Car Rental in Cuba for December 2014 and January 2015 just got more complicated for many visitors to Cuba during the holidays. As of today Cuban Rent a Car companies Havanautos, CubaCAR, REX and Via Gaviota have ceased confirmations of Car Rentals in Cuba for travel agents and third parties. Therefore, from today it’s only possible to confirm a rent a car in Cuba on the official websites shown in the grey bar above – CubaCAR, REX, Via & Havanautos.
Thankfully, there is still lots of car availability in Cuba when booking directly for: Economy Manual stick shift, Economy Automatic, Full Size (Called medium in Cuba) Manual and Automatic but, again, only when you book using the official websites. Many travel agents and affiliates have already published the bad news that they can no longer confirm cars for December 2014 and January 2015. Consumers should be wary if they are being told there are vehicles available when plainly agents can no longer confirm cars in Cuba.
As of writing this report 11 cars were confirmed with CubaCAR Cuba when booked directly. This confirms the ongoing availability of cars when booked directly with the websites shown.
Happy Holidays to all and good luck with your Car Rental in Cuba!
