    Best rates to be had are locally at ATMs

    try travelex they are the best when you buy on the net in branch they can be expensive.

    I'd get it here, the currency is called the UAE Dirham (shortened to AED). Currently about 6AED to £1 for quick approx conversion.

    Travelex is good and you can get it delivered or collect at the airport.

    M&S or Co-Op Travel tend to give good rates on the high street, I nearly always use one of these three.

    As a regular visitor to Dubai I can safely say the ATM rates will not be better than Travelex / M&S.

    Remember to factor in any charges for using a local ATM too (if applicable with your cards).
