Indonesia is open to international tourism

Indonesia (including the resort island of Bali) welcomes all foreign tourists, abolishing recently nearly all travel restrictions to enter the country. There is a no-quarantine policy for international travelers nationwide and no Covid tests on arrival. The only requirement to enter Indonesia is a negative PCR test taken within 48 hours before departure. Visa-on-arrival (VoA) has been fully resumed on 28th April 2022 for passport holders from 60 countries.

Currently, foreign passengers are not allowed to transit through Indonesian airports.

Best time to fly to Indonesia?Here are the cheapest months/days to book flights

The best time to fly cheaply to Indonesia tends to be during the low season. Weather patterns vary across the country, but as a rule, the best deals can be found during the rainy season from October to April (except Christmas and New Year). However, if you wish to visit Papua or the Maluku Islands where the monsoon season deviates from the Indonesian “norm”, choose to travel between April and October to save on flights. Despite frequent downpours, the rainy season in Indonesia has temperatures hovering around 30 degrees, the islands are less crowded and everything is cheaper.

Timing is everything

Bear in mind that plane tickets usually don’t get cheaper closer to the departure date. Even these reasonably priced flights in the low season sell out quite far ahead of the date of travel – it pays to book your ticket well in advance. The best time to buy can vary among airlines but the golden time for domestic flights usually falls between 3 weeks and 8 weeks before the departure. For international flights, give yourself even more time: start checking ticket prices at least 2-6 months beforehand.

There is one main rule airlines’ price algorithm use: the fewer seats an airline has left on a flight, the more expensive those available seats will be. Knowing how the flight ticket pricing work, will give you an advantage when booking the next flight. Watch this video to learn about the science behind the airline pricing strategies:

10 most effective flight hacks for Indonesia

  1. Watch for a good sale. Most airlines publish their web promotions frequently. To get a great bargain be sure to watch the airline sales over the course of several weeks.
  2. Avoid Indonesian public holidays. Prices skyrocket during holidays in Indonesia – adjust your travel dates to avoid expensive tickets. Cheap flights to Indonesia are non-existent during popular “red days” such as Chinese New Year (February), Idul Fitri (May), and Idul Adha (July).
  3. Join Air Traveler Club. A proven way to get great prices on flights to Indonesia is to become a member of Air Traveler Club. It is free to join, and deals that the members get every week are priced at least 40% below the average airfare for a given route. Some of these 'hacker fares' can save you up to 80% (!) on your next flight.
  4. Select your seats in advance. If you wish to have a premium “hot” seat or ensure your party is seated together, you need to select your seats in advance. Try to check-in as early as possible for a larger selection of available seats. The hot seat rates are reasonable and the larger legroom will make a difference, especially on longer flights.
  5. Book a seat in a quiet zone. Some airlines (for example AirAsia X) start to offer child-free "quiet zones" for a peaceful flight experience. Children below 10 years old are not allowed in this section. Those seats are usually located in front of the plane (bonus: less noise from the engines) with soft ambient lighting and early meal service.
  6. Avoid the last flight connection of the day. Indonesian budget airlines are 'famous' for their delays and sudden flight cancellations. When flying domestically, try not to book the last flight out of your connecting airport. In case of a cancellation, the airline will obviously put you on its next flight, but it will require an overnight stay and arrival a day later.
  7. Pre-book your meal. Most Indonesian airlines don't include meals in the price of your ticket. If you think you may want a meal in-flight, make the purchase while you’re booking, as the meal selection for buying onboard is usually limited and prices are higher.
  8. Think in advance ... ... if you enjoy having a beer or a drink during the trip. Being an Islamic country Indonesia has completely dry airports especially if you are taking a domestic flight. Also, the inflight menu will not have alcoholic drinks available for purchase.
  9. Bring your own entertainment. Most aircraft that serve domestic routes in Indonesia don't have entertainment systems onboard. It may be a smart move to pre-fill your tablet with movies, music, and games back at home.
  10. DM instead of the call center. Use Twitter or Facebook Messenger to contact the airline customer service. If the problem arises, social media is usually a faster way to contact a real human that can answer your questions. Don't count too much on airline call centers, they are usually super busy.
