Transportation Cost in Bali
Depending on where you stay and how far you need to travel to get to the beach, shops or restaurants, the transportation costs per day can, of course, vary quite a bit. Choosing the location for your accommodation and therefore the method of transportation should be your main concern when planning your holiday since Bali is not very “pedestrian-friendly” due to lack of sidewalks, the heat and far distances.
Bicycle Rental (Average US$2-4 per day)
Not very common but a good way to get around in Ubud, Canggu and the more remote areas
Scooter/ Motorbikes Rental (Average US$ 5-7 per day)
Rent a scooter including helmet per day. Countless rental places all over Bali. Usually, without any insurance!
Premium and properly serviced Scooters/ Motorbikes (Average US$ 10-25 per day)
Special scooter with a bigger seat and large compartment to keep your belongings safe. Lexi, NMax, PCX, or Vespa with insurance, well maintained with drop and pick-up service to your hotel.
Best and most reliable Scooter Rental Service in Bali
Scooter Taxi/ Ojek (Average US$ 3-5/ trip) ( not via apps)
Managed by the local community, these guys hang around mostly during evenings and night near the pubs and clubs since many areas ban the app-driven transportation services like Go-Jek, Grab, Uber, etc. You can recognize them wearing a west with a number on it (some of them don’t). You would have to bargain with them, but they usually charge something between per trip if it’s not too far.
App driven scooter taxis (Average US$1-3 per trip) are significantly cheaper. Most visitors use those services twice a day
APPS: GOJEK & GRAB
Hiring a car with driver half and full day (Average US$20-60)
It is the most convenient way if you wish to explore the island and go for day trips. 8-10 hours rental, including gasoline and driver, will cost you anything between US$40-60, depending on the condition of the car. The driver is registered, pays insurance and taxes etc.

Taxi cars (Average ca. US$5-10 per trip, 20-30 minutes)
The cars that are managed by the local communities (you can’t miss them, since they continuously say “transport, transport”) charge roughly twice what the standard taxi and app-driven services would charge. Bluebird, Grabcar, Go-car (from Go-Jek app) are not expensive. An average trip from Seminyak to Kuta would cost you roughly USD seven if you use those taxi services.
