You can also exchange it at the airport. To do so you must have a receipt for when you first exchanged whatever currency you had for ARS. This is so that you can prove how you got ARS in the first place.

Use azimo.com, this has been a life saver for me. Allows you to send peso to a local bank for pick up. Its safe and cheap, and most importantly its at the blue exchange rate!

One of the simplest is to find your nearest hostel in town, and go find the backpackers. Someone is bound to have just arrived and wanting the local currency (ARS), and may have USD or EUR to give you in exchange.

Find the nearest friendly little tree and sell your pesos on the blue market: What is the best way to get ARS using USD?

The simple answer is "almost anywhere". Post office, banks, currency exchange holes-in-the-wall, etc. It's the next step up from asking 'where can I buy a coffee in Austria' !

Unless you're changing a huge amount and/or your time is worthless, just pop to the nearest non-touristy high street and compare the rates at the banks, the Post Office, travel agents, and maybe Sainsburys or Marks and Spencers (or a selection thereof). If its a very small amount just find the nearest reputable branch of one of these and be done with it. If ...

There is one Pound Sterling, which is represented by Bank of England, Scottish and Northern Irish notes and by Royal Mint coins (there aren't separate coins in England, Scotland and Northern Ireland). Gibraltar, the Falkland Islands and Saint Helena (overseas territories) and Jersey, Guernsey and the Isle of Man (crown dependencies) each have their own ...

The first sentence of the gibraltarinfo.gi page you quote is oversimplified to the point of being incorrect. The currency of Gibraltar is the Gibraltar Pound, which is a separate currency but fixed at a 1:1 exchange rate with Sterling. People and businesses in Gibraltar choose to use both Gibraltar Pounds and Sterling for their own convenience. However, as ...

Technically the only note that is valid legal tender in England and Wales are England and Welsh bank notes: Are Scottish & Northern Ireland banknotes "legal tender"? In short ‘No’ these banknotes are not "legal tender"; furthermore, Bank of England banknotes are only legal tender in England and Wales. Legal tender has, however, a very narrow ...

Got it. Yes, there are, and there's even a handy website: Link's ATM locator which, when you click one on the map, will tell you if it supports 5 quid notes or not. Checking the one I remember, it shows that indeed, the BT phone/ATM kiosk opposite Waterloo station entrance (address: Waterloo road, London, SE1 7LY) still dispenses 5 quid notes. :D I'm ...

In my experience it is less expensive and much less hassle to change your Swiss Francs to USD while still in Switzerland. I would, however, not go to a bank to change money, but rather to a train station. All major SBB train stations allow you to change money, and their rates are very good. More importantly, though, they have much better opening hours than ...

It would be more convenient for you to change your Swiss Francs to US Dollars while still in Switzerland, and you would probably get a better deal too. If you walk down the street in the center of any Swiss town, you'll encounter a bank every block or two. They will all likely post their exchange rates quite visibly, and will happily deal in cash. (The ...

The rule of thumb is that you get a better exchange rate selling a currency than buying it, so in theory will get a better exchange back in the USA. BUT US banks are notorious for poor exchange rates as there is not a huge demand. Best course of action is to watch the appropriate exchange rates and see where the better rate is. You would be looking at ...
