Car Hire Makati Helpful Information

Makati is a busy and crowded part of Metro Manila, fortunately we have a range of cars that include compact vehicles, perfect for dodging your way through the traffic and finding those tight little parking spaces. Of course, if you need a bigger car when travelling with family or a group, we can supply those too.

Driving in Makati, Philippines, particularly if you're unfamiliar with the area, can be quite challenging. Makati is one of the primary business districts of Metro Manila and can get very congested, especially during rush hours. Here's what you need to know:

Traffic Conditions:

  1. Congestion: Makati, especially around Ayala Avenue and other business areas, can get heavily congested, particularly during morning (7 am to 10 am) and evening (5 pm to 8 pm) rush hours.

  2. One-way Streets: There are many one-way streets in Makati. It's crucial to be aware of these to avoid violations and navigate efficiently.

  3. Parking: Finding parking can be challenging. Most malls and establishments offer paid parking, but street parking can be limited. Always park in designated areas.

Local Regulations and Practices:

  1. Number Coding: Metro Manila, including Makati, has a number coding scheme (also known as the Unified Vehicular Volume Reduction Program) to reduce traffic. Vehicles are barred from roads one day a week, based on the last digit of their plate number. Make sure to check the current scheme to know when your rental car is not allowed on the road.

  2. Jeepneys, Buses, and Tricycles: Public transportation vehicles often make sudden stops to pick up or drop off passengers. Be cautious and maintain a safe distance.

  3. Pedestrian Lanes: Always yield to pedestrians at pedestrian lanes. However, also be aware that not all pedestrians use these lanes, so always be on the lookout for people crossing the streets.

  4. Turning Left: Some intersections don't allow left turns, or they have a designated "left turn slot" further down the road. Always look for road signs.

Safety:

  1. Drive Defensively: Given the volume of vehicles and the mix of driving habits, it's crucial to drive defensively in Makati.

  2. Follow Road Signs: There are many road signs, including "No Loading/Unloading" signs. Make sure to follow them to avoid penalties.

  3. Beware of Motorcycles: There are many motorcycles and scooters in Makati. They often weave through traffic, so be extra cautious and check your mirrors frequently.

  4. Night Driving: While Makati is well-lit and relatively safe at night, be cautious of areas with less traffic and lighting.

Recommendations:

  1. Navigation: Use a reliable GPS or navigation app like Waze or Google Maps. These apps are beneficial because they provide real-time traffic updates and suggest faster routes.

  2. Familiarize Yourself: Before driving, familiarize yourself with the major streets, landmarks, and routes you plan to take.

  3. Stay Calm: Traffic in Makati can be stressful, especially during rush hours. Stay calm, play some music, and take your time.

In conclusion, while driving in Makati offers the convenience of moving at your own pace, it also comes with the challenge of navigating a busy urban area. Ensure you're well-prepared, patient, and always prioritize safety.
