the search for trips to Argentina by Brazilians has risen sharply in recent months. The reason is the devaluation of the Argentine peso, caused by rapid inflation in a neighboring country, which is why those who earn in real life live there for real days.

Preferred destinations are Buenos Aires, Bariloche, Mendoza, Ushuaia and Córdoba, according to Daniela Araujo, director of flights for Decolar. In July, the capital Buenos Aires was the second most popular destination for passengers on Viajala’s flight search engine, behind only Lisbon.
The company reports that the cost of round-trip flights between the capital Sao Paulo and Buenos Aires has fallen by about 8%. The companies operate 162 flights weekly between Brazil and Argentina, but this number is expected to reach 214 segments by December.

It is worth remembering that packages are subject to change in terms of availability and price, as prices are dynamic and fluctuate.
When looking for a good ticket, avoid the high season and buy in advance. In the case of Argentina, it is not worth researching prices so far in advance precisely because of the crisis.
“An early study of prices for Argentina during a crisis only works if there is an intention to make a purchase in the near future. Making a price review today (hotel, restaurant and tour) and leaving it for booking and payment in 3 or 4 months can be scary,” explains Romain Maciejowski, commercial director of Viajala.
“The same goes for buying Argentine pesos: you can buy pesos now and travel a year from now, but the truth is that these pesos can lose their purchasing power and be worth a lot less than when they were bought,” he adds.
If you can’t spend a whole week, adjust your plans and spend three or four days. And do not forget: high prices for services also affect those who simply “walk” around the country.
