Currency Exchange


I have read through other posts that the best exchange rate is just after picking up your luggage the kiosk by the duty free?

Does anyone know if this will be open 24 hours? As my flight arrives at 00:15am. The best rate I got so far is AED 6.81 for £1 from the post office, but I thought I might take the gamble and get all my currency from the kiosk in Dubai Ariport.

The exchange just after duty free will be offering about 7.1 based on today's rate in local paper.

I am almost certain it's open 24 hours but there is more than one and the rest are situated outside in the arrivals hall.

Don't touch the post office, their rates are awful particularly if you bring currency back home with you to change back into pounds sterling. Get your Dhms in Dubai.

I broke my own rule last year and used them for Singapore dollars, the spread when I turned what was left back into pounds was 15%

I noticed that the rate of exchange was better at Dubai airport before you go through passport control.

Once you arrive at the arrival terminal where you look out for your transfers, I noticed the rate was lower at the bureaus there.

Thanks for all your advice, I'll go for the one before passport control.
