Travel Insurance for Bali
Paradise for many, Bali is a beautiful, laid-back all-rounder when it comes to holiday destinations. Indonesia’s most-loved island is rich in culture and amazing religious temples. The island is also home to picture-perfect volcanic mountains and magnificent beaches.
You name it; it’s there! However, one thing you will need is a comprehensive travel insurance policy to ensure you have everything covered for your trip to Bali. Here’s what you should keep in mind:
Do I Need Travel Insurance for Bali?
Yes, it’s never a good idea to travel without insurance!
Proper medical care is available in the cities and urban areas but 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 who need emergency treatment while travelling and you’re exposing yourself to life-changing medical bills. The only answer is comprehensive travel insurance for Bali which protects you against these costs.

Healthcare in Bali
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.
Dial 118 and ask for an ambulance if you need medical assistance.

Tips When Visiting Bali
Locals will speak Balinese, which is a language native to the island only, 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. The list of participating immigration checkpoints is available here.
If you want to stay for more than 30 days (up to 60 days), you should apply for a visa on arrival.
