Argentine Pesos are temporarily unavailable

Our travel money affiliates are reporting supply issues with this currency, and as a result we are unable to offer exchange rate comparisons at this time. These issues are usually only temporary so please check back again later.

You can also take a look at our Prepaid Currency Cards as an alternative to cash, or International Money Transfers if you need to send or receive a large amount of Argentine Pesos.

We'll help you to get the best Argentine Peso exchange rate

We compare the Argentine Peso rates from dozens of the UK's biggest currency suppliers including the Post Office, supermarkets, high street banks and specialist online travel money providers, so you can see in an instant who is offering the best deals after commission and delivery charges have been accounted for. Many of our travel money affiliates also offer our customers exclusive exchange rates that are even better than if you go to them direct, and on average our customers save £59 when they compare with us.

Generally speaking, specialist online travel money providers and bureau de change offer the best Argentine Peso exchange rates, followed by the supermarkets, the Post Office and then the banks. The absolute worst rates of all are found at the airports so try to avoid buying there at all costs. If you're short on time and need your currency in a hurry, check out our Click & Collect Argentine Pesos page to find a local supplier near you.

Over the past 90 days, the Argentine Peso has dropped by 0.00% from 0 on the 17th February to today. Back then, £750 would have bought you $0.00 more than it would today. During this period the Argentine Peso hit a high of 47.7021 on the 24th March and a low of today. You can see more historical exchange rate data over longer time frames on our Argentine Peso exchange rate history page.

How do I buy Argentine Pesos?

Using our comparison form at the top of the page, enter the amount of Argentine Pesos you want to buy, select your preferred payment method(s) and click 'Compare Deals'. We'll return a list of UK currency suppliers who are selling Argentine Pesos right now along with their latest exchange rates and delivery information. The results are sorted in order of who is offering the most Argentine Pesos after all fees and delivery charges have been added which means the best deals are always at the top of the table. Choose the supplier you want to order with and follow the link to their website where you can place your order with them directly.

When is the best time to buy Argentine Pesos?

It is impossible for us to predict the best time to buy Argentine Pesos. We provide some historical exchange rate data in the chart above so you can see the overall trend, but beyond that we cannot offer any advice on when to buy. Our advice is to not worry too much about trying to perfectly time the market. Unless you are buying tens or hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of currency, the daily changes in exchange rates do not make a huge difference to the amount of currency you'll receive.

Can I collect my Argentine Pesos in person?

Yes, some currency suppliers do allow you to collect Argentine Pesos from them in person. We have a dedicated Click & Collect page where you can find the nearest supplier in your area. If you plan on collecting in person, we recommend ordering or reserving your Argentine Pesos online first on the supplier's website to guarantee the exchange rate. Some suppliers offer lower exchange rates if you walk in off the street, but you can usually order online in advance and collect your currency in store at the better online rate.

How long does Delivery take?

Most currency suppliers will dispatch your order on the same or next working day after they receive your payment, and all orders are sent via Royal Mail Special Delivery which is a fully-insured and guaranteed Next Working Day service. However, just in case any unexpected delays crop up we recommend ordering no later than 3 working days before you are due to travel. If you've left it too late for home delivery, check out our Click & Collect page to find a local Argentine Peso supplier near you. We cover most UK airports, so in the worst case scenario you can reserve your currency online (at the better online rate) and pick it up from the departure lounge before you fly.

Do I have to be at home when my currency is delivered?

No. All currency is sent by Royal Mail Special Delivery which is a fully-insured and guaranteed Next Working Day service. Somebody at your address will need to sign for the package but if nobody is home when the postman attempts to deliver, they'll leave a missed delivery card and you can either collect the package from your nearest sorting office or arrange for it to be re-delivered on a more convenient day.

Can I have my Argentine Pesos sent to a different address?

Generally, no. This is ultimately at the discretion of the currency supplier, but most suppliers will only deliver to the home address of the person paying for the currency (i.e. the card or bank account holder's address). This is for security reasons because a signature is required when the currency is delivered, and signatures from work or other addresses can be unreliable and difficult to prove.

What happens if the package goes missing during delivery?

All currency is sent by Royal Mail Special Delivery which is a fully-insured and guaranteed Next Working Day service. This type of postage is more secure than standard post and is meant specifically for high-value and important items because tracking is enabled by default and a signature is required as proof of delivery. It is very rare for a Special Delivery package to go missing, but in the unlikely event that it does you will be completely reimbursed by Royal Mail for the full value of the currency and the cost of postage.

