Top tips for renting a car in the Philippines

  • Getting around the Philippines can be accomplished using public transportation, especially if you’re staying in or around the country’s major cities, like Manila and Cebu City. However, for seeing the off-the-beaten-track areas of the country on your own schedule, renting a car in the Philippines is essential. Getting to areas like Mt. Pinatubo by transportation methods besides rental car can be extremely inconvenient.
  • The road conditions between major cities in the Philippines are often very drivable, with most of the variable road conditions existing in rural areas and in areas closer to the mountainous regions of the Philippines. If you’re planning on driving to the natural attractions in the Philippines, you’ll need a four-by-four to safely make your way on dirt roads, jungle paths, and narrow mountain passes.
  • The laws for securing your child in a vehicle in the Philippines mainly regulate the use of front and rear seats. Children 12 and under must sit in the rear seat, unless they meet the minimum height requirement of 4 ft 11 in. Child car seats that are appropriate for your child’s age must be used, so the one you travel with will suffice for your stay in the Philippines.
  • If you’ll be driving around Manila, you’ll have to be aware that there are days when you’re not allowed to drive in the Manila metro area, which are referenced by the last number on your car’s license plate. Plates ending in 1 and 2 can’t be driven on Mondays, plates ending in 3 and 4 can’t be driven on Tuesdays, plates ending in 5 and 6 can’t be driven on Wednesdays, plates ending in 7 and 8 can’t be driven on Thursdays, and plates ending in 9 and 0 can’t be driven on Fridays.

Also, cards are widely accepted, so you won’t have to carry cash.
