Rob M, hi

Money changers in CGK operate only till 10 pm. But ATMs will be available at all terminals, after you clear immigration, in the baggage reclaim area. You can easily withdraw cash using your card, all major four are accepted in Indonesia.

YES, notify the bank about countries to visit before travel, the maximum amount of ATM withdrawal in Indonesia is the equivalent of 500 USD per transaction.

Some banks do issue you with Visa debit card which withdrawal amount is equal to credit card's limit. As long as you have cash within the limit, then you can withdraw money from any ATM machine bearing Visa logo.

Also, to answer your query, I strongly recommend you to exchange IDR before you land in Indonesia. You can do it in your home country or at the last transit point

ATMs are available 24/7. For those arriving at night time, of course, pre-changed IDR ( at the country of your origin) is recommended. Even small amount - for taxi etc.

If you have to buy your visa on arrival, you may be better off to pay in IDR - I think you can.

I remember it costs about €25, and as the IDR has lost value recently.

If you are friendly with a customers officer he might allow you to get IDR from an ATM and he might let you pay in IDR - but I am not sure.
