How to Book
(at the most convenient exchange rate)
What is the exchange rate that Visa and Mastercard are applying nowadays?
Since December 2022, Visa and MasterCard are officially allowed by the government to apply a more convenient exchange rate ("dólar MEP") instead of the "dólar oficial" rate (the one shown by the online currency converters) for purchases made in pesos in Argentina with credit cards issued by banks from all over the world.
The "MEP" acronym translates into "Electronic Means of Payment" and its value is linked to the Buenos Aires Stock Exchange Market trading transactions, unlike the "official" exchange rate, determined by Argentina's Central Bank.
Our prices -and our charges to any credit card- are in pesos, so neither you nor us have to do anything in particular to get this "dólar MEP" exchange rate; it applies by law to all charges made in pesos by companies based in Argentina and paid with Visa and MasterCard credit cards issued by foreign banks.
Booking in advance with us is in your best interest: While you save time, and you book safely at the best price, not only you can ensure your seats in our tours, but you can also avoid scams and the inconvenience of carrying bulky bundles of cash that tend to get quite cumbersome when converted to pesos!
