    Warning! Azimo - use with caution

    Yes, you can. I done just last month when I visited BsAs from London. Their agents in Argentina are More Argentina. I opted to pick up the money from their head office on Libertad 1057 - no queue and no hassle. If you use this discount code PEDROC102 on a first wire, you and I get £20 each off...

    Warning! Azimo - use with caution

    I’ve stopped using Azimo, but only because their £ to peso exchange rates have gone from being constantly above the official rate, to now 2 pesos per £ below. I now use WorldRemit where at the moment I’m getting 30.50 pesos to the £.

    My son (born in BsAs) has both British and Argentine passports, so no problem. And as it has been suggested above, get all their Argentine documentation first. Also, whenever you decide to fly out of Argentina with your twins, make sure that you also have their birth certificates with you...

    Where to change Pounds Sterling for Pesos.

    Hey Bob - I do use Azimo, and it’s great. Also use WorldRemit, who have a slightly better rate at the moment. The only thing is that there’s a monthly limit, and as we’re planning a family trip to Iguazú, I need more than these companies allow, hence me bringing cash.

    Where to change Pounds Sterling for Pesos.

    Thank you for your thorough advice. I’ve looked at doing the double conversion and it looks like I’d be better off going the direct £ to pesos route, but that is if the rates shown are genuine. For example I’ve looked at the website of an exchange house in the microcentro and it has a very...

    Where to change Pounds Sterling for Pesos.

    On Monday, I’m travelling to BsAs for a 3 week holiday and I’ve read in certain places that it’s hard to exchange Pounds for pesos. Has anyone recently done this in Capital and could you recommend the best places to get a good rate.

    Sea freight question

    We are moving back to the UK at the end of January, and are looking for recommendations on international moving companies. Also just as importantly, if there are companies that we should steer well away from, we would be most obliged. We've had one quote for 7900 US for 33 sq metres, which we...

    Pitch rental cost around 90 to 100 pesos for the hour. At least on a hired pitch as opposed to a park, you wont be treading in dog turd or doing damage to your ankles on uneven surfaces.

    Argentine women

    Hey Markus, I'm afraid that if you are from the Czech Republic, then the women from any other country will not be up to your country's standard. Having visited Prague on three occasion, I have to admit hands down that your country has on average the most beautiful women. As far as their...

    Hi everyone!! we are new in this forum

    Sorry, but I think you are just probably a tourist agency trying to promote Mendoza. You are definitely not American retirees, unless you were not taught spelling and grammar at school.
