We see a lot of people here who are actually on scooters. I’ve got a really big issue with that because your travel insurance in most cases won’t actually cover you for riding the scooter

In its weekly video blog, Business Travel Management shares travel tips from its Managing Director’s recent trip to Bali.
Bali hotels usually offer an airport assistance service where their staff will meet passengers at the arrival gate to help them get through customs, collect baggage, and get their visa more efficiently.
“Regardless of the hotel you are staying in, we can arrange airport assistance for you,” said Jake Hower, Managing Director of Business Travel Management.
Based on his own experience with airport assistance in Bali, the help upon arrival speed up the process considerably.
According to Hower, it took him about 10 minutes to get through the airport once he landed as opposed to the usual 45 minutes without the service.
“It was well worth an extra 20 or 30 dollars per person to have that service,” said Mr. Hower.
In the video, Jake also advises against riding scooters on Bali trips since most travel insurance policies do not cover travellers who get into an accident on a scooter.
“We see a lot of people here who are actually on scooters. I’ve got a really big issue with that because your travel insurance in most cases won’t actually cover you for riding the scooter,” said Mr. Hower.
For travellers who want to ride scooters on their Bali trip, Hower advises them to check their travel insurance policy to see if it covers scooters.
Some airlines also offer socks in flight. Hower advises travellers to take the socks whenever they are offered because these socks have been designed to increase blood flow so that passengers can decrease their risks of getting DVT problems.
The last tip Jake shares with viewers is to get noise cancelling headphones for long flights.
According to Hower, noise-cancelling headphones serve many useful purposes. They can be used to watch shows on the plane, to cut out engine noise, and to sleep in.
“It’s well worth it to invest in a good pair of noise-cancelling headphones if you travel long distance,” advised Mr. Hower.

About Business Travel Management
Business Travel Management is a division of Pan Australian Travel Pty Ltd, which has been in operation since the late 1950s. It is 100% owned and operated by two Australian directors, Chris Daniels and Jake Hower.
Chris and Jake came up with the idea for Business Travel Management after they realized that existing travel companies did not cater well to small and medium enterprises. Meanwhile, Pan Australian Travel was already servicing an existing “core” of SME clients, so it already had deep expertise in this market segment.
Therefore, Chris and Jake formed Business Travel Management in 2012 to cater to SME business travelers.
