Tigerair has just released cheap fares, and we’ve paired them up with hotels across the island for the ultimate cheap Bali holiday.
18 March 2016: Tigerair has launched a five-day sale on flights to Bali, with fares starting at just $89 each way departing Perth. Return tickets are available for even less than the price of two one-way fares, at just $165. Flights from Adelaide and Melbourne are available for slightly higher rates, at $218 and $258, respectively.
We’ve combined these low fares with some affordable combinations and have found it’s possible to take a holiday on the Indonesian island for less than $250 per person - and you certainly won’t be staying in a hostel. Read on to find out how.
First, you’ll need to book your flight to Bali (Denpasar):
|$89 each way||$109 each way||$129 each way|
|$165 return||$218 return||$258 return|
Second, you’ll need to book accommodation in Bali:
Bali has loads of options when it comes to accommodation. For budget travellers looking to have a good time, the towns of Kuta, Legian and Seminyak are ideal, while families looking for the comfort of a resort would likely be better off somewhere like Nusa Dua or Sanur. Culture vultures can get their fill of temples, local shops and rice paddies in Ubud.
We’ve chosen a comfortable accommodation option to cater to each of these tastes:
- Kuta: Best Western Nusa Dua - $181 for five nights ($91 per person)
- Nusa Dua: Hotel Santika Nusa Dua - $309 for five nights ($155 per person)
- Ubud: Inata Bisma - $152 for five nights ($76 per person)
Still can't believe a Bali holiday is this cheap? Here's the maths:
|Flight||$165 return||$218 return||$258 return|
|Kuta Hotel||$165 + $91 = $256||$218 + $91 = $309||$258 + $91 = $359|
|Nusa Dua Hotel||$165 + $155 = $320||$218 + $155 = $373||$258 + $155 = $413|
|Ubud Hotel||$165 + $76 = $241||$218 + $76 = $294||$258 + $76 = $334|
An Australian holiday favourite, Bali offers everything from ancient temples in the jungle and by the sea to beaches for surfing and for snorkelling. Plus, the addition of soaring volcanoes, vibrant green rice fields, yoga retreats, and a hopping nightlife scene certainly help make it a destination for anyone.
It’s less than four hours to get to the island’s airport in Denpasar from Perth (five hours from Adelaide and six hours from Melbourne), and less than an hour from the airport to get to most of the resort towns.
