There are many banks in Flores both government and private bank and they have ATMs where you can access your international bank account or change currencies. Most dive operators, 5-star hotels and luxury villas do accept credit cards although smaller, local-run establishments do not. We recommend that you bring sufficient Indonesian cash with you in cases of ATMs not working or if systems are down. Exchanging currency is also an option but better to be on the safe side and avoid matters that could be time consuming or inconvenient. There are official money changers available in both Labuan Bajo and Maumere, however in other parts of Flores; you will have to head to bank offices during office hours to conduct any money changing activities and transactions.
