Where to buy Thai bahts in India?- Forex dealers in India
Buy Thai bahts in India and not in Thailand. You’ll get ripped off on the exchange rate in Thailand. Indian rupee is not an important currency in Thailand. Find out where Thai bahts can be bought in Indian cities.
Thai bahts can be bought at foreign exchange dealers in India. The exchange rate often does not reflect the published rate online. Buying Thai baht in India is going to be higher than the exchange rates offered by banks. This is a list of businesses that sell Thai bahts. All the major cities are covered here including Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Kolkata, Chandigarh and Panjim. More cities will be added progressively.
Most banks do not sell or do not stock sufficient Thai bahts so it is observed that it is not easy to source Thai bahts generally at Indian banks. So walking in to a branch and expecting to instantly buy Thai bahts is a bit of a hassle. The easier way is to inquire the rates from different Forex dealers are get the best rate. This applies mainly to buying Thai bahts in cash. The big travel companies like Cox and kings and Thomas cook also sell Thai bahts but Their rates seem to be higher than small dealers in various Indian cities.

How much INR or THB can you carry into Thailand?
You can literally carry any amount of money into Thailand. However you can only take 50,000 Thai baht out in cash. So if you are carrying a lot of cash in excess of $5000 you may be questioned in India but not when you arrive in Thailand. If you want to carry liquidity carry a few debit cards and buy your Thai baht in Thailand and Sell your Thai baht in India.
Should I carry USD or THB into Thailand?
Well you can take the USD anywhere in the world. If you want to be careful not to spend too much on conversions and re-conversions. I would highly recommend you to carry THB in Thailand and that works in your favor in terms of ease of use and conversion fees.

Review: Shanti Forex is definitely better than any multinational Forex in Hyderabad, They could get me the best price for Thai baht and could deliver 90,000 Thai baht in one afternoon in cash. The contact person Harsh was very polite and knowledgeable about Thai baht rates in Hyderabad, I had called Thomas cook before I called them and i found a significant difference in exchange rates and charges. I would highly recommend Shanti Forex to anyone who wants Thai baht in Hyderabad.

Phone: 080 43691243
Review: This currency exchange buys and sells Thai baht in Bangalore. I called them to check their buying rate. They said they could purchase Thai baht at 1.90 when the current market rate is 1.85INR to 1THB- pretty good rates. It’s quite a big difference and imagine if you sold your Thai bahts at the Bangalore airport then you probably would get much less INR. I would certainly recommend Poundwize Forex.

Where to buy Thai baht in Kolkata?
Thai baht can be bought at these legal RBI registered cureency exchanges in Kolkata. You are likely to get better rates than in the Kolkata Airport.If you are transiting Kolkata and not familiar with the city I would suggest you buy Thai baht at the airport although the exchange rate may be less favorable. The hassle outside the airport, the sheer poverty and dirtiness of this city can be shocking. The airport itself isn’t much even by Indian standards. But if you are comfortable venturing out and being mobbed by Taxi drivers you can go and get your Thai bahts at these places listed here. This list has been verified and is the latest.
