Hotels and retailers offer currency exchange, though rates tend to be better at banks and authorised exchangers. All major credit cards (Visa, Mastercard and Amex) are accepted at most retailers and restaurants.

Do I need a passport and visa?

Australians with a current passport valid for at least 6 months after departure may travel through Thailand for 30 days without requiring a visa. Australian travellers entering Thailand overland can stay for 15 days without requiring a visa, For longer stays, travellers can obtain a a visa from the closest Embassy or Consulate of Thailand prior to departure. Departure taxes are generally included in airfares, however it is advisable to check at the time of booking. Flights with long stopovers will attract a departure tax of approximately 700 Baht to leave the airport. Please note that variations can occur with little or no notice. This information is subject to change and we recommend Australians refer to the Royal Thai Embassy website prior to departure.

Most resorts offer wireless broadband internet and popular tourist precincts also feature internet cafes. We recommend purchasing a local SIM for mobile phone and internet access.

Can I use my electrical plugs in Thailand?

Australian visitors cannot use their normal electrical plugs in Thailand, and will require an international adaptor. Thailand uses 220V AC electricity and most power outlets feature a two-prong round socket.

Do I need travel insurance?

Although travel insurance is no longer a mandatory entry requirement for travellers to Thailand, we strongly recommend purchasing cover prior to your trip to protect you in the event of overseas medical costs or cancellations. Whether your kind of holiday is found within the secure grounds of your beachside resort or diving deep beneath the waves, small accidents can become catastrophic without insurance. Whether your bag is lost in transit, goods are stolen or you fall ill, travel insurance is worth it for the peace of mind alone.
