Driver for 12 am

My flight lands at Denpasar at 12am and my hotel is in Uluwatu. I was wondering if you all suggest booking a driver since it's so late at night or would I be fine finding a taxi driver?

I contacted my hotel for a driver and they said they can arrange one but I'd be better off finding a driver at the airport for a cheaper price.

I would love to have a driver so there won't be any trouble with finding the hotel and because it is so late, it'd be quicker to have someone ready for us when we land but again, because of the time, I would think it might be difficult to find someone that's willing to work so late.

Your flight ETA is midnight. Allow up to 90 minutes to get through the Airport, the longest wait being to get your luggage. You will be tired, and will not want the hassel of negotiating a price. Then you have around 30 minutes drive to get to Ulluwatu.

I suggest you get the driver from the hotel. He will know exactly where to go, and the hotel price should be around $25.

Another thought. Check online for Golden Bird, which is the Limo branch of Bluebird Taxis.

Large taxi company, very efficient. Their price may be cheaper.

Get a hotel transfer, or organize a driver beforehand by the time you get out, the taxi rank at DPS will be closed

We thought about the same thing too. We will bring our children. Do not want to deal with the taxi outside. Since the taxi counter closed at 10 pm. The option for us is either ask the hotel to pick us up or get a golden bird. I have used Golden Bird at the airports so many times, very happy with their professional service.

Please contact Golden Bird (blue bird's group). their email is mkt.gb.bali@bluebirdgroup.com. We reserved a Toyota Innova car (the cheapest) for Rp 214.500 (around USD 17) one way from the airport to Sanur in the middle of the night. The driver will hold a sign with my name on it. You will pay to the driver once you arrive at your hotel. They are very reliable, safe and very professional. Highly recommend it.

Just one more option to those already given. Bali has drivers all over the place and with many flights departing and arriving in the later hours, many would be available even at the time you mention.

My mate Wayan always looks after me and i always recommend him to family and friends. I'm sure if you dropped him a message your arrival time and hotel details he would be able to look after you :)
