b) International arrival terminal; the taxi counter is next to the information desk after you walk through the little “Dufry” shopping arcade.

  1. The rates for #22 and #31 are the other way around. Oberoi and Kerobokan are Rp 135,000 and Umalas, Banjar Semer and Kuwun (further away than Oberoi/Kerobokan) are Rp 150,000.
  2. Teuku Umar (#7 / Rp 125,000) and Renon (#8 / Rp 135,000) are less expensive than Sanur (#22 / Rp 150,000). This is somewhat unusual as Sanur is closer from the Bali airport than both Renon and Teuku Umar.

Wonder what the old Bali Ngurah Rai airport taxi rates were?

You will need to state your destination and they will quote you the price. You will get a ticket with the number of your taxi and the price you need to pay.

Your taxi driver will be at the counter as well and walk you to the car. You pay direct to the driver (not at the counter).

5. Scams

Sometimes the Bali airport taxi will charge higher than the official rates. This generally happens during peak times when there is a big demand for taxis.

Also, if you arrive late night, the official airport taxi counter may have closed. There will still be taxi drivers hanging around although they will take advantage of the situation and charge very high fees.

Have a look in the comments below to read what others have experienced. If you have been charged above the official rate for the Bali airport taxi please share your experience with us.

6. Bali private driver

Bali private driver ~ if you rather not deal with the overpriced airport taxis you can also consider getting your own private driver. If you have a private driver waiting for you you will not have to queue for an airport taxi. You will also not need to worry about having to negotiate a fair price with the airport taxi crew.

Contact our friends at Top Bali to book a reliable private driver for an airport transfer or day tour.

7. Other alternatives

Hotel driver ~ Most hotels in Bali offer optional airport transfer services at a supplement fee. Some hotels will include free airport transfers if you book direct.

Grab Taxi ~ This is the Asian version of Uber (founded in Malaysia). You will need to have the Grab Taxi app installed on your smartphone.

Bluebird ~ Bluebird is one of the most reputable meter taxis in Bali. They are officially only allowed to drop customers at the Bali airport. They do not have a license to pick-up customers from the Bali airport. Nevertheless, it is sometimes possible to go up to the highest floor where the international departure terminal is and quickly hop into a Bluebird taxi who has just delivered customers to the departure terminal.

Sarbagita public bus ~ Sarbagita is the public transport provided by the Bali province. They have a bus stop at the international arrival terminal on the ground floor. The bus drivers about every 30 minutes to an hour. A bus ticket will cost you about Rp 7,500. The bus stops at major roads and is perhaps not convenient unless you have very little luggage to carry.
