Uber does not operate in Bali, and the other ride-hailing companies (Grab and Go-Jek) are not allowed to pick-up passengers from the airport. Taxis in Bali are known for their scams, so are you gonna risk your holidays for 10$?
Most of our customers book airport transfers from/to the Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS) in Denpasar, but we cover all destinations in the island, including Kuta, Canggu, Seminyak, Ubud, etc.
Avoid the stress on your holidays in Bali and pre-book your airport transfer with a professional car service: no currency exchange, no cash, no unexpected surcharges or re-routes.
Booking your black car ride in advance only brings peace of mind: no surge, assurance that a driver will be at the pick-up point at least 15 minutes before the established time, all-inclusive prices, 24/7 English-speaking hotline and many other benefits no other service can match.
Short answer: it depends. If you Google “Bali taxi mafia” you will get an idea of how things work in Denpasar and surroundings: taxi drivers have several scams going on, which include not using the meter, re-routing to random areas or day tours.
The best advice is to avoid taxis altogether. Renting a motorbike or upgrading your airport transfer to a car service are some of the best alternatives to the scammy and not so safe taxis in Bali. Also, you will be pre-booking your transfer with Taxi2Airport or GroundLink and paying by credit card, avoiding last-minute surcharges.
Blue Bird is the only taxi company that will not try to scam you. They are available around Denpasar, Canggu, Seminyak… but not in Ubud.
Always ask for the meter. If the cab driver says it’s broken or that it doesn’t work at night, look for another taxi. Fixed fares are a scam and you’d be overpaying.
Taxis are a good way of transportation for short trips or airport transfers. For longer trips, try booking Uber’s alternative in Bali: Grab or Go-Jek.
Taxis usually don’t accept credit cards, so bring some cash with you.
No, Uber pulled out of Bali, Indonesia and the entire South East Asia in March 2018 when it sold its business in the region to its main competitor Grab.
Still, ride-hailing is widely unsafe in Bali due to taxi riots and attacks. For example, you will probably not be able to take a Grab or Go-Jek from the Denpasar airport due to the taxi lobbying. Taxi drivers will ask for a fixed -and expensive- fare and only in cash.
