                  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

                    You can use Click & Collect to arrange a time to pick up your Thai Baht as part of your weekly shop, either from a Tesco Travel Money bureau or customer service desks. You can also use our home delivery service, which is free for online orders of £500 or more.

                    Exchange rates can change throughout the day and may vary depending on whether you buy in-store, online, or over the phone.

                      Some common questions about the Thai Baht

                      The Thai Baht is the official currency of Thailand and it’s issued by the Bank of Thailand. You’ll often see it abbreviated to THB and its currency symbol is ฿.

                      Thai Baht coins are available in denominations of 1฿, 2฿, 5฿ and 10฿, while the banknotes are 20฿, 50฿, 100฿, 500฿ and 1000฿. You may also come across 10฿ notes, but these are no longer being printed however the old notes are still in circulation.

                      One Thai Baht can be subdivided into 100 Satang and there are 25 and 50 Satang coins. These have a very low value, however, and are usually given away as tips or donations.

                        The only country to officially accept Thai Baht is Thailand.

                          Before banknotes were introduced in the 19th century, Thailand used coins, pot duang (handmade silver coins that were folded or bent into shape) and baked clay coins. Today, Thai Baht banknotes are made from a very durable cotton fibre and each denomination has a different thickness and distinct feel.

                          Thai Baht banknotes feature a picture of the king and in some shops, you may see notes displayed as a sign of respect. Carrying notes in your back pocket is frowned upon, as is stepping on money, as both can be thought of as being disrespectful to the monarchy.
