Purchase a Travel Package

One of the best ways to save money on a Bali holiday is to purchase a travel package. Travel packages combine airfare with hotel reservations and sometimes even rental car reservations. Bali visitors can find great deals on round trip airfare from anywhere in the world States to Bali and excellent deals on hotels and resorts of all types when they combine the two reservations in one transaction.

All you need to do to find these Bali holiday packages is visit a popular travel website or your local travel agent and know your departure and arrival locations, the dates you will be flying and how many people will be traveling. It’s likely that there will be several deals that match your criteria. You may find that there are too many options to choose from, so it is a good idea to sort or narrow the choices by the particular city, the lodging’s star rating or by customer ratings.

Avoid the Major Tourist Cities

When looking at the travel bundles or any hotel deals, you may notice that the prices are a lot cheaper for lodging in smaller cities like Lovina, Sanur and Candidasa than in the major tourist destinations like Kuta and Seminyak. Hotel owners in the smaller resort towns are eager for your business and will often go above and beyond to provide the best service. Another benefit is that you won’t have to put up with the spring break party hounds that frequent the major cities.

Travel During the Off Season

You can save a fortune by visiting Bali during the off season. Bali’s peak season for tourists is during July and August, when Bali is flooded with visitors there to soak up the sun. Lodging managers are clamoring for business during the off season and are willing to accept rock bottom offers. You will enjoy more personal service, lower prices and top quality rooms. It’s not just the lodging managers who offer lower prices during the off-peak season. You will find that attractions and tours are cheaper during off season, as well. Enjoy dolphin tours, scuba diving and even surf board rentals at lower prices during the off season. You will also enjoy the more laid-back atmosphere on the beach, in the streets and in restaurants when all you want is a nice quiet or romantic meal with your loved one.
