Do you recommend travel insurance? While not required, we highly recommend all travelers get travel insurance for their trip to protect themselves from the unknown! Check out travel insurance options from our partner, worldnomads.com or from a provider of your choice.
How much should I pack? As we will be using shared transfers and spaces throughout our tour we recommend all travelers pack as lightly as possible. Please review our luggage restrictions below.
What does public transportation look like? The most common means of transport for the locals is the bus because it is very cheap. On the smaller islands, it's easy and cheap to rent a motorbike or a car. It's great if you want to go off exploring by yourself, at your own speed. Finally, there is also the train if you are on the islands of Java and Sumatra.
Is Uber or Lyft available? Not anymore, however, there is a replacement ride share called 'Grab' which uses an app, screens their drivers, allows payment through the app and tends to be cheaper than normal taxis. FYI: hotels have restrictions on what taxi companies or if Grab can pick up at their location.
