Rent a Car in Cuba is unlike most countries you will have experienced unless you have been to Africa or an undeveloped nation.
Booking a Rent a Car in Cuba advance is almost obligatory. Walk up rates for cars can be 15-25% more than the published rates and, in Cuba, there is nobody to complain to. You´ll encounter the “take it or leave it” attitude when you are offered a vehicle at extortionate rates.
Simple rule: Your Rent a Car in Cuba needs to be planned in advance
The key is booking a rent a car in cuba before you arrive with national providers and not with third party websites who are simply agents of the “real guys”
Americans visiting Cuba should rent a car in cuba from USA and NOT upon arrival as the Exchange rates for U.S dollars are not favorable and, the fact is, a rental car could be the single most expensive vacation addition after flights and hotel so it should be paid BEFORE arrival to save on Exchange losses.
