We were just there last weekend. Although they prefer AED, they will accept both US dollars and Euros, for both fares and tips. There are plenty of ATMs, so it's easy to get AED.

Would a taxi driver in the US accept AED? No. So don't expect a driver to accept foreign currency. If they do agree to the conversion rate won't be favorable to you. Just get some AED at a ATM.

What he said.
And don't expect your driver to speak too much English, apart from understanding directions or names of hotels and landmarks.

You really can use USA currency.

With that said, you will end up paying more so if you can get local currency all the better but if you can't USA and Euros will be taken.
