It is preferable to pay your balance in cash on arrival, any currency is acceptable.  When paying cash in foreign currency, please use newer, non-damaged bills. Old issue, marked or torn bills may not be acceptable.Even tiny tears or marks on a bill can make it unacceptable (sorry, this is Indonesian thinking!) We also have money-changer services. 

You may also pay your balance by Moneygram, Western Union or Bank Transfer.  Please confirm with us first and we will quote the total to be transferred in IDR as well as transfer information.  If paying by Bank Transfer, you must submit the transaction at least 3 weeks prior to arrival to allow for delays, which are common.

If you prefer to pay by Credit Card, you may do so on arrival via moneychanger, and extra fees of 7-10% will be charged.  Please also note that credit card transactions are occasionally problematic with some credit cards,  if this is the case with your card, payment by another method will be required.

If you pay your balance via PayPal we will charge an extra 5 Euro plus 5% of the balance to cover the PayPal fees
