Hi Guys,
Does anyone know of a way to send money from south africa to argentina? my mate and i need to get back to SA for a family emergency but as its quite a bit earlier than we planned, we're having to borrow the money from my mates folks. Unfortunately the price from SA is $1400 each, where as they are $1000 here - so we're trying to find a way to save the $800. Any suggestions / ideas would be much appreciated!

Thanks,
Chris

Did they steal your creditcards???
use Western Union for money transfers then.
Not cheap but then what can you do eh.

I'm not too sure, if I can help u at all, as we had an overseas account. If you have friends there, ask them, if ur family could transfer it into their account for the moment.
the easiest way for us, was to transfer it as a gift to me, as he had to transfer all his money from ZA and otherwise it would have been really complicated.

Western Union or MoneyGram,
Fast and safe.
You can't change your ticket?
would end up cheaper,then a new one.
