But, consider that the bank will make a charge for providing the service, so ensure, that you know in advance what the charge will be. Changing foreign currency is easy, you could do it at the Money Changers but they will give you a very bad exchange rate or will give you fakes bills, if you want to exchange cash, do that in the Banco de la Nacion, which is open all day and you will get a fair exchange rate, also many businesses and hotels, accept Dollars and Euros and many times give you a better foreign currency exchange rates.

TRAVELLER'S CHEQUES AND CREDIT CARDS

Most of the credit cards are accepted in Argentina; Visa, Diners Club, American Express and Mastercard are the most commonly used in Buenos Aires and the other major cities, but may be less acceptable outside of these places, so, you would have another form of have money if you travel outside of these areas.

In Buenos Aires, only major stores accept change travellers checks, small businesses possibly do not accept them, outside Buenos Aires changing travelers checks is very difficult too, so the fastest way to change them is go to banks or houses of change
