The other day we were in a trike and the driver actually stopped at the owner's place (on the way) and paid him his rental fee. Now does that mean they are at risk of losing money, particularly in a large city - I don't think so.

So yes, it's a sob story and no justification for overcharging.
So how much is the rental fee then? Is it several thousand pesos a day? It must be something affordable or else there wouldnt be so many taxis everywhere if the deal wasnt fair right? But ripoffs are common in the Philippines so its possible the drivers get ripped off by the taxi company too. You could ask the driver but they can easily lie. Filipinos dont believe lying is wrong i hear, its just part of life.
