Re: Travellers Cheques for Cuba?

I understand that it's not advisable to use travellers cheques associated with America, do any exist please?

Thanks

they hate america thats why and will charge you a fortune to change them thats if they will at all. i have been to cuba 3 times and just take cash and change it at the hotel.

Don't know but probably not advisable to bring US dollars

[SIZE="4"][COLOR="Blue"]Thanks for your reply's, however I really want to know which travellers cheques I can take please? Thomas Cook deal in American Express....so Flodd thanks for tip, but I don't want my Mother from Oz stranded. [/COLOR][/SIZE] ;-)

Thomas Cook issue their own travellers cheques... I've used them before now travelling to cuba (legally) but you should make sure they're in uk sterling or euros.

I'm pretty sure barclaycard used to be okay too...

Oh to be stranded in cuba! As Dr Smith would say, "the pain... the pain..."

Went into TC yesterday and they've now changed to Amex. Don't know when you last travelled

its been a couple of years since i last went to cuba... how about hbos?

its a tricky one ill conceed, taking cash is risky, crime is pretty rare in cuba but pickpockets are on the increase.
