Ubud Airport: Transfers and Taxi
Transfers from Ubud Airport
There is no airport in Ubud. The nearest air hub is in Denpasar, 37 kilometers away. Transfers from the airport of Denpasar will take you to Ubud and to the popular resorts of Nusa Dua, Seminyak, Kuta, and to the temple on the edge of the Uluwatu cliff. With Kiwitaxi, you can reach the picturesque Tegallalang rice terraces which are on the UNESCO List.
Advantages of the Kiwitaxi transfer:
A car waits for you at the airport exit. A bus stop is located at the domestic terminal. To reach it, you will have to walk for about 10 minutes. In extreme heat and with heavy luggage in hand, a walk will be far from pleasant to you.
The transfer will get you directly to any place in Bali. By public transport, you can get directly only to Kuta, Sanur, Jimbaran and Nusa Dua.
Not a single minute wasted. Transfer arrives exactly at the appointed time. Since public transport in Bali is very poorly developed, there are a lot of people who want to leave the airport by taxi. So you will have to wait in line for a free car.
Taxi from Ubud Airport
At Ubud airport, there are several types of taxi:
Prepaid taxi. This is the official airport service. You pay a fixed cost for a trip at the counter and wait for a free car to arrive. Since this is the safest taxi, there are a lot of people who want to book a car: you will have to wait for your turn.
Grab. Actually this is a mobile app, but there has been a service desk at the airport since recently. Many tourists complain that the drivers of this service refuse to go at the price indicated in the app and increase the final cost.
Private drivers. It’s not safe to go with them. You will be lucky if they are just getting to your destination in circles. Some of them often drive you away in an unknown direction and then require more money for driving you to the right address.
BlueBird. This is a reliable service, but they are not allowed to enter the airport territory. You will have to walk to the highway. This option only suits those who travel light.
The cost of a taxi to Ubud is approximately 360,000 rupees.
Public Transport from Ubud Airport
Buses of Sarbagita bus company
Buses from Ubud Airport run along two routes: to Nusa Dua via Jimbaran (at 09:15, 13:15 and 17:15) and to Batubulan bus station, from which minibuses go to Ubud via Denpasar and Kuta (at 11:00, 15:00 and 19:00).
The stop is located at the exit of the domestic airline terminal. The fare is 3,500 rupees. The buses have luggage compartment and air conditioning.
These are microbuses for 12 passengers which run along a certain route and stop anywhere on the way on-demand. Bemos are popular with locals, so there are a lot of people who want to jump on these microbuses. Be prepared that the ride will be very slow.
A bemo ride costs 4,000 rupees, but foreigners are often charged more which is very difficult to predict.
Make sure to ask the driver where the bus or bemo goes. This is the only way to find out the exact itinerary. Buy a ticket from the driver, but be sure to have some coins and small bills: most likely there will be no change for you.
Booking an Airport Transfer from Ubud Airport
Booking an airport transfer should be made at least 24 hours before your trip. But you can leave a request at any time and we will try to find a free driver for you.
To book, fill out the booking form on our website:
Indicate the date and time of the trip so our driver can arrive on time.
Calculate the number of passengers and baggage pieces that you will take with you. This is necessary to define which transfer class suits you. We have economy class sedans, cars for business delegations, and even minibuses for group trips.
Order a bottle of water - it will not be superfluous on a tropical island. An additional hour of waiting is also useful for you: you can spend up to 2 hours at the Ubud Airport passport control and the Kiwitaxi driver waits only for 1 hour for free.
