What is the Current price for a driver

Hi, with the rise in petrol, what is the current going rate to hire a driver and vehicle for a day or half day.

I am not after the names of drivers, just the going rate for a mini van, which seats 7 people plus the driver,

cheers

and thanks

our driver charges 500,000 for a full day 300,000 for 4 hour half day. A little more if the trip is very long ie, Kuta to Lovina/ Pemuteran area

Another driver we have used is now 800,000 for a full day. His idea of a full day is up to 12 hours and he has a 4WD

Yes prices have gone up due to petrol costs. 500 000 for 8 hours. A reputable driver should give correct amount though.

Yer My question sounded wrong..... I knew about the increase in fuel in bali and I know that it was 4500rp last time I was there last year.

6500rp is a lot for the people in bali :o

Yes, in June of this year gasoline (bensin) went up to Rp6,500, and Solar (diesel) went up to Rp5,500.

More of course if purchased from a roadside 'bottle' vendor.
