How to get a Taxi in Bali
Locating your Bali taxi couldn’t be easier due to their wide availability, especially in the southern area. Bali is a popular destination for tourists, so the Bali taxi service is organised to suit your needs. You can just flag a taxi from the street, call one from your hotel or information counters at major touristic spots. Some taxi companies also have apps that you can download to book your ride. Further, you can find a taxi at the available taxi ranks in Bali like Balira Transport, Alor and Yudi Collection.
Whether you’re calling up or catching a Bali taxi off the street, you won’t have to wait long for your ride to arrive. There are plenty of taxis roaming around the province and all you need to do is look for the blue taxis with their roof light on; just hold your hand out and wait for the driver to pull over to the side of the road to let you in. Keep in mind that Bali taxis often make their availability clear by slowing down/stopping next to you and asking if you need a ride.
If it’s getting dark and you are at a local restaurant or another establishment, you can call a taxi to come and pick you up in less than 10 minutes. Although different companies offer this style of pickup, the most well-known one is Bluebird which can be reached on +62 361701111.
Book your Bali Transfer in advance with Welcome
Even though inexpensive, the actual cost of your ride will depend on many factors like the actual distance to your destination, the traffic, and the number of passengers. Also, many taxi companies have hidden fees and Bali drivers try to make the most out of tourists by charging them extra, taking advantage of the currency’s difference.
If you want to plan your journey’s expenses without worrying about unexpected fees or being overcharged, then pre-booking your Bali taxi service will take a lot of weight off your shoulders. For a regulated price with no hidden fees, stellar personalised service and local English speaking drivers, book your taxi with Welcome Pickups.
Bali Taxi Tips
- It may take much longer to go from point A to B within Bali during peak hours, so patience and planning your trip with plenty of time to spare are recommended.
- Avoid larger notes when paying your fare as your taxi driver may not have enough change to give you the difference.
- As not all Bali taxi drivers speak English, communication might be challenging. You can put your destination on Google Maps or have it written down to ensure things go smoothly.
- Be mindful when entering and exiting a taxi or private vehicle in Bali and check that the road is clear; traffic congestion is common and so are rash drivers.
- As tourists are often unaware of the local taxi prices, Bali taxi drivers might state a higher price than the journey is worth. Ensure you agree on a fare before entering your ride and for your peace of mind, ask around for the trip’s cost and/or negotiate with different drivers.
- If you haven’t agreed on a price beforehand, check that your driver has set up the taximeter when entering your taxi.
Wheelchair Accesible Taxis in Bali
Unfortunately, most taxis in Bali are not yet wheelchair accessible. However, there are vehicle companies that provide minivans with portable ramps and hydraulic lifts making wheelchair transport easy. If you wish to book an accessible minivan with spacious seating, you can contact Bali Access Travel.
Bali Taxi Safety and Complaints
The Bali taxi customer service may vary depending on the company and the driver. If you find your driver rude, if they take a longer route to build up the fare, or if you feel unsafe during your journey, you must note the driver’s ID number which is visible on their dashboard, to later make a complaint by calling their company. In general, you may want to avoid independent drivers as they’re less regulated and therefore less safe in comparison with the regulated local taxis.
