Insurance

It is compulsory for all groupies to have travel insurance whilst traveling with Wanderlands Bali. Traveling is all about adventure and experiencing the unknown. Unfortunately, this can mean that some things don’t always go to plan from time to time. Whilst you are in the safe hands of your group leader from the moment you walk through arrivals to the end of the tour, planes can sometimes be delayed, luggage can go missing and accidents can happen. Your group leader will check your documents at the beginning of the tour to ensure you are correctly covered and you can travel with peace of mind.

It is important your travel insurance covers you for the following:

  • Medical expenses.
  • Missed flights.
  • Luggage loss and theft.
  • All activities included in the tour.

If you haven’t got your insurance arranged yet, simply get in touch with us and we can help you arrange it. Call: (+61) 2 8541 6557 or Email: [email protected]

Firstly, pack light!

Bali has lots of western shops so if you forget anything, fear not! You can easily buy anything else you may need.

Packing checklist:

  • Passport
  • Flight tickets
  • Credit cards
  • Printed out copy of your travel insurance documents
  • Camera & charger
  • Phone & charger
  • A light rain jacket
  • Comfortable shoes

Where can I purchase insurance?

Travel is all about adventure and the unknown, but that doesn’t mean you should be too risky. It is imperative that all Wanderlands Groupies are covered by travel insurance and because we have been doing this for a while, and know exactly the type of cover you will need, we recommend booking yours through World Nomads.

What are the room allocations?

Twin or double rooms.

Is there Wi-Fi available in our hotels?

Yes but try to remember that some times it’s good to disconnect for a bit, so if you do find yourself without access try and make the most of it.

What kind of accommodation do we stay in?

We stay in a 4 star hotel, all rooms have air conditioning, TV’s, hot and cold showers and all the other amenities you would expect.

Do I need a visa to enter the country?

If you have any issues and queries about Visas, we do recommend checking the embassy website, and using the information provided on our website.

Are flights included in the price?

No however we are happy to help you with advice on what flight you should get.

When is the earliest I can fly after the tour?

Bare in mind that we finish our tour in Ubud and takes about 2 hours to get to Denpasar (Bali) Airport. Flights departing from Denpasar shouldn’t be booked before 6pm on Day 7 as any flights departing earlier may result in you missing out on some activities and no one wants that!

Ubud

Is airport pick up included?

Yes, airport pick up can be arranged free of charge for those arriving on the start date or 1 day before. If you have pre nights accommodation at our hotel in Ubud and would like to be picked up more than 1 day before your start date, we can organize our driver to pick you up from the airport and drop you off at the guest house. This will need to be paid locally to our driver and will be roughly between 350,000rp- 500,000rp.

How do I get back to the airport?

We can arrange you a driver and will be roughly between 350,000rp- 500,000rp, paid directly for him.
Or you could catch a local bus to the airport for 90,000rp but it is only at set times. 10:30, 13:30 and 18:00 but times can change.

How much spending money do I need for my 7 days?

We can never give you an exact spending money figure as everybody spends differently! All your accommodation, activities and during your 7 days with Wanderlands Bali Retreat is paid for so you will just need money for food, drinks and some shopping. Meals are roughly 60,000rp-120.000rp, drinks are roughly 20,000rp-50,000rp.

Numbers of groups (age limit and size)

The size of our groups vary, but on average they range from around 6-10 people and have an array of ages from between 18-30+. Our tour encourages solo travellers as well as groups and couples so there is a mix of solo travellers, groups and couples on our tour.
