The Argentine Peso has had a turbulent history and has suffered from inflation and devaluations. Since 1992 and more specifically in 2001; the Argentine government has kept a steady exchange rate – currently $4 ARS to $1 USD. This policy has brought a lot of money and investment into Argentina over the last 20 years. The Argentine Peso is freely traded on the international markets but the Argentine government buys up currency to maintain the stable rate. The variations that UK tourists experience are down to the volatility of the US Dollar to the Pound rather than directly between the Pound and the Peso. You should probably budget about £400 to £500 per week while staying in Argentina.
The US Dollar is a free floating currency meaning that if you want to buy Argentine Pesos you should compare the exchange rate frequently using a comparison service like Compare Holiday Money.
Most bureau de change do not carry Argentine Pesos so your choice is limited to the high street banks that may offer poor exchange rates and the online specialists who offer the best Argentine Peso exchange rates.
