prepaid taxi from airport

Hi

Are there any reliable or government run cab service from Bali airport to a hotel in Kuta? What would be the cheapest option? Any suggestion would be welcome

Just do not take Grab from the airport. May I refer you to my experience with them (today’s post on forum). Others have replied with information that may be relevant to you. Hope this helps.

Hi Pragyak17,

The national-level and reliable taxi brand so far is 'BLUE BIRD'. Just wait at their queue line. Beside that you can contact your hotel to know if they provide free shuttle. In my two visits in Bali, the hotel also provide it freely, but you may contact them first before you landed.

There is an official Taxi cooperative at Arrivals. They have a desk just after the Dufry Shop before you get to the throngs of people. Official rate to Kuta IDR70/80k depending on location.

You could go up to departures and flag down a Bluebird doing a Dropoff.

Can't say how much you'll be charged but last month got a taxi from Grand Inna to Airport and cost IDR55k

Hi Riza

Thankyou. Blue Bird sounds good...the hotel provides pick up at a cost but i was wondering if taking cab directly from the airport is better..especially since i have to apply for visa on arrival and i don't know how much time that will take.

Blue Bird taxis are not, I repeat not, allowed to pick up at Arrivals at Ngurah Rai airport. You need to go to the transport ("taxi") desk. Or prearrange a driver to meet you. Or negotiate with a driver looking for business after exiting the airport. Or have your accommodation send a driver. We all require transport to our accommodation and this should be included in your budget for a holiday in Bali.
