Our priority is to confirm the safety of all our travellers.  Together with our local partner, we are trying our utmost to provide information to our travellers of whom their trip might be affected by this situation.

  • In case you are about to travel to Lombok and you have questions on the rest of your stay, please revert to our local partner directly. We will do our utmost to ensure your trip can go as planned or adjust your trip accordingly.  
  • In case you have questions about your trip or your family/ friend/ relative in Indonesia, please feel free to contact us per mail, phone or via Facebook 

Please be informed that as it is a “force majeure” situation, extra costs made for travel amendments as result of the earthquake are in principle for the traveller. We advise travellers to keep the receipts, as travellers could claim (some of) these costs from their travel insurance, depending on the insurance policy.
