Money/exchange rate

What, do the season Dubai travellers reccommend, exchange money at home or wait and do it in Dubai for a better rate? Also regarding Travels cheques, is finding places to exchange them for cash easy enough?

Thanks

You get a slightly better rate at the airport than here, forget the travellers cheques.

Much better rate at the exchange in the airport, just after immigration and before you get your bags.

Never taken travellers cheques to Dubai. Just exchanged about £200 when I get there and use the ATM mahcines, which are everywhere, if I need anything else.

Ah thanks, that was what i was thinking!! I am arriving at about 5am in the morning, will the exchange desk still be open?

If not i will just use cash machines, hopefully get a good rate that way..