What payment method should I use?

The payment method you choose is important because it affects whether or not you pay any extra fees during checkout, and also whether you are financially protected in the unlikely event that something goes wrong with the supplier. We have written a more detailed guide about choosing a payment method on our blog: A guide to payment methods.

Are there any limits on the amount of Argentine Pesos I can order?

Most, but not all, currency suppliers have a minimum and a maximum amount you can order from them, however we automatically factor these into our comparisons so if you tell us exactly how much you want to spend we'll only return suppliers that can fulfill your request. Most suppliers also have a minimum amount that you can order from them to qualify for free home delivery; if you order less than this amount you can still get your order delivered by you'll have to pay for postage. Again, we automatically factor these charges into our comparisons so you don't need to worry about any hidden costs during checkout.

Is ordering online safe and secure?

All of the currency suppliers we compare use SSL encryption as standard on their ordering pages. This means that when you place an order, a secure connection is created between you and the supplier and your personal and payment details are transmitted using the same level of encryption as online banking.

Am I financially protected if something goes wrong with the supplier?

The level of financial protection you receive is determined by the payment method you choose. For more information see our FAQ above: What payment method should I use?

What checks does Compare Holiday Money carry out on the listed suppliers?

All currency suppliers are required to complete a comprehensive onboarding questionnaire before we list them on the Compare Holiday Money website. This questionnaire provides us with information on the supplier's background, financial history, directors and technical capabilities, as well as document any legal and regulatory requirements the supplier may have. Our compliance team verify the answers by cross-referencing them with various online registers such as Companies House, the Supervised Business Register and the Financial Conduct Authority, and we then make a decision as to whether to list them. Once a supplier has been listed we run regular audits to check the ongoing status and accuracy of the information provided, and if any issues are flagged up we immediately suspend the listing until the supplier corrects the issue or provides us with clarification. Despite these stringent checks, we cannot guarantee the solvency of any suppliers who appear on the Compare Holiday Money website and we urge all customers to conduct their own research before transacting with a company.

Do I need to provide ID or other documents?

It depends. You may need to provide some ID, typically a copy of your passport or driver's licence, depending on how much currency you are ordering. Most suppliers won't ask for ID if you're ordering less than £1,000 but most will if you're ordering £2,500 or more. If you're ordering £10,000 or more you may need to provide additional information on the source of the funds. The exact requirements vary from supplier to supplier, but they will make it clear what form(s) of ID and other documents they require before you place an order.

Can I sell back any unused Argentine Pesos?

Yes, we have a section of our website dedicated to currency buybacks: Exchange Argentine Pesos for Pounds Sterling.

Can I send money to a bank account in Argentina instead?

Yes, we can facilitate the transfer of currency into an overseas bank account; see our Money Transfers page for more information.

The Argentine Peso has had a turbulent history and has suffered from inflation and devaluations. Since the late 20th century, the Argentine peso has experienced a very high rate of devaluation, reaching as much as 25% in 2017. The exchange rate for the United States dollar hovered around 3-1 from 2002 to 2008, climbing to 6-1 between 2009 and 2013. By January 2018, the rate had risen to 20-1.

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.

Compare Holiday Money are supporters and promoters of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office's (FCO) "Know Before You Go" campaign whose aim is to help Brits stay safe when they are abroad. The FCO advise against taking Travellers Cheques to Argentina as they are not commonly accepted. There are also frequent restrictions on buying currency with Argentina. For more information visit the FCO's Argentina Travel Advice page.

You don't need a visa to enter Argentina but you do need a passport that is valid for the duration of your trip. British passport holders are usually granted 90 days for their stay in Argentina; if you want to stay longer than this or are travelling for any purpose other than tourism you'll need to contact the Argentine Embassy in London.

You should also be prepared to show evidence of return or onward travel before departing for Argentina, for example your return plane ticket home. Airlines have been known on occasion to refuse boarding to passengers travelling to Argentina without proof of return travel.

Prepaid Argentine Peso Cards

Prepaid currency cards are designed specifically to be used overseas. They work the same way as a standard UK bank card, except their fees are lower when used in Argentina and the exchange rates are much better than those offered by most high street banks.
