on Dubai, United Arab Emirates. In this video, we'll be sharing your experiences
with currency exchange counters in Dubai. Our Dubai currency exchange guide
will help and guide you for your money exchange needs. The official currency in
Dubai is the UAE Dirhan abbreviated dhs or AED. The dirham rate is aligned and
fixed with the US dollar so the rate does not fluctuate or change if you're
changing USD. The exchange rate will be almost the same wherever you go, however
be aware that they (currency exchange counters) may charge different service fees. To change money in Dubai
was very simple and very accessible. Currency exchange counters are available
everywhere in Dubai like the airport, malls, major metro stations, and hotels.
At the Dubai Airport, there's a whole section for currency exchange in their
Arrival Hall. There are at least a handful of currency exchange counters and banks.
We even found a currency exchange counter at Al Rigga Metro station. You
can find the best rates at private currency exchange counters in Dubai like
Al Ansari Exchange, UAE Exchange, Al Ghurair Exchange, and Al Fardan Exchange. At any
of Dubai's malls like Dubai mall, Mall of Emirates, and City Centre Deidre there's a
whole section for banks and currency exchange counters. If you go to any of the big
malls, look around for the best rates and service fees. Any mall you enter in Dubai will have
at least one currency exchange counter or bank usually located on the bottom
floor. Currency exchange counters in malls usually follow the mall hours, but
banks are usually open between 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and then 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Saturday through Thursday. They're closed all day on Fridays. There are also lots
of ATM machines. Please check with your bank first to see if there are extra
fees involved for using your ATM or credit card in an ATM machine in Dubai
Use your credit card for purchases, it will give you the best exchange rate but
it's always a good idea to have cash on hand for small stores that don't accept
credit cards and some places even offer discounts. Happy Travels! Go to Hipfig.com
