Indonesia (Bali) - Travel Advice

Added 25th September 2017 - Updated 16th February 2018 - Current 12th July 2019

Some Governments advise against all but essential travel to areas of Lombok north of the main east-west route from Pamenang, which passes north of the capital Mataram across to Lombok town (Jalan H. Mansur - Jalan Jendral Sudirman - Jalan Raya Mataram-Sikur - Jalan Raya Masbagik - Jalan Raya Anjani - Jalan Kooperasi - Jalan Raya Labuhan Lombok). This area includes the Gili Islands (Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air) and the Mount Rinjani National Park, but excludes Senggigi on the west coast and Kayangan port on the east coast.

The volcano Mount Agung is located on the island of Bali, about 71 kilometres (44 miles) from the tourist destination Kuta. The exclusion zone around the summit of Mount Agung extends as far out as 4 km (2.48 miles) from the crater.

The Indonesian authorities lowered Mt. Agung’s alert status from level 4 (highest) to level 3 (standby). The authorities have indicated Mt. Agung continues to show signs of volcanic activity and the possibility of an eruption remains.


Anyone with concerns about travel in this area should contact their Booking Store for advice. 

Customers in the area are advised to follow the advice of the local authorities.
