternative option transportation in Bali.


Pepatah lama mengatakan: “Sepatu yang bagus akan membawa mu ke tempat yang indah”. Beberapa orang percaya dan sebagianya tidak. Akan tetapi apa pun itu, tetap kita membutuhkan transportasi (kendaraan) untuk sampai ke suatu tempat tujuan kita. Sebagai seorang turis / wisatawan setiap kali saya berencana mengunjungi suatu tempat, saya akan melakukan sebuah research tentang kendaraan yang ada di negara atau daerah ersebut. Saya percaya, kita selalu mencari transport/kendaraan yang murah, nyaman dan flexible.

Banyak negara dan daerah mempunyai kendaraan umum yang bagus, aman, nyaman dan flexible akan tetapi sebagiannya lagi tidak. Keterbatasan transpotasi umum yang hanya meliputi beberapa area seperti pusat kota dan bukan tempat tujuan pariwisata sering kali membuat wisatawan sulit untuk mencapai tujuan mereka. Sebagai pilihan lain, wisatawan perlu mencari pilihan transportasi lain yang di sediakan. Walaupun sering kali hal ini membuat budget yang kita sediakan meningkat dari yang di prediksikan. Melakukan research tentang transport / kendaraan sangatlah penting karena ini akan mempengaruhi besar atau kecilnya uang yang kamu akan habiskan untuk liburan mu.

Bali sebagai salah satu tempat tujuan wisata yang popular baik bagi wisatawan asing maupun domestik menawarkan banyak tempat yang menarik dari utara ke selatan, timur ke barat. Akan tetapi keterbatasan transportasi umum di bali membuat turis/wisatawan lokal dan asing untuk mecari pilihan lain.Terlampir di bawah 6 pilihan transportasi di Bali:


1. Motorcycle Rental (Sewa Motor)

Motorcycle or in Indonesia known as “motor” is a popular alternative transportation neither for domestic or international tourism. The reason maybe because it is cheaper compare to car and also the condition of road in Bali which are small and traffic make motorcycle more flexible and faster to arrive to your destination. There are many place to rent a motorcycle for tourist in Bali with different variety of price depends on motorcycle type and duration.

“Witness Travels” is my new business as result of my passion in traveling provide service motorcycle rental in Bali for  Rp.100,00 -Rp.150,000/ day. Please free to contact me to ask anything….^-^ or follow our Instagram: @witness_travels.

Motor menjadi pilihan favorit bagi wisatawan asing maupun lokal di Bali. Hal ini di karenakan sewa motor lebih murah dari sewa mobil dan juga karenakan oleh faktor lain seperti kondisi jalan-jalan di bali yang sebagian area sangat kecil dan macet. Di Bali, banyak tempat seperti sepanjang jalan kuta menawarkan sewa motor semua dengan variasi harga yang berbeda beda.


2. Car Rental (Sewa Mobil)

Rent a car is also popular alternative transportation in Bali. Although it slightly more expensive than rent a motorcycle but it is more convenient especially on raining days. In Bali, you can rent a car only or car with the driver. The choice is in yours and there will be different price offer. Price for rent a car is very variable depends on the model of the car and duration.

“Witness Travels” is my new business as result of my passion in traveling provide service rental car in Bali for  Rp.500,000 -Rp.2,000,000/ 10 hours. Price is depends on the model of the car but all are include Car+Drivers+Gas.  Please free to contact me to ask anything….^-^ or follow our Instagram: @witness_travels.

Menyewa mobil juga adalah pilihan tranportasi yang popular bagi wisatawan asing dan lokal di bali. Walaupun harganya yang lebih mahal di banding kan dengan menyewa sebuah motor akan tetapi sewa mobil di bali sangat di minati mungkin di karenakan lebih nyaman terutama di hari hujan. Di bali, wisatawan/ turis bisa menyewa mobil saja atau sewa mobil dengan supir dan sudah termasuk BBM. Semua tergantung dengan pilihan anda dan harga yang di tawarkan juga akan berbeda. Harga sewa mobil juga akan berbeda tergantung dengan pilihan model dan durasi.


3. Transportation Online (Grab, Uber, Gojek etc)

The result of advance technology and demands of cheaper and flexible transportation made Grab, Uber and Gojek as transportation online popular in Indonesia as well as in Bali. In Bali, gojek, grab and uber have operate however in some place it is still banned and difficult to find the existence as the driver scared of the taxi  gojek conventional (motorcycle rent) drivers. The area which still banned such as Canggu area, Seminyak, Ubud and other place as well as some hotels. So, be careful if you plan to take grab,uber or gojek in Bali. All transportation online application such can be download from your play store or apple store. In Indonesia, Grab and Uber provide service for bike and car known as Grab bike, Grab car  & Uber bike / Uber Car. As for Go-jek which same like both uber and grab give more service such as Go-send (for send anything), Go-Food (Ordering food), Go-Box(moving), Go bike, Go-Car and etc. Grab and Go-jek have fix price meanwhile Uber have range price in between.

