Car hire at Varadero airport: Get a cheap hired car

Car hire offers can be found in front of the airport building. As a rule, a car hire company can take delivery of the car booked online on the Car park belonging to the airport and inspect it in advance. Rental cars booked in advance will be available for collection at the time agreed in the booking on the day of arrival.

Some of the services offered by car hire companies have a pick-up point in the vicinity of the airport. This applies in particular to car hire companies that do not have a handover location at Juan Gomez International Airport. The pick-up station for rental cars is shared by various car hire companies. A popular pick-up station is also located at the "Parque Josone". This is located approximately halfway to Varadero city centre on the peninsula. Equipped with baggage and in view of the usually hot temperatures, it is advisable to take advantage of the shuttle bus service for your journey to the hired car pick-up station on the edge of the airport grounds. If you hire a hired car with pick-up at Josone Park on the peninsula, you will need to take a taxi for the approximately 30 minute drive to pick up the hired car.

However, you should bear in mind that at Varadero Juan Gualberto Gomez airport and throughout Cuba, car hire offers are very limited. In this case, it is advisable to find offers of a suitable car hire company in Cuba from home and to hire the desired car in good time.

Cheap car hire at Varadero Airport - Important information

Regardless of whether you pick up your hired car at the airport or at a pick-up station, you should always check the car's condition. Above all, existing damage must be documented and ideally photographed as proof. Complaints must be reported immediately, both at the local car hire company and at the pickup station when the keys are handed over. A hired car pick-up station usually has the same handover protocol as a direct car hire service. Any damage not listed must be recorded in the handover protocol.

You should pay attention to this when taking over the hired car:

  • Working lights
  • Working brakes
  • No scratches or damage

The journey from the Juan Gualberto Gomez airport in Varadero takes about five minutes. Other petrol stations are usually located on the highways leading inland as well as in all major cities.
