The official currency is the Indonesian Rupiah (IDR). Better get a money converter on your phone to manage your expenses more easily.
Credit/debit cards are accepted in middle range (and over) hotels as well as in expensive shops and restaurants with an added fee. It’s easier to go withdraw money from ATMs, they are easily found in Bali as well as in Lombok. You will also find banks and trustworthy exchange offices in airports and big cities.

Getting a moped is probably the best option if you want to be independent but we made the itineraries to be followed with a car.
To rent a car, no need to book it beforehand because prices fluctuante a lot and you will probably get a better deal last minute.
You will just need an International Driving Permit (same to rend a moped).
CAUTION : Very few car rental agencies will allow you to go to Lombok with your car or motocycle. BE sure to check with your agency before going, or take the airplane or ferry to get to the other island.
And about the steering wheel, well it’s on the right side of the car and Scots drive on the right side of the road … So most of us will need a little adjustment.
