MAKING A POSITIVE IMPACT
Authentic Indonesia fights to run its business along ethical lines, embracing the 3 pillars of sustainability. By partnering with a wide range of locals, we seek to maximise the positive benefits received by local communities.
Our sustainable policy details our commitments to deliver our services in a responsible manner, while providing qualitative and authentic travel packages to our customers. Additionally, Authentic Indonesia is committed in developing and operating our travel services in a sustainable manner and being part of a sustainable tourism approach.
GIVE A LOCAL RESPONSE TO GLOBAL PROBLEMS
To make our commitments last in time, we decided to provide reusable bags made from palm leaves and gourds to avoid daily use of plastic and we decided to join frequently beach clean-ups to preserve Indonesian beauty.
If we want to keep our charming archipelago accessible for travellers, it is our role, as a local travel agency, to support the environment preservation.

DEVELOP COMMUNITY-BASED TOURISM
Thanks to community-based tourism projects, our customers can immerse in unique experiences while generating revenue and improve welfare in remote and impoverished communities of Indonesia.
As an example, we are proud to support a local orphanage in Bali, named Gurukula Foundation, where our customers can live authentic experiences.
We have also designed authentic activities with some of our employees’ family to make travellers discover the authentic side of Indonesia.
BE SOCIALLY COMMITTED
Indonesia is a fascinating and exciting place for the boundless opportunities of cultural exchange. To experience this, we have worked hard to integrate immersive and mutually beneficial cultural experiences in our tours.
For the most enriching experiences possible, we always encourage our customers to keep an open mind and respect local cultures and traditions which vary substantially across the islands.
Finally, our sustainability policy also describes the measures in favour of our employees, as for example health measures including health insurance and pension plan established for our permanent staff.
