The Indonesian islands (particularly Bali) are one of the surfing capitals of the world and have a lot to offer casual tourists and surfers alike. Travellers to Indonesia tend to stay for longer periods of time compared to European destinations, and as such the average order for Rupiahs is now £890 (14,372,610.00IDR as of Tuesday 6th of December 2016 and based on the data from 1st of July to 30st of September, 2016), This is up on the previous amount of £775 (13,772,500 IDR according to orders placed between 1st August and 31st October 2013).
There are constantly moves to revalue the Rupiah. The intention is to make the Rupiah 100 times more valuable by removing two zeros from the face value. If this happens travellers should be very cautious when receiving or exchanging money. This has been mooted for many years now but has yet to happen. It is a common scam after a revaluation to pass off old currency as the more valuable new notes and for this reason we recommend that you buy your Rupiahs in the UK before you leave to avoid any complications.
You'll need to apply for a visa to enter Indonesia which you can get upon your arrival or from the Indonesian Embassy in London. Visas cost around $35 USD (or equivalent) and are valid for up to 30 days. A shorter 7-day transit visa is also available at a reduced cost but must be purchased in advance from the Indonesian Embassy.
If you stay in private accommodation in Indonesia (for example with a host family), you are required to register your presence with the local police authority or you could face a fine or deportation. If you stay in a hotel you will be automatically registered during check-in.
Over the past week the Indonesian Rupiah has dropped by 0.10% from last Wednesday's rate of 16164.4 to today's rate of 16149 which means £750 will buy you Rp11,550.00 less now than it would have a week ago. During this period the best rate we recorded was 16437 on Sunday and the worst rate was 16120 on Monday.
The 90 day outlook has seen the Indonesian Rupiah rate drop by 2.79% from 16612 on 8th September 2016 to 16149 today. Based on these figures, £750 would have bought you Rp347,250.00 more three months ago that it would have today. We recorded a high rate of 16739.1 on 15th September 2016 and a low rate of 14932.3 on 25th October 2016.
