        Benefits of planning ahead

        Know that as soon as you arrive in Indonesia, you’ll have the cash you need for all those little essentials. Whether it’s a taxi from the airport or the chance to try tasty specialties like Nasi Goreng, Satay and Sambal, having Indonesian Rupiah on hand makes things simple.

        You also won’t need to worry about finding an ATM or facing any additional withdrawal charges while you’re away. Buying your Indonesian Rupiah before you go also means you’ll know what exchange rate you’re getting, which is handy because when you withdraw cash abroad, you’ll be subject to changing exchange rates.

            Some common questions about the Indonesian Rupiah

            What is the Indonesian Rupiah?

            The Indonesian Rupiah is the official currency of Indonesia. It’s issued by the Central Bank of the Republic of Indonesia and is commonly abbreviated to Rp.

            The Rupiah became Indonesia’s official currency in 1946, replacing the Indonesian Dutch East Indies guilder. After high inflation in the 1950s, Indonesia introduced a new Rupiah in 1965 and that’s the version still used today.

              What denominations does the Indonesian Rupiah come in?

              Rupiah notes come in 1000Rp, 2000Rp, 5000Rp, 10.000Rp, 20.000Rp, 50.000Rp and 100.000Rp.

              Coins come in 50Rp, 100Rp, 200Rp, 500Rp and 1000Rp.

                What countries use the Indonesian Rupiah?

                Indonesia is the largest island country in the world and is home to more than 17,000 islands – and the Indonesian Rupiah is used on all of them. Indonesia is the only country that uses the Rupiah as its official currency, but it’s also used unofficially in neighbouring country Timor-Leste.

                  What’s the tipping culture like in Indonesia?

                  You don’t have to tip while you’re in Indonesia, but you might want to, especially in the bigger cities. Around 10% is considered a decent tip and you may want to also add in any small coins you have. If you want to tip and there’s no bill to guide you, then between 20.000 and 50.000Rp is a good rule of thumb.

                  In some of the most popular tourist spots, such as Bali or Jakarta, western-style restaurants may add a 10% service charge to your bills so it’s always worth checking.
