Thai Baht

Thai Baht is the official currency of Thailand. According to SWIFT, as of October 2014, the Thai baht ranked as the tenth most frequently used world payment currency. Bank of Thailand is responsible for issuance of Thai Baht. The currency code for Baht is THB.

Foreign debit and credit card withdrawals from Thai ATMs incur a 150 or 200 baht fee levied by the local ATM owner, in addition to any fees added by your home financial institution. This is set to increase to 250 baht in August 2016.

  • Major credit cards such as Visa, Mastercard, JCB and American Express, are readily accepted at most hotels, airlines, restaurants and upscale merchants.
  • To prevent your credit/debit card from being declined, it is important to advise your card issuer of your travel plans in advance.
  • Some institutions routinely block/deny unexpected charges from Thai merchants for fear of possible fraudulent use.

THB is known to be an 'Exotic currency' – Exotic currencies are illiquid, lack market depth and trade at low volumes— and the prices in India are often unfavourable. This is because the supply of Thai Bahts is often scarce in India. It is, therefore, often a smart travel decision to carry US Dollars in place of Thai Bahts when traveling to Thailand and exchange the USD for THB in Thailand. As counterintuitive as it may seem, the conversion from INR-USD-THB can indeed be significantly cheaper than the direct conversion from INR-THB. We recommend customers to explore both options before deciding to convert THB into INR

HISTORY OF THAI BAHT

THAI BAHT is the name of the official currency of Thailand. The Bank of Thailand is the central authority that takes charge of the issuance of the currency. The BAHT is a very strong currency when compared to the other currencies of Asia. It is also widely used in the international market for payments.
The circulation of the Baht began as early as the 13th century, making it one of the oldest currencies. Baht coins were produced of solid silver until the 19th century when the country adopted the decimal-based system of the current age.
The currency has been pegged against the British pound sterling in the 20th century. The currency was also pegged to the Japanese Yen as well as gold, but that was only for a short period. Thailand allowed its currency to float in the foreign exchange market following the Asian Financial Crisis of 1997. This resulted in a high exchange rate of the Baht into the USD. The current exchange rate of 1 USD goes to as high as 30 Baht.

CONVERT THAI BAHT TO RUPEE

If you are planning to visit Thailand, exchanging your home currency into the Baht is the best travel plan that you can make. Being handy with local currency helps in making payments at the local places without any hassle. If you want to exchange rupees into Baht, you should first opt for exchanging rupees into the US dollar. This will assure you a good exchange rate as compared to exchanging rupees directly to Baht. Then once you reach Thailand, you can convert the USD into Baht.
Selling Thai Baht in exchange for a rupee is also possible. You can know about the Thai Baht rate today in India from the various money exchanging platforms. To know the live rate follow the website of BookMyForex.

BUY/SELL THAI BAHT in INR with BookMyForex

You can easily purchase foreign currency in India with banks or local vendors. These are the conventional options along with airports, though not the best ones. Banks provide you with an exchange rate that includes high mark-ups which eventually reduces the amount you get from the exchange. So when you plan to buy/sell THB online, choose BookMyForex. We, as an online currency exchange & remittance platform, offer the best exchange rate that is free of any hidden charges. The only charge you pay with us for any foreign exchange is the Government tax.
Another issue with banks and local vendors is that they do not provide you with an updated rate. However, with BookMyForex, you get the most current exchange rate. You can even freeze a rate and exchange your currency on that rate within the next 3 days. Alternatively, you can set a notification alert for us to inform you when the exchange rate matches your requirement.
