Currency exchange in airport?

We will be arriving in Dubai at 7:00am and I'm wondering about money. Do they exchange currency at the airport because we will only have US dollars. Do the taxis take credit cards?

There are a number of currency exchanges at the airport and will convert US$

Not sure about taxis accepting Credit Cards - suggest you exchange dollars to dirhams at airport first.

Taxis don't take credit cards to the best of my knowledge. You need to swap some money into dirhams for this at the airport. The exchange is open 24/7.

Only cash in taxis. Exchange is available 24/7 in airport. The rate though is better for you in malls so just exchange small amount enough for taxi and immediate expenses and the rest do it from inside any mall exchange center.
