With the 2014 winter bookings in full swing, Transtur and Via Gaviota have moved to a harmonized booking Platform and generic (identical) reservation websites. Online bookings at the official websites shown below are still possible, however, travel agencies and secondary agents no longer have availability of rental cars in Cuba for December 2014 and January 2015.
Essentially the websites confirm the fact that all the brands are the same company and only differences in the type of vehicle provided differentiates the services and vehicle supplied.
Havanautos now only provides cars with automatic transmissions. Therefore, the old fleet of vehicles with manual (stick shift) transmissions has been given to CubaCAR. Therefore, if you are booking a non-luxury automatic vehicle in Cuba, it will now come from Havanautos.
