Make sure you have a photo and some US$ - exact amount, it is cheaper than paying in baht. Price varies according to country.
I'd also suggest withdrawing Thai baht at an ATM in Thailand, and changing it to kip in Laos, the withdrawal limits at ATM's in Laos are quite low, hence more withdrawals and fees.
