TRAVEL & HEALTH INSURANCE
We strongly advise that you do not travel without Travel & Health insurance. Emergency care can become expensive really quickly. Do check your coverage before you travel as some policies do not cover injuries caused by certain activities such as trekking, scuba diving, or paragliding. Often, if you pay your travel expenses with your credit card, travel insurance is included. You can check with your credit card company for details

There are several pharmacy chains operating in Bali which do give a good service and know what they are doing. Medicine is often very cheap compared to other countries.
