Top tips for hiring a car in Indonesia

  • Car hire in Indonesia offers several advantages over relying solely on public transport. The public transport system in Indonesia can be crowded, unreliable and often not well-connected to all destinations. Buses and trains may have limited schedules, making it challenging to explore off-the-beaten-path locations. Having your own vehicle provides convenience, reduces the possibility of delays and allows you to enjoy a more comfortable and personalised travel experience throughout the diverse landscapes of Indonesia.
  • For travellers looking to hire a car in Indonesia, it is important to know that the legal blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limit for driving is 0.05%. It is advisable to refrain from consuming alcohol before driving to avoid any potential legal issues or penalties. Prioritising road safety and responsible behaviour will ensure a pleasant and secure travel experience for both locals and tourists.
  • When travelling to Indonesia, it is recommended to hire a car that is suitable for the local conditions and terrain. Opting for a sturdy and reliable vehicle, such as a 4x4 or SUV, is advisable, especially if you plan to explore rural or mountainous areas. Additionally, choosing a car with good air conditioning is essential to combat the country's hot and humid climate.
  • The busiest time for car hire in Indonesia is during the peak tourist season, which falls between July and August. During these months, popular destinations like Bali and Yogyakarta witness a surge in visitors. Travellers looking to hire a car during this time should book in advance to secure availability and competitive prices. Additionally, it is crucial to be aware of traffic congestion and plan accordingly to avoid delays and inconvenience.
