Many tourists who are vacationing in Bali choose to rent a car there as their transportation on the island. The reason is, of course, much more efficient and convenient. If you are vacationing in one of the water villa in Bali, which is located in Seminyak, you will find it difficult if you don’t bring a vehicle because there are many tourist attractions there. Renting a car is the best choice to reach many tourist objects you want to visit.
For those of you who are planning to go to Bali and need a car rental, there are several things to consider.
Adjust as needed
We recommend renting a car based on your needs while on vacation. For example, when on vacation with your family, you should rent a large enough car to be comfortable to drive. Then if your vacation is going around town to the Bali Zoo or the GWK Bali statue, choose a city car to save more gas than an SUV.
Find a safe and reliable car rental
Finding a car rental that can be trusted is relatively easy. As long as you are careful where the right one is. You can ask a friend who has rented a car in Bali if there is one that is recommended. You can also check the internet to see the existing reviews. After you are sure, contact the rental if you have questions about car rental.
With driver or without a driver
Car rental has two options: using a driver’s services or without a driver. If you are with a driver, you can sit quietly as a passenger without thinking about a remote location and fear getting lost. Meanwhile, if you choose to without driver, you can be free to drive anywhere, and the rent is cheaper.
Check the condition of the car
Before paying a down payment, it’s a good idea to ask first what the condition of the car to be rented is like. There’s nothing wrong if you ask about when the last service was, how the interior was in it, whether something was damaged, what about the engine’s condition, and so on. Knowing the car’s condition will make you better prepared for your vacation.
Pay attention to the time when renting
Typically, daily car rental is valid for 24 hours. If you exceed that time, there will usually be an additional fee as an extra charge. This is a common practice, so don’t be surprised if you’re suddenly asked to pay more than what was specified.
When deciding to rent a car, you need to know whether the rental price includes any additional fees. For example, if you rent a car with a driver, ask if the driver and petrol costs are included. Then you can compare the price with other car rentals. As an illustration, automatic car rental is usually more expensive than manual. So when you want to rent without a driver and choose an automatic car, make sure it fits your vacation budget.
