Does Hiring Bali Tour Driver Recommended?

Moving from one place to another is going to be needed upon a travel trip to a place like Bali so that hiring a Bali tour driver may just be needed. But, does it really recommended to hire a driver to drive to some spots? Will the driver just be a driver or provide its service as a tour guide as well? Well, aside of other transportation options to get around the island of Bali a tour driver is a specialized one for a tour. So, it is not just a driver to take to any place. The driver will help traveling to popular spots that should not be missed while in Bali.

Complete Tour Package with a Driver

A Bali tour island for example can be in a complete tour package including a tour driver all along. Those who are traveling to Bali by using certain tour packages or services offered by any tour agents around will probably get the driver already within the package price and services. That is a beneficial way to navigate the island of Bali. There is no need to worry about transportation anymore while enjoying many things offered by Bali. It is okay to even ask the tour agents regarding a tour driver whenever needed for the total convenience of the trip.

Car and Driver Service from Rentals and Hotels

On the other hand, a Bali tour driver can be hired along by renting a car for transport. Obviously as a popular place to visit by local tourist and foreign alike, there are lots of transportation related services around Bali. Car rental is surely one of the transportation businesses to be easily found in Bali. Commonly the cost of renting a car for a day along with the driver is between IDR 400,000 and IDR 600,000. Obviously, that is a fair price which will guarantee comfortable trip amidst the crowded streets of Bali.

Surprisingly many hotels in Bali provide that kind of service as well. The service of car transportation along with a driver to drive and guide the trip around for a day will cost more money. It can even be more expensive compared to getting that same service from car rentals. The cost to pay could be between IDR 800,000 and IDR 1,000,000 for the package. Half of that most likely will be for the hotel and the rest will be for the driver plus the money for the gas as well. Clearly hiring a Bali tour driver is not recommended for budget travelers.

Tipping and Meals Providing

Aside of paying for the main cost of renting a car and hiring the driver all along, it is common to give a tip to the driver who has been so helpful all day long. The amount of money needed to tip the driver could be between IDR 50,000 and IDR 100,000 for a day. That is just the tip while the meals of the driver should be the responsibility of the traveler as well that could be up to twice at most in a day. So, expect to spend about IDR 200,000 or more for tipping and feeding the hired Bali tour driver.

Cheaper Alternatives

A decent alternative to have a comfortable transport from one place to another is surely by making use of today’s online transportation service application on smartphones. Using the app there could be a service of car and driver to be requested. Yet it can only be for a drive from one place to another. It cannot be hired for a day trip to many places. Yet the cost could be a lot cheaper compared to hiring a Bali tour driver especially the private one directly from the hotels.
