Mau Ke Mana sometimes receives complaints about how our fares are different to those offered on Indonesian airline websites. The biggest reason is Paypal’s fees and poor exchange rates.

Now, Australians can get a cheaper fare, by paying through bank transfer.

During a recent visit, David and Chris completed the paperwork to become an officially registered business in Australia. As a result, Mau Ke Mana now has a bank account in Australia too, at Bendigo Bank. Payment usually takes 1-2 working days to be processed.

Paying by bank transfer is also suitable for other travel agents and corporate clients whose accounting rules forbid the use of Paypal.

If you are travelling from Russia to Indonesia and would like to book a domestic flight or train, now you can pay in Rubles.

Paypal recently added Russian Rubles to its list of accepted currencies.

Previously, Russian clients paid in US Dollars. However, paying in one’s “home” currency is cheaper because it avoids credit card fees for currency conversion.
