    The outlook for sterling remains challenging in its precarious post-Brexit economic environment.

    The pound hit a multi-year Low in mid July of 1.18 against the greenback (1 USD = 0.8456 GBP) — on the bleak outlook for the UK economy and after the Federal Reserve started its long anticipated increase of interest rates.

    How to get a good GBP to AED Exchange Rate

    There are two important ways to save on Foreign Exchange, the first is minimising unnecessary or excessive costs and fees, and the other is to transact when the exchange rate is in your favour.

    Reduce Excessive costs and fees

    Generally speaking, if you are buying United Arab Emirates dirham with Pound Sterling, then it's good for the GBP/AED exchange rate to be higher.

    However working against you are the fees all foreign exchange providers charge for providing their service. These fees is usually contained within the exchange rate margin (or difference to the mid-rate).

    The transaction margin you end up being charged can be considerably reduced by around a few percent (of total amount being exchanged) for travel money and possibly over 5% to 6% when sending money. The exact potential savings depends on the currencies being exchanged and the amount you are transferring and if you are willing to shop around.

    Our real-time foreign transfer and travel money/cards comparison calculators make shopping around easy and help you calculate how much you can save.

    You can also read our practical guide to getting the Best Deals for your Foreign Transfers and Travel Money to UAE.

     

    Will the Pound Sterling rise against the United Arab Emirates dirham?

    It is almost impossible to predict what an exchange rate will do in the future, the best approach is to monitor the currency markets and transact when an exchange rate moves in your favour.

    To help with this you can add GBP/AED to your BestExchangeRates My Rates Watchlist to track and benefit from currency movements.
