Where to rent a car in Cebu

There are a number of car rental companies in Cebu, and travelers may access them through the central business district. Bookings are usually made by mobile or through phone, although most of these car rental agencies have pages on Facebook that travelers may access. Car rental companies include Citi Van Service, Cebu Rent a Car, Guani Rent a Car, Pearl an AJ’s Rent A Car, Mabuhay Car Rentals, Daijobu Rent a Car, Cebu Trip Rent A Car, and many others. Almost all car rental agencies here are locally owned, with car types rented out ranging from Toyota Innovas to bigger vans and group-sharing vehicles. Most of the cars for rent come with a driver, so travelers should simply arrange with their chosen companies if they would want to drive on their own. Prices range from PHP 1,500 pesos to 3,000 (roughly US$22-67), depending on the vehicle and the terms of use.

What to expect when renting a car from Cebu

Road conditions in the central business district of Cebu are relatively fine, although outside of the centre there is no telling – especially in the more remote areas. Traffic is manageable, although it can be congested and heavy at the busier streets and in the main roads, especially from the airport and near the commercial establishments and attractions. Parking spaces are usually paid, and parking on roads is almost always not allowed.

Getting to your destination

Naga
One of the first-class municipalities in the Cebu Island, Naga is known for its annual Dagitab Festival, and its Hispanic roots that have been set up by the Spaniards as they came in. When in Naga, visit the St. Francis Church, and eat in the local restaurants to taste some of the best dishes in the island.

From Cebu City, Naga can be reached by heading south on V Rama Avenue toward Nogras Street, and then turning right onto Natalio Bacalso Avenue on to Rizal Avenue to the Coastal Road/CSCR. Turn left on to Cebu S Road to Nataio B. Bacalso S. National Highway, and then straight ahead to Naga.

Mandaue
Closer to Cebu is the island’s industrial city Mandaue, which is known for its shopping, nightlife, amusement parks, and diving – diving that is mostly underrated but professional and almost world class.

Visit Mandaue by driving from N. Escario Street, Pope John Paul II Avenue and Lopez Jaena Street all the way to central Mandaue.

Lapu-Lapu City and Mactan
A highly historical place, Mactan does not disappoint – it is one of the key cities that have dictated the history of Spain and the Philippines. It is also surrounded by waters, making it a great spot to discover and enjoy.

See Lapu-Lapu by heading to General Maxilom Avenue towards Sergio Osmena Boulevard and Ouano Avenue towards F. Mendoza Street in Mandaue, and then on to the Mandaue-Mactan Road all the way to the city.