Kemajuan teknology and kebutuhan transportasi/kendaraan yang murah dan mudah membuat transportasi online seperti grab,uber dan gojek sangat di minati di indonesia termasuk di Bali. Di Bali, Go-jek, Grab dan uber telah beroperasi walaupun di beberapa area transportasi online ini masih di “banned” atau di larang. Hal ini membuat beberapa daerang sangat susah untuk mendapatkan gojek,uber ataupun grab di karenakan mereka masih takut dengan masyarakat sekitar khususnya supir taxi/ojek conventional. Beberapa area yang masih melarang transportasi online seperti Canggu, Seminyak, ubud dan daerah lain begitu juga di beberapa lokasi hotel berada. Kamu bisa mendowload applikasi untuk transportasi online ini di Apple store atau Play Store. Uber dan Gojek mempunyai service bike dan car dengan harga yang fix (pasti) dan Uber dengan range harga yang berkisar. 


4. Kura-Kura Bus

Kura-Kura bus maybe can become your alternative choice transportation in Bali. It’s slightly cheaper compare to conventional taxi and ojek (motorcycle rent) but the area of their service is not so broad and on schedule time. Kura-kura bus have their service in 7 line; Kuta Line, Legian, Seminyak,sanur, Jimbaran, Nusa Dua and Ubud line. I remember, I took this Kura-Kura Bus on my way to Ubud from DFS Gallery (Duty Free Stop)and I am very satisfied. The service is good and is cheaper compare the transportation online.  For more details about price and route, please check  : http://kura2bus.com/

Kura-Kura Bus mungkin bisa menjadi pilihan alternative transportasi anda di Bali. Pilihan transportasi ini lebih murah di bandingkan dengan Taxi /Ojek conventional. Akan tetapi kelemahanya adalah area yang diliputi service mereka sangat terbatas dan dalam durasi waktu yang telah terschedule. Kura-Kura Bus beroperasi di 7 line; Kuta line,Legian, Seminyak, Sanur, Jimbaran , Nusa Dua dan Ubud line. Pengalaman saya mengunakan Kura-Kura Bus sangat memuaskan dengan service mereka dan harga yang lebih murah di bandingkan dengan transportasi online. Saya naik kura-Kura bus dalam perjalanan saya ke Ubud dari DFS Galeri (Duty Free Stop). Untuk informasi harga dan rute Kura-Kura Bus: http://kura2bus.com/


5. Conventional Taxi & Ojek

Conventional Taxi and Ojek (motorcycle rent) is still the most popular transportation in Bali neither for local or international tourist. The most reason is because it available anywhere and anytime. However, the price can be very expensive compare to others transportation. As for the advice please first agree on the price before you hop up (ride in) especially on midnight.

Conventional taxi dan Ojek masih menjadi transportasi popular yang di minati bagi wisatawan asing maupun lokal. Hal ini di karenakan taxi dan ojek conventional sangat mudah di dapat di area manapun dan pada saat kapan pun. Akan tetapi jika dibandingkan dengan transportasi lainya, harga taxi dan ojek conventional sangat mahal terlebih lagi saat malam hari. Selalu ingat untuk menawar atau telah setuju dengan harga sebelum manaiki taxi atau ojek conventional.


6. Bali Public Transportation (Komotra, Dokar, Bus Trans Sabargita)

Apart from the transportation mention above, Bali also have their own traditional or public transports. It is known as Komotra, Dokar and Bus Trans sabargita. Mini Bus Komotra provide service to Kuta, Legian and Seminyak from sentral Parkir Kuta.  The mini bus can contain more or less 20 passengers with price around Rp.100,000/ trip or around Rp.6,500/person. It’s cheaper with unique experience, open space and laud music.

Dokar is traditional transport in Bali. It is like cart horse in oldies time and often found in tourism area such as Kuta. Tourist can hire dokar and go around Bali area with price range Rp.100,000 – Rp. 200,000. Lastly, is Bali public transport known as Trans Sabargita. Trans sabargita is mostly like Transjakarta (jakarta public transport) with price per ride only Rp.3,500/ person. However, the are of their service not include tourism area such as pantai kuta, seminyak, canggu etc. They mostly operate in the main area denpasar, some kuta area, DFS gallery and other area which specially where’s local stay.

Selain dari transportasi yang di sebutkan di atas, Bali juga mempunyai kendaraan tradisional dan transportasi umum. Kendaraan ini di sebut dengan nama Komotra, Dokar dan Bus Trans Sabargita.

Transportasi terakhir yang akan kita highlight di sini adalah Bali transportasi unum dikenal dengan nama Trans Sabargita.
