Car hire excess insurance in Tocumen

Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) & Theft Protection Waiver

Collision damage waiver and theft protection are insurance options that cover renters from paying high penalty fees if the car is stolen or returned damaged. Some Tocumen car providers already include Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) and Theft Protection Waiver into the rental price but not all of them. We recommend always be aware of your coverage when renting a car in in Tocumen.

Deductible

Keep in mind that car hire excess insurances often have a deductible clause, which is the amount you’ll have to pay if something happens during the time of your rental. If you want to avoid unwanted surprises, you should consider adding a no-deductible option to your Tocumen car rental.

Pros: Staff was friendly and helpful. Limited English but we were able to understand each other.
4.4 OkayJan 29 2017
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.
7.6 GoodJul 18 2016
Beware of hidden policies/charges like obligatoryPros: 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 :(

Costos adicionalesPros: El carro es muy nuevo y son excelentes modelosCons: Al hacer el check in y retirar el vehiculo nos dicen que se tiene que pagar seguros y otros costos que deberian de incluirse en la reserva que se hace en Kayak, es molesto porque nunca tienes un precio real de lo que te costara la renta hasta que llegas a retirar el carro, querian hacerme una reserva de $5000 si no agarraba el seguro que ellos querian y eso es ridiculo que se respalden con ese monto cuando las rentadoras tienen sus propios seguros y no deben cargarle ese tipo de costos al cliente
8.4 ExcellentMar 5 2017
Better experience than expectedPros: 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.

Not as low price as you thinkPros: Older model cAr, but in good shape, plenty of roomCons: The extra charges, did not wanted to take my coverage from my platinum credit card or from Amex, forced me to take their own Insurrance or would not rent the car, separate Insurrance for collision, Insurrance for tires, Insurrance for windshield, etc. From 12 dollars a day went up to 65 dollars, not what you expect
4.8 OkayFeb 2 2017
Be aware of extra charges at the airportPros: The smiling faces of the ladies at dropping off the carCons: The extra charges that are added to the vehicle and with out them you can not get your car. My flight was delayed 45 minutes and it took my luggage longer than usual to get out, I was told they only hold a reservation for 1 hour, and started to add more charges to the rental. Insurrance for tires and windshield, insurance for liability, toll fees, surcharges, etc.. Come to find out that if you go to sixt.com is cheaper.

Pros: The staff once in the office were very friendly and efficientCons: The pick up line was very long. Waited ~60 min outside before seeing an agent The car had sand on the rig like it had just been to a beach.
2.0 MediocreNov 18 2019
Pros: Staff was friendly but reservation is not available when booked the same day. I was quoted a different price on Kayak and at the counter was 15x higher. Total BS
7.2 GoodSep 6 2019
Cons: Took the midsized SUV. Toyota. For going up in the mountains. Had a gutless engine, smaller than the sedan. Had to put it in 1st and redline the tac to go up paved roads.
2.0 MediocreAug 13 2019
Pros: They have different rules in Panama then they charge you a whole different amount on the rentalCons: It would have been better if your website wouldn’t false advertise the rental terms and conditions
6.8 GoodJun 25 2019
Cons: There was hidden cost not disclosed to us when we reserved the car online. We were only made aware of this hidden cost (mandatory insurance) when we picked up the car at the airport. The price to rent the car more than doubled the price we were quoted at the time we reserved it online.
2.0 MediocreApr 27 2019
Pros: NothingCons: I reserved the car online. A few days later I received an email offering insurance with Allianz. I got the insurance. When I was going to pick up the car I was told I had to pay an extra 130 usd. I asked them why and they told me for insurance purposes. I showed them the insurance I bought......
5.2 OkayApr 21 2019
Pros: They provided me a new car with little to no miles on it but that is the best thing about the service I received.Cons: They misadvertise their price with my online $85 booking turning into $300 when I arrived at the counter due to a mandatory insurance that they did not include upfront. Also hit me with a $10 charge for having the gas just off the full line.

