rentcarmanila's car booking process


Before you rent a car in Manila, make sure you hold a valid driver’s license that allows you to drive in the Philippines. Furthermore, the license must be in English. Otherwise, you may visit the local embassy of your issuing country for an official translation of the license.

If you plan to drive in the Philippines for a maximum of 90 days, you don’t need to apply for a special permit. Your current driver’s license is sufficient.

If your stay exceeds 90 days, however, you need to apply for a local driver’s license. When you visit the Land Transportation Office (LTO) for application, be ready with your current driver’s license, visa and alien certificate, passport, medical certificate, and TIN.
