One always tends to avoid money exchanges which charge a commission for exchanging money. But you should be aware that a “commission free” tag does not necessarily get you the best exchange rate. It is advisable to pay the commission and get a better exchange rate for your money. Do the math yourself and decide if you are getting a fair rate.
Thankfully, turning your foreign currency into UAE dirhams is no hassle in Dubai. Whether you are visiting Dubai on holiday, living in Dubai and looking to send money back home at a good rate, Dubai has a list of trusted and reliable money exchanges.
