The style of driving in the Philippines depends on where you are. In metro areas like Cebu City and Manila, traffic jams and heavy pedestrian traffic is the norm. In rural areas, you’ll have to watch out for wildlife and varying road conditions. Tolls are present on all of the country’s major expressways, so be sure to have cash on hand when you’re traveling on these roads. Drivers must drive on the right side of the road.
The minimum age to rent a car in the Philippines ranges from 21 to 25, depending on the rental car agency.

While a valid license is required to rent a car in the Philippines, you won’t need an international driver’s permit.
