Indonesia is around 15-20 hours flight from the UK and is made up of around 18 000 islands. It is the largest archipelago in the world straddling the Equator, between the Indian and Pacific Oceans. Most travellers will enter Indonesia through Jakarta (CGK), Bali (DPS) or Manado (MDC) airports. This is the stuff of divers' dreams. This exotic nation is the very definition of bio diversity. Find the big fish in Komodo, Raja Ampat or Kalimantan. Drift lazily along the walls of Bunaken and Wakatobi, watching turtles on coral drenched walls. While away the hours hunting for miniscule macro in Bali, Lembeh or Ambon. Cannot decide? Why not combine two locations into a single trip!

Indonesia is a vast country, and the weather can be hugley variable. The topography means that weather patterns can be very localised. This is the tropics! For Bali, Komodo & Wakatobi the weather is usually best from April - November, with July and August being some of the best months to visit. Between December and March the conditions can be a bit stormy. November to April is also the wettest month to visit Bunaken, Lembeh and Kalimantan but to a lesser degree than in other locations. October to April is historically the most popular time to dive in Raja Ampat.

As standard, our holidays to Indonesia are quoted with London departures. We are however able to book most major airlines.  Popular options for Indonesia include Cathay Pacific (40kgs hold allowance), Singapore airlines, Qatar, Emirates, Malaysian, KLM and Gaurda. If you would like to depart from a different UK airport (eg. Glasgow/Edinburgh, Manchester, Birmingham or Gatwick) or have a specific airline you prefer to fly with, simply let us know in your booking request.  A supplement may apply for regional departures.  Times and any applicable supplements will be confirmed by your travel consultant before you finalise your holiday.  If you wish to make your own flight arrangements to Indonesia, let us know and we can remove the cost of the international flights from your quote. We are unfortunately not able to redeem airmiles on your behalf.  Please do not confirm any flight arrangements yourself before your holiday is confirmed by us.  

With a huge range of airlines to fly with, you can easily build in a stop over either on your way to or on your way back from Indonesia. Simply talk to your travel consultant about adding a stop over into your itinerary.

Indonesia is a vast country, but thanks to the extensive domestic flight network, it is actually relatively easy to add extensions onto your liveaboard or resort. We can easily add jungle and land adventures too! Please talk to your travel consultant for inspiration and suggestions as to the locations that would work well with your chosen holiday.

As you are flying with a scheduled airline, you will be able to check in online with your airline.  Please visit their website for more information about when online check in opens.

You will also be able to manage your booking online once you have been ticketed (after you have paid your holiday balance).  Most airlines will now enable you to select your seating at this point.  There may be a small charge for prebookable seating before online check in opens.  Please speak to the airline for more information about charges.

An airport lounge is a great way to start your holiday or to while away flight connections in comfort.  Scuba Travel works with Lounge Pass to offer a huge range of affordable airport lounges around the world. click here

Prebook your airport parking to save money!  If you have a long way to travel, why not also look at booking an airport hotel.  These aren’t as expensive as you might think.   click here

UK Passport holders landing in Jakarta, Bali or Manado are able to obtain a free 30 day visa on arrival. It is your responsibility to ensure your passport is valid and you fulfil entry requirements. Regulations can change: please review current FCO advice: click here

Scuba Travel requires all of our customers to have diving insurance.  Please make sure that you have appropriate cover for your diving activities.   We also strongly recommend you have travel insurance.  It’s worth taking out travel insurance once you have paid your deposit to ensure you are covered for unforeseen events and cancellation.

On arrival in your Indonesia destination, you will need to clear immigration and collect your baggage.  You will then be met outside of arrivals by a representative from your liveaboard or resort.  Some reps are able to meet you airside. They will be holding a board with either your destination or your name on it.   If you have any issues at all locating your rep, please contact us.  We have an emergency contact, manned by a member of the team here in the UK.  Please call 0044 7747 488 002.  We will be able to help your rep locate you in the airport.  

If you have a hotel en route please follow any specific instructions in your travel documents. Where possible, you will be met by a representative who will assist in taking you to your hotel. If using a shuttle service, please arrange your return shuttle time back to the airport at the hotel check in. Domestic flights are common in Indonesia and run frequently. The major hubs of Jakarta, Bali and Manado all have separate terminals for domestic and international departures. Just follow the signs to move between international and domestic terminals. The service has improved vastly, but there can still be last minute schedule changes. Please ensure you leave plenty of time for check in or transit between flights (usually 4 hours min). Domestic flights can typically only be booked with a 20kgs hold allowance as standard. Excess baggage must be paid for in Indonesian rupiah and costs around $2-$5 per kg per way. Due to local traffic and road conditions, land journey times can be difficult to predict. We recommend you take water with you and keep any essentials in your hand baggage to make your journey as comfortable as possible.

At the end of your holiday, your return transfer details will be advised locally. As of Feb 2015, the departure tax for all domestic and international flights is built into your flight ticket price.
