Looking for a bit of advice.
I've been reading up on here that it seems to be best practice to take Pound Sterling to Thailand and exchange when you are over there (Hotels/Banks etc- albeit notes have to be new) for a much better exchange rate than here.
Currently the best rate I can find here is 51.888 on Money Corp which seems terrible in comparison to the 54.24 I got on my credit card the other day when paying for Bangkok air flights to Ko Samui from Bangkok including fees.
Does anyone happen to know what is the rough rate you are getting for pound sterling on the high street over there? I know it changes hourly but just a rough estimate would be good, and also, where are the best places to go? If there are any particular banks etc?
I'm trying to work out whether its better to take Sterling Cash or withdraw by ATM over there (which I gather also incurs a fee).
Thanks in advance
