Thailand Currency Guide
The currency used in Thailand is the Thai Baht.
ATMs in Thailand can be found in the tourist areas of the major cities, resorts and towns. Most of these machines are operated by Cirrus or Plus and will have an English option available. If you plan on withdrawing money or using your credit card while travelling, don't forget to notify your bank before you go for security purposes and to see what international withdrawal fees may apply to your card.
Before you leave home, don't forget to convert some of your Australian Dollars into Thai Baht to have with you when you arrive in Thailand. Thai Baht are available to purchase from Travel Money OZ before you fly.
If you'd like the security that a credit card offers while travelling without the risk of racking up debt, consider purchasing a prepaid travel money card. A Multi-currency Cash Passport™ lets you to load your money in the form of Thai Baht and other major currencies onto the card. Your money can then be accessed at various ATMS and used wherever MasterCard® is accepted. The Multi-currency Cash Passport card has both a security pin and signature required for safe spending.
