Montevideo-Buenos Aires ferry prices
My article looking at the different Buenos Aires-Montevideo travel options has links to the ferry company websites.
Notes: I used a one-way rate because there is a very limited saving in general when buying a return (two-way) ticket. The saving appears to be less than 10 USD in most cases.
The prices were in Argentine pesos. I converted them into US dollars using xe.com and rounded them up or down to the nearest dollar.
Prices include taxes.
The Colonia Express site says that their journey is shorter than Buquebus’. As a long time user, I have corrected their estimation to a more accurate 5 hours.
It’s important that you visit the travel company websites for the exact prices of tickets. Guru’Guay offers this information as a guide and canaccept no responsibility for prices or changes.
