Aussies 'are very well acquainted with Bali'
Article by Mozo
A large proportion of Aussies looking to compare travel money cards often head to Bali for their holidays.
Latest figures released by Bali's Central Statistics Agency have shown that 348,489 Australian's visited the Indonesian island in the first six months of 2011, ABC News reports.
While many class it as their second home, professor of cultural studies at Curtin University Jon Stratton told the news provider that some Aussie citizens seem to forget the destination has its own laws.
He suggested that some high profile incidents have taken place recently, where holidaymakers – without adequate travel insurance – have had an accident in Bali.
"When things go well being in Bali is great but when something goes wrong, things can get very difficult and, indeed, very expensive," he was quoted as saying.
People hoping to buy prepaid travel cards recently heard from director of Potts Lawyers Bill Potts that youngsters in particular need to be educated on different rules in various holiday hotspots so they do not come unstuck, the New Lawyer reports.
