Beware of the blue taxi drivers and negotiate the price before even if they tell you they have a meter they will try to scam you ruthless....from the airport to our hotel t we got prices from 400.000 and we ended up paying 100.000 but they harrass you as soon as you are out of customs...bali is the worst place we visited in asia for being harrassed by taxi drivers...you say no they will follow you for 5 minutes more and even try to take your luggage...governement should make some clean up and not let them harrass tourist like that..at the airport...this is like first impression of the country!!

If your looking for a fantastic taxi driver who will look after you and has great local knowledge you need to use Ketut Mangosteen he was highly recommended to use and we will definitely use him again.
Thanks Ketut.

There is no shortage of taxi's in Bali & they constantly roam around beeping at you to try to get u into their cabs, In bali it is all about negotiating & bartering your price before you get into a taxi and make sure that you are firm with what u will be paying otherwise get into a blue taxi and demand that the metre is turned on and make sure that it stays on as many taxi drivers are totally aware of how to rip off the tourist by then turning off the meter and telling you it is broke. They will also try to take you the long way if possible to get a dearer fare if u have not negotiated your fare price before you get into the cab. Beware that they also look at how much jewellery and how u may be dressed to give you the price they want to charge you, so dress casual and down unless you want to pay more & leave the jewellery at home.
We found also that 6 taxi drivers didn't want to give us change and this is the latest scam and they tell u that they don't have change and then show u an empty wallet. Because of how they did this, we then refused to give them a tip so its a good idea to have some smaller notes with you.

Its a good idea to ask around for a good taxi driver where you are staying, we found a driver for the day would be about $AUD 55-$60 but they can try to charge a lot more if u r prepared to pay it.
Overall it is safe to use the taxi's in bali but beware that many will try to get as much out of all tourists as they can.

Taxi drivers will approach you once u come out from airport. Taxi booth quoted me IDR180,000 from airport to my hotel Le Meridien (abt 1km away fr Intercon hotel), but the young taxi driver (not attach to taxi company) quoted me only IDR100,000. You just need to ask few more, and base on your ' judgement' to choose the honest taxi. Subsequently, i engaged this young driver for IDR500,000 for 8-hour. I decided few places of interest to visit myself. He gave a suggestion on places to eat, which is very local style of eating place n authentic bali food.
