Is it good to buy jewelry from Dubai Duty Free? I know that Gold Souk would be the best place to shop for gold but I won't have the time to make it. Would there be a huge price difference?
Duty Free has a decent variety, in different carats, and from different countries. Gold Souk is a much much larger version, and vast number of outlets that provide accessories, repair services, even tools and machinery. DDF prices are fixed and non negotiable. In the souk you can bargain to reduce the making charges. If no time to go to souk, make the best of DDF. Base gold price would be same throughout Dubai but DDF could be just a shade more.
Hows the acceptance of Diners Club credit card at dubai duty free? I was hoping to just use the card and not get into the trouble of getting USD/AED for the short stopover.
The Duty Free prices are higher and the variety in designs is not as great as in the Souks.
They accept major credit cards without issue.
