Flight back from Gili T to Lombok

Hi people!

I'm a 23 years young solo traveller & I need advice as to whether should i get back to Kuta Lombok from Gili T. one day before my flight or can i just get back on that day itself from Gili T. Do the boat arrive as early as 7 in the morning? Because im kinda worried if i might miss my flight if i get back on that day itself. Ohh, & one more, is Rp 250,000 too much for an airport pick up service from Denpasar airport to Tune Hotel Kuta bali which is like a 15 mins drive? Please advise! Thank you very much! :)

Yes that airport pickup does seem a little expensive.

What time does your flight depart LOP (Lombok ), and which airline is it?

If you go to the taxi rank at drnpasar airport a taxi should only be about 50000rp. So 250000 is excessive.

While you're there Herc, can you please advise if I can book my Lion Air flight to Lombok before we go to Bali, or do we have to go to the domestic airport when we get there to book it?

Cheers :)

Many visitors from Gili take Lion Air flight at 12.30pm from Lombok airport.

They take the boat from Gili around 08.30-09.00am, and arrived at the airport safely around 11am or less.

The latest check in time for domestic flight is 30 minutes prior to depart, so there is plenty time remaining.

Just make sure everything will run smoothly, no waiting.

Meter is used on all taxis on Lombok.

If departing from the airport in a taxi there is an Airport Taxi Service fee, Rp17,500 to all areas other than Central Lombok admin zone (includes Kuta), that is Rp10,000.

If gong to the airport there is no levy applied, you only pay what shows on the meter.

Make sure the taxi is firmly booked for a Bangsal or Teluk Nare pickup, and don't let any of the local touts get involved.

They may demand a 'commission' from the driver.

Of course the driver cannot pay them a 'commission' so they will try to force him to work 'of the meter' and so doing rip you off, get ripped off himself, and risk his employment as well.

If that situation should arise resist it strongly, that will embolden the taxi driver to resist any demand. That demand upon him may be made in a manner you cannot readily identify.

This only happens on rare occasions, but be alert to it.

You can also arrange a driver and car to meet you there.

Allow 2 hours for the actual road journey.
