You won’t find many places where you can rent a car in El Nido proper, so the best way to go is to rent a car while you’re in Puerto Princesa. Thanks to our online office, you can even book a car rental in Puerto Princesa, and get the car ready for you when you get off the plane!
There are several models of cars available for renting in Puerto Princesa. First of, there are the city cars, like Eon (Hyundai), Picanto (Kia) or Swift (Suzuki). They are perfect for Puerto Princesa city, but not the best solution to go all the way up to El Nido. The reason is that the road between Puerto Princesa and El Nido still has unconstructed parts, that can be considered “off-road”, and a smaller car isn’t adapted to that kind of use.
To rent a car to go to El Nido, it’s preferable to choose a SUV model or a van, like Adventure (Mitsubishi), N350 Van (Nissan) or HI-ACE Commuter (Toyota). Your vehicle will be fit for the kind of roads that you’ll encounter on the way to El Nido, and in the surroundings of the town.
Your car rental will take place in Puerto Princesa, and you’ll need to bring the vehicle back to Puerto Princesa if you want to avoid any pick-up fee. You must carry with you your driver license, and will have to leave your passport to the car rental company. The price is per day.
