Driving a Vehicle - Cebu to Manila

Recommended Posts

Suntzu

Hello all you out there...

I'm moving from Cebu to Pampanga for a job. I want to move my cars. Road trip.

Anyone of you done that?

I'm looking for route suggestions -- drive & RORO from Cebu to Pampanga. Or, Cebu to Manila; even Cebu to Subic.

I'd like to save some money moving my cars myself.

Thanks all in advance.

Never done it but here is my route suggestion.

The simplest way is to put your cars on the 2GO ferry from Cebu City to Manila,  The boat trip is about 24 hours.

As for a route suggestion to drive them, my suggestion is to drive to Polambato port in Bogo and put your cars on the supershuttle RORO to Palompon Leyte. Pretty sure that RORO is cheaper then Cebu City to Ormoc. Then drive from Palompon to Allen on Samar. There is no need for a boat between Leyte and Samar as you cross over the San Juanico Bridge. At Allen, board the RORO for Matnog on Luzon. From Matnog, drive to your new home

By the way, the route I described, Bogo, Palompon, Allen and Matnog is how you get to Manila on the bus.

Thanks for the info.  This was a different route than we took but it looks like you were a day faster too.  We did more driving and only 2 ferries.  Enjoyable.  I have ridden my bike from San Carlos to Bacolod and love that trip.

I like the route Ray007 took.  And the San Carlos to Bacolod drive gets thumbs up from me as well.

If I was doing this trip, the part that would bug the s*t out of me is what route to take through Manila.. since you say you need to go all the way to Pampanga..   and what day/time I should try to arrive to make that trip.  I keep hearing these horror stories about traffic there.  Any suggestions?  or are there even many alternatives?

Ray..  which of these ferries were FastCat Ferries?  Looks like possibly all of them.

Have taken FastCat a few times..  It's more expensive that some of the alternatives, but they seem to be quite professional and so far they've always stuck to schedules.  That would help with trip planning.

I was relocated to Cebu from my company and when I inquired 2go to transport my Ford Everest they quoted me 35,000 peso.

Yeah, and that's why the car dealers here charge p40K or more delivery charge for a new vehicle.  I don't know how it is they sell any cars here.  Just buy in Manila and drive down.  If only there were a way for cars to be imported directly to Cebu.....hmmmmm.....some kind of port thingy or something.....

Buying in Manila I think you also get more choices.  Here it seems to be like, you can have any color you want, as long as it's white...

Hi. 
 

the fastcat was the last ferry we took from San Carlos to Toled. Since the timing was quite a wait. And yes they were more professional and they even did the safety demonstration 😁😁😁
