Travel Tips

Plan ahead with our useful traveltips.

Prepare yourself for a hassle-free vacation to Bali. On this page we’re sharing some of our best travel tips to paradise. We translated the most asked questions into helpful travel tips; from the moment you land on the island of the Gods all the way till your departure, we covered it all. Do you for example know where you get the best exchange rate? Or what those scratchy cards are, which are often handed out on the streets of Kuta, Legian and Seminyak? What about transportation, what’s the best way to getting around in Bali? Are you travelling with kids? Then explore the kids section for tips about nannies, kid-friendly activities and more.

Our most important tip is to not travel to Bali without insurance, we hate reading about people who are meant to be having the time of their lives and it is turning into a financial nightmare for themselves and their families. Eliminate all the risks, so you can really enjoy your well-deserved holiday.
