Currency

The currency in Indonesia is the rupiah (IDR). The exchange rate is presently 1 GBP to 17,950 IDR, or 1 USD to 13,642 IDR.

 

Typical budget

It is possible to explore Indonesia with a fairly modest travel budget. It is also possible to enjoy a flashpacker lifestyle for an affordable amount, with people getting more for their money than in other parts of the world. Of course, if you stay in fancy hotels and dine in gourmet restaurants each day, Indonesia can also be an expensive place to travel.

Because the country is so large, costs can vary immensely depending on the destination. In general, prices are higher in more popular tourist areas and larger cities. Prices are generally lower in more remote destinations.

 

Travelling in Indonesia on a budget

People who stay on just one island or hop between two neighbouring islands, sleep in hostels, eat street food, use local transportation, and really watch their budget can get by in Indonesia for around 204,300 IDR (£12) per day. As some of Indonesia’s top sights have admission fees, and transportation between islands is often an unavoidable, doubling that budget to 408,600 IDR (£22) will enable people to make the most of their time in Indonesia and explore more of the country. Of course, you will need to increase your budget appropriately if you plan on flying domestically within Indonesia or want to visit some of the farer-flung islands.
