Just returned from a week working in Argentina. On the way out I exchanged £100 for Argentine Pesos at the American Express currency exchange at Term 5 Heathrow. On my return from Buenos Aires I found that the American Express Exchange had been closed at Term 5 and I had £60 to change back into sterling. Phone Am Ex, not interested, went to my bank [Barclays] not interested tried several High St currency exchanges, same. Went onto Internet with question " how do I exchange Argentine Pesos?" Apparently no bank in Europe will! Its a volatile currency!
If anyone is going to Argentina this year and wants a highly favourable exchange for about 600 pesos contact me!Dave

I had the same problem with Bolivianos, thankfully only £8 worth.

This is about £70 at AM EX exchange rates, about 8.5 to the £. apparently I could have exchanged £1 for 14 Pesos on the black market in Argentina,
You live and learn, PS Don't cry for me
