Changing Baht back to Sterling.

Recommended Posts

Never had a reason to do this before but I reckon I'll have over 60,000 baht I need changing back to Sterling. 

Anyone know the best way to do this? 

Cheers 

Steve.

Have a UK friend that lives here and still has a bank account in the UK take your 60,000B and then transfer the Sterling equivalent from his UK account to your UK account. Saves him from having to transfer living expenses from the UK to here and helps you out. I'd help you out, but I'm a Yank.

Apart from selling it back to the bank, selling to a Thai you know or putting it into a Thai account not sure..

NM Money have pretty good buy back rates in UK

https://www.nmmoney.co.uk/travel-money/sell-unused-travel-money 

60000 will give you £1411 losing you around £60 at today's rate I think

Maybe try there.

 

Cheers Roomark. I'll have a look into that as it doesn't sound too bad to me.

If its sterling on the ground you are looking for in Pattaya and any other currency, I used this place for Sterling and Yuan

Its an art and furniture shop at the front but at the back they have a currency booth and at the time I was getting the best rates i could for hard cash..

My bad for using poor sentence structure. I should have wrote "If you have a UK friend that lives here...".

I do have a couple of UK friends here, but they're on pensions so not good candidates for helping your move money out of Thailand.

I'd have to pass on that branch has have never used it...... I would suggest ask what the buy rate is for Baht than take a step backwards and work out the percentage on the spread. Anything between 0-2% is good to go. Bear in mind spread back in uk is consistently 15% give or take

Lol! 

I was originally holding the money back to use on a Vietnam trip but that idea has been binned as I'm ready for home. 

I'll probably do what RR has suggested to be honest as I don't have work right now and the money will come in handy back in the UK. 

Nice thought though!

You could try ‘The Bank’ an exchange shop in Soi Rungland opposite the telephone exchange building on Pattaya Tai. 

It is a Chinese/Thai place and the amount of currency that changes hands in there is incredible, lots of tour operators etc use it, they always give a slightly better rate than normal banks when buying baht.
