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

Guided trek around
Mount Batur, Bali

Your system works
Everything went smoothly except when I went to pick up the money. There was no-one at the Travelex desk - I had to wait 5 minutes and no-one in the bank let me know what was happening. Eventually the teller arrived. She asked for my printout of the email, got out the envelope, opened it, asked me for my id; then told me it was wrong. It was then that she realised she had opened the wrong envelope, and found the correct one. So I am confirming that your system with its checks and balances works.Vicki
