What can I do after arriving at the Airport Havana?

You can visit one of the numerous national parks between two days on the beach or admire the UNESCO World Heritage Site's historic city centre in the town of Cienfuegos, about 240 km from Havana. But also Havana itself has a lot to offer, so that you can start a round trip with your rental car. If the car of a local car rental company has already been provided to you at the pick-up station at Havana airport, you can go to your accommodation after the long flight, regardless of the taxis and public transport in Cuba, which are mostly overcrowded buses. One of the most impressive things to do by night is visiting the Fábrica de Arte Cubano, which is an impressive art gallery and night club with live music. The opening hours are from Thursday till Sunday, starting by 8:00 PM.

Pick-up your rental car directly at Havana Airport

Where do I pick-up my rental car at Havana Airport? There are various car hire companies with their pick-up points in the various terminals, most of which are located in Terminal 2 and Terminal 3. So you don't have to search for a long time on arrival and you will quickly receive the rental car.

The best fuel regulation for your rental car at Havana Airport (HAV)

Gas station in Cuba

Always opt for the best fuel regulation (full/full)

We always recommend to opt for the best fuel regulation (full/full). Within this, you pick-up your rental car fully fueled and return it the same way. In Cuba and Havana, there are still fuel shortages and it is quite possible that the nearest petrol station to the airport may not be able to offer the desired petrol at the time you pick up your rental car. In general, you should also never empty the tank when traveling through Havana and Cuba, as there are gasoline shortages all over the country.

Transport connections to and from Havana Airport

The traffic connections from the International Airport Havana José Martí HAV, where many flights land and depart, are good. From the airport building via Avenida Rancho Boyeros or Avenida Van Troy you can directly reach downtown Havana. The roads are all well signposted, so you will quickly find your way with your car rental car. There is no train connection from Havana airport to the city. Only the taxis, public buses or shuttle buses of the hotels run here. So you are well served with a rental car from the price comparison Driveboo. After paying the deposit, you will quickly receive your car from the car rental company at the airport and you will be able to reach your booked accommodation without being dependent on public transport.

Which traffic regulations you should pay attention to in Cuba?

The driver must be at least 19 years old in Cuba and in possession of a Class B driving licence for one year in order to be able to rent a car. It is helpful if you want to rent a car here, that you have an international driving licence issued, even if the national driving licence would be valid. The right-hand traffic and the international traffic rules apply here as well, which are interpreted by the locals, but unfortunately sometimes a little differently. That's why you should always drive with foresight.

This should be noted:

The  maximum speed in these places is 40 km/h, which corresponds to about 25 miles per hour. Outside the towns, you're allowed to go 100 km/h, that's 60 miles an hour.

However, the side roads are often not so well developed and you have to adapt to the bad road conditions and drive slower with your rental car from the price comparison, which you could rent cheaply in the Internet. But the main roads that you use to drive your rental car between the cities are all up-to-date. Driving under the influence of alcohol is not allowed at all and the police carry out regular checks, which also like to stop the rented cars. It is especially important at night when you are on the road in Cuba with your rental car that you pay attention to pedestrians. Many Cubans are still on foot in the evening and usually walk across the street.
