Help and assistance is available in Cuba, if you know about it. It amazes me how many people don’t know about Asistur. If you run out of cash while you are staying in Cuba or you have found that your cards don’t work, Asistur will take care of your financial emergency. They will provide money in exchange for cash deposited from a relative or friend abroad. They charge around 10% for these requested amounts plus 17.00 CUC to cover banking costs. The steps in arranging this are too complex to explain here as different countries have different rules.

Phone them on (53 7) 861 8920, visit their offices or send an to  e-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. http://ow.ly/ROWc9
