Buying with your baht
The Thai baht has been the official currency of Thailand since 1897, although it is thought to have been in circulation since as early as the 1400s. The currency originated as a unit of weight of corresponding value and coins were originally denominated by weight.
When you first arrive, make sure you have some 5 and 10 baht coins to hand so you can get the best price possible for your taxi – if they see that you don’t have anything smaller than a 50 baht note, they may try to charge you more.
Tipping isn’t really expected in Thailand, except for the service charge you often find in restaurants and hotels. In that instance, you are safe rounding up to the nearest 20 baht.
Frequently used banknotes
Baht is among the ten most used currencies in the world, and each single baht consists of 100 satang, though most Thai sellers don’t tend to trade in satang. The most commonly used banknotes are for 20 (green), 50 (blue), 100 (red), 500 (purple) and 1000 (brown) baht.

The Travelex credit card I purchased worked perfectly and so was highly convenient. I found that topping it up via the Travlex website was straightforward. I appreciate a good product and good service which made my travel considerably less stressful - once I had tried the card and fohnd it worked!Kyle Ralph Wilson

The idea of ordering money online was…
The idea of ordering money online was quite easy but I did not receive a notification when my cash was ready to collect and I had to follow up. The cash had bee delivered 2 days earlier than original planned which meant my post office was about to send it back. Thankfully they hadn't sent it back or else that could have caused major inconvenience when our trip is only a few days awayMishSimpson
Great service, quick turnaround - my order was ready 3 days before my allocated pick up day. Competitive rate.Nat
