Getting real with rupiah

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!

Frequently used banknotes

The banknotes in common usage are to the value of 1,000 (turquoise), 2,000 (brown), 5,000 (yellow), 10,000 (purple), 20,000 (green), 50,000 (blue) and 100,000 (red) IDR. Any notes that are dated 1998–1999 are no longer legal tender, although you can exchange these until 2018 for current currency.

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.

Foreign Currency Purchases For Overseas Travel

Travelling overseas with the current low value of the Australian Dollar compared to other major currencies means that your costs can nearly double. Dealing with Travelex after making comparisons with other businesses offering foreign currency I found that I received a little more in my pocket with little or no fee involved in the transaction. Purchasing online was easy as was selecting where to pick up the foreign currency although there is a catch. To avoid fees via the payment method you will find that you have a waiting period before you can collect. With a little forward planning you can have the currency available when you arrive at the airport. On the other side of the coin they do provide the currency in a reasonable spread of denominations so your not purchasing a sandwich with a 100 dollar note.

Excellent service with good exchange rates and speed of delivery. One suggestion: Allow your purchase minimum limit of $500 AUD cover the sum of several denominations. For example, I wish to purchase Hong Kong Dollars and Dirham but the AUD cost for each denomination is less than $500; however, the total cost is more than $500 AUD.
