Transports to most major destinations in Flores can be arranged through your hotel, though try to book early as they do fill up.

Sample fares include Labuan Bajo 80,000 rupiah, Bajawa 80,000, Ende 180,000 and Maumere 260,000.

If your hotel can't help you, head down to where the drivers all hang out near the Sindha Hotel and ask there for a seat. Early morning is the best time to try.
