Book early to secure your car
Unlike many other travel destinations, there are a limited number of hire cars available in Cuba, especially throughout May to August and December. So we’ve partnered with two hire companies, REX and Viacar – who both offer car hire all year round. Although we still recommend booking your trip and car hire as early as possible to avoid disappointment!
