The best Argentine peso rates are offered online by companies that specialise in travel money and foreign exchange. Online travel money specialists have lower overheads than most high street shops and traditional bureau de change which means they have greater flexibility in their pricing and can usually offer the best rates on the market.
If you absolutely must buy your Argentine pesos in person it's still worth seeing if you can order online first on the supplier's website because you'll often get a better rate buy pre-ordering in advance before you collect your order.
On the high street, supermarkets tend to offer better Argentine peso rates than travel agents and the worst rates are offered by banks and airports. If you've left it too late for home delivery (ideally three working days before you travel) or if you would prefer to buy your currency in person, use our Argentine peso store finder to find the best Argentine peso rates near you.

The best time to buy Argentine pesos is when the pound is performing strongly relative to the Argentine peso. That's the technically-correct answer, but it's not very helpful. What people really want to know is: how can I time the market just right to maximise the amount of Argentine pesos I get before I travel?
You can get a good idea of how competitive today's Argentine peso rate is relative to the past using our historical pound to Argentine peso charts, but beyond that it's impossible to say exactly when is the best time to buy.
If you have the luxury of time you can spread your Argentine peso purchases out over multiple weeks or months, but the short answer is nobody knows when the best Argentine peso rate is going to crop up; this isn't something you can control so you shouldn't worry about it - just buy your Argentine pesos whenever is convenient for you and get back to thinking about your holiday!
There is no evidence to suggest that you are better off buying your Argentine pesos in Argentina. Exchange rates are usually very similar to those on offer here in the UK, but if you wait until you're in Argentina you run the risk of being stuck with a poor exchange rate and little or no local competition to buy elsewhere. Also, you may have to pay additional fees or commission when buying Argentine pesos in Argentina, whereas when you buy in the UK you know exactly how much you are getting up front with no hidden surprises when you come to buy.
If you want to send money to a bank account in Argentina (or anywhere else in the world), you should use a money transfer service to send the funds for you. This is particularly useful for large or regular payments where the exchange rate is important, but you can use a money transfer service to send or receive funds between any overseas bank accounts (for example to pay for goods in Argentina, or receive Argentine pesos into your UK bank account).
Thousands of customers order travel money on our website every week and the vast majority experience no issues whatsoever. However, as with any online order the process is not entirely risk-free and you should exercise caution when sending money to any company, particularly if you pay by bank transfer.
We undertake strict and comprehensive checks on the companies that we feature, and we monitor them all on a regular basis to ensure they continue to meet our high standards. Having said that, no company is too big to fail and we cannot guarantee the solvency of any of the suppliers who appear on our website. For this reason, we recommend that you conduct your own due diligence before placing an order with any company.
In the unlikely event that something does go wrong after you've placed an order, your payment method will determine how you are financially protected. For more information see: .
Pesos are derived from Spanish dollars or 'pieces of eight' which were brought to Argentina by the Spanish in the 16th century. The name peso means 'weight' in Spanish and refers to the fact that one peso was worth one-eighth of a Spanish real - another denomination of old Spanish currency.
