Why Order Travel Money With TUI?
Getting the most from your UAE dirham on your trip
If you’re planning a trip to the United Arab Emirates, you’ll be needing some money for your holiday. The official currency of the Emirates is the dirham or AED, which has a fixed rate against the US dollar.
So, the exchange rate changes daily in line with the US$, but on average over the past year it’s been around AED 4.77 to £1.
Where to get your UAE dirhams
You can visit your nearest TUI Store to find out the best exchange rates for your UAE dirhams, or order them from TUI online. You can also check out our multi-currency TUI Travel Money card, which is completely free when you’re using it for UAE dirhams. It works just like a debit card, and you can use it in 36 million global locations.
Using your UAE dirhams
The UAE is the home of the big shopping mall, so don’t expect any haggling, though you can try it out in the souks. You’ll probably want to take at least Dhs1000 to get the best out of your holiday, but do try out our handy TUI calculator to get a better idea of your daily budget.
It’s normal to tip in restaurants unless a service charge is already included. Otherwise it’s up to you, but it’s usually good to give something to porters, and to round up taxi fares.
