General Questions

Can I know a little more about the Visa requirements?

Travelers intending to visit Bali must acquire a visa from an Indonesian Diplomatic Mission in their country. Citizens of the visa exempt countries can enter and visit Bali for a period of up to 30 days without a visa. All visitors are required to hold a passport valid for more at least 6 months and a proof of return ticket. 

Can I join the program as a solo traveler or do I have to be in a group?

Whatever suits you best! It’s completely your choice whether you want to go for a soul-searching solo adventure or some roof-raising time with your bunch of BFFs, or have a romantic getaway with your partner- our programs will accommodate you in any which way. If you are coming in a group of more than 5, we can also provide you with customized packages as well as amazing discounts.

I am a single traveler. Will I be charged a single-supplement?

Most of our adventure tours do not have a single supplement. This means that accommodation will be provided on a twin sharing basis, and if you are traveling alone, you’ll be sharing a room with another one of GDA’s traveler of the same sex. What could be better than bonding with your new travel mates and making amazing new friends along the way of your journey? 

Some tours have optional single supplement for couples and solo travelers and a private room can be availed at an extra cost. The cost and details vary by trip so we suggest you to get in touch with your coordinators regarding the same beforehand. 

Will I get to know others in my group before I travel?

If you’re traveling alone you’ll find some awesome travel mates along the way, and if you’re coming in a group, then you’ll get a chance to add a few more crazy adventurers into your gang. In case you want to get in touch with others who are traveling to Bali, you can join our Facebook Group and chitchat with your fellow travelers!

Can I get some help with buying a Medical and Travel Insurance?

You need to buy your Medical and Travel Insurance before setting out for your trip. GDA also provides the insurance facilities, at an additional cost.

What are the vaccinations I need to take for traveling in Bali?

We advise our participants to get in touch with their physicians regarding vaccination requirements and get the ones as instructed. Apart from routine vaccines, like your yearly flu shot, Varicella (chickenpox) vaccine, MMR vaccine it is recommended to take shots for Hepatitis A&B, Malaria, Typhoid, Rabies and Japanese Encephalitis for traveling in Bali. If you’re traveling to Bali from a country that is at risk from Yellow Fever, you will need to show proofs of vaccination against Yellow Fever for entering the country. 

How much extra money will I need to carry?

You will need to carry extra money for personal expenses, add-on tours, eating out while traveling in Bali. For basic personal expenses, a budget of 30-40 USD per week is more than sufficient barring the extra costs of add-on activities. If you’re planning on using credit/debit card in Bali, it is advised to let your bank know about your travels beforehand so that they don’t suspicious of your account activity. We also advise all our participants to keep an emergency fund of 200 USD only to be used in case of any emergencies, if one arises. 

What should I pack for my travels to Bali?

Bali is warm and comfortable throughout the year and the island has two distinctive seasons- The wet and the dry season. You will be on the move a lot so our advice for you is to pack light. Casual clothing is generally the way to go when you’re visiting Bali. The months of June-August are the driest with pleasant temperatures and is considered as the best time to visit the island. Apart from the essential beachwear and shorts, do pack some lightweight clothing in breathable fabrics like cotton shirts, summer dresses etc. In April and May there are occasional showers and quite many sunny days as well, but starting from November-March it will get hotter with quite heavy rains, so rain gear and some lightweight outer layers would be needed. 

Do I need to book extra nights of Hotel Accommodation before or after the tour?

Yes! We always advise our travelers to get some pre-nights and post-nights booking done if they want to explore more upon arrival or continue with their travels after the tour ends. In most cases, we can arrange additional accommodation at our starting or ending hotels, excluding European tours. If we are unable to provide you with the extra nights we will give you the name of a hotel you can contact directly. Please also note that extra accommodations must be booked outside of 30 days of departure.

Are Airport transfers included?

Most of our adventures, apart from the volunteering programs do not include Airport transfers. We advise our travelers to arrange for a Taxi on Arrival as it is the most economical and efficient way to go about this. If you would prefer a pre-arranged transfer, we can provide the same for you at an additional cost from your point of Arrival. Do get in touch with your coordinators for more information.
