Secure Airport Transfers – Manila

ETS can support all airport transfers in Manila with local security drivers and executive protection teams. We facilitate secure airport transfers for a range of clients including Fortune 500 companies in Manila, the surrounding areas, and throughout The Philippines. Our security drivers are accompanied by our Executive Protection Officers to provide a low-profile meet and greet service and enable the secure movement to/from airport and hotels. Armed Executive Protection is common-place and often advised.

Within Manila itself, the local driving standard is undisciplined, with aggressive driving and disregard of traffic regulations, this combined with frequent smog and heavy traffic congestion creates a hazardous driving challenge in Manila.

Secure airport transfers and secure transportation in Manila and other major cities can be booked online if preferred. Please visit ExecSecure or alternatively, if you would prefer to speak to one of our team, contact us

ETS Security Overview – The Philippines

The threat of violent crime in Metro Manila is generally HIGH due to the prevalence of firearms; however, foreign nationals are not typically targeted. Violent crime, including assault, armed robbery, homicides, kidnapping, and carjacking poses the greatest threat in low-income areas of Metro Manila. Criminals in the Philippines do not hesitate to typically use force if a victim resists.

Terrorist activity continues to pose a threat from groups such as the Abu Sayyaf Group (ASG), Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters (BIFF), Jemaah Islamiyah (JI), New People’s Army (NPA and other associated groups. Some groups have pledged allegiance to Daesh (formally referred to as ISIL) and are likely to target westerners.

Attacks have been carried out in 2019 with small arms, IED’s and suicide bombers, targeting Catholic churches, a Military base and a mall. Kidnappings have caused casualties mostly in Mindanao and Sulu where foreigners were victimized.
