Jakarta Currency Guide


The Indonesian Rupiah is the currency of Jakarta.


ATMs are readily available in Jakarta. Be sure to always carry cash as a backup in case the power goes down, the ATM is out of order, or you lose or break your plastic. If you plan on withdrawing money or using your credit card while travelling, don’t forget to notify your bank before you go for security purposes and to check what international withdrawal fees may apply to your card.


Before you leave home, don't forget to convert some of your Australian Dollars into Indonesian Rupiah to have with you when you arrive in Indonesia. Indonesian Rupiah are available to pre-purchase from Travel Money Oz before you fly.

Credit Card

Plastic is accepted at a growing numbers of shops, restaurants and hotels in Jakarta. Visa and MasterCard are the most widely accepted cards; double check with your bank before you travel about accessing your various accounts while in Jakarta.
