We will again spent our holiday in Sanur (Bali) however being disabled (wheelchairuser) I bring along my foldable wheelchair which consequently my wife has to push.
To make things easier I am looking for the possibility to rent an electric mobility scooter. All suggestions are welcome.

    I did some checking around for you and I’m afraid I can’t find what you are asking about. In many years of living here I’ve never seen one in Bali.

    To be honest, Bali is not the easiest place for the handicapped to navigate. Very few hotels or restaurants, a tiny number to be sure, have wheelchair access ramps.

    However, I have seen folks in wheelchairs getting about with the assistance of someone who can push their chair for them.

    With that thought in mind, what might be your best option is to hire a local Balinese to act as your driver, escort and wheelchair handler while you are here in Bali. I know several very able bodied young men who would be able to do this as well as to act as your driver and guide. The English skills for each of them is excellent.

    If you care to write to me on the VT e-mail, I’ll fill you in with more details.

    Hay there, thats great, I am going to travel over alone in November and I use a wheelchair, I can walk alittle on sticks to enter in and out of buildings but having someone come along to help will be great. I love culture and arts so I am going to challenge Ubud. I would be happy living in a hut with a family :) anyway can not wait to get there
