In the Philippines, OLX is an online website where you can buy and sell anything and that includes cars. There is a wide variety of vehicles you can select from and their price varies as well. If you find a vehicle you like, you must be meticulous when you check the specifications. Most of the vehicles being sold on this website are second hand that’s why you will be surprised why these are very affordable.
It is easy to buy a vehicle in the #Philippines as long as you are financially capable. You can get a bank loan and buy a new car after you have passed the tedious screening and pre qualification requirements. It is much easier to buy from OLX because the cars are either purchased outright. It also depends on the seller if they are willing to sell it to you on an installment basis. Buying from these sites will not require you too much documentation. You do have to scrutinize if the seller is legit otherwise, you might end up buying a “hot car” or a vehicle that was stolen and resold.
That is why van rental deals are lower with #Limoscanner than OLX. With a car rental you also have the luxury of choosing the vehicle you like to drive. You also have the option of hiring a driver when you rent the vehicle. If ever you are not happy with the performance of the vehicle, you can always have it replaced with another. Unlike when you buy from OLX or any online website, once you buy the vehicle you are already responsible for any engine malfunctions that existed during the purchase.
With a car rental, you don’t need to worry if the vehicle breaks down in the middle of the road. Before the car rental service releases the vehicle, they make sure it is clean and roadworthy. All their vehicles are well maintained and they have a high standard for its sanitation. You are confident that you will be getting your money’s worth whenever you hire a car rental.
You only pay for the duration of the time you hired the vehicle which comes out more economical if you will be staying in the Philippines for a few weeks or months. If you hire the driver, you won’t worry about violating any traffic rules or getting lost in the side streets to get to where you are going. These drivers are well trained and vetted. Limoscanner only hires the best drivers in the country to ensure that you will be travelling safely.
If you think buying a second hand car from OLX is more economical, you will have to calculate the total costs of repair and maintenance you will have to incur in the years to come. Typically it will come out more than what you will spend if you just hired a car instead. It will still be up to you to make that decision.
