Best GBP TO THB RATES

Post by pipadoo » November 21, 2017, 1:06 pm

I saw an item on ThaiVisa where best exchange rates were achieved using independent exchange booths in Pattaya
Anyone got any experience of getting better than bank rates in Udonthani?

I think I looked at these initially a few years back but at the time they wasn't dealing in Thai baht,peer to peer seems to be the way to go ,another nail in the coffin for banks,cheers for the info

I agree Transferwise. Always good exchange rates and easy to use. Last time I got my Thai baht in my Thai bank account in 24 hours. Great reasonably priced service.

Hi rockfossil. Super rich in Khon kaen is OPPOSITE the main post office which is beside the police station. There is no big sign and one must pass through a paper shop to find it . They are very helpfull also. It is in the same street as Roma Hotel but about 1 kilometer furter along that street.

A few gold shops in Udon will often give an excellent rate also.

Don't get over-exicited ;)
That rate only applies to 50-pound notes changed at their Ratchadamri, Vibhavadee 22 and JTC branches in BKK. The KK rate is 43.45. For smaller bills you'll get 43.35, which still is a bit better than the banks, of course.
