We will be visiting Buenos Aires very soon from Washington, DC. We are in the process of booking an additional excursion to Ushuaia with Argentina Escapes. So far so good, but they are are making us nervous by requesting a wire transfer to pay for tour services vs. accepting payment by credit card.

We would love to hear if anyone has experience with Argentina Escapes or the practice of requiring wire transfers from tour companies in general.

Thank you!!!

DO NOT wire transfer money to ANYONE in Argentina. It´s almost a guarantee that you will lose it. You have no recourse. Only work with companies that will accept credit card companies, all reputable agencies do.

Argentina is not like the US where you can complain to a consumer protection agency and expect some results. Here there is "defensa del consumidor" which does nothing for people, just a bloated government agency full of useless employees that collect high salaries and do nothing for the citizens.
