Bali tour operators in bad shape

Recent research disclosed that most of the island’s tour operators are struggling.

Unfair competition from unlicensed tour operators, lack of financial capital and a heavily saturated market were blamed as the main causes. The research recommended the local administration discontinue issuing new licenses for tour operators and weed out those that are unlicensed. Research disclosed that 58 percent of the local tour operators have limited financial capital, with investment values of less than Rp 500 million. There were 628 registered and licensed tour operators in 2010. The number dropped to 307 in 2011. Yet we estimate that there are around 500 unlicensed tour operators doing business in Bali.
