Similarly, if you are leaving Bangkok and want to change your left over Thai Baht into another currency, it will be a good idea to come to level B1 before going to the check-in counters. Keep reading...
|Money Exchange Counters at Level B1 Suvarnabhumi Airport Bangkok|
Arrival / Departure Time is Important
You will certainly get some extra Thai Baht in exchange for your money at the exchange counters at level B1 but you need to keep your time of arrival in mind. The exchange counters in the transit area are always open but those at level B1 will close at night. I will give exact timings a little later in this page. While arriving into Bangkok, let us assume it will not be possible for you to get to level B1 by 9.45pm, it will be good to exchange some your money into Thai Baht in the transit area for your immediate needs. Once you are out of the transit area, exchange rates almost anywhere in the city will be better than the transit area rates. In other words, either you change money at level B1 or in the city, you benefit from better exchange rates as compared to the transit area rates. While departing from Thailand, if you need to get rid of your left over THB, please read this article of mine to see where you can get the best exchange rates in Bangkok city.
Exchange Counters at level B1
|Super Rich (Thailand) Currency Exchange Level B1 Suvarnabhumi Airport Bangkok|
During my visit there in December 2016, I counted at least six exchange counters at level B1. My favourite Super Rich (Thailand) and the second favourite Super Rich (1965) were both there. Super Rich (Thailand) is the exchange company that offers the best exchange rates in Thailand. That was true even at their Suvarnabhumi (B1) exchange counter. As expected, Super Rich (1965) followed closely. Two types of exchange rates are displayed at these counters - Buy Rates and Sell Rates. For example, Super Rich (Thailand) displayed USD Buy Rate as 35.57 and USD Sell Rate as 35.65. This means that if you want to buy THB in exchange for USD, you will get 35.57 THB for every US Dollar. If you want to sell your left over THB, you will need to pay 35.65 THB for every US Dollar. The buy-sell spread between the rates at these exchange counters is really narrow and the the best exchange service for a customer is always the one that offers the minimum spread. Worst exchange services like those in the airport transit areas always keep the spread at the maximum. They charge highest premium while selling a currency to you but offer the lowest rate while buying a currency from you.
Thanks to these exchange counters at Suvarnabhumi level B1, if you are arriving or leaving at the right time, you can take advantage of the best possible exchange rates.
Level B1 Exchange Counter Open - Close Timings
Super Rich (Thailand) exchange counter at level B1 of Suvarnabhumi Airport opens everyday between 6.30am and 10.00pm and Super Rich (1965) counter opens everyday from 6.00am to 11.00pm. Apart from these two the other exchange counters are likely to observe similar timings. The several ATMs next to the exchange counters are, however, available 24/7.
