Changing Banknote For Smaller Denomination

Postby Naga » Tue Jan 24, 2023 9:18 am

Every time I attempt to convey to a bank teller that I want to exchange a thousand THB banknote for 10 one-hundred THB banknote, they look at me like I'm from Mars.

I'm down to drawing pictures to get them to understand me (draws 1000 THB banknote then ten 100 THB bills). Ok, now they look at me like I'm from Jupiter.

What is the proper phrase to use to ask a teller to exchange the thousand THB banknote to an equal amount of one-hundred THB banknotes.

I thought you might appreciate this posting from Pantip (the translation is mine):

"ถ้าไปขอแลก (เอาเงินสดไปแลก) บางแบงค์ บางสาขา ไม่ค่อยอยากให้แลกครับ
ผมใช้วิธีถอนเงินด้วยสมุด บช. แต่ขอแบงค์ 20 ล้วน ปึกละ 100 ใบก็ 2 พัน" []

[If I go [to the bank] and I request small bills (in exchange for large bills), some banks and bank branches will not do the exchange for you. The method I use is to bring my account book to do a withdrawal transaction. I ask that the withdrawal be composed exclusively of 20 baht bills. Each bundle of 20 baht bills is made up of 100 bills, for a total of 2,000 baht.]

สมุด บช. = สมุดบัญชี = bankbook
