Top tips for renting a car in Palawan

  • If you are flying to the province of Palawan in the Philippines, Puerto Princesa International Airport (PPS) will be a likely destination since it is the main international airport serving the region. After alighting from your flight and clearing out of the customs and baggage claim areas, you will find car rental counters located in the arrivals hall. At the rental desks, you will be guided by friendly professionals in signing your rental agreement and vehicle selection. The rental cars are parked just outside the airport terminal building, on Rizal Avenue.
  • Driving in Palawan can be difficult and disorganized. The province's roads are often narrow and winding, rendering navigation challenging, particularly for those unfamiliar with the region. During the morning rush hour from 7:00 am to 9:00 am and the late afternoon rush hour from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm, the major roads, including the North National Highway, become significantly congested, making driving more difficult. Therefore, drivers must employ patience, caution, and careful trip planning to navigate Palawan's traffic-clogged roads during peak hours.
  • Palawan is renowned for its amazing scenery, which includes rugged terrain, extensive forests, and lovely coastal roadways. Therefore, a compact SUV vehicle that is adaptable and durable would be a great option for traveling in this region. Combining comfort, fuel efficiency, and off-road capabilities, a compact SUV is well-suited for Palawan's varied road conditions. The compact SUV also features high ground clearance and an all-wheel-drive system that would facilitate navigation over uneven terrain, while its compact size would be beneficial for navigating narrow roads and congested streets.
  • In Palawan, Philippines, there is a regulation that mandates the use of child restraint systems (CRS), commonly referred to as the child car seat law. Generally, child restraint systems (CRS) refer to child safety seats or booster seats. The law applies to children who are under the age of 12 and who have a height that is less than or equal to 147 cm (4 ft 11 in). Note that the child restraint system (CRS) should be selected based on the kid's age, height, and weight.

Contrary to transit, which operates on rigid schedules and predetermined routes, a rental car enables you to customize your journeys and drive to remote destinations that are inconvenient to reach via buses or trains. In addition, renting a car is more economical for families or groups than purchasing individual tickets for each member because the costs can be divided among multiple passengers.

  • What is driving like in Palawan?

    The roads of Palawan are a mixture of coastal highways, scenic country roads, and dense jungles, creating an exciting driving experience. It is essential to observe, however, that road conditions can vary significantly, from well-maintained highways in urban areas to rough and narrow paths in remote areas. Speed limits in towns and populated areas range from around 30 to 60 km/h (18 to 37 mph). On highways, the speed limit is about 80 km/h (50 mph). You should therefore exercise caution, obey traffic rules, and give way to pedestrians at crosswalks.

  • How old do you have to be to rent a car in Palawan?

Some rental suppliers may require drivers to be at least 25 years old to rent luxury vehicles or have extra limitations based on the driver's experience and driving record. Additionally, note that you should have a valid driver's license and an International Driving Permit (IDP).
