Current Exchange rate in Dubai


I was wondering if anybody knows the current (last few days) exchange rate at airport or mall for DHS. I have a few left over from last trip but trying to work out if its worth waiting until I get there to get some more?

The UAE dirham has a fixed exchange rate to the USD of 3.67 (avg.).

Current exchange rates can be found on various internet sites such as: www.xe.com/currencycharts/…

I think you mean you have dirham left over from last time and not dollars

It's always a better exchange rate in Dubai on any given day so I'd be waiting till I got there to get some more, however, the pound is at a 12 month high against the dirham today - by the time you get to Dubai it may have fallen so, regrettably, as none of us has a crystal ball, it's your decision.

Change today in UK and potentially get more than you would in Dubai next Tuesday OR wait and get more in Dubai next Tuesday than you would in the UK.

If any of us knew the answer to the question of what will happen on the currency markets we'd be far too busy spending our many millions to look at TA and be sailing round the world on a big yacht

Was in Dubai, mid Nov. When we got there, the rate was better than UK. It went up slightly each day, thankfully ! When we left, we got 5.8 to the £. This was in x change bureau in Mall of the Emirates. Good luck with the rates !

thanks for your help everybody. i understand the rates can rise or fall i just wanted a daily comparison to see if i was better off here or there. From the answers on here the rates are still much better in Dubai and i have now saved the dubai airport exchange rate which today is showing as 6.03 the best i can get here today delivered is 5.88 so definately going to wait until i arrive next thursday morning.
