You don’t have to burn a hole in your pocket to experience Bali’s vibrant culture and explore its natural surroundings. There are several ways to travel Bali on a budget, especially if you are willing to enjoy a stay and food that’s more local and pocket-friendly.

Read on to find out some of the best tips on how to travel to Bali on a budget and yet have the best island holiday experience.

Travel Group

Imagine traveling with friends or fellow travelers to explore the paradise island of Bali! You will find it the cheapest way to travel since the significant expenses related to stay, travel, and food get shared. With a larger group, bargaining for everything gets easier. It is also best to book your trip through GT Holidays, which can customise the itinerary according to your group’s expectations and budget requirements. Our group packages can considerably lower your cost to travel to Bali and ensure you have a memorable time exploring the island.

Advance Booking

You may get a great deal if you intend to travel to Bali and have enough pre-book time. Booking in advance helps make your trip much cheaper than last-minute travel since most good places get reserved if you wait longer. GT Holidays has a great network of hotels and resorts in Bali that offer excellent deals and take care of your stay, transport, and food, thus reducing costs on all fronts. From guided day trips to all-inclusive accommodations to activities, you can save money by booking your Bali travel packages in advance through our agents.

Transaction In Cash

You may assume that using a credit card is the easiest way to deal with transactions abroad, but there’s a chance that you may lose track of expenses and end up paying a lot more. Most places in Bali do not accept credit cards, and some charge you a hefty convenience fee along with the transaction, unnecessarily increasing your Bali trip budget. It would be best if you also remembered that only certain debit cards work at the ATM. It is, therefore, best to carry enough cash for your expenses, especially for shopping. Make sure you get enough foreign exchange before flying into Bali and distribute it amongst family members, so there’s no fear of losing it all. You can also use reliable ATMs once you land at the Bali airport to get cash.

Transport Apps

The first thing you need after landing in Bali is transport. If you plan to travel to Bali on a budget, it’s best to be aware that taxi costs are very high, and just travelling around Bali might turn out to get very expensive. The easiest way out of this encounter is to book your Bali tour package through GT Holidays, which will cover all your transport costs, from airport transfers to sightseeing in and around the island. Another option is to use transport apps like Gojek, which allows you to call for scooter rides, and the Bluebird app to contact taxis, and these transports are cheaper than regular taxis.

Shopping Streets

The most brilliant way to avoid spending too much on travel shopping in Bali is to shop on the smaller streets, where you can bargain and buy many beautiful things at great prices. The streets offer various options from clothes to local arts and crafts, that too at a reasonable price. You can shop for souvenirs for yourself as well as take them back home for friends and family.

Local Eats

Whether you travel as a couple with our Bali honeymoon packages or in a group through GT Holidays, you can explore multiple food options and cuisines in Bali. From Westernized restaurants in Ubud and Canggu to local restaurants called Warungs, you will get the food of your choice. But if you intend to eat well but within the Bali trip budget, try eating at the local markets serving traditional Indonesian food. Explore the eateries at Bali’s early morning and night markets to get a taste of local delicacies at a fraction of the cost compared to restaurants. Additionally, you can also shop for souvenirs created by local artisans.

Bali is a holiday destination that welcomes travelers with all kinds of budgets. If you plan to travel to Bali on a budget, then visit our Instagram page or call GT Holidays and book your Maldives travel packages soon.
