At a meeting held between local leaders of the Indonesian Association of Travel Agents (ASITA-Bali) and the Indonesian Hotel and Restaurant Association (PHRI-Bali) in early June a number of "rules of the game" were discussed that if successfully implemented would have a fundamental change on the way Bali's travel industry transacts business.

Among the main points discussed and tentatively agreed at the June 7, 2005, meeting between PHRI and ASITA were:

ASITA insists that rates given to overseas agent should always be a minimum of 5% more than those granted by hotels to local travel agents.

• That rules should be established compelling overseas agents to always work through a local travel agent as their representative.

• That local hotels will always check to confirm membership in ASITA before granting contract rates to a local agent.

• That a clearer delineation between hotel and travel agents services be made, reserving the right to provide airport transfers to local travel agents.

• To stop the practice of hotels allowing unlicensed travel counters to operate on their properties.

• That a cooperative body comprised of the directors of PHRI-Bali and ASITA-Bali be established to deal with shared issues and problems.

• That a memorandum of understanding (MOU) be drafted covering the agreed areas of mutual cooperation.

• That a body dedicated to both domestic and international promotion be formed between PHRI-Bali and ASITA-Bali.

• That a joint credit meeting be regularly held between PHRI-Bali and ASITA-Bali to identify travel agents who are delinquent in their debts.
