First, let’s explore the car type possibilities for a car rental in Palawan. There are usually the private car rental, and the jeepney type of car rental.

If the option is a private car rental in Palawan, which is the usual mode of car rental for tour purposes, the intention often is for a limited number of tourists, and mostly for roaming around a city or town.
A car rental usually takes in 5 passengers, driver included, without much space left for luggage or picnic provisions, and this travel is often exclusively for good city road conditions, at least asphalt treated, if not concrete paved.
