Airline Tickets For Pesos
I just wanted to let everyone know that I recently bought 20 airline tickets on Aerolineas Argentinas for some in-country flights that my family and I will be doing in November of this year. We're going to be flying all over the country. I'm the only one in my family with a DNI, but they let me buy all the tickets at the peso rate rather than the peso rate for me and the dollar rate for everyone else.
If you've been following this blog before, you'll know I commented on the fact that Aerolineas Argentinas makes foreigners pay the tariffs in dollars, while locals with a DNI number can pay the rate in pesos (an impressive 65% savings). Well, assuming they don't re-price the tickets at the airport and pull any shenanigans, we'll have purchased 20 in-country flights for about $140 USD each instead of $400 USD each -- a savings of over $5000 USD on airfare! If you've been waiting for a reason to get your DNI, this is just one more reason to go for it.
I'll be booking the hotels next with my DNI and I'll let everyone know what the savings are there.
