Where to hire a car in Cebu

A number of car hire companies are located in the city centre of Cebu in the Philippines. Bookings are usually made through mobile phone or landlines, although some of the local car hire companies have set up social media pages where customers may directly talk to the proprietors/owners. Some of the car hire companies here include Cebu Trip Rent A Car, Daijobu Rent A Car, Mabuhay Car Rentals, Pearl and AJ's Rent A Car, Guani Rent A Car, Cebu Rent A Car, and Citi Van Service. Do not expect to find wide range of vehicles, as most car hire companies here are small and only rents out at least two to four vehicles. Most of the rental cars also come with drivers, so simply inform providers if you would want to drive on your own. Price range play between P1,500 to P3,000 (49.84 to 99.68 NZD) depending on the vehicle, seating capacity, and terms of use.

What to expect when hiring a car from Cebu

Cebu City is the capital city of the Province of Cebu and is considered as the second capital of the Philippines due to its role as the second most populous metropolitan area (Metro Cebu) in the Philippines after Metro Manila. It is a significant centre of commerce, trade, and education in the region. Driving in Cebu is relatively fine due to good to great road conditions within the city. Outside the city centre however, there is no telling – as road conditions here may be good, bad, or even really poor. Traffic congestion and traffic levels are manageable at best, although can be a headache at the busier streets and main roads that lead to big establishments such as airports, shopping mall/s, tourist destinations, and around university areas. Road-side parking is not allowed especially in the bigger roads; pay parking is the better way to go.
