Coming to one important matter When you decide to visit Dubai, that is how spending money in Dubai is like or how different from spending money in Thailand. The author is one of those people who know nothing about spending money in Dubai before. so this article The author therefore summarizes how to use Dubai money. To be the most useful for you. I certify that if you apply the method I presented here. You will definitely save more when in Dubai.
1. No need to exchange a lot of Dubai money from Thailand.
The first fact of using Dubai money is You don’t need to exchange money from Thailand to use it in Dubai because 95% of us can use our credit or debit card to pay. Almost everything in Dubai is possible. Even the taxi fare
And then another reason! That is, if you exchange good money! Thailand and bring it back on the way back You may have to pay the difference of almost 10% back, so if you don’t want to lose the difference. I recommend not to exchange. If you want to exchange, it’s about 1,000-2,000 DRAM is enough (1 DRAM = 8-10 baht).
2. Have money on your debit or credit card.
Prepare your Thai baht and put it on your credit card. or debit card instead Especially cards with advertisements about exchange rates + fees that are cheaper than anyone else. because when you come to Dubai all expenses Use a debit or credit card. like you buy a train ticket You can use a debit or credit card, you can pay for a taxi, you can use the card, eat food, shop at convenience stores, and you can use it all.
Dubai’s financial system is already very advanced. So it’s best to put everything on the card!
3. Before getting in the taxi, inform him that you only have the card.
Because in some areas of Dubai The internet signal might be bad. So before getting in the taxi, you inform the driver that Only cards are available. Are you ok? If they are ok (90% ok for sure) you can take a taxi.
4. Try not to collect dram coins.
To be remembered as the first priority is Try not to leave any dram coins in your wallet, as you will not be able to redeem them at Dubai Airport. Try to use all the dram coins. and remember that A small coin, just 1 DRAM, that’s 10 Thai baht! So don’t accidentally leave a lot of coins. Otherwise, it may be exchanged into real baht for 1,000 baht at all.
5. Before buying anything Always memorize the exchange rate numbers.
when i was in dubai Sometimes I go to convenience stores and buy a lot of buttermilk snacks. Before I knew it, I was hit with 80 dram. Sounds like a little. But this is almost 800 baht! So you can recite it according to my formula. 1 DRAM equals 10 Thai baht. Recite it like this. And you will definitely not buy more than the money you have.
6. Tips can be given. No, no one says me.
I live in Dubai and pay with all my cards. I never paid a tip. Unless the service is really good, I’ll give it a tip. I don’t see what anyone says, seriously, people who come as laborers or service workers Most of them are non-Dubai. More foreigners like Sri Lanka, for example, so you don’t have to think about tips at all. It’s better to keep it for regular expenses.
