Rent-a-car in Jakarta
Renting a car to drive in Jakarta is not a viable proposition for most people not used to this city with its horrendous, chaotic traffic. However, most rent-a-car companies can provide drivers for the rented vehicles. It takes the hassle out of the visitor and the extra service should only cost around US$20 per day, as Indonesian wages are very low, by western standards.
Ask for a driver who can speak a little English, or you'll have to go on an Indonesian language crash course! Eventually, to save the day, you can always ask the hotel Reception to write down on a piece of paper the destinations that you intend to visit.
Avis has a presence at the airport and in the city.
