There’s No Traffic

At this time of the year, normally Bali streets would be filled with motorcycles, cars and tourist busses. The traffic can make it hard to just stop when you find a cute cafe or see a store that grabs your eye, not to mention finding parking can also be a hassle. During high season it can also be hard at times to get online taxis or drivers unless you are organised and booked early.

Now, however, is the perfect time to visit because you can avoid all of that and enjoy the streets of Bali freely.

You can explore every corner of Bali by renting a motorcycle, car or a driver to anywhere, any day and anytime – hassle-free.

Destinations that would have taken hours to get to are now easier and far quicker to reach! For example when you want to explore the Bali Zoo in Gianyar from Kuta, normally you would need one to two hours of travelling time due to traffic… and now you can just spend 45 minutes tops to get there. If that isn’t a great reason to visit Bali now!

You get more holiday time and far less traffic time when you’re visiting Bali now.
