Pros:Compact car with adecuate sizefor the traffic volume in panamaCons:Pick up time was longer than usual Insurance we had bought from kayak website was not accepted and we had to buy one there at 3 times more the price. Making the rental very expensive for the type of rented car. Ee even presented the print out of the reservation and still their answer was taht it was not accepted. Young and unexpected staff. Poorly trained Drop off is very incovenient as it is not at the desk and the whole process can take a long time. Not a good experience this timeReviewed Jun 26 2016

Cons:The road and signs are all in Spanish and the counter personal are not fluent in English. We unfortunateyl got lost and the rental agency tried their best to escort us to our hotel. Driving in Panama however was very dangerous and would not rent a car there ever again.Reviewed Jan 29 2017

Optional services were forced on usPros:Car itself was okCons:They misrepresented pricing. We declined nsurance coverage since we have coverage under Visa credit card. Then Budget imposes what they listed as “Optional Services” which we declined but they insisted that despite the fact that we would not in reality be covered for those services, we still had to pay the $48+ fee.Reviewed Jan 24 2018

Horrible experienceCons:I rented a Hyundai Tucson to spend holidays with my family in Panama, I arranged the pickup of the car in Tocumen International Airport, at noon. I arrived around 2 and the person in the counter said they gave away my car because of the delay. When I made the reservation there was no place specifying this term, there's usually at 4 hour gap to pick up your car.Reviewed Jan 11 2016

Terrible! The car broke down and agency wants to charge me for it!Cons:Very poor customer service. Had car 1 day and it left me stranded. Clutch damage seems to be issue and agency wants to charge me for it. They also want to charge me for full rental and gas (which I was unable to fill because car broke down). Terrible customer service upon return. This was a terrible experience overall!Reviewed Nov 26 2018
