Large cities have car rental offices both at the airport and in the city centre. You do not need to pick up your car at the airport if you are in the city. In the case of Havana, where car rentals are always very crowded, we recommend that you pick up your car only when you plan to move to the province. In the city you can move by taxi, public transport or with the famous vintage cars of the '50s.
The roads in Cuba are in good condition, but we recommend you to be careful as you may run into dismal sections and poorly lit at night. Please remember to drive before sunset as the lighting in Cuba is very poor. The road signs are not well organized and we recommend to drive with average speed paying attention to the possible crossing of animals, bicycles and old cars.
Due to the lack of internet connection on the island you will not have access to online maps during the journey. We recommend that you download the offline maps from the Maps Me website to your mobile phone before leaving for Cuba.
In Cuba, both international and national driving licences are accepted as long as they are in original form (no photocopies are accepted).
The insurance is compulsory. You must stipulated it even if you have a credit card with all the insurances included.
You can request a child seat by paying an additional fee at your arrival. Please note, however, that car rental companies do not guarantee the service, so we suggest to bring one from home.
