Thailand: how its currency compares

  • One of the reasons millions of tourists flock to Thailand every year is the favourable exchange rate. The Thai baht compares well with most European and North American currencies

  • You’d normally pay an arm and a leg for stunning white beaches, fragrant cuisine and buzzing nightlife. Not so in Thailand. No wonder it’s one of the world’s most popular holiday destinations of the last decade

  • It’s possible to get by on a budget of a few hundred baht per day by staying in cheaper hostels, using local transport, splurging on expensive meals out

  • Street food can be a good option to keep costs down but you may need an adventurous palate

  • Quieter islands like Ko Chang, national parks like Khao Yai and Khao Sok, or rural Isaan in the north of the country see far fewer tourists

  • Another way to beat the crowds and save money is to visit in the low season of July and August, when prices will be at their lowest

Some common questions

  • The currency of Thailand is the Thai baht (THB). The baht is subdivided into 100 satang. Notes come in denominations of 20, 50, 100, 500, and 1,000 baht. Coins are available in 1, 2, 5, and 10 baht, and 25 and 50 satang.

  • Exchange rates between currencies fluctuate often, driven by factors such as market demand and economic conditions, both in your destination and here at home.

    You can check the rates you'll get if you order foreign currency from us online today using our currency converter tool. We offer better rates the more travel money you buy, too. Rates in branch may differ from those available online.

  • The exchange rate between Thai baht (THB) and pound sterling (GBP) varies. These fluctuations can be due to various factors, including economic conditions and market demand.

    With Post Office, you'll get a better rate if you buy travel money online and the larger your order. You can calculate the Thai baht you'll get for your pound online at today's rates using our currency converter tool.
