Tips and Advice

- The unit of currency used in Indonesia is the rupiah (Rp). Denominations of 25, 50, 100 and 500 rupiah are in circulation in both the old silver-coloured coins and the newer bronze-colored coins.

- Notes come in 500, 1000, 5000, 10, 000, 20, 000, 50, 000 and 100, 000 rupiah denominations.

- It’s wise to use plenty of options for exchanging money in Indonesia: carry some plastic, travelers’ cheques and some cash.

- ATMs can be found in all tourist areas and at banks. Withdrawing rupiahs from an ATM is an increasingly popular way to take out a daily amount of cash, but be careful the bank doesn't charge an excessive service charge per transaction. Credit cards such as Visa, MasterCard, Eurocard and American Express are widely accepted at most large shops, restaurants and hotels in the city.

- In Kwitang area in central Jakarta, there are men waiting on the left side of the road with text signs like "Pedagang Valuta Asing" (means: money changer) or "Beli Dollar" ( means: buy dollars). These men accept coins and rumpled dollars.
