3 hour layover - Dubai

I have a 3 hour layover in Dubai.

If I want to have a drink and something to eat, can I pay in GBP or do I need Dirhams. If Dirhams how much would I need to change

You can pay in Sterling but you are very likely to get change (if any) in UAE Dirhams. Major Credit Cards are accepted too. Worst case, you can use the Exchange house in the area.

Thanks - roughly how much would a beer and a sandwich cost. I think I have about 50 Dirhams left from my last airport stopover - would that be enough ?

Beer is around 35-40 dirhams and sandwich around 15-25 dirhams.

Hi Steve - I often pay in sterling and often get my change in sterling.

If they have sterling they will most definitely give you change in sterling.

No need to change anything into dirhams.

You think beer is expensie Steve? Try a glass of vino! :)

Hong Kong?
