    I am going to Thailand at the end of the month and was wondering what i should do for my for my travel money, I have seen these travel credit cards which seem to be the best value but I am unsure on how they work. Just wondering if anyone could give me any advice on what to do.

    Thanks

    Note that ATMs in Thailand charge £5 per withdrawal using a foreign card, so avoid frequent small withdrawals; in some banks you can take cash 'over the counter' on your credit card without fee.

    For exchanging cash, rates are better in Thailand than in UK - but not the terrible airport rates from bank booths on arrival at BKK, go downstairs to the exchanges at the rail link terminal.

    Agree with eDicky about changing £sterling at BKK on arrival.

    There are quite a few kiosks on the Arrivals floor.....avoid the lot. Go down to the Basement Air Link level, and onto the concourse. There's a few kiosks there, have a look round, and you'll probably find that Super Rich offers the best rate.

    There are two SuperRich at the Airport Link. One Green and one Orange. Green often slightly better.
