PostSubject: Lombok here we come!   Fri Jul 30, 2010 1:33 pm

Kia ora greetings…
Great to find this forum, I use to live in Lombok Timur (Pondok Aik Manis) 12 years ago! My husband is orang sasak and we have three amazing children. I left Lombok with my family after a couple of years of being sick with malaria…Anyway… We are on our way back for a holiday in Sept/Oct to catch up with family and are looking for a car to rent for about 5 weeks. Any idea who we could rent one from???
I look forward to connecting with you all!
Very Happy

Hi Claire

Great to have you here to! Welcome to the forum

I guess it depends where you are going to be based. We have a car rental place we use in Praya for guests if that is any good for you I will get the number from Made.

Hi Claire
Suami saya orang Sasak juga. We don't have kids with each other as both of us were already a bit long in the tooth when we married. My husband has children from his previous marriage, and 5 grandchildren now. He is from Monjok Culik in Mataram. I am also counting down until I have a couple of weeks in Lombok at the end of Ramadan cheers and Damsiah goes to Lombok in a couple of weeks from now for a whole 6 weeks the lucky bugger.

When we hire a car we usually get something inexpensive from Mahsun in Senggigi. His hire business is about halfway down the main strip on the bend. Just ask around.

A Dihatsu Xenia in Praya costs Rp275,000.

It may be cheaper in Senggigi where there is more competition.

sorry, I haven't rented a car for about 3 years so I've no idea what it is now. Senggigi is generally cheaper as there is more competition. You will probably have to get there and talk to someone like mahsun to negotiate a good rate for a 5 week hire. I've lost Mahsun's phone number, if you are desperate and can wait for a few weeks, Damsiah can find out and send it to me and I can post for you.

You two are great cheers I appreciate your words of wisdom... I will sort something out in Sengiggi.
Freo, if you do get that number I would appreciate it if you could pass it on...

It's cold and wet here today, snowing on the hills, so the thought of being back in Lombok in a few weeks is WONDERFUL!
