Money And Payment

During our trips we will mostly explore remote regions and will spend most of the time away from the cities. Although ATM service is available in every district (note: ATMs of BNI – National Bank of Indonesia – are the most reliable), it is good to keep enough cash money during the tour for your personal needs! Paying cash is the general way of payment in Flores and only Rupiah (IDR) is accepted for cash payment. Money transfers are not usually possible, as using International account is not very common yet. Credit cards (Visa or Master Card) are accepted in some hotels, restaurants and mini markets. Travel Cheques are rather difficult to change.
