You are not required to enter stop-over countries if your stop-over is less than 48 hours.
With its soft sandy beaches, wild nightlife, sprawling rice fields, exotic cuisine, and more cultural quirks than you can shake a stick at, it’s no wonder more than 800,000 Australians are drawn to the island of Bali each year.
Despite its idyllic veneer, Bali comes with some risks and can be tough to navigate in times of trouble. We don’t like to think of holidays as risk taking ventures, but the truth is, new environments, unfamiliar territory, foreign languages and exotic foods can throw any traveller for a loop. From injuries and illnesses such as Bali belly, scooter accidents or monkey bites; to cancelled flights due to volcanic ash clouds, tsunamis and earthquakes, travel insurance is essential to protect you and your Bali holiday.
It is not compulsory to have travel insurance to enter Indonesia, however it is highly recommended. If there is only one reason you should take out travel insurance, it is for medical cover. It's important to remember that you're not covered by medicare in Indonesia and the Australian Government won't pay for medical costs or emergency evacuation should the occasion arise.
Some of Australia's favoured cheap holiday destinations can be the most expensive when it comes to accessing emergency flight access out. A medivac from Bali to Australia would set you back between $30,000 - $40,000. A travel insurance policy for 7 days is likely to cost you less than 50 bucks.
Don’t let your travel bug bite you on the bum or have your trip end in financial ruin - pack travel insurance along for the ride.
Whether you're a budget conscious backpacker, a surfer seeking waves, being tempted by the thousands of temples or seduced by sipping cocktails on a relaxed beach break, it pays to compare travel insurance policies to find the right cover for your trip.
When comparing Bali policies, it's important to consider benefits, as well as costs.
The cost of travel insurance can vary enormously! Say you’re 30 (ish) years old and you’re going to Bali for a one-week holiday. Depending on your preferred level of cover, you can expect to pay anywhere from $32 to $250.
Basic policies for around $20 – $50 you an expect (generally speaking) medical, personal liability and unexpected travel expenses.
Mid-level policies for around $30 – $60 you can get decent cover which includes benefits like medical, cancellation, personal liability as well as some cancellation and luggage cover.
Comprehensive policies for around $60 – $250 offers generous cover including medical, cancellation, personal liability, luggage, luggage delay expenses, hospital cash allowance, travel documents and unexpected travel expenses.
It will largely depend on your age and how long you're going for. Comprehensive Travel Insurance to Bali for 7 days for a 30 year old can cost as little at $35. That's peace of mind for $5 a day. A small price to pay for you to enjoy your holiday knowing you're protected should the unexpected happen.
Most travel insurance policies will cover you if you are injured in a terror attack on your holiday. But wishing to cancel your trip because you are worried about acts of war are generally not. Learn more about travel insurance and terrorosim here.
