Tarik Uang di ATM Luar Negri dengan CIMB

Tarik Tunai di CIMB Thai

Biasanya kalau saya berangkat ke luar negri, pasti sebelumnya sudah tukar mata uang negara tujuan di Indonesia. Money changer favorit saya adalah Peniti, (eh endorsement gratis nih), karena gak pake nawar lagi ratenya bisa dibilang kompetitif mendekati yang terbaik.

Tapi ada kalanya uang yang dibawa sampai sana tidak cukup akibat belanja atau pengeluaran yang melebihi perkiraan. Nah kebetulan saya punya tabungan di bank CIMB Niaga (lagi-lagi endorsement gratis), jadi coba saya share ilmunya dikit.

Btw, tarik tunai di ATM pake jaringan Maestro atau Cirrus tidak disarankan ya, selain kena spread kurs yang besar, juga kena biaya tarik tunai sekitar Rp 50rb-100rb. Apalagi tarik tunai pakai kartu kredit, BIG no-no.

5 Apps Penting iPhone untuk Travelling

1. Skyscanner

Membeli tiket pesawat sekarang sudah jamannya online. Hampir semua maskapai sudah menjual tiket lewat Internet, yang pasti sangat memudahkan kita. Tetapi akan lebih mudah lagi jika ada yang membantu kita memilih airlines yang paling murah untuk rute yang kita inginkan.

Skyscanner bekerja untuk kebutuhan ini. Cukup masukkan detil seperti destinasi dan tanggal, Skyscanner akan mencarikan airlines dan rute yang memungkinkan lalu diurutkan berdasarkan harga termurah. Kita bisa melakukan pencarian yang lebih detil seperti hanya rute direct, atau jam terbang pagi saja, dsb.

Skyscanner

Aplikasi ini kurang lebih sama seperti Kayak (yang lebih terkenal), kelebihan Skyscanner adalah bisa mendapatkan harga low cost carrier di Indonesia seperti Sriwijaya, Lion, dan Tiger. Kelebihan lainnya adalah fiturnya untuk melakukan mix-and-match flight pergi dan pulang, jadi ada kemungkinan harga termurah didapat dari maskapai pergi dan pulang yang berbeda.

Harga: Gratis.

Hotel Review: Amaris Cimanuk Hotel Bandung

On my recent visit to Bandung, I wanted to give a try to stay in one of Amaris chain hotels. Amaris is budget hotel brand by Santika Group, scattered across many cities in Indonesia. The 2-star Amaris hotels, can be found in Jakarta, Bandung, Semarang, Jogjakarta, even Ambon, published rates just below IDR 500,000 (\~USD 55). All Amaris may look the same, only three level tall, colourful design if you see hotel's facade.

[

Amaris in Bandung has 2 location to choose, one is at Cihampelas Road and the other at Cimanuk Road. I always try to avoid Cihampelas as the road is packed and jammed during weekend, so Cimanuk is better option when I bring my car. I booked directly via their call centre and I got rate IDR 450,000 for one Saturday night in Amaris Cimanuk, weekday must be cheaper.
