Do You Need Travel Insurance for Bali?
Travel insurance for Bali is essential. Indonesia’s most-loved island is rich in culture, picture-perfect mountains and magnificent beaches, but whilst proper medical care is available in cities, it can be very expensive.
In remote areas, treatment of severe injuries or illness isn’t likely to be available, and you may need to be medically evacuated.
Add into the mix that UK travel insurers help 420 people a day for emergency treatment abroad and you’re exposing yourself to life-changing medical bills.
The only answer is comprehensive Bali travel insurance for your peace of mind!

- How long your holiday is
- Your pre-existing medical conditions and the likelihood of you needing treatment abroad
- Your age
- The level of travel insurance benefits being offered to you offered to you
How do you know if you're fit to travel to Bali?
If you are unsure whether you’re fit to travel it is best to ask your doctor, but you will not need to provide us with a certificate.
We may require a letter from your doctor in the event of a claim, confirming you were fit to travel when you bought your cover from us.
Should you choose single or annual multi-trip travel insurance?
Here’s how to decide…
→ Single trip travel insurance: Covers a one-off holiday on selected dates. You can be away for up to 92 days.
→ Annual multi-trip travel insurance: Get cover for any number of trips in a year! The perfect choice if you’re planning to holiday a few times in the next 12 months, as it’s cheaper than buying several single trip policies.
Please note the maximum trip length does change between annual multi-trip policies.
As an example, you can travel up to 45 days per trip on AllClear Gold and Gold Plus annual multi-trip cover, which can be easily extended up to 55 days for a small added cost.
More Information About Bali Healthcare
Bali is a volcanic island. The ash pollution can sometimes reduce the quality of the air, which can cause health problems or affect pre-existing medical conditions such as asthma. There are some useful tips on how to protect yourself from breathing volcanic ash on the International Volcanic Health Hazard Network (IVHHN) website.
The TravelHealthPro website states that vaccinations for Hepatitis A, Polio, Tetanus and Typhoid are likely to be recommended for Bali and that you should visit your GP at least 4 weeks before you travel. If you’re planning to holiday in Indonesia for longer than 4 weeks, a certificate of vaccination against poliomyelitis given 4-52 weeks before departure may be required on exit.
Bali’s telephone number for emergency medical assistance is 118.
Travel Tips When Visiting Bali
Locals will speak Balinese, a language native to the island, as well as Indonesian.
The currency is the Indonesian Rupiah (IDR), and most small local businesses will be cash only.
Local Laws and Customs
During Balinese New Year (called Nyepi), which usually falls in March, everyone in Bali observes a day of silence. Residents stay indoors, turn off lights and making no noise. Ngurah Rai International Airport is closed for the entire day. However, emergency services and hospitals still operate.
British Citizens don’t need a visa to holiday in Indonesia for up to 30 days if you enter and leave via an airport, port or land border crossing which is part of the visa waiver scheme. On the embassy website, click Visa-Free for short visit (30 days) (show/hide), then IMMIGRATION checkpoint – information correct at time of writing.
If you want to stay for more than 30 days (up to 60 days), you should apply for a visa on arrival.
