Rex Car Rental Cuba set to raise rates

REX Car Rental Cuba

Sources in Cuba say that Rex Car Rental Cuba will raise rates imminently by as much as 19% for 2012. Sources close to the company state that Rex Car Rental Cuba will raise rates because of “increases in fuel costs which are subsidized by the Cuban Government”


Of course we are unsure what that means as fuel is already at extortionate rates at Cuban pumps, in some places 1.40 CUC ($1.40) a liter. This being yikes!!! $5.60 gallon!!



“19% increase at Rex Car Rental Cuba?”



Based on the fact that Cuba gets 100000 FREE!! barrels from Venezuela per day  then it sounds more like yet another squeeze on visiting tourists and Cuban Americans who typically rent cars from Rex Car Rental Cuba and, as we all know, are visiting the island in record numbers.


Rates remain still unchanged on the website of Rex Car Rental Cuba but, if sources are correct, could rise soon. We recommend booking now if you intend to rent a car at some point this year in Cuba as you´ll almost certainly get a better rate. Our sources are rarely wrong (-:


Fingers crossed that Havanautos or CubaCAR don´t follow suit…


Hope this helps and if anyone has an update on this situation feel free to post here
