US Dollar and United Arab Emirates Dirham Forecasts

When determining the best time to make a foreign exchange transaction, in this case the USD vs AED, you should pay attention to the recent market trends for both currencies.

US Dollar (USD)

In early May the continuing coronavirus pandemic and an associated possible re-escalation in the US-China trade tensions has moved the market into safer currencies such as the USD and JPY.

Goldman Sachs and RBC Capital forecast a large drop for US dollar against Japanese Yen to continue with a USD/JPY rate of 95 in the near future.

The US dollar held its value in 2019 despite the US-China trade tensions, mainly because the greenback is still considered a safer currency to own than most others.

Read more in the article USD Forecasts.

 

United Arab Emirates Dirham (AED)

All the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, excluding Kuwait, have their currencies pegged to the US dollar. The UAE dirham has been fixed at a rate of around 3.6725 to $1 since 1997.


How to get Best USD to AED Exchange Rates

All foreign exchange providers charge a fee for providing their service and this fee 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.

 

What is a good USD to AED exchange rate?

This is a difficult question and the answer really depends on many factors. The best way to consider an exchange rate's relative value is to look at the rate's history.
