Best rate about 44.5 baht to £ today.

Use this: https://daytodaydata.net/

Outside Bangkok rates are usually lower.

The official rate is about 44.5 baht to the pound but you will not get anything close to that except with a good credit card.

"The official rate is about 44.5 baht to the pound but you will not get anything close to that except with a good credit card."

You can get that rate at money changers, even at BKK airport today, no need for a credit card.

Agree with Ray2Travel

Also as the OP is from UK unless using a Halifax Clarity Credit Card or Nationwide Platinum Credit card on which there are no fees charged by the card issuer, it is not advisable to draw cash on a credit card as interest is charged from date of withdrawal until paid in full and you still have to pay the Thai bank withdrawal fee of 220 baht unless you can persuade a Thai bank to let you use the card in the bank and not in its ATM.

Another vote agreeing with Ray and Arandora, I am not sure exactly what you mean by "the official rate" jst but if you mean the XE inter bank rate then at the time of the your posting it was 44.7 and the rate available at the best exchanges in Thailand was 44.5, and i for one would call that pretty close.

As a FYI for UK travellers the Barclaycard platinum travel credit card is now giving no fee foreign spending and ATM withdrawals (until 2022) and no interest charged on cash withdrawals if payed in full by the statement due date not from the date of withdrawal.

Thanks for info re Barclaycard. It's an extension of the previous offer that ended at the end of August.

"if payed in full by the statement due date not from the date of withdrawal."

Just for further clarification that is the case with the Halifax and Nationwide card and it is the full balance including cash withdrawals and purchases that has to be paid off.
