    Money Matters

    The largest value Indonesian rupiah bill is the IDR 100,000 note, in a red colour scheme and featuring the portraits of the founding fathers, Soekarno and Hatta on one side, and the parliament building (DPR/MPR RI) on the other. The IDR 50,000 bill, is blue and featuring Balinese hero Gusti Ngurah Rai on one side, and Bali’s Ulun Danu Beratan Temple on the other. These two are the main banknotes you should receive when exchanging your money.

    Smaller denominations are IDR 20,000, IDR 10,000, and IDR 5,000, while the smallest are IDR 2,000 and IDR 1,000. The IDR 500, IDR 200 and IDR 100 are silver coins. Banknote security features include faint watermarking, gold patches and holographic security threads. Always have or ask for a copy of the money changer’s receipt and keep it whenever you change your money, in case you receive and use Indonesian rupiah notes that turn out to be counterfeit.

    At the time of writing this article (May 2016), USD 1 = IDR 13,565. It’s always good to have mobile internet access on your travels in Bali, so you can easily check out the latest rates for general comparison. Most money changers are self-titled ‘Authorised’, but you can never be so sure. Some are very small kiosks and outright dodgy, but tempt the gullible with boards listing rates too good to be true (because, indeed, they usually are!).

    Where to Change your Money

    The moment you land, you’ll find several money changers at the International Arrivals of the Ngurah Rai International Airport, which offer fairly competitive rates and are conveniently open around the clock, however you may find better rates outside the airport. Thus, it’s good to change just a fair amount for your taxi fare or spare change on the trip to your hotel. IDR 500,000 or USD 40 should be more than enough.

    Changing your Money

    It is very common for money changers in Bali to check the quality of your bills, particularly when you’re changing USD notes. They always accept newly issued, clean and stiff notes, while creased, torn and wrinkled notes will often be rejected. The exchange rates also usually specifically applies to USD 100 notes, while smaller denominations have a different set of rates. Coins are not accepted.

    Figure out the general rate versus the advertised rates. Use your calculator app to make some quick comparisons, as some scams involve rigged office calculators, though in very isolated and rare cases. Always recount your money, no matter how much time you need.
