Exchange rate

Hi all, does anyone know the current exchange rate in Dubai at the moment for dirham? I have changed some money already before I travel at the exchange rate of 4.6. I’m wandering wether it’s worth waiting until I get there to change the rest, if it’s not much better there I will change it all before I go. Thanks in advance x

The exchange rate when you use an ATM is the interbank rate so the rate is the best rate you can get BUT your bank may impose a charge for withdrawing your own money when you are abroad.

You will need to check with your bank as to what their charges are.
