International VISA Card issues when using ATMs in Indonesia

Just a warning, since 1st October, there is some kind of issue using Visa Credit or Visa Debit cards to withdraw funds or get account balances at ATMs in Indonesia. Multiple banks are affected. Information is scarce. Some banks have put up signs at ATM machines advising of the issue. The issue is occurring in Lombok as well as Bali.

If you are not already on your trip, consider bringing cash. Try to make sure your hotel has safe facilities.

Budget hotels and home stays in Lombok and .Gilis rarely have credit card facilities so you need to pay them by cash. Upmarket hotels usually can offer credit card facilities. Many stores do not accept credit card in Lombok.
