Private Driver and Luggage

Hello!

I was wondering if anyone can tell me if it is generally considered safe to leave your luggage in the car with your private hired driver while you go out and sight-see? We will be traveling to Bali in October and we would like to use our "transfer day" from our southern hotel to our hotel in Ubud as a chance to see some sights as we plan on hiring a private driver. What do we do with our luggage? Leave it in the car with the driver? Or do we have to drag it along at every stop?

Thanks in advance for any advice!

No, leave it in the car with your driver to look after. Many of us have been in the same situation.

Perfectly fine to leave luggage in car with your driver. Have done it in the past with no problems

No worries. Just ask your driver to take care of it and all will be good.

Get a recommended driver that’s registered, l wouldn’t use one off the street that you don’t have as a recommendation. Also best to get one from Ubud to collect you then he won’t be in a hurry to drop you off to get back to wherever you came from.
