Renting a car in Cuba is very simple. Rental options are similar to those of any other country. There are agencies that are dedicated to providing these services and are very efficient. You can rent a car to travel freely throughout the country, travel in taxis or state drivers.
One of the best ways to know the whole country is renting a car and travel throughout the island with full autonomy. Cuba has an extensive road network which links all the cities and even the most intricate points of its geography. All those who visit us should be aware that the signaling used is not the same as in United States, Canada or Europe, so be extra precautionary measures. They should also pay attention to certain sections of roads in poor condition, loose pets on the roads in cities and the movement of cyclists.
To rent a car several requirements are needed. You must present a passport and drivers license with an age of not less than one year (may be international or country of origin) and must have a minimum age of 21 years.
Cars can be rented at airports, in major cities throughout the island, and in all tourist destinations and most hotels in the country. It is possible to rent a car in one location and return it in another (drop off). I recommend booking in advance, especially if it is a specific car or having an automatic transmission.
The traffic fines are paid in Cuban Convertible Pesos (CUC) and range from 5 to 50 CUC depending on the hazard. Insurance against accidents in other countries are not valid in Cuba.
Rental prices vary depending on the model and the number of days ranging from 70 cuc per day cheaper models.
