Planning a trip to Indonesia? While it’s easy to book a villa or high end hotel online for a holiday in Bali, it is a bit more difficult to organize a tour of the several exotic islands that make up the archipelago of Indonesia. That is where a domestic travel agency comes to the rescue!
For instance, which hotel should you choose? One can find advice and feedback on Trip Advisor or several other travel forums that are mushrooming on the Internet. However, how do you judge the relevance of the comments? Will the opinions or interests of some person living in Alaska be the same as yours? Next question – how will you book your travel needs? It is difficult to find and book a trustworthy and knowledgeable driver from another country. How can you negotiate the prices of your ferry tickets without being physically present? At the end, you would have spent countless hours on the Internet, spent a good part of your holidays negotiating and spent a lot more than you had budgeted for.
