KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Panama City

  • One of the main advantages to having a car during your time in Panama City is that it opens up the countryside for easy exploration. There are a number of spectacular spots that are just perfect as day trips from Panama City. Some of these spots include Cajones de Chame, which is 90 km (56 miles) away from the city, and Laguna de San Carlos, which is 110 km (68 miles) away.
  • If you’re flying in, you’ll probably want to pick up your hire car from the airport so you can start your vacation right away. If your flight is arriving at Tocumen International Airport, then you will find the hire car offices in the airport’s Arrivals Hall.
  • It is worth remembering that cell phone use is strictly forbidden when driving in Panama. This is important to remember because many tourists use their phones to navigate Panama City. So stay on the safe side of the law by having a passenger be the guide during your time in Panama City.
  • Rush hour doesn’t last overly long in Panama City, but nonetheless it is definitely worth avoiding. Generally, drivers can expect the morning rush hour to begin shortly after 7:00 a.m. and to last until 9:00 a.m. The afternoon rush hour begins around 4:00 p.m. and winds down at around 6:00 p.m. during the work week. Calle 50 and Via España are two roads worth avoiding during rush hour, as they both can become quite bogged down.

Insights shared by verified travellers who hired a car in Panama City 
Verified travelerJan 2024
I would tell them to hire a chauffeur with his own car and a good driving record. It’s cheaper at the end plus they don’t have to worry about the awful traffic there since the driver would be an expert at it and also responsible for his or hers own vehicle and insurance. Actually I’m thinking it would be a good business to start there.
FelipeJan 2024
I used Waze and it seemed to get me around fine. Had to be careful with traffic, people drive fast and they like to dart in and out sometimes pretty close but otherwise normal city driving
Verified travelerJan 2024
Avoid using toll roads, if possible as this will add to your final bill. Obey speed limits and respect other drivers and there should be no issues.
JAIROSep 2023
En panama se debe tener cuidado con el tráfico, es de mucho cuidado hay mucha imprudencia. Si se requiere Viajar hacia el oeste entre semana es mejor salir por lo menos con 1 hora de anticipación adicional porque hay mucho trancon por las obras
AlbertJul 2023
Defensive driving should be the first thing you do when you get on the road. The traffic is hectic and busy most of the time. Try NOT to be on the main roads between 3 pm and 7 pm, as this is the heaviest time of day for workers going home, all over the city.

Driving in Panama City is hectic and busy most of the time. Defensive driving should be at the top of your list as soon as you get on the road.

Booked a Thrifty reservation for 6:00 pm pick up at the PAC airport in Panama City, Panama. HOWEVER all of the airport car rentals in that location close at 5:00 pm. NO where on any of my reservation information did it say that they would be closed. HOW can Kayak/ Thrifty even make and guarantee a reservation time when the location is closed. I also spoke to a representative twice to confirm the car size two days before my arrival. I had to take an Uber to the Thrifty location In Panama City and there- the customer service representatives were extremely helpful. I eventually did get a car (it was vacation week so the options were limited) Also the customer service agents at the office said that they were not surprised, that this happens often.

Company is not clear about charges and even didn't want to give a printed receipt after we returned the car. Alleging within 30 min you would get by email. We had to insist because we were leaving the city without knowing final charge. When he finally printed the receipt there was 40 dollar difference from what he told us verbally.

Alamo as some others on their groups are nothing but thieves. They scam me from a luxury car to a cheap one claiming that AMEX didn’t cover insurance for the luxury car while holding in their hands a letter from them stating that I was covered. But still charged me the luxury car rate blaming on Kayak taking their share off the top first. In other words they pretty much said not to use Kayak at all. I wouldn’t recommend Alamo or any of their affiliates to a dog. I’m not the first one they’ve done this to.

Pros:

The price was amazing at first, $4 per day and $9 for insurance.

