Updated December 2013: Sample Bali taxi fares

Published by at 10:04 am under Transport

Updated with the new fareboard from Bali’s new airport terminal. Note there has been a significant increase in rates primarily due to an increase in petrol costs. After we did our initial post regarding taxis fares from Bali airport, we’ve had many more inquiries about fares for specific routes. So, keeping that in mind, here are some of the more popular requests for taxi prices in Bali. Note these are either from the airport board (and so covered in the previous post as well), or estimated from the meter reading. If your taxi refuses to use the meter, use another taxi — Bali has plenty of taxis.

Official taxi rates for an Airport Taxi from Bali's new terminal.

Official taxi rates for an Airport Taxi from Bali’s new terminal.

Airport routes (these fares are prepaid at the airport)
Bali airport to Bukit: 125,000 rupiah (Ayana), 165,000 rupiah (Bingin, Padang Padang and Uluwatu)
Bali airport to Candi Dasa: 375,000 rupiah
Bali airport to Jimbaran: 80,000 rupiah, 100,000 rupiah to the Four Seasons (far southern end of Jimbaran)
Bali airport to Kerobokan: 90,000
Bali airport to Nusa Dua: 135,000, 140,000 rupiah for the Nikko
Bali airport to Padang Bai: 350,000
Bali airport to Sanur: 125,000
Bali airport to Seminyak: 90,000
Bali airport to Ubud: 250,000

Other popular requests (estimates on the meter):
Kuta to Canggu: 70,000 rupiah
Kuta to Tanah Lot: 120-150,000 rupiah
Sanur to Candi Dasa: 250,000 rupiah

Bali taxis off the meter
All taxis are supposed to use the meter and we always suggest that if your taxi driver refuses to use the meter, use a different taxi. However, if you want to use a taxi off the meter, use the above prices as a guideline.

This is NOT a taxi

This is NOT a taxi.

For longer trips, taxis will often offer to wait for you so they can get the return fare as well. This can be a good deal, especially if you’re headed somewhere that doesn’t get a lot of passing taxi traffic — Canggu springs to mind. Taxi drivers will offer to either leave the meter running (if they’re using it in the first place!), or just agree on an hourly fee — 30,000-50,000 rupiah per hour is more than reasonable.

    Hi Stuart
    This is great info – loved the ‘this is NOT a taxi’ caption, I’m sure there’s many others that fit that bill. Do you know roughly how much the fare would be from Pantai Seseh, Canggu to Ubud? Thanks!

  2. adminon 13 Jul 2011 at 8:58 am

    Hi Ella,

    I’ve not done that by cab but would guess around 100,000 give or take. Perhaps a little more.

  3. Martinaon 24 Jul 2011 at 12:05 am

    How much is the transfer from the airport to balian beach? We are 4 adults and 2 children (13 and 16 years) and need the transport at the 21st of august around 7 pm.
    Thanks a lot in advance, Martina

  4. adminon 24 Jul 2011 at 9:17 am

    Hi Martina,

    I’d guess around the 250,000-300,000 rupiah mark — but if you have your lodgings arranged already in Balian then contact them as well and see what they’ll do an airport pickup for.

    Enjoy Balian – it is a lovely spot.


  5. Jonnyon 19 Aug 2011 at 5:05 am

    hey stuart

    thanks for your list, especially the one from the airport. can use that for our holiday in september. let’s see if the fares are the same :)


  6. deepaon 22 Aug 2011 at 4:23 pm

    pls provide fare from airport to seminyak urgently

  7. adminon 22 Aug 2011 at 5:21 pm

    Hi Deepa,
    The fare is listed above — 60,000 rupiah.

  8. Helenon 30 Aug 2011 at 4:08 am

    Hi there-
    Do you suggest that I get rupiah currency at the DPS airport on arrival or should I get it in the States prior to landing in DPS? I assume the taxi only accepts rupiah currency. Thanks for your help.

  9. adminon 19 Sep 2011 at 6:47 am

    The exchange kiosks at the airport offer a poor rate, but if you’re just changing $20 for the cab, that’s no big deal. I’d exchange the rest of your money once in Bali proper. (apols for the late reply!)

  10. Ykon 28 Dec 2011 at 10:25 pm


    May I know how much from the DPS airport to Hard Rock Bali Hotel n The Westin Nusa Dua? Thx

  11. adminon 29 Dec 2011 at 6:29 am

    To the Hard Rock should be around 45,000 rupiah and Nusa Dua 95,000 rupiah. You can see the full pricelist here:

  12. Ykon 29 Dec 2011 at 5:39 pm

    Thank you for your information! ^_^

  13. Gauravon 03 Sep 2012 at 5:55 am

    Hi, I need to go to grand balisani suites from airport which is close to Kerobokan. I will have my wife and infant child with me…. what is the fare together for all 3 of us…. the hotel is providing one way airport to hotel for $8 per head…. which one to choose?

  14. adminon 21 Sep 2012 at 2:03 pm

    Sorry Guarav, just saw this. Just get a cab from the airport – will be priced by car – not by person.



  15. Akshaton 02 Oct 2012 at 1:52 pm

    Hi, Can anyone help me with regards to price for a taxi from Airport to Banjar (Eco Village Bali)??

    The hotel is quoting 400000 Rp


  16. adminon 03 Oct 2012 at 4:49 am

    Hi Akshat,

    Bali Eco is out near Kintamani, 400,000 doesn’t strike me as all that unreasonable, given a taxi to Ubud from airport is 200 and it is over twice the distance.

  17. travelleron 30 Oct 2012 at 11:57 pm


    Do you know if the rates are more after midnight? Is it 50% more or anything like that? Or do the prices you list still hold after midnight. (My plane is arriving late that night.)


