Welcome to Hipfig’s Travel Guide series 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 Hipfig.com for more information or go to our Hipfig Travel Channel on YouTube and be sure to subscribe for regular updates.
