Azimo has launched a new money transfer service to Argentina with an exchange rate over 40 per cent better than MoneyGram or Western Union. The service is available for cash pick-ups in Argentine pesos from a network of 25 convenient locations across the country.

With the Argentinian travel season kicking off and families starting to plan Christmas holidays home, customers using Azimo can get an exchange rate [as of 15/09/2014] of £1 = 20.769 ARS. With credit card and ATM services often hard to come by in Argentina, sending money with Azimo is an easier and more cost effective solution for customers.

Using Azimo to send £500 will save customers around 3,500.00 ARS – roughly the same as seven nights in a three star hotel in Buenos Aires or a new Samsung smartphone.

The Azimo service provides a fast, safe, easy and low-cost way to transfer money across borders, offering rates up to 85 per cent cheaper than high street banks and traditional money transfer providers.

In addition to Azimo’s normal low-cost services, customers also get their first transfer free when using promotional code AZIMOARG. There’s never been a better time to send money to friends or family, travelling or living in Argentina.
