Can a foreigner rent a scooter in Bali?
Firstly, renting a scooter in Bali requires an international driving licence. Chances are that most rentals, much less private rentals, won't even ask you if you know how to drive a bike. It is strongly advised not to break the law and to use a bike if you have a licence and are confident in your driving skills.
Secondly you should be aware of the local rules and regulations, to avoid tickets and other inconveniences. The two-wheelers can appear chaotic and unpredictable if you are not used to the conditions.
Thirdly, to avoid problems with the quality of the vehicle or unexpected extra costs, it is advisable to rent a bike from a trusted rental agency that will include insurance in the price and will make sure that your scooter is in good technical condition.
Finally, it is worth mentioning that bikes are a convenient way to get around Bali and many foreigners prefer them to cars and taxis. However, road safety precautions should always be taken when using a scooter, such as wearing a helmet and close-fitting clothing.
