The Low Down on Indonesian Currency
Rp 2,000, Rp 5,000, Rp 10,000, Rp 20,000
By 1971, the rupiah (IDR) had become the official currency of all of Indonesia’s 34 different provinces. Sen are to rupiah what pence are to pounds. One rupiah equates to 100 sen, but since even one rupiah does not carry much value, you will find next to nothing is priced in terms of sen.
Bargaining is a very typical practice in Indonesia, so never be afraid to negotiate the price on the items you want to buy. Before midday, you might be able to pay a ‘morning price’ for your goods – up to a 30% discount!
Notes are used a lot more frequently than coins in Indonesia – even though 1,000 IDR equate to less than one British penny, you will still find small bills paid with cash made up of 1,000 IDR notes, rather than the coin for the same amount. Any notes that are dated 1998–1999 are no longer legal tender, although you can exchange these until 2018 for current currency.
What to spend your rupiah on:
Entrance to the National Museum
Refreshing soft drink in
Taxi from S-H International Airport
to Jakarta city centre
Guided trek around
Mount Batur, Bali
Scuba diving in Tulamben,
Must-sees in indonesia
