    Or as I do, contact your money manager (or the person you deal with at your bank) and e-mail them your details (your wire transfer account information here in Thailand) and ask them to transfer it to you.

    Send the money in GBP and let the Thai receiving bank exchange it into THB

    Interesting, what UK bank do you use, i use three and in all cases i have to physically call them to make a transfer, due to money laundering laws, they have to by law read you a disclaimer and you have to tell them what the money is for

    all the banks are about the same, but if you are changing a large amount say 20,000 then it makes sense to use a currency dealer as you will get spot rate,works out about 12,000baht and only a small charge this end.
