I'm off to Turkey with the little one in July.  Rate exchange showing at 6.8 and the above offering  6.25 same as the Post Office so not too bad by any means.

When I was in Turkey 2 years ago it was 4.8 and 4.5 the year before.

There's over 1,3 THB difference per pound compared to Superrich. 

Not that close is it?

Would rather use Superrich at the airport if needed money as soon as we landed as long as flight times matched their opening times.

Just checked with my hotel in Marmaris. Their current rate is 6.5 to the £.  1/4 of a Lira better so on my usual £1000 exchange an extra 250 Lira if I change at the hotel.

In my experience I get the best rate if I just use the ATM with my debit card and don't accept conversion by the Thai bank operating the ATM. I've tested this in multiple countries and the results were pretty consistent. An additional advantage over buying a foreign currency at home is that it is much easier to judge how much you need. No chance of running short and a very limited amount left over, so nothing to convert back (at a loss).

 Live quote. Waste of time.

Am at a loss why anyone would use that but even more so whats the actual point of having currency back home. You cant spend it obviously and its obsolete on the motor over. Some might take 5000 or so home each trip to start off the next but even if you dont do that you can go down to the basement at Suvanabhumbi and obtain top rates away from the cartel smash and grab on arrivals and departures

Edited to add apologies to OP who is only giving out helpful info for some
