Public Transport

Public transport road:

Bus: A public bus runs from the airport to central Denpasar (journey time: 50 minutes) but its departure times can be infrequent and sporadic (ask at the airport’s information desk for assistance). For this reason most visitors choose to use either a shuttle or taxi service to travel to their destination.

Shuttle: A cheaper alternative to the taxis is an abemo (shared minibus), which can generally be found a short distance from the car park. In addition, many hotels operate courtesy shuttles to and from the airport.

Taxi: Taxis are available outside Arrivals and operate on a pre-paid voucher system. Vouchers are sold at the official taxi desk close to the airport exit. Expect to pay roughly Rp. 80,000 for a journey to Kuta and around Rp. 125,000 to Denpasar. Tickets can be booked online or at the airport. Journey times vary considerably depending on traffic.
