Driver for 10 days.

What happens if you need a driver for 10 days and you want him to stay with you for the entire time and travelling all across Bali?

i would e mail some of the recommended drivers from the forum and ask them about availability and prices. are you staying in the one place for a while or moving each day? bali is not a big place so unless you are going to some of the more remote areas a driver is more likely to pick you up in the morning and then drop you back at your hotel in the evening. sometimes they will do an overnight stay if necessary and charge accordingly. for example if you are staying say at legian and want to go to ubud, or candi dasa, amed or areas within an hour or two and then return to your hotel they will pick up and drop off and there is no need for them to stay with you. if you give an idea of your plans then it will be clear as to whether you need a driver 24 / 7. most people just book for the days they need someone for day trips as you often want free time and taxis are so cheap to get you around to close attractions and are cheaper than drivers for times like this. remember it does not take long to get from one part of bali to the next.

Some hotels/villas may have facilities for your driver.

If not he will be able to find cheap local accomodation for which you would pay...$US10/night at a guess.

I would also give him extra for food.

It can be great fun to do a tour around Bali and stay in different places.

2 years ago, we drove all around the coast.

We headed from Seminyak to Tabanan, Negara, Bali National Park, Menjangan island, Pemuteran, Lovina, Amed, Candi dasa and back to Seminyak.. stopping off in different places.

Another time, visited inland fabulous places.. Ubud, Sideman, Tirtagangga, Munduk, Bedugal and Pupuan.. Stunning scenery and wonderful people.

Very different experience than staying in one of the main resorts.

Highly reccommended!
