Whether you are flying or travelling by train or car, getting to that holiday destination can be a hassle.

Shopping and Travel Tips for Bali

When you go to Bali on holiday it is highly likely that you will want to check out the shops because it is always fun to take at least a few things home from your holiday. Likewise, you can’t get around Bali without some form of transport, so here are some tips for both these essential holiday pursuits.

  • If you stay in one of the many villa options that are available for accommodation, a car service may be available. You can have the car and driver for 8 hours and it will only cost you around 60 NZD. When you think of the places you can go and things you can see in this time, it’s a bargain, especially if you go shopping. The driver stays with the car and so all the stuff you purchase will be safe there, instead of you having to carry it around. Book the driver yourself instead of through the villa to ensure he gets all the money.
