Moped Rental in Cebu (6 Months)?

Hi,

Could anyone suggest a place to rent a moped for 6 months in Cebu? I will be residing in Mactan as I am studying at IAFT from Feb 1st till July 1st.

Just contacted a few places, however the prices on their websites would cost me $5000 on their weekly prices shown...which is obviously WAY too expensive.

About me: British, 25, male, driving car 7 years, moped 3 months.

If anyone can recommend a good place to contact much appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Charles

Might be cheaper to buy one and sell it at the end of the 6 months.

a honda bravo 100cc brand new scooter is around 60k pesos. the problem is a new unit takes over 2 months to register. buy a 2nd hand one at around 30-50% of brand new then sell it again after 6 months.

Is that usd?

Is so, you are looking at the wrong websites. Anything priced in USD is specially over priced for foreigners.

But I agree with al22tecc. Buy something second hand.

Just out of curiosity, I checked the monthly rate with a friend of mine who rents bikes.

He doesn't actually have a monthly rate it is a 4 weekly rate. His 4 weekly rate for a 100cc Honda Wave is P9000.

So, I still think you should buy your own second hand bike.
