If you decide to rent a car in Cuba, you will have to take into account the price, the number of parking spaces, the type of gear lever (automatic or manual) and the size of the luggage you will take with you.
During the booking process you will be shown the services included and not included in the price so that you can choose the car that best suits you. Remember that Cubacenter guarantees the reservation of the chosen category and not of the specific model.
On our car rental home page you can select the place, dates and times for the pick-up and the drop off. Once you have entered this data, our search engine will show you the cars that match your request.
A delay of 30 minutes is tolerated during the opening hours of the rental agency. In case of longer delay the vehicle is not guaranteed as the company may decide to deliver the car to another customer. We therefore recommend that you notify us if you arrive later than the scheduled time (you will find all the contacts on the voucher that we will send you after your booking).
If the car drop off takes place 59 minute after the scheduled time, we will charge each extra hour (from 1 to 5) with 1/5 of the rate (3/6 days). For delay of more than 6 hours we will charge the extra day + 1 day of insurance.
For loss of contract will be charged 50.00 CUC for each sheet (contract consists of 2 sheets).
Once you have chosen the car you will have to proceed to the payment that can be made by credit card. We accept all major international credit cards.
The cost includes the fixed price for the number of days required with unlimited mileage.
Additional costs may concern:
- Car insurance
- Security deposit
- Additional driver
- Different car drop off loation
- Pickup and drop off at the airport
- First fuel
The insurance covers damage to the vehicle, fire, total or partial theft, accidents, natural disasters, damage to third party property and injury to third parties. You must communicate incidents immediately to the competent authorities.
The insurance does not cover theft of the car radio, 5 car wheels (4 + spare wheel) or windscreen wipers. For this reason it is recommended to always park your car in a safe place.
Once the payment has been made online, you will receive an email in which we will inform you that your booking has been registered. Within 48 hours we will confirm or not the availability of your car.
In case of confirmed car we will send you a second email with the final reservation and the voucher with all the data of the rental.
In case of unconfirmed car you may receive two different types of mail:
- email with a second car proposal that you can decide to accept. If not, you will receive a refund of your payment.
- email in which we will inform you of the unavailability of your car request. You will be fully refunded to your credit card.
In order to rent your car in Cuba you will need to show the following documents:
