Foreign Banks in Dubai

Source Dubai boasts a diversified population of individuals that come from all over the world to live in the city. It should come as no surprise that the city is home to a large number of international banks. Banks such as Citi Bank, Barclays Bank, Commerzbank, UBS, National Bank of Abu Dhabi, Blom Bank France, and Credit Suisse are among the leading competitors in the market. Indian banks in Dubai include: Andhra Bank, Axis Bank, Bank of Baroda, ICICI Bank, State Bank of India, HDFC Bank, IDBI Bank, Punjab National Bank, and Union Bank of India.

Credit Cards and ATMs

The use of SourceATMs in Dubai is a fantastic choice for withdrawing converted money. You will never have a problem locating an ATM in Dubai because it is an international financial hub. You can find one at any location, including malls, airports, metro stations, and even the middle of the street. Because there are more digital transactions than cash transactions in the city, all international and Indian banks have their ATMs in the city. Check to see whether your home bank has a branch in Dubai.

Credit cards from other countries are accepted without issue in Dubai.

  • Check to see whether your credit card is accepted internationally. If it is, check to see if the United Arab Emirates is included on the list. Notify your bank in advance of your travel dates and the fact that you will be using your credit card. Because if your bank notices a random transaction being carried out in a foreign nation, they may suspend your card’s use. Check the ATM costs that you will be paid per transaction to ensure that you are not overcharged. Your card service provider, such as Mastercard or Visa, will charge you a foreign currency conversion fee for using your card abroad. A foreign transaction fee levied by your bank, followed by a withdrawal fee levied by the bank’s ATM that you will be employing are the last charges.

This is how you can keep your ATM fees to a bare minimum:

  • By utilizing your bank’s ATM instead of another bank’s ATM
  • By withdrawing big amounts (without exceeding the limit)
  • And by withdrawing large amounts less frequently because you are charged a fee per transaction

Tipping in Dubai

Source However, while there is no legislation stating that tipping is mandatory in Dubai, if you are satisfied with a service, you may be kind and leave a little gratuity. What you choose to do is entirely dependent on your particular preferences. If you choose not to tip, no one will look at you with angry eyes or scowl at you. Even a simple thank you on your part will brighten their day. Here’s a brief primer on where to tip in Dubai, and how much to tip in certain situations.

  • Cabs: Taxis in the United Arab Emirates are far less expensive than taxis in Europe or the United States. There will never be a problem hailing a taxi in Dubai because there are so many of them in this city. In this part of the world, travelers often use AED 5 for small journeys and AED 10 for large distances. You may, on the other hand, just round off the fare and avoid asking for change. When shopping at a grocery store, it is not necessary to tip the cashier if you only purchased a water bottle. In the case of food stores, you have the option of paying the round-off number or leaving no gratuity at all. Tips for valets in hotels range from AED 5 to AED 10 in the event that you ask them to conduct an errand for you or if they help you carry your extra-heavy luggage to your room. Restaurants: If you like the cuisine, you may leave a gratuity of 10-15 percent of the total amount at the restaurant. Although it is acceptable not to do so because most restaurants include taxes and service charges in the bill, it is not recommended.

That’s all there is to it. You should now be well-versed in the UAE’s official currency, the Emirates Dirham. The people of Dubai are quite kind, and they take their responsibilities towards visitors very seriously. This means you will have no problem converting or transferring your money to the Dubai currency anyplace, or obtaining local assistance in navigating the currency exchange and transfer process.
