Raja Ampat in Indonesia

Indonesia has over 13,000 islands. For the holidaymaker wanting to see as much as possible this presents problems.

To some extent the Indonesian airline, Garuda which recently began a direct service from London to the capital, Jakarta has resolved that problem.

It has launched the Wonderful Indonesia Travel Pass which allows you to get around to an place that takes your fancy.

There are six price levels, for example just £25 for 1-200 miles, £62 for 450-800 miles and £150 for 1400-2000 miles, representing overall savings of up to 30% on standard airfares. Business class fares for the passes are also available, starting from £75 for up to 200 miles up to £469 for 1400-2000 miles.

To make it a bit easier for those that don’t know the country the airline has themed some ideas so that you can buy a pass can tailored to one of four different categories – Adventure, Underwater, Heritage and Explore.

The Adventure Pass offers special fares to three to five destinations that showcase the most adventurous places in Indonesia. Destinations include: Denpasar, Lombok, Labuan Bajo, Gunung Sitoli, Ternate, Surabaya, Banyuwangi, Sumbawa, Medan, Padang, Sorong, and Bandung.

The Underwater Pass offers travellers the chance to explore the top diving and snorkelling opportunities in Indonesia. Destinations include: Denpasar, Lombok, Semarang, Labuan Bajo, Manado, Sorong, Berau, Ambon, Ternate, Bau-bau, Saumlaki, and Sabang.

The Heritage Pass allows travellers to explore the cultural elements of Indonesia with temple visits and historical sites. Destinations include: Jogjakarta, Solo, Semarang, Surabaya, Banyuwangi, Bandung, Denpasar, Tambolaka, Padang, Gunung Sitoli and Makassar.

The rule is that you must buy the ticket before you get to Indonesia in combination with a Garuda international return ticket.
