These pages contain a number of tips for travelers that are going to bring a visit to the Indonesian island of Bali soon. They are simple tips about the daily life on the island and what to expect when visiting the island. Many things will be just slightly different than at home, but it is important to locals that you at least somewhat adhere to their lifestyle.
Fortunately, many of the airline tickets issued nowadays are e-tickets. You have received a copy of them in your email most likely and it is smart to keep them available in your email during your holiday in case you need them. Print one out before you leave, as the immigration officer may ask you for a ticket of a flight bringing you out of Indonesia again.
For those who do not have e-tickets; write down your airline ticket number, flight number, issuing agent, date of issue, and method of payment. This information will make your ticket easier to refund in case of loss, but you still have to pay US$10 or more to the airline to replace it. The airline wants to be sure tickets haven't been used, so they can only be refunded at least three months after their expiration date.
Don't put your passport and money in the same place. If they're stolen, you've lost everything. Report passport loss immediately to the nearest police station and ask for a letter of reported theft/loss. Without this letter, a replacement passport to give you an extension from the imigrasi could be difficult. New passports or letters of travel can be obtained through consulates and embassies, most likely in Jakarta. Indonesia's major trading partners (Australia, Japan, U.S.A., the Netherlands) maintain consulates on Bali, many in Sanur.
