About the AUD to IDR exchange rate
It's easy to see the AUD to IDR exchange rate on XE, Yahoo or any other currency converter. It's the real exchange rate that is set by the foreign exchange market. It's also sometimes called the 'wholesale' rate or the 'interbank' rate because it's used for wholesale amounts between banks. It's the best rate to convert foreign currency but often, it's very hard to actually get.
Where is the best place to exchange AUD to IDR?
It's simple to buy Indonesian rupee in Australia online, but it may not necessarily be as fast as walking into a money changer. Services like Australia Post also offer a foreign exchange service online but it takes between two and five business days before the currency is ready for pick-up or delivery so you need to be organised!
Alternatively, buying your currency in Indonesia can be a good option but it all depends on where you go. The money changers in the centre of popular tourist destinations like Bali or Lombok tend to be more competitive than smaller stores in towns.
Only change money at the airport as a last resort. The exchange rates and fees at Australian airports are among the worst in the world so avoid it at all costs if you want to get the best bang for your buck.
How can I convert AUD to IDR at the best rate?
The key to finding the best foreign currency rate is to compare your options. Make sure that you compare not just the exchange rate, but the total cost of your currency including any service or delivery fees.

What is the best time to exchange AUD to IDR?
As a rule of thumb, if you are buying IDR with Australian dollars, you want the AUD/IDR exchange rate to be as high as possible. The higher the rate, the better it is for you. It means that you will receive more rupiah for the same amount of Australian dollars.
Unfortunately there isn't a particular day of the week or time of the day that is the best time.
While it's impossible to pick the perfect time, you can set up a free rate tracker to keep an eye on the rate.
Also keep in mind that if you buy it online, it may take 2-4 business days to arrive so make sure you finalise your financial transaction at least a week before you are due to travel overseas.