Cons:

The $9 insurance purchased through kayak was not recognized in Panama by budget and I was forced to buy insurance through Budget as well. The cheapest insurance was $18. It was still a good deal but I felt a little deceived by the price because the obligatory additional insurance was not mentioned as far as I know and the insurance I did by wasn't recognized by budget, so basically a waste of money turning a good deal into an average deal :(

When we returned the car they noticed a very small chip in the windshield and said I would need to pay for a new windshield. My passenger says he noticed the chip when we drove off. When we picked up the car we watched the inspector go around it. He didn't look at the glass, and the chip is very hard to see from the outside. The visa charge is $600 - $700 above the rental but they have not sent me the detail of charges I requested. They haven't responded to my email. The phone number provided by Dollar corporate is out of service and they didn't pick up at the 800 number on the brochure. Dollar US says it isn't their problem because the Panama agency is independent.

Pros:

The pickup/drop off could not have been any closer to the business, it was great.

Cons:

Upfront pricing would have been appreciated. The price you get quoted is GREAT...come to find out it is not the case at all. It is actually 3/4 times more expensive (normal price for US rental). The quote is only for the car BUT you have to get insurance, from Panama (no third party insurance companies outside of country are accepted). So, what started off as a $81 total price for 5 days turned into a $240 price tag AND I had to cancel the third party insurance I purchased (still waiting for my reimbursement).

Cons:

I was overcharged on the liability insurance, the disclosures on CarRentals.com the partner stated "PLI wo purchase of CDW- 12.00 USD Per Day" but I was charged 16 per day, I asked to be given the rate I was promised but they kindly refused, contract No 5044014

Looked like it had been in a war zone..5. A friend rented a similar car from Thrifty, with 12k miles, they replaced a tire prior to renting, the insurance was 200$ less for more time. 6. Today when I went to return the car, they said I was a day late and wanted me to pay an additional day.

Pros:

Ease of access, in-terminal pick-up and drop-offli

Cons:

Limited locations, limited and old fleet. Arrived to the terminal and was “upgraded” to a larger vehicle, but the car was not clean, the AC couldn’t be regulated, not even turned off, windshield wipers did not function, oh did I mention the car was 5 years old and a gas guzzler? Tried to find a location to change the car but there were only 3 locations, one of them I went to twice, the first time the only clerk working had left home early and the second time the clerk didn’t show up to work. In the end I was able to have the car changed but it’s just too much of a struggle to just get a descent vehicle from the start. Will not use this company again.

Pros:

They refused the type of car that we had booked. Then tried to oversell the insurance - told us that the insurance we bought did not meet "mandatory" requirements. And finally proceeded to charge a $10,000.00 deposit on our credit card!

Pros:

Kayak quoted 130 dollars, when I got to hertz the charge was over 500 dollars. I was in Panama as a volunteer translator for a small ngo, I was going to pick up the rental, buyback once the price hike occurred, I told the ngo that they would have to pay for the rental. They agreed. If the difference was fifty/sixty dollars, no problem, but the difference in price was over 400 dollars. Very upset and disappointed in that

All ok apart from pricing. Booked one way ride and I was charged extra 200$ just for this. No indication during booking that the price can be so high. I've rented many times with different companies around the globe and always booking price was the one you pay. Minor adjustments such as insurance ok but not 5x more. Knowing this before booking would make me book Avis which had better drop-off location.

Pros:

It was terrible. I booked and arrived to the location to be told that the car was not available and that they had sent me an email. The email had arrived minutes before the rental time! And the cost of the taxi to the rental location? And the time lost in a vacation? Do not trust the cars the rental agencies indicate are available, same thing happened in Hertz at the Panama Airport, I arrive and they indicated that hopefully a client would return the car at the time I had booked the car, of course it never arrived.

Pros:

The friendliness of the agent at the rental car desk. She was helpful and didn't try to push unnecessary extras. Our three day rental was $33; with the added taxes and fees, the final price was $129. I only went with the mandatory insurance and waived the $7/day fee for tolls. When we returned the car, we paid for the tolls that were charged during our trip (in Panama, the toll booths are automated like smartpass).

Cons:

The wait for pickup was long because there was only one agent working.
