Send Money from the UK to Argentina

UPDATE: Added some new promo codes and rate info! Plus, use the links below and you’ll receive a £10 Gift Certificate on your first transfer.

Azimo is a new service that allows anyone from the United Kingdom to send money to Argentina – and get the blue rate!

Money Transfer UK to ArgentinaWe’ve previously written extensively about Xoom, but that only works for those with a US bank account. Well, now is the time for Brits to get in on the money-sending action too.

Azimo allows you to send money using any UK debit card, online or telephone banking, or by going into a Barclay’s bank if you’re in the UK. You can then pick up the money in Argentina from a wide range of locations (a lot more than Xoom offers) or send it directly to a bank account. Please note that while their site states that you can pick up US dollars or pesos, that is not correct. You can only get Argentine pesos.

So, what is the rate? Currently it’s an impressive £1 = ARS $21.15 with their standard £5 transfer fee. Compare this to the official rate of £1 = ARS $13.63, and that’s an extra 55% on your money! There is currently a limit of £899.99 every 30 days, but that can be raised by providing proof of identity.

For a limited time, if you use the promotion code 2MYFIRSTTRANSFER or UPTOSPEED when sending, you’ll get the transfer fee (£5) for free as well. (You can also try the code AZIMODISCOVERBA.) And, if you click through my links, you’ll get a £10 Gift Certificate on your first transfer.

Here’s a quick overview video of their incredibly simple process:

Go give Azimo a try now and let us know in the comments how it worked out for you.

(Please note that I earn a referral fee if you use my links above. It’s a great service and I appreciate the support!)

    Thanks Dave just what I was looking for, I will go ahead with a transfer on the 15th when I get paid so I can pick up in Buenos Aires on the 17th when I arrive, I guess they will speak some English in these money places but I shall take my Argentine girlfriend to help me anyway, still learning Spanish you see lol, but hope to get there one day soon.
    Thanks and all the best

    In Cordoba they have only 2 locations for cash pickup:

    1) CBi — Dinosaurio Mall — Rodriguez del Busto 4086, Dino Mall, Local 85
    2) CBi — Rivadavia 126

    Has anyone used this service in Cordoba? What documentation do they ask for to collect the money here?
