Why do I need travel insurance in Bali?

Bali – a sunny escape that offers the chance to cure your surf cravings, get your Asian food fix and explore your spiritual side. But we're going to bet you've heard some stories of things going wrong in Bali. A few of the things our customers have made a claim for from a trip to Bali are:

  • Bali belly – missing the sunset because you're rushing to the bathroom isn't ideal, but this traveller's bug can get so bad you need to go to hospital.
  • Thefts – from a bag being snatched by a runaway motorcyclist to sunnies being pinched in a monkey temple, petty theft is an issue in Bali, especially in touristy areas

Travel Safe in Bali

While Bali is relatively safe to visit, it's always good to know some tips to make sure you've always got safety on your side.

  • Dodge theft: keep valuables in a bum bag, don't leave anything worth stealing in your hotel and lock your room at night.
  • Avoid Arak: cases of methanol poisoning have been reported because of this traditional Balinese drink. Only consume drinks from a reputable bar.
  • Stay healthy: wear plenty of insect repellent and sun screen and do not drink the tap water or drinks with ice.
  • Cheeky monkeys: visiting the monkey forest in Ubud? Don't take food, hide your sunglasses and avoid grinning with your teeth at them.

Best time to travel to Bali

Bali is a pleasure to travel around at any time of year, but there are certain seasons that are cheaper and have better weather conditions.

  • Best weather: Bali is warm throughout the year, but the dry season between May and October is the most favourable.
  • Peak times: the tourist season runs from July to August, so flight and hotel prices may be higher during these months.
  • National holidays: Usually taking place in June, Idul Fitri is a two-day public holiday that marks the end of Ramadan, attracting large crowds.
