Cuba car hire

The most pleasant way to know any country is through the independence and autonomy that a car gives you. Cars can be rented at many points in Cuba (hotels, agencies in cities and tourist destinations, airports, etc.) but it is a good idea to booking the car in advance (doing it save your time and money).

In this page we offer around 25 different models of cars in various categories (economic, medium, medium-high, luxury, minivan, van) and with pick-up and drop off in the main cities, airports and tourist destinations on the island.

Our suppliers are the main wholesale agencies of the industry in Cuba: Cubacar, Havanautos and Rex, which are Transtur brands. However, we declare that we are intermediaries between the wholesalers and the client and we can only assume before the client the responsibility that concerns us directly in the process of renting a car.

We accept credit / debit cards online, including those issued by American banks.visa mastercard american express
