The yearly schoolies break is just around the corner and new data from Allianz Travel reveals that over the past five years there has been a significant increase in popularity of people travelling to Indonesia during this time.*
In fact, between 2015-2016, there was a 63 percent increase in young travellers who took out Allianz travel insurance for travel to Indonesia during the Schoolies period.

If you’re Indonesia-bound this Schoolies season, Allianz Travel has compiled a list of some of the best things to see and do, together with useful items to pack that you might not have considered, ensuring you have an end-of-year trip to remember!

The top 5 essentials to pack to make the most of these Indonesian adventures:
1. An action camera

Indonesia is a stunning country with so much to do and see, from surfing in Uluwatu, to trekking in the rain forest in Ubud. An action camera is a great way to capture your adventure. Be sure to pack an extra memory card too.*

*Handy hint: Keep your personal belongings tucked away if you’re going to be around monkeys, especially in and around temples, as they can be renowned for stealing personal items!

2. A festival-style poncho

The average temperature in Indonesia during Schoolies season is a warm 27 degrees. However, between October – April it’s also the rainy season. No one wants to be caught out in the middle of Tanah Lot during a sporadic down-pour, so don’t let it dampen your mood – be prepared and pack a lightweight festival-style rain poncho to keep you covered.

3. A portable charger

Indonesia is full of Instagram-worthy places like the breath-taking Barabudur. Make sure you’ve always got charge by carrying a portable power strip at all times, so you’ve always got battery life to capture the perfect #selfie.

4. A first aid kit

It sounds obvious, but packing a small first aid kit of essentials makes a lot of sense. It doesn’t have to be huge, but you’d be surprised how handy a pack of plasters, a box of paracetamol and cream for insect bites can be – especially if you’re venturing around Lake Toba and the Komodo National Park.

5. Travel insurance
One of the smartest things you can pack is a print out of your travel insurance cover. Internet isn’t readily available everywhere in Indonesia, so carrying a printout of your policy with you is a good idea, especially if you’ll be in a remote location like the Derawan or the Wakatobi Islands.

Make sure you understand the ins and outs of your travel insurance, especially when it comes to hiring a scooter as there may be requirements you will need to meet that are outlined in your travel insurance. Remember to also get cover for any other activities you might like to do while you’re there such as jetskiing and quad-biking. If an accident does happen, it’s important that you call your
provider immediately.
