Changing Money

You can secure a more favorable exchange rate by waiting to convert your currency upon arriving in Bali. If you’re concerned about arriving without any local currency, consider exchanging a small amount before your departure, ideally at Australia Post where you won’t encounter any fees.

While in Bali, it’s crucial to exchange your money only at reputable and established locations. Avoid the allure of street money changers promoting exceptionally high rates, as dealing with them is akin to falling for a magician’s tricks – your funds may vanish right before your eyes! Here are some trusted places where we recommend exchanging your money:

Using ATMs

When using ATMs in South East Asia, including Bali, it’s essential to be aware of the increasing instances of card skimming. There have been numerous reports of such incidents in Bali. If you plan to use an ATM in Bali, ensure that it’s located in a highly visible and public area, preferably one with a security guard or within a resort or shopping mall. Avoid using ATMs at minimarts or Circle K stores to minimize the risk of card skimming.

Utelizing Debit and Credit cards

Using debit and Credit card in Bali is generally is generally secure at Major restaurants, resorts, and most retail stores readily accept card payments. However, it’s worth noting that taxis, small local eateries (known as warungs), beach bars, and market stalls typically require cash transactions.
