Which Currency or Denomination?

Hello All,

New member here today!

Will be in Argentina next month. I've read about the blue dollar market.....

Are USD the best currency when changing? Do they like EUR as well?

Do certain notes get better rates ? 50's 100's etc?

Any help appreciated!

Thank you.

Crisp, new US$100 notes without any markings

The end

Euros and even Sterling will be accepted, but not at any changer and the effective exchange rate will be marked down.... so the above advice by Eastbay1K is 100% spot on. Benjamin Franklins and the bet kind of travel companions for your trip to Argentina.

Leaping_Deere welcome to Flyertalk. Take a look at www.ambito.com and look under informal rates for an idea of current exchange rates.

Thanks and Safe Travels
