In the UAE, you simply pay your bank’s currency conversion fees; certain businesses charge an additional 1–2% fee when using a credit card to purchase jewellery or gadgets. Simply confirm your functional limitations with the bank that issued your card before you depart; they may have changed regulations on this. This may also damage you if your credit card balance is relatively high.
