UK Pound v Thai Baht and other currencies


Recommended Posts

Living with cross currency rates can be a nightmare, but we have to accept it if we receive an income in 1 currency and then transfer to the other, I’ve been living with this for over 20 years, I use 3 main currencies, I have investments in 3 main currencies, however the USD is and always will be the central currency for the world. It goes up and goes down, we could right pages and pages of why the THB has been strong when it doesn’t make any sense when you look at the figures, but hey ho, lets ride the wave of life and enjoy the journey.

 

We could look back and say, “I wish I had done that” but we can’t go back. Prepare accordingly plan wisely and accept what YOU have done.  

Is yes. Always will be, very unlikely.

Yep, Brexit has allowed the UK to start vaccinating all it's citizens now, while Europe is still mired in red tape. Project fear has failed.

BREXIT and COVID Vaccinations!

It's all of the above mentioned, combined with the pound falling into very negative territory with the uncertainty of the deal/no deal exit. The uncertainty has gone, which combined with the vaccines

The good old Honey Hotel, my hotel of choice for many years from 1987. Have you seen this?

So now you've no idea what business they are in or what they do. At least TRANSFERwise gave you a heads up.

Of course I know what business they are in. I have been with them for over 2 years and this week they sent me an email explaining what differences the name change means to me.

 

No difference at all.

 

Possibly for someone starting out and looking to transfer money there may be a problem, so simply Google money transfers from UK to Thailand.

It's very shady when a company uses such a generic word for their name like this.

 

It achieves only one thing - it makes searching for webpages where they're mentioned much harder.

 

I've only came across this once before and the company was an out and out fraud with a name so very generic it was almost impossible to find much on them.

 

Just go to Google and type in Wise. It may hard to find as it is item #4 out of About 152.000.000 results (0,49 seconds)

Its quite mind boggling how many have no idea how foreign exchange is calculated with two pairings making up the number crunch (except Dollar/Baht)

Still so many that think theres a little man in an exchange booth who thinks we'll give Stering this today and the Euro that and so on

 

Quite astonishing you'd expect the odd or or two but its at least 50% of TV posters

Completely agree, sooooooo may TV members have no idea or are unable to trust using the WWW to send money, I have been using the WWW for last 18 years for online transactions and so far not an issue. wake up People
