"Renting bikes/jeeps in Lombok" Lombok Transportation Tip by batgirl1001

Lombok Transportation: 54 reviews and 89 photos

Just a point to note that if you are renting a bike (which is quite cheap at 30,000R or so a day) or a jeep---> Lombok is going through some shortages of gas.

Everywhere you go in Senggigi and in the city, you will notice long queues for petrol or empty gas stations.

I am told that this is recent ,due in parts to the high fuel prices worldwide and the Indonesian government's effort to ration petrol consumption.

In fact, some people buy huge quantities of petrol only to see later for a slightly higher price.

Hence if you plan to rent jeeps or bikes, remember about the fuel shortage and fill up whenever possible, especially if you plan long-distance travel. It doesn't pay to be out of gas in someplace remote and having to pay scalper's prices for a bottle.
