Bali Taxi Prices

Everyone always asks me about Bali Taxi Prices, because they have been ripped off at least once. Don’t worry so have I, on more than one occasion.

Don’t get ripped off by Bali Taxi Drivers anymore! These are my best tips and guides to Bali Taxi prices. Everything from How much it costs to get a Taxi from the Denpasar Bali Airport?‘, ‘How much should a Bali Taxi Cost?’ getting around Bali, or even using an Uber.

When travelling short distances around Bali the ‘Bluebird’ taxi’s are cheaper. There are many different Taxi’s in Bali and many different Bali Taxi prices, but the 1 most trusted Taxi is the “Bluebird Taxi Group”. Make sure you ask them to put the meter on, as not all Bluebird taxis are what they seem anymore.

Other Taxi drivers often claim their meter is not working and will negotiate a fee which unless you know the price you may find yourself overpaying. Worse, when you arrive at your destination, other drivers may make demands for extras like tips and parking costs, and you may feel obliged because you have been taken to where you asked.

I would suggest that if your driver makes excessive demands, politely refuse, take a note of the drivers I.D., and threaten to call the police. That usually clears things up pretty quickly. When hailing a taxi on the street look carefully at the company name and bird logo on the side of the vehicle and the logo on the crown light to ensure that you are taking a taxi from the Bluebird Taxi Group.

If you are an Uber lover, Uber is now available in Bali. I personally haven’t tried it but, next time I’m in Bali I might give it ago and see how the price goes.

Tips for using a taxi in Bali

    • Bluebird taxes have the best reputation (but not all drivers)
    • A lot of the taxi’s look the same, most Bluebird Taxi’s have ‘Bluebird Group’ written across the top of the front window.
    • Have plenty of change on you, drivers often claim not to have change, hoping you will allow them to keep the difference.
    • Always request for the meter to be turned on even in the Bluebird taxis.
    • Make sure the driver understands where he is going.
    • Ask the driver to repeat your destination to you, or ensure that he knows your destination by giving it to him in writing.
    • Some places do not get a lot of taxi service, if you want him to keep the meter running while he waits, or if he’s willing to settle for an hourly fee. IDR 40,000 (about AU $4) is a good waiting fee.

Estimating Bluebird Taxi Fee’s

How much does a Taxi cost in Bali? While it’s hard to know exactly what taxies are charging I think using these calculations should give you a good idea:

  • A Normal starting tariff, when hailing a taxi is about Rp7,000 (AU .70c)
  • Rp 6,500.00 to Rp 10,000 per km (AU .65c to $1 depending on traffic)
  • If you need a taxi to wait around for you, expect to pay Rp 40,000 (AU $4) for an hour.
  • Minimum fare if ordered by phone: Rp. 40,000 even for a short distance.

So get out your Google maps and see how far it is you want to go.. ie for a 10km trip expect to pay between $6.50-$10.
