Dear kind Travellers,

I would appreciate if any kind travellers out there would be able to help advise on the best and most afforable route to Gili Trawangan from Lombok.

There are total of 4 travellers and have made reservations to fly directly into Lomobok international airport. We will be arriving at 6.30pm in the evening. I did abit of research online and found that there would be no speedboat / ferry operating at the 2 jetty/ferry terminal (Teluk Nare and Bangsal) the only option would be to charter a private speedboat.

The accomdation that we will be staying would be the kokomo resorts. They have offered to provide an airport transfer (Incl Boatride) at USD38 per person/way. I think this is way too expensive. My gut feeling tells me that there are cheaper alternatives, i believe in paying for value instead of high prices.

I sincerely hope if every traveller who has traveled to gili trawangan island from lombok before, please advise if you have any reliable agents or transport mode that offers a cheaper alternatives.

Your advice would very much be appreciated.

Thank you

Desperate Traveller !

The boats go between bangsal and Gili T constantly during the morning. No need to book, just turn up and buy a ticket. There are many people going back and forth between the islands.

Not sure about getting from airport to bangsal, I rode a motorbike to get around.
