The Argentine Peso is the official currency of Argentina. It is identified by the same dollar symbol as with Australian and the USA, although the exchange rate is independent from these locations. Each peso is subdivided into 100 centavos.
The term ‘Peso’ is derived from Spanish origins, meaning ‘weight’ and the term can be traced back to the colonial times to refer to the Spanish coin, equivalent to a value of eight reales. The peso form a part of the national currencies in most South American countries including Chile, Columbia, Dominican Republic, Mexico, Uruguay as well as Cuba and Philippines.
Between June 15th, 1985 and December 31st 1991, the official currency of Argentina was the Argentine Austral. This Peso was reintroduced to increase stability in the economy at the time due to the Austral experiencing hyperinflation.

Easy online system and efficient pick up service. Also airport pick up of online order is great.Mary Perth
Excellent rate, seems very secure, transfers appear to be getting faster
Very happy with using the Travelex Money Card. Used the Travelex Cash Passport when last travelled overseas more than three years ago, and thought that worked well, but Money Card is even better. Top up with using BPay through the website gives a really good rate, and the last time I used it took less than one business day for cash input to come through, but users might find when first using this method it might take a little longer.John from Perth WA
Thank you - very happy with the service I received.Mary Vivienne Kelly
Very impressed. My first time buying cash on line. In the past, I would try to obtain the best rate by dealing directly with the shop front. By buying online, I received a better rate and it was so very easy. Overall, competent and highly efficient in every aspect of the process I will be using Travelex again.Yvonne Manera
Easy and reliable
Organised everything online to pick up cash for my holiday at the airport, on the day of departure. This left no room for error, so I was a little nervous at first. But a couple of days prior to the arranged pick up date I received an email confirming my order was ready to collect. Checked in, collected my cash and boarded the plane - couldn't have been easier.Paul B
