Travel by Car

By far, the best transport option from within Cuba is by car. Renting a private car is fairly straightforward – if there is availability. Regardless of the various rental companies you will find on the internet, all private vehicle rentals are government owned and regulated – meaning whichever company you find online, they will rent for you via a government owned company such as REX or CubaCar and availability is difficult to guarantee – which makes planning your vacation difficult.

Chauffeured Car Rental Service

While vehicle rental services do exist in Cuba, rentals must be made in person and only upon arrival and availability is not guaranteed. For this reason, we offer advance bookings on car with chauffeur services for your travel comfort and transport requirements while in Cuba. Your chauffeur is available and at your service 12 hours per day.