  18. adminon 31 Oct 2012 at 3:20 am


    I don’t think there is an after-hours surcharge as I’ve got a cab as late as 1am and there wasn’t any extra charge.

  19. mehrson 18 Nov 2012 at 2:56 pm

    How much would the cab take from hotel puri wulandari in ubud to kamuela villas in seminyak…the hotel has offered a pick up for IDR 355,000…should I book with them or just take a cab given I’ ll be having 2 big suitcases…

  20. adminon 20 Nov 2012 at 3:55 am

    Hi mehrs,
    You’ll pay 200-250,000 from central Ubud to Seminyak for a private taxi so given your hotel is quite isolated, well out of central Ubud, that doesn’t sound totally unreasonable to me.

  21. jezon 21 Dec 2012 at 5:19 am

    hi! great site.
    are there any bemos that go from kuta to canggu?

  22. Rojion 11 Apr 2013 at 5:54 am

    How much would it be from ubud to bingin beach? Ea

    Please help! :) ???
    Thank you!!!

  23. adminon 14 Apr 2013 at 11:47 am

    Hi Roji,

    I’m guessing here, but probably in the region of 250,000 – 300,000 rupiah — it’s at least a two hour drive.


  24. Eamonn Grayon 15 Apr 2013 at 1:58 pm

    Landing Monday at 17:00 what should the fare be to Grand Kuta Hotel

  25. adminon 16 Apr 2013 at 1:35 am

    @Eamonn — 45,000-50,000 rupiah.

  26. Amyon 12 May 2013 at 12:08 pm


    I am looking for an estimate cost of how much a taxi would be from the Conrad Bali hotel in Tanjung Benoa to Sanur?


  27. adminon 17 May 2013 at 2:51 am

    @Amy, around 150,000 – 200,000 on the meter — more if the traffic is bad.

  28. Joon 11 Jun 2013 at 10:39 pm

    Hi, how much should I expect for taxi from nusa dua to kuta?

  29. Marianion 24 Jun 2013 at 1:44 pm

    Great list!
    Any idea how much is taxi to Amed?

  30. adminon 25 Jun 2013 at 12:26 am

    @Jo – Around the 100,000 – 120,000 rupiah mark

    @Mariani – Not sure on that one — it is 335,000 to Candi Dasa, so (I’d guess) 400,000 – 450,000 rupiah. If you have accommodation in Amed pre-booked I’d ask them for a rate for an airport pickup – could be cheaper than a taxi.

  31. Marianion 25 Jun 2013 at 4:07 pm

    Hi thanks for the info.
    Hotel got back with 450000.
    Another taxi company offered 575000.

    It’s a no brainer!
    So glad I stumbled on yr site.

  32. Andrewon 20 Aug 2013 at 1:32 am

    What should I expect to pay for a transport from Semara in Seminyak to Jimbaran, time to have dinner and return? Also would you know what time it starts to get busy the beach restaurants in Jimbaran? I want to get there before sunset but want to make sure we get a seat.

  33. Dewi Astution 20 Aug 2013 at 7:23 am

    Hi everyone,

    sorry to say, but these prices are already very old, since this article the fuel prices were raised twice!
    when this article was made it was still 2.500rp/liter, now its 6.500/liter!
    so please do not count on these prices anymore!
    Our guest(from Tanah Cinta Village) request a transfer from airport to Ubud, and from viewing this she thinks that 195.000rp is the price now.
    (more like 450.000rp is now the price)


  34. Samantha Brownon 24 Aug 2013 at 4:59 am

    Prices were at 4,500 rupiah when we wrote this piece, and went up to 6,500 around June 22, 2013. If anyone can snap a photo of the airport prices before we get there again, that’d be great…

  35. Lisa Greenemon 18 Nov 2013 at 6:50 am

    Hi there, how much would a taxi from Legian to Uluwatu usually cost?

  36. Jennyon 29 Jan 2014 at 9:29 am

    Is the fare base on per person or per car?

  37. Arianeon 27 Apr 2014 at 8:26 am


    Approximatly, do you know how much a cab ride would be from Ubud to Munduk ? (Great site btw :)


  38. budhaon 03 May 2014 at 11:56 am

    hi guys
    wonderful trail of info for anyone travelling into Bali – reporting live from the wonderful sea washed beachesof NusaDua-the cab fares have def gone up from the list photographed above – the pricing list isnt anywhere to be seen at the counter – i did end up paying 1,50,000 Rp from the airport to my hotel in Nusa Dua – the cab drivers also ask you to pay an additional toll fee of 10,000 rp to hasten the trip by driving thru a tolled freeway – you may choose not to avail the option n use the non toll road if 5 additonal mins dont make a difference –

  39. Lizaon 03 Jul 2014 at 10:46 am

    Thanks for the info! We’re planning a trip to Candidasa in a couple of weeks. A friend is offering Rent-a-car for 500,000 rupiah per day so I’m glad I saw your site. I’ll just avail of that 8 hour car service then, as your list says 375,000 rph fare to Candidasa. Many thanks!!!

    Hi everyone,

    If you want the best advice from a traveler that is interested in saving you from being ripped off, or if you want to avoid arguing with rude taksi drivers at the airport, just go up to the International departure area in the glass lifts, and go out to where all the cars and buses are arriving. Grab yourself a BLUEBIRD Taksi. They are honest and always use their meter, but they are not permitted to work the airport like the rude rip-off guys down at the arrivals area, probably because they are honest and the others don’t want you to know the truth about the fares.

    When in Bali, always grab the Bluebird taksi’s, be careful with the others, some try to make themselves look like a Bluebird taksi to trick you, but be warned if you take anything but Bluebird, you may be asked to pay what the driver wants you to pay, and not what the ride actually cost.
