Indonesia has a number of attractions that draw in tourists all year long. When you vacation in the country, you might want to head to Waterbom Bali, a water park, where you can beat the heat. You can also visit the Borobudur Temple, the Prambanana Temples, Ijen Crater, and Tirta Gangga.

Renting a vehicle

Renting a vehicle will help make it easier to get around the cities and to get to all of the attractions you want to visit. It’s a convenient way to get around. The minimum age to drive in Indonesia is 17 years old. Drivers who rent a vehicle need to have their original driver’s license, passport, and rental papers readily available. You will also need to have an international driving permit.

Each vehicle needs to have a warning road triangle, a fluorescent safety jacket, a fire extinguisher, first aid kit, spare tire, jack, and iron. Make sure the vehicle you rent has all of these items. You should also get the phone number and emergency contact number for the rental agency.

Road conditions and safety

The roads around the cities will generally have clear signage and markings. They also tend to be in good condition, so you do not have to worry about large potholes or other issues. However, when you start to head to the rural areas, you will find that the road conditions deteriorate. Even when the rural roads have two lanes, they are not usually marked, and they do not have lights. Most of the signs are in Indonesian, although in the cities, you can sometimes find those that are both in Indonesian and English.

Everyone in the front seat is required to wear a seatbelt. The country has a zero tolerance policy for driving under the influence, and you are not allowed to use a mobile phone while you are driving.

Drivers need to be careful on the roads, as the local drivers do not always pay attention to the traffic laws. Many will use the shoulders of the road as passing lanes, which can be very dangerous. Make sure that you are wary of what other drivers are doing. Try not to drive at night, as many vehicles do not turn on their lights, or they may have headlights that are the wrong color.

The speed limits

Always obey the posted speed limits when driving in Indonesia. The following are the speed limits for different areas.

  • Built up areas – 50 km/h
  • Highways – 100 km/h (60 to 80 km/h for trucks
  • Roads – 80 km/h

Main toll roads

The country of Indonesia has a number of toll roads. The cost of using the roads varies, so you will want to check the latest information when you rent your vehicle. The rental company should have information on the current cost of the tolls. The following are some of the main toll roads.

  • Jakarta-Serpong toll road
  • Jakarta-Tangerang toll road
  • Semarang-Solo toll road
  • Surabaya-Madura toll road

When you rent a car in Indonesia, you can visit all of the areas that you want to see far easier than when you rely on public transportation.

Hyundai Accent - Brake Pads Replacement (Front) - Albuquerque, New Mexico
I had an appointment to have brakes/rotors done. Augustine is a very nice guy. Personable and polite! He came 30 minutes early for the appointment, and asked me if he could come early before he came. Top quality, will use him again for rear brakes/rotors in a few weeks.
