Hello,

Is there any ATM machines in Kuta, Lombok?? When I get there, I am hoping there is a place to pull out Rupiahs.

Thanks. Joel

Joel,

If you will be traveling thru Denpasar, you will have lot of choices.

There are lot of ATMs in Lombok. I hope someone will post about ATMs in Kuta.

There are no ATMS in Kuta, the closest are in Praya 25kms away, so make sure you pick up your rupiah en route.

I had a similar question.....

We will arrive in Mataram and then will stay in Mansit a few nights before going to Gili Air. Where is the best place to "stock up" on cash before going to Gili Air?

Senggigi? If we go to Senggigi in the evening for dinner would that be our best bet? Or I would assume there is an ATM at the Mataram airport?

Best to change money in Senggigi. There are ATMs there, and several money changers on the main street. My favorite is at the top end of town, just as you come into Senggigi at the bottom of the hill on the right. It is a wartel and money changer and they have good rates. I've never had a problem with money changers in Senggigi like people experience in Bali (i.e. rip-offs, etc). Otherwise there are changers further along the road on the right and left, and the post office as well. All advertise their rates on a sign board out front. There is no money changer in Mangsit other than at the big hotels, which would not be good rates. You're better off doing a quick trip into Senggigi to get money if you need to.

I don't recall if there is an ATM at arrivals at the airport, I've never looked for one. I usually get a few days worth of rupiah in Bali before going to Lombok.
Also, Bali usually has a slightly better rate than Lombok (more competition). Lombok has much better rates that on the Gili.

PostSubject: money changer   Fri Apr 23, 2010 2:29 pm

An other good place to change money is Toko Mas Melati in Cakra.It,s on the corner by the trafficlights and crossing where the jalan pejanggik goes over in the jalan seleparang.It,s on the right and not so far away from Toko Melody and the old Kentucky fried(left side).These Chinese brothers,in fact the owners of Lombok, have very good rates and are the biggest moneychangers of Lombok.Also nice people to do business with.

PostSubject: You might want to get some more information   Sat Apr 24, 2010 1:17 am

Hi,

You may want to verify the following information:

1. Currencies they accept.
2. Their denominations.

If you plan to get Visa On Arrival, this applies to that also.

I hope Gemma, Tjabamerah or Freogirl will react to this message.

By "they" do you mean money changers?

I've reserached and found out that other currencies are widely accepted on Bali and Java. I guess I thought it would be the same for Lombok.

Can anyone clarify?

PostSubject: The brothers   Sat Apr 24, 2010 2:50 am

The brothers accept every currency from singapore dollar till danish krone.If it isn't false they accept it.Small amounts no problem but very hughe amounts also no problem.They accept more foreign cash money than every bank in lombok does.Stronger than that,the most banks say go whit your foreign money to the brothers.

^Thanks. Can you explain where Cakra is? We are staying in Mansit for two nights. Not sure if Cakra is near us. Not sure if Cakra is the name of a town or a store Smile

Toko Mas Melati is also where I would recommend if you were changing large amounts of money. But it probably isnt worth going there especially, if you are just changing a few days worth. Cakra is short for Cakranegara, close to Mataram and infact usually considered Mataram - it is where Mataram Mall is.

The money changer I mentioned in Senggigi also accepts just about every currency you can imagine, so definitely Canadian dollars. While the one in Chakra is also a good one to use, it is not that convenient to get to if you are staying in Mangsit/Senggigi and you would not want to do a special trip. Plenty of good money changers available in Senggigi. The one I mentioned usually has the best rates, clean money in the denominations you want. If you are changing a large amount (several hundred dollars) he will also negotiate a slightly better rate.

Also, you can pay VOA in most major currencies, you don't need to change USD especially. The only downside is that their conversion rate is not great. If you can buy USD cheaply at home, or already have some, use it for the VOA. But don't sweat it, the difference will only be very small amount of money if you pay VOA with, and get a poor exchange on Canadian dollars.

Also other currencies are accepted on Lombok in the major tourist area of Senggigi. Money changing options are limited on Gilis and in Kuta Lombok.

I wonder how often money changers in Lombok, or Bali for that matter, are asked to change Indian rupee? The money changer I mentioned is hooked into an international forex system, so he would be able to do it but he would likely offer a terrible exchange rate. Or he may not do it as it would not be worth his while given he would have little opportunity to trade the currency

why don't you try and report back your results?
