The money in Dubai, and the rest of the United Arab Emirates, is called the dirham. The currency is sometimes abbreviated AED and sometimes DHS. One dirham is divided into the smaller unit of 100 fils.
1 dirham is equivalent to just under 2.50 Swedish kronor (September 2018). You can always check the current exchange rate on, for example, valutor.se.
There are plenty of ATMs, visitors will find the first ATM already at the baggage belt at the airport.
All major debit and credit cards are accepted.

What about the mobile phone? Expensive or?
Using your mobile can be expensive, unfortunately. Prices vary depending on your mobile operator, but minute prices of SEK 15-20 are not uncommon. SMS costs SEK 4-5. Surfing on the mobile network is also expensive, so be sure to turn off your phone's data roaming.
Make sure you use wifi as much as possible. Hotels and shopping malls have good wifi networks, and there's actually free wifi on many beaches too - although it can be shaky at times.
