KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Makati

  • Car rentals in Makati can cut your travel time in half compared to public transit as you explore the Manila Metropolitan area. In Makati car rentals, you can visit sites within the city, including Fort Santiago and the National Museum of Fine Arts. You can get out on the open road and explore the entire island of Luzon. You can visit the Sea of Clouds at the top of Mount Pulag, enjoy the beaches and coves on the island’s northern shore, or appreciate the Mount Banashaw-San Cristobal Protected Landscape.
  • When looking into car rentals in Makati, consider renting from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (MNL), just a 20-minute drive southwest of Makati.  At MNL, car rental agencies are in the Arrivals Area in Terminals 1, 2, and 3. Not all agencies are in all terminals, so when you make your reservation, make sure that the agency is in the terminal where you will be landing.
  • Those in car rentals in Makati will be driving on the left side of the road. Makati and the surrounding streets of Manila are known for congested traffic, especially during peak rush hour times of 6 am to 10 am and 4 pm to 7 pm. Because traffic can be a problem all day long, consider adding a navigation device to your rental so that you can see how congested traffic is in real-time with a hands-free device. Because the traffic in Makati can back up quickly, those in car rentals in Makati should decide on a destination, determine a route, and get going without delay.
  • One of the biggest problems driving in Makati is the condition of the roads, which are often in disrepair or under construction. Drive cautiously, especially through work areas. Another problem is that there is lax enforcement of traffic laws, so people in car rentals in Makati need to drive defensively and calmly. When it is raining heavily in Makati, beware of floods, and don't try to drive through a flooded roadway.
  • Book your car hire in Makati at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact hire cars in Makati are around 39% more expensive than other car types, on average
