Cuba Car Hire


Driving in Cuba?

There is no doubt that hiring  transport in Cuba is vital if you like to tour around the island. Now there are a few things that you should know before renting a car in Cuba.

Right Hand Drive cars

All cars for hire in Cuba are right-hand drive. So you’ll need to be extra careful driving on this side of the road.

How easy is to find Petrol in Cuba?

The answer is: really easy. When booking a car hire with us, we will provide you more information about this. Buying a ” Guia de Carreteras” = A to Z map of Cuba, will show you all petrol stations in the motorway or towns. Most Cuba car rental offices will inform you about them.

A Quick Note: Petrol in Cuba means Gasoline, not Diesel as many of us in the UK might think.

Should I drive while in Havana?

We would not recommend renting a Car while in Havana. Transport links in Havana are very good, a taxi can take you to pretty much any place, so why should you pay for a car if there’s an easier option ?

Can you rent a Classic Car to drive yourself?

The answer is no. You can rent a Classic Car to take you around, but not to drive yourself. Most Cuba Car Rental companies will have modern vehicles, which will match international safety regulations.

So what car should I get?

If you have decide to rent a car in Cuba allow us to simplify your options. 

Depending on how many you are, you’ll obviously need to choose the right sized car, but who should you rent from?

Car Hire in Cuba it is varied, and we can recommend having a car with REX. We’ve worked with many different car leasing companies in Cuba over the years & Rex has been the most reliable, not only in car quality but also on customer service. Other car hire alternatives might be cheaper, but they are not as good as renting a car with Rex. 

All cars from Rex are of a good to high standard ie A/C, Power Steering, Electric Windows, USB Radio, ABS, all come as standard. 

Bear in mind:

Similar to other countries, renting a car in Cuba most of the time does not include Insurance, Guaranteed Deposit (which are refundable), extra drivers, pick up & drop offs at the airport. So please ensure you double check this information in advance.
