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.
