Argentina Currency


The Argentinean Peso (ARS) is divided into 100 centavos. Currency can be exchanged at banks and cambios (bureaux de change) but it is easier to use ATMs, available in most towns, which reflect the current exchange rate. The major credit and debit cards are generally accepted, and US Dollars can be used in many tourist establishments. There can be problems using travellers cheques in rural areas, although banks in major cities should accept them.
