ARGENTINA TOURIST SIM CARD AND PREPAID SIM CARD I

ARGENTINA PREPAID SIM CARD BACKGROUND

First thing we have to say about Argentina prepaid sim card, internet and data connection is great especially in the cities. There are a few places off the beaten path like mountains, beaches and dessert where the connection will be weak.

Obviously the best thing you can do to connect online is getting a prepaid sim card in Argentina. It will be efficient and it will allow you to connect anytime. We recommend you to get outside the airport when getting to the city in an official phone shop.

There are 3 phone operators in the country: Claro, Movistar and Personal. You can buy your Argentina tourist sim card when you arrive in Ezeiza international airport, or at the small gift shop inside the airports. I would recommend buying outside because prices tend to be higher at the airport compared to the stores in town.

You can find the cheapest Argentinian eSim with Airalo Argentina eSim prepaid for $6.50 USD with 1 GB data valid for 7 days (USING DISCOUNT CODE GAMINTRAVELER 10%). For $13 USD with 3 GB data valid for 30 days.

Make sure you check Holafly eSim for $44 USD if you use our code GAMINTRAVELER coming with 6 GB data valid for 15 days and you can activate with QR Code.

ATMS AND CASH IN ARGENTINA

The official currency of Argentina is called Argentinian Peso (ARS). And $1 USD=140 ARS. ATMs are available all throughout the country but my advice to you is to us those are inside the banks. And it is also advisable to withdraw as much as you can because fees for transactions tend to be higher for foreign cars.
