Bali is relatively small, but due to persistent traffic it can still take a arduously long time to travel around. The ubiquitous ‘bemo’ (minibuses) are the cheapest public transport option available, but for maximum convenience you can’t beat paying for the privilege of your own private car and driver. There are numerous car rental companies in Bali offering private drivers as part of their packages – with some surprisingly affordable deals, too. We’ve picked out three of the best catering to a broad spectrum of budgets and needs.
