It is impossible for us to predict the best time to buy United Arab Emirates Dirham. We provide some historical exchange rate data in the chart above so you can see the overall trend, but beyond that we cannot offer any advice on when to buy. Our advice is to not worry too much about trying to perfectly time the market. Unless you are buying tens or hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of currency, the daily changes in exchange rates do not make a huge difference to the amount of currency you'll receive.
Yes, some currency suppliers do allow you to collect United Arab Emirates Dirham from them in person. We have a dedicated Click & Collect page where you can find the nearest supplier in your area. If you plan on collecting in person, we recommend ordering or reserving your United Arab Emirates Dirham online first on the supplier's website to guarantee the exchange rate. Some suppliers offer lower exchange rates if you walk in off the street, but you can usually order online in advance and collect your currency in store at the better online rate.
Most currency suppliers will dispatch your order on the same or next working day after they receive your payment, and all orders are sent via Royal Mail Special Delivery which is a fully-insured and guaranteed Next Working Day service. However, just in case any unexpected delays crop up we recommend ordering no later than 3 working days before you are due to travel. If you've left it too late for home delivery, check out our Click & Collect page to find a local United Arab Emirates Dirham supplier near you. We cover most UK airports, so in the worst case scenario you can reserve your currency online (at the better online rate) and pick it up from the departure lounge before you fly.
No. All currency is sent by Royal Mail Special Delivery which is a fully-insured and guaranteed Next Working Day service. Somebody at your address will need to sign for the package but if nobody is home when the postman attempts to deliver, they'll leave a missed delivery card and you can either collect the package from your nearest sorting office or arrange for it to be re-delivered on a more convenient day.
Generally, no. This is ultimately at the discretion of the currency supplier, but most suppliers will only deliver to the home address of the person paying for the currency (i.e. the card or bank account holder's address). This is for security reasons because a signature is required when the currency is delivered, and signatures from work or other addresses can be unreliable and difficult to prove.
All currency is sent by Royal Mail Special Delivery which is a fully-insured and guaranteed Next Working Day service. This type of postage is more secure than standard post and is meant specifically for high-value and important items because tracking is enabled by default and a signature is required as proof of delivery. It is very rare for a Special Delivery package to go missing, but in the unlikely event that it does you will be completely reimbursed by Royal Mail for the full value of the currency and the cost of postage.
The payment method you choose is important because it affects whether or not you pay any extra fees during checkout, and also whether you are financially protected in the unlikely event that something goes wrong with the supplier. We have written a more detailed guide about choosing a payment method on our blog: A guide to payment methods.
Most, but not all, currency suppliers have a minimum and a maximum amount you can order from them, however we automatically factor these into our comparisons so if you tell us exactly how much you want to spend we'll only return suppliers that can fulfill your request. Most suppliers also have a minimum amount that you can order from them to qualify for free home delivery; if you order less than this amount you can still get your order delivered by you'll have to pay for postage. Again, we automatically factor these charges into our comparisons so you don't need to worry about any hidden costs during checkout.
All of the currency suppliers we compare use SSL encryption as standard on their ordering pages. This means that when you place an order, a secure connection is created between you and the supplier and your personal and payment details are transmitted using the same level of encryption as online banking.
The level of financial protection you receive is determined by the payment method you choose. For more information see our FAQ above: What payment method should I use?
All currency suppliers are required to complete a comprehensive onboarding questionnaire before we list them on the Compare Holiday Money website. This questionnaire provides us with information on the supplier's background, financial history, directors and technical capabilities, as well as document any legal and regulatory requirements the supplier may have. Our compliance team verify the answers by cross-referencing them with various online registers such as Companies House, the Supervised Business Register and the Financial Conduct Authority, and we then make a decision as to whether to list them. Once a supplier has been listed we run regular audits to check the ongoing status and accuracy of the information provided, and if any issues are flagged up we immediately suspend the listing until the supplier corrects the issue or provides us with clarification. Despite these stringent checks, we cannot guarantee the solvency of any suppliers who appear on the Compare Holiday Money website and we urge all customers to conduct their own research before transacting with a company.
It depends. You may need to provide some ID, typically a copy of your passport or driver's licence, depending on how much currency you are ordering. Most suppliers won't ask for ID if you're ordering less than £1,000 but most will if you're ordering £2,500 or more. If you're ordering £10,000 or more you may need to provide additional information on the source of the funds. The exact requirements vary from supplier to supplier, but they will make it clear what form(s) of ID and other documents they require before you place an order.

The United Arab Emirates Dirham is the official currency of the United Arab Emirates; a country bordering Oman and Saudi Arabia in the Arabian Peninsula that is composed of a federation of 7 separately-governed emirates. Since discovering oil in the 1980s, the UAE's prospects have improved dramatically, transforming the country from a poor, desolate desert area into a modernised and rich state.
The UAE Dirham is pegged to the US Dollar at a rate of $1 USD = 3.7 AED, and is widely stocked by most bureau de change here in the UK which means competition is strong and good deals can be found by comparing suppliers. You should probably budget in the region of 1,000 AED per day.
For those that don't want to take large amounts of cash with them to the Emirates, consider a prepaid currency card as an alternative method of payment. They are accepted all over the UAE but unlike UK credit or debit cards they will not incur additional transaction fees when they are used.
Before you travel to United Arab Emirates you can get advice from the UK Government website
If you are a British citizen then you can obtain a 30 day visa for your stay in the United Arab Emirates upon arrival and if you would like to extend your stay in the UAE then you can pay for an extended visa whilst in the country. Just ensure you do not overstay your visa as you will be fined and your passport must be valid for at least 6 months when you arrive.
Whilst in the UAE if you intend on working then you will need to obtain a working permit which can be valid for up to 3 months and if you do not get your probationary work permit before starting work then you could face a fine, imprisonment and deportation.
Make sure when leaving the country that you cancel your work permit otherwise you could be arrested upon re-entry to the UAE at a later date. You are also advised to make sure you do not have any outstanding debts when trying to leave as legal disputes need to be settled before you can leave the country.
If need to take prescribed drugs with you to the United Arab Emirates then you will need obtain the necessary approval and paperwork from the UAE Ministry of Health as some prescribed drugs or over the counter drugs might not be allowed and you will need prior permission before travelling to the country.
Prepaid currency cards are designed specifically to be used overseas. They work the same way as a standard UK bank card, except their fees are lower when used in United Arab Emirates and the exchange rates are much better than those offered by most high street banks.
