PostSubject: boring stuff on taxi costs   Mon Aug 22, 2011 1:55 pm

Could someone give me an idea of how much a taxi or car with driver would cost from Kuta to Lembar?

Less important: Bangsal to Kuta
or Bangsal to Mataram
Mataram to Kuta

Finally any news on when the new airport opens?

Many thanks in advance for answers to any of the above.

Hi Oldpops,

From Bangsal to kuta - approx 400,000
From Bangsal to mataram - approx 150,000
From mataram to Kuta - approx 300,000
From Kuta to Lembar - approx 3000,000

If you are looking to hire a car and driver who speaks English i can help you out.

Just e-mail me and let me know if i can help you.

Cheers
Callum

To and from Kuta the going rates are

Lembar Rp250,000

Bangsal Rp350,000

Mataram Rp250,000

My husband also does transport and speaks good English, if he is not available we have other drivers we use. All charge the same rates.

You can email us on info@mimpimanis.com or call Made direct on 081 836 9950.

Hello Gemma, Glad to see Made is doing transpot now. If and when the airport opens that could become a good source income. I enjoy your website particulary when I am away from Lombok. It helps me feel connected. Out of respect to you I will try not to promote any services on my behalf that you also offer. I have tried to help with transport before but nowthat I know you offer that I won't do that. I look forward to any reports on development in Kuta you or anyone may have.

Hi Mimpi,

I don't think the rates you gave are what you would pay if you used a taxi.

No Callum taxis would be cheaper if you can find one. That is the problem. No taxis at Lembar / Bangsal or in Kuta.

there are actually taxis at lembar on a daily basis.
but you are right...a hired car and driver would be more reliable.

The taxis are not allowed to pick up inside the harbour. Travelers have to leave the harbour to get a taxi.

You were quoting more than me but then seem to question my prices so I am not sure what point you are trying to make here?

you inferred that no taxi's at all went from Lembar when in fact this is incorrect. I was merely clarifying that taxis do go from Lembar.

@ Tom - re the developments in Kuta someone suggested back in February that I make a photo record of Kuta as it is now to compare in years to come. I finally got around to it a few weeks ago and if you want to see them they are on my Facebook. Susi and I are facebook friends so you can have a look though her account.

Hi Gemma,

Is it true there are now a couple of Karaoke bars in Kuta?

Thanks Gemma. I will check that. It seems everyone in Lombok has a internet phone and uses facebook daily. I think it helps Susi cope with being away from home. She is in daily contact with friends and some family via facebook.
