Ensure that each person travelling in your party (including children) is covered by adequate travel insurance. While Bali, NTB and NTT offer a great array of experiences and activities, it is important that your travel insurance covers everything you could potentially engage in.
Carefully read the advice under Services for Australians and ensure that people travelling in your party are aware of the potential problems that may be encountered.
