It is more expensive than hiring a scooter because you also have to pay for the driver's time. A driver can cost around 500K IDR to 1.5 Million IDR per day. It all depends on how long you need them for and where you would like to go.
Renting A Car In Bali
If you want all the freedom of getting around in Bali on a scooter, but none of the potential bumps and scrapes that can come along with it, then why not rent a car? This option is also great for families who are taking a trip to Bali. It'll help you get everyone to all the beautiful spots you've saved on your Google Maps, safe and sound. You can't scoot through the Bali traffic like you can on a bike, but at least everyone is that little bit safer. A car rental is definitely one of the safest ways to travel, but you still have to be careful of the busy roads and dreaded potholes.
Depending on the car you want, and how long you have it for will dictate how much you spend. As a rough guide, you can expect to pay about 500K IDR per day to hire a car.
