Top 10 tips for safe travel in Bali

  1. Check to make sure the regions you wish to visit are not listed as ‘Reconsider your need to travel’ or ‘Do not travel’.
  2. Get a health check-up before you leave home and ask your doctor about vaccinations you may need for Indonesia. These may include DTP (Tetanus, Diphtheria and Pertussis), Hepatitis A and B, and Typhoid.
  3. Familiarise yourself with the local laws, culture and customs.
  4. Save the phone number and address of the Australian consulate or embassy nearest to your accommodation.
  5. Keep both printed and digital copies of all your travel documents handy.
  6. Register your Bali trip itinerary and contact details with Smartraveller, and download the app to receive instant travel alerts and warnings.
  7. Swim and surf safely. Not all beaches are patrolled and riptides and strong currents can catch even the strongest swimmers off guard.
  8. Avoid getting Bali Belly by sticking to bottled water and avoid ice cubes and foods which may have been rinsed in local tap water.
  9. Be careful on the roads. Bali is not the place to learn how to ride a scooter or moped, so stick to registered taxi services or public transport where possible.
  10. Don't touch the monkeys!

Example Incidents~

Tony's Tummy Troubles

Tony was on holiday with friends and having a great time until he suddenly started experiencing “Bali Belly” symptoms, even though he had been very careful to drink only bottled water and eat well-cooked food. After a few miserable days stuck in his room, he decided to visit the local doctor for treatment and started to feel much better. After returning home, Tony used the online claim form to upload all the required documentation and received full reimbursement for his overseas medical treatment.


Sophie's Stairway Slip

47-year-old Sophie from Adelaide was on a retreat in Bali when she fell down a flight of stairs in the dark. As well as some nasty cuts and bruises and a mild concussion, an x-ray at the local hospital revealed she had also sustained a fracture in her foot. The Fast Cover emergency assistance team managed Sophie's case, liaised with hospital staff to cover her medical expenses and organised her return home to Australia. Sophie's policy cost less than $50 and covered the total of her medical treatment and repatriation at over $23,000 AUD.

Traveller Testimonials

Best and less!

My husband was bitten by a dog while on holiday in Bali, and one phone call solved all our questions and worries. Full support all the way and fast refund of expenses when we arrived home. I am recommending Fast Cover to all my friends.

Robo –


Amazing experience!

Fast Cover was recommended to me by a friend about one day prior to the commencement of my trip to Bali this year. I am so grateful I took her advice and took out a policy with Fast Cover. The second day of my trip to Bali my bag was stolen. Being phoneless and someone cashless, I managed to submit my claim with Fast Cover online using the online claim form. It was simple, fast and easy and I was able to continue to enjoy my two-week trip to Bali knowing my claim was being processed. I was given regular updates on the progress of my claim by Fast Cover and I received my claim amount within 10 days. I am so happy and was able to replace my phone, hassle free and didn't feel out of pocket from my experience. So happy with the service!!

Over 80 policy cheapest than any other

My elderly mum broke her arm in Bali in 2013 and Fast Cover were fantastic in looking after her. Ambulance, surgery, hospital stay and finally business class to return home with both my sister and I accompanying her. Couldn't ask for any better service. All for $200 excess. Easy to contact from overseas and follow up was the icing on the cake. I don't use any other travel insurance now.
