Many online currency converters will show a $1 CUC to $1 USD exchange rate. This is not exactly true and the details involve the 10% Cuban Government Assessment and the 3% Administrative fee. In otherwords, your $1 is worth the equivalent to $.87 when exchanging into CUCs. Another option is to exchange your dollars into Canadian Dollars (CAD) given the generous exchange rate, however when you arrive in Cuba a $1 CAD is worth $.72 when exchanging your money. There is a slight benefit to using the CAD as long as the dollar is strong in Canada.
There is a new deal in town for exchanges on most major US air carriers. If you are traveling within the US and would like to change your return flight, it is will be a minimum charge of $200 per airline ticket. International flights will start at $300 per change. If you are changing the originating flight to a different time, day and your ticket is non refundable, plan to spend more. Any exchange also requires that the same class of service to be available when changing the ticket.
