Indonesia's main international airport is Jakarta Airport (Soekarno-Hatta) . In the last decade, it has received, on average, over 40 million passengers each year. However, the airport is pretty small – so it can get busy at times, which is why it is so important that you are able to just grab your luggage and get going on your trip – there is nothing worse than waiting around while you arrange transport to your hotel, so getting yourself a rental car is the best option when visiting Indonesia.
In the airport terminal itself, you will find some of the biggest names in car rental there is, such as Europcar, AVIS and TRAC Astra Rent a Car. Given how popular the airport is, we would always recommend booking online before you arrive. Not only will this give you a chance to choose exactly what car you want, without disappointment, but it will also save you a bit of money too.
If you’re looking to save even more money on your trip, we’d recommend skipping renting a car at the airport all together. Although it is the most convenient option, you can save a lot of money if you decide to rent and collect a car when you get into the cities of Indonesia. Jakarta is a great place to find a rental car, as there are over 20 rental companies to choose from – including those at the airport and more local agencies.
Keep in mind, however, that the companies in Indonesia itself may not accept your currency, so you will need to make sure you have the correct amount on you. We’d advice avoiding paying by car, just for your own safety, and get some cash in the currency of Indonesia (which is Indonesian Rupiah).
There are some Indonesian driving rules that you should know about before driving in the country, especially since there are some rules that apply to those who have rented a car. To rent a car in Indonesia you have to be at least 23 years old and have an up-to-date driver’s license. It is also necessary that the car has a mandatory safety kit when driving in Indonesia, so before renting the car make sure that the agency offers this service.
Some other tips to consider when driving in Indonesia:
When choosing a car rental agency, you must make sure they offer the most up to date insurance policies, have a good selection of cars, and always check the reviews before you choose a company.
Jakarta Car Rental is a great company for anyone looking to save a little money, while also having a wide selection of cars available to them. Not only do they have excellent reviews, but they also have a wide selection of cars for you to choose from. From people carriers for a family of 4 or more to small vehicles for one, you can find everything with this company. Along with this, they even offer a car and driver rental service, in case you want to visit more remote locations and you don't feel able to drive yourself.

If you are in Indonesia, we’d recommend taking a trip to Kota Tua, the old historic center of the city of Jakarta. Having been a colony for so many years, you will find different colonial buildings that will transport you back in time.
For those interested in religious history, without a doubt should visit the Great Istiqlal Mosque. It is one of the most important Muslim temples in the world and has a capacity for over 120,000 people, so each year, at the end of Ramadan, it is filled with prayer and worship. In front of the mosque is the Jakarta Cathedral, which is also a must-visit. The fact that they are so close shows you how tolerant the religion is in Indonesia, so take the opportunity to visit both places – however, make sure you are respectful of both religions and these are both practicing religious buildings.
