Buy before you fly

Benefits of planning ahead

Buying your Thai Baht in advance means you’ll be able to pay for transport – including tips for taxi drivers – and food and drink easily, as soon as you arrive.

Taking Thai Baht with you means you can relax and focus on enjoying your holiday without having to worry about finding a cash machine. It’s also important to remember that ATMs in Thailand may charge you a fee if you withdraw Thai Baht when you are there.

Exchange rates can fluctuate. When you buy your currency in advance, it means you can be sure of what rate you are getting. If you withdraw cash while you are away, you may not get the same exchange rate.

Get your currency when it’s convenient for you

Use Click & Collect and arrange to pick up your Thai Baht as part of your weekly shop, either from a Tesco Travel Money bureau or selected customer service desks. Or, you could try our home delivery service – free on all orders of £500 or over.

Exchange rates can change throughout the day and will vary depending on whether you are buying in store, online or over the phone.

Handy information about Thai Baht (THB)

Thai Baht fast facts

  • Cash machines in Thailand charge around 200฿ per transaction, not including your home bank’s fee for international cash withdrawals.
  • 1, 5 and 10 Satang are rarely seen in circulation and many small shops do not accept them.

Currency denominations

Thai Baht Satang: 1 Satang, 5 Satang, 10 Satang, 25 Satang, 50 Satang

Thai Baht: 1฿, 2฿, 5฿, 10฿, 20฿, 50฿, 100฿, 500฿, 1000฿

Remember, you can exchange any leftover Baht notes when you arrive home, although you might not be able to exchange smaller Baht denominations and Satang coins.

If you’ve got any Thai Baht left over after your trip, you can exchange notes of 20฿ or more at Tesco Travel Money bureaux. When purchasing Baht, remember that Tesco only sells denominations of 100฿ or more.

Important information

Card fees and cancellations

Buying foreign currency using a credit or debit card

No matter how you purchase your travel money, whether it be in store, online or over the phone, you will not be charged any card handling fee by us. However, regardless of your card type, your card provider may apply fees, e.g. cash advance fees or other fees, so please check with them before you purchase your travel money.

Click & Collect cancellations

You can cancel a Click & Collect order any time prior to collection. We'll refund you with the full Sterling amount that you paid for your order, unless you cancel less than 24 hours before your collection date, in which case we'll charge a £10 late cancellation fee.

We are unable to refund any fees charged by your card issuer, so please contact them if you have any further queries.

Currency buy back

When you get home, we'll buy your travel money back

Let us turn your unspent holiday money into Pounds. It couldn't be simpler.

Just pop into one of our in-store Travel Money Bureaux when you get back to the UK and we'll buy back your unwanted currency. We buy back in all the currencies we sell in most banknote values and also the Multi-currency Cash Passport™.

It doesn't matter where you bought your money, we'll still buy it back - even if you didn't buy it from a Tesco Travel Money Bureau.

Price Match

How our Price Match works

If you find a better exchange rate advertised by another provider within three miles of your chosen Tesco Travel Money Bureau, on the same day, we'll match it.

Price Match only applies in store on a like-for-like basis on sell transactions and does not apply to any exchange rate advertised online or by phone. This is not available in conjunction with any other offer. We reserve the right to verify the rate you have found and the three mile distance (using an appropriate route planning tool).
