Do you offer insurance coverage options?

Our rental rates include insurance coverage. Please see the details below.

We offer several insurance options, including Collision Damage Waiver (CDW), Personal Accident Insurance (PAI), and Supplemental Liability Insurance (SLI).

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW): This provides basic damage coverage for the car’s bodywork. However, CDW typically comes with an excess amount, which is the portion you would need to pay towards repairs. The deductible ranges from P10,000.00 to P35,000.00, depending on the car type. Note that CDW only covers the car’s bodywork; you are responsible for the full cost of repairs and any administration charges for damage to windows, wheels, the undercarriage, interior, or personal belongings.

Supplemental Liability Insurance (SLI): SLI covers damages to other people’s property, such as their cars, and medical costs for injuries sustained in an accident. The maximum coverage is P100,000.00 for property damage and P100,000.00 for physical injury.

Personal Accident Insurance (PAI): PAI covers accidental medical costs, emergency care, and accidental death for the driver and passengers during the rental period. The coverage limit is up to P50,000.00 per person. Please note, this insurance does not cover injuries sustained by individuals renting motorcycles from Saferide Car Rental.

Can I return my rental car after hours?

Yes, after-hours returns are available at many of our locations. An out-of-hours fee will apply. Please contact us in advance so our personnel can prepare for your arrival.

What is your cancellation policy?

Here is our cancellation policy:

  • Cancellations made less than 7 days before the rental schedule will incur a 20% cancellation fee.
  • Cancellations made 4 days prior to the rental schedule will incur a 50% cancellation fee.
  • Cancellations made 3 days prior to the rental schedule or no-shows will be charged 100% of the total rental amount.

How do I extend my rental period?

If you need to extend your rental period, please contact our customer service hotline. Extensions are subject to availability and may incur additional charges.

Do you offer one-way rentals?

Yes, we offer one-way rentals between many of our locations. Please specify your drop-off location at the time of booking to see if one-way service is available for your rental.

How much is the refundable security deposit or cash bond?

The refundable security deposit or cash bond ranges from 3,000 to 35,000 depending on the model of the vehicle rented.

Can local residents pay a cash-only deposit? What are the requirements?

Yes, local residents can pay a cash-only deposit. In addition to the refundable security deposit, they must provide:

  • An additional valid government ID.
  • Current proof of billing or a valid company ID.

Can I have the rental car delivered to my location?

Yes, we offer vehicle delivery for an additional fee. The minimum charge is P300.00, but the exact amount may vary based on your location. Please contact us for a quote.

We recommend giving us at least 24 hours’ notice to arrange for vehicle delivery. However, we may be able to accommodate shorter notice periods depending on availability.

Are Foreign Driver’s allowed to drive in the Philippines?

Foreigners who hold a valid driver’s license issued by the road authorities of their home country can drive here in the Philippines for up to 90 days after their arrival, provided that their license is in English. If the foreign driver’s license is not in English, the foreigner should have an official English translation from the local embassy of the issuing country.

If you plan to drive and stay longer than 90 days, you must get a local driver’s license from the Land Transportation Office (LTO).

How much is the Deductible/Participation Fee?

If the car’s bodywork gets damaged, the most you’ll pay towards repairs covered by the Collision Damage Waiver is the Paticipation Fee. This cover is only valid if you stick to the terms of the rental agreement. It doesn’t cover other parts of the car (e.g. windows, wheels, interior or undercarriage), or charges (e.g. for towing or down time), or anything in the car (e.g. child seats, GPS devices or personal belongings).

Motorcycle – P5,000.00
Economy Car/Sedan – P10,000.00
Mid-Size Sedan/MPV/Minivan/Pick-up Trucks – P20,000.00
Vans/SUV – P35,000.00
