UAE Currency Guide


UAE uses the UAE Dirham.


ATM facilities can be found throughout the major cities in the UAE particularly in the main areas. If you plan on withdrawing money or using your credit card while travelling, don’t forget to notify your bank before you go for security purposes and to find out what international withdrawal fees may apply to your card.


Before you travel, it’s a good idea to convert some of your Australian Dollars into UAE Dirhams to have with you when you arrive. UAE Dirhams are available to pre-purchase from Travel Money Oz before you fly.

Credit Card

For large purchases, it’s a good idea to bring a credit card with you on your holiday to the UAE instead of carrying a lot of cash. If you don’t have a credit card, consider a debit credit card that allows you to access your savings account and the local currency from ATMs and wherever credit cards are accepted.
