Mastering the Art of Money in Argentina: A Traveler’s Guide

By Professor of Political Science Mike Towle, Ph.D.

Everything you think you know about how to handle money while abroad does not apply to Argentina. But that’s part of the fun and adventure! Argentina offers some unique money challenges for travelers that require planning ahead. With the right information and preparation, you can make the most of your budget in this amazing country. For a typical traveler to Europe, the usual advice is to rely on ATMs for cash and credit cards. This is not the best advice for traveling to Argentina. While ATMs are convenient, you will not get the best exchange rate. And credit cards are not widely accepted. But no worries – there are better options! Read more about exhanging currency in Argentina.
