Bali is an island with lots of beautiful attractions and fun activities for everyone to enjoy. Although the island may seem small, travelling around is not as easy as one might think. Travelling around from point to point can take an hour or two, eating up the precious hours of your holiday which should be spent on enjoying the beauty of Bali to the fullest instead.
So, should you hire a private tour driver in Bali? Our answer is yes! There are so many reasons on why we would recommend all tourists to get a private tour driver in Bali. Here are the key ones!
Ease of transportation needs
There is no train network in Bali and while there are bus services, their routes are limited to certain areas only with very low frequency. Surely you do not want to spend the bulk of your holiday waiting for public transportation?
Given the limited transportation options, hiring a private tour driver is the best way for every tourist to fully experience the beauty of Bali within the short period of a holiday.
Saving holiday precious time
Nothing beats having a private driver at your beck and call during a holiday. From picking you up from your accommodation in the morning to sending you for your ATV ride, followed by a nice dinner on the beach with the beautiful sunset, you can be rest assured that your private driver is always ready to pick you up and send you to your next destination swiftly.
If you have a tight itinerary, you definitely need to be transported around quickly. Waiting for a bus or taxi? Ain’t nobody got time for that!
More affordable and reliable than Taxis
If you are only intending to go to a single destination during your day, then just hailing a taxi would do. But if you are intending to go to multiple locations, hiring a private tour driver would be more affordable. Multiple short trips using taxis are likely to cost you more than hiring a private tour driver.
How affordable are the private tour drivers, you ask? Check out our prices here. At Joya Bali Drivers, we price ourselves competitively starting from USD38 for 10 hours. Despite the low rates, we offer the best service we can, earning us multiple 5-star reviews on TripAdvisor.
Be at wherever you want to be, whenever you want to
Engaging a tour driver does not mean that you have to follow a fixed tour route. In fact, you can share your custom itinerary with the tour drivers and they will take you to wherever you want to go throughout the day.
In fact, helpful tour drivers will even study your custom itinerary, and recommend a different tour route or schedule to make sure that you are making the most of your time!
A no-brainer for larger groups
Private tour drivers have multiple vehicle options available which provide great flexibility, especially if you are travelling in a larger group. Trying to get multiple taxis to get the entire group to another location is just going to waste precious time and money. In fact, travelling in larger groups would make it even more worthwhile for you to get a private tour driver.
At Joya Bali Driver, we can accommodate all group sizes from 1 pax to 16 pax. So there’s nothing to worry about if you are travelling in a larger group!
More than just your personal driver in Bali
For this, we can’t guarantee the same for all the tour drivers out there. But at Joya Bali Driver, our drivers do not simply drive you from point to point. We will happily double up as your local guide, touring the different destinations with you and sharing the local way of life.
If you need us to be, we will even be your personal photographer. We just ask for your pardon if our photography skills are not up to your standard. We try our best to take wonderful photos although we are not professional photographers!
No more heavy shopping bags
What’s a Bali trip without a shopping spree of unique Bali souvenirs, homeware and art? If you travel in taxis from point to point, that means that you would have to bring your shopping bags everywhere you go.
With a private tour driver, you can simply leave your shopping bags in the car while you go on another shopping spree at your next destination!
We hope this article has helped you to make your decision on whether you should engage a private tour driver! If it has helped you to decide on getting one, we definitely hope that you would consider engaging Joya Bali Driver’s services for your holiday in Bali.
Cheers, and we look forward to hosting you in Bali!
