ATMs and money changers are widespread across Indonesia’s cities and tourist areas. In remote areas, ATMs don’t always work and rates of exchange are often poor.
Tipping is not generally practised across much of Indonesia, but in popular tourist destinations like Bali a small gratuity for services – 5000Rp or 10% – is now expected.
Restaurants (Bali) 10% is the standard tip now.
Hotels Most midrange and all top-end hotels and restaurants add 21% to the bill for tax and service (known as ‘plus plus’).
Taxis, Massages & Porters A tip of 5000Rp to 10,000Rp is appreciated.
