Buy travel insurance which include motorbike rentals.
The roads in Cebu are quite good, but when you’re traveling on the island you have to drive on unpaved roads. Which can be quite uncomfortable on a small scooter. Do not ride 2 people on 1 scooter when you rent a scooter in Cebu. It is very hard for the driver to carry a passenger for long distances. If your partner knows how to drive a scooter it is better that she or he have his own scooter.
The reason for not riding 2 people is that, when you ride on the mountains and brake, the person riding on your back slides onto you. If you are going from Cebu to the south of Cebu it is a 4 to 5 hours ride. Your arms will be full of pain by the time you will arrive. Also, you will not enjoy the trip. You can drive slowly and enjoy the view on the way.
