As a rental company, we will allow you to rent from us with any driving license issued from any country.

There is no problem with renting a car or scooter from us. However, it will be a problem with the Police as they regularly proceed with random road checks.

As per the Indonesian law, you must have an International Driving License or an Indonesian Driving License in order to be allowed to drive on the roads in Indonesia. As long as you know the risk (to get a ticket on your unlucky day) and take full responsibility, we will let you rent from us.

Please note that a driving license issued by any country is NOT considered as an International Driving License unless stated « International Driving Permit ». So it’s up to you to verify whether your driving license is International or not.

Unfortunately no. Our service for ATV adventures is strictly reserved for off-road adventures, supervised by our instructors and not for daily use on the road. For daily use, we offer car and scooter rental instead.

As per the Indonesian law, ATVs are not allowed for normal use as daily transportation on the road. ATVs are only used for tourist attraction purposes, on a route that is already predetermined by our company.

We understand that this might not the same in other countries but we do NOT rent out our ATVs for any reason.
