    Changing $US bill to larger denominations 10th Nov 18 at 5:07 PM
    I've got an order in for a couple of thousand dollars to take to Argentina which I'll be collecting tomorrow from an Asda bureau de change.

    Considering they apparently provide a mix of notes for online orders does anyone know if they (in store) or any other bureau will happily swap out smaller bills for $100 bills?

    Cash machine fees in Argentina run at about 10%.

    You can get pesos in the UK and the best rates are for the $. You can't exchange GBP due to their attitude towards us Brits.

    In the end, Asda didn't have enough $100 bills to fulfil my order so I ended up with about $500 in 20s and 50s. The Argentine banks weren't interested in exchanging those either.
