    Dubai Travel Money 16th Jun 17 at 12:07 AM
    I travel to Dubai in 10 days and had planned on taking a pre loaded card and a small amount of cash

    Stupidly I've left it late as I was thinking I would just get a Post Office Money card, As I did this last year with dollars and it did the job perfectly and was accepted everywhere

    Now I have just realised the Post Office do not have Dirham as a 'preloadable' currency

    What is the best card to use/have for use in Dubai

    many thanks

    You're lucky to avoid the PO card and its dreadful rates this time. You don't need to 'preload' anything, keep your money in pounds on a card until used. Monzo is ideal, use the MSE link to jump the queue:

    If you are in a hurry the Monzo is a good choice. I had mine up and running just three days after applying via the MSE link.

    Thanks, from what I've read the Monzo seems a good choice
