Visiting the land of natural and man-made wonders that is Argentina? From the glaciers and peaks of the Andes, to the beauty of Iguazu Falls and the hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, you’ll have plenty to see and do during your trip. So, before you go, visit your nearest Travel Money Oz store or order your Pesos online.
The Argentine peso uses the dollar sign to identify it, and it is divided into 100 centavos. While you are there, you may find it difficult to use small denominations, particularly coins, and some shop owners won’t sell items if the transaction involves giving you change in coins. For this reason, we recommend taking large denominations with you. If you take more than US$10,000 (or equivalent in pesos or other foreign currency) into Argentina, you must declare it. But, there are restrictions on exporting local and foreign currency, so try to spend the pesos that you have before leaving the country.
