Car rental FAQs

Find answers to frequently asked questions about car rentals in Manila, including policies, requirements, and more. FAQs were last updated on February 29, 2024.

Are there toll roads in Manila?

Manila has several toll roads that use a closed toll system. Major toll roads in Manila include North Luzon Expressway (NLEX), which connects the city to provinces in Northern Luzon; South Luzon Expressway (SLEX), a major expressway that connects Manila to provinces in Southern Luzon; the Skyway, an elevated road in the Philippines capital that offers a faster route for motorists; and Manila–Cavite Expressway (CAVITEX), which connects Manila to Cavite. Inquire with your car rental provider regarding their policies on toll roads.

What documents do I need to rent a car in Manila?
