Yes.

The usual advice applies: try to make sure there’s no writing on them, no tears etc.

Although you`re basically correct last trip i changed some twenties at a jomtien TT exchange, i didnt realise it at the  time but a note had a smallish tear, bloke behind the counter just got a bit of tape and did an on the spot repair, i actually noticed in quite few boothes around Pattaya they had rolls of tape precisely i assume for this problem, i suppose it will depend on whos serving you and how big any damage is, it dosnt alter the fact though that when changing money have notes in as good condition as possible.

Ok maybe.. 

I was under the impression that part of the design and the reason for bringing polymer in was that the notes can't be torn.

BofE had to backtrack on their ‘virtually indestructible’ claim pretty quickly though they’re much more durable than the old ones.

In the past I always brought £20's but with the current exchange rate and some of the price increases for company, it will be £50's in future.

I really dislike the polymer bills. All Canadian currency is plastic.

I carry my folded bills in my pocket. But these damn plastic notes tend to stick to my hand when I with draw it, and I've almost lost some.

I've never used a billfold for money, perhaps I'll have to start.  :Ignore1:

I contact mine (HSBC) through internet banking, giving them 48 hours notice to have £3k in Bank of England £50s for me and then go and collect from the branch.

I only give notice due to the fact I live in Scotland and want BoE 50s. You might not even need to give notice in England, depending on how much you want.

Thanks for the info, my banks secureid card failed so I was unable to investigate.
