Sorry, Xoom requires a US bank account or credit/debit card. The only solution I have seen for other countries is possibly using Bitcoin. Check out this post http://thebluemarket.wordpress.com/2012/10/18/bit... though I would do some more research on that first as this is the very first post on a new blog and it's not clear how legit this is at the moment.

Sign up for their mailing list. I think you'll get early notice.

Sorry, that's what I was replying to. I think you have to find someone here who is earning in pesos and needs to get the money back to the UK and work out a deal. There is no Xoom for the UK.

A DNI is their version of a social security number. You need to be a legal resident to get one.

Finding work can be tough. You might be able to find something off the books with a start up here as well. It all depends on your skills and background. I will say it may not be all that easy...

That is pretty much impossible these days without a DNI. There are some reports of banks creating accounts with a CDI and passport, but it is almost impossible to find.

Unfortunately I have not seen anything for the UK. You might find someone working here who needs pesos back in the UK and work out a deal to transfer in the UK and pick up pesos here.

None yet. There are some YouTube videos showing how to cut a micro SIM down, but it's a bit more complicated that cutting a SIM into a micro SIM.

Did you expect this to have been well thought out? :) Hopefully it will be fixed before the final date!

Hi Sue,

Yes, Xoom is a great option. Here' some idea on pricing: Taxi from EZE airport to Buenos Aires - $200 pesos; dinner for two at a nice restaurant with drinks - $300 pesos and up; 15 minute taxi ride - $30 pesos; admission to Malba museum - $30. What you need really depends on what your plans are. Some ways to get rid of pesos at the end of the trip include using it to pay the hotel bill, taxis, etc.
