Cuba Car Rental Discounts

Cuba Car Rental Offers

Due to the drastic reduction in fleet purchases for 2014, Cuba Car Rental companies Havanautos, REX, CubaCAR and Via have recently introduced discounts for advance bookings.

Responding to recent reports on Tripadvisor and Lonely Planet’s Thorn Tree of travelers being unable to acquire a rent a car upon arrival in Cuba, all four car rental firms have introduced up to 15% discount when booking on officially approved websites (see links above). The idea is that with sufficient advance bookings the firms can tailor fleet purchasing, which takes place in May, to suit high season months of June, July and August.

The discounts on Cuba Car Rental will only be applicable for prepaid bookings made online between April 15th and June 15th 2014.

Renting a car in Cuba will also be subject to the new Quick Delivery® program introduced in December 2013 by all major car rental firms. The Quick Delivery® tries to resolve numerous complaints about pre-booked cars taking too long to deliver. From now on, those who book cars will be able to opt to provide their driving license and other details in advance and collect their car from the Quick Delivery® line at all rental offices. Reports from the first clients who used this program appear to be good, July Pennington from Massachusetts, USA said “this new system got us our car in less than 10 minutes, it really works”. Basically, the system works by pre-completing rental contract formalities and assigning exact vehicles before client arrival. Much like similar programs operated by Avis and Hertz, the car keys and the contract are then held in an envelope behind the Cuba Car Rental desk and then need only to be signed by the renter to obtain the car keys and be on their way.
