On this page you will find several tips to fly domestic routes in Indonesia as cheap as possible, but still without worries. Read them carefully before you decide to continue making your reservation for e-tickets on this website, as it will save you time and money.
1. Book as early as possible
In general, when you book earlier, the prices will be lower. This is why it is possible to book up to one year in advance on ticketindonesia.info. Tickets too far away on the calendar however often have higher fares, as discounted rates have not been entered in the airlines booking system yet.
2. Avoid traveling in busy periods
Try to avoid traveling in busy periods in Indonesia, like national holidays, religious holidays and short blocks of free days. The most important holidays are the days around the end of the Ramadan, Christmas, New Year, Chinese New Year and Easter. Often traveling in the 'opposite direction' is cheap however; when Jakartans travel to Bali to spend a week or so there, the planes from Bali are often almost empty and therefore cheaper.
3. Travel outside weekends
If possible, avoid the weekends. The most expensive period in a week is often between Friday afternoon and Sunday afternoon because many Indonesians spend their weekend of away from their home. Often traveling in the 'opposite direction' is cheap however; when Jakartans travel to Bali to spend a week or so there, the planes from Bali are often almost empty and therefore cheaper.
4. Difference in prices
It is possible that you see a difference in price from one website to another. Please note that the fares published on our website are inclusive of all fees and taxes where possible. Don't be fooled by huge discounts and super low prices. Most airlines will still add levies and taxes before the final price is displayed. You benefit from booking via ticketindonesia.info because we always give you a fare price including all these costs.
5. No flights found?
If you can not find the flight you are looking for, you may want to try another day of the week. Especially in the more scarcely populated areas in Eastern Indonesia, it is normal that destinations are only called in at a few times a week.
Not al cities have direct links with each other. You can check if a city in the area has the connection you are looking for and fly from there. Mainly for the eastern part of Indonesia it is possible that flights are some kind of 'relay race'; several stops are made in a certain order.
6. How much time between flights?
We advise you to see to it that any transit lasts at least several hours. It is possible that a flight is delayed slightly. If you have an international flight to catch, it might even be useful to stay near the airport of your international departure about one day ahead.
In the eastern part of Indonesia, delays are more likely to occur than elsewhere. Flights also may be cancelled. We advise you to always contact the airline before you are about to depart to ask about the latest status of your flight. Since 2008, Indonesia has improved passenger rights. If there is a delay, you now are entitled to a snack, meal, hotel, rebooking or even a refund depending on the length of your delay.