Gave our reservation awayCons: When we arrived at the airport, we found that Alamo gave our car away so that our reservation was good for nothing. We were left to take an expensive taxi to our hotel and instead of enjoying our night, we had to spend more than three hours trying to find a car. Never going with Alamo again.

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).
2.0 MediocreJun 23 2019
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
4.4 OkayApr 23 2019
Cons: I was deceived by the price of the rental and was assured by national that there were no hidden costs. I enended up paying 300 dollars in hidden costs once I got to my destination.

Vacation SUV rentalCons: I secured rental cost but upon my pickup agent stated in Panama I must purchase their insurance coverage to get the vehicle. Very disappointing not reading or finding the fine print anywhere to sign on to their high cost when my insurance has always covered my car rentals in the US.
4.4 OkayMar 18 2017
Beware of renting cars in PanamaPros: Car was nice.Cons: The rental price quadrupled when I went to pick the car up. A bunch of feed not listed on Kayak were added that quadrupled the rate I was quoted.
2.0 MediocreJan 26 2017
Pros: the initial transition was very pleasantCons: While, having mechanical issues with the car, we still had to pay for it. I don't think. I'd use them again.
3.6 MediocreJan 5 2017
They want us to buy a them a new windshield.Cons: 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 personnel were nice and somewhat helpfulCons: 1.They didn't have the car I rented 2. They upcharged me for getting the car I rented. 3. The vehicle we rented had in excess of 50kmiles, was in poor mechanical condition, tires way beyond safe4. 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.
2.8 MediocreMay 29 2018
Not worth the savingsPros: Ease of access, in-terminal pick-up and drop-offliCons: 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.

Relatively easy, not as cheap as it seemed onlinePros: Counter is indoors, the guy that checked out our vehicle was really nice. They did have a wifi hotspot for $10/day.Cons: It took quite a while to check out the vehicle and to turn it back in. Instead of the $5/day online, the cost was $28/day with taxes and required insurance. I expected that it would be more, but it's hard to compare prices with other rental agencies.
3.2 MediocreMay 29 2017
The cost was 300% higher than expected and the car had problemsPros: The size of the car was able to accommodate our needsCons: No one spoke english. The cost was initially 450% higher than advertised. We got it down to 300% by agreeing to a $10,000 deposit. I have auto insurance on my travel credit card and through my regular car insurance, but it was not accepted. "Mandatory" Panama specific insurance is apparently required. Additionally, the car had a slow leak in a tire and a weak battery that left us stranded. Please ensure future price quotes include a list of any mandatory insurance. An internet search indicated this "bait and switch" approach to pricing is common in Panama.
3.2 MediocreApr 21 2017
Ripoff ArtistsPros: Our car was fine, though not the one we requested.Cons: The problems began with an unstaffed desk. After waiting for a long time, we learned that our car was dirty because the car cleaners didn't arrive. One staffer did some basic cleaning while the other worked us through the intricacies of mandatory insurance in Panama. I had printed proof of insurance from my credit card, which only got me so far. When we returned the vehicle, they claimed a tiny chip in the windshield, which was undoubtedly already there when we claimed the car but too small to notice, as damage worth $150. Since we hadn't taken their basic insurance, we had to pay out of pocket. Total scammers. Deal with reputable carriers instead of these crooks.
8.0 ExcellentMar 30 2017
Buyer beware when car renting in PanamaPros: Great vehicle, Subaru Forrester. High clearance, all wheel drive and good AC. People at Ace were very friendly and helpful, but the huge price adjustment for mandatory insurance really tainted the whole experience.Cons: $50 + for car insurance is a scam. Your US company won't work, if you have an American Express card Amex will cover around 50% of the requirement, but rental agencies don't accept Amex. Heard several horror stories of people being charged hundreds of dollars for a "dented oil pan". When was the last time you inspected under the car? At Tocumen IAP in Panama City, Panama there was lots of construction requiring a 200 yard bag drag across rocks, boulders and mud to get to the cars. Guy inspecting the car with us recommended taking pictures of every scratch and dent for our own protection.
2.0 MediocreMar 12 2017
No car when I arrivedCons: I made the reservation over 2 months prior and when I showed up, at the exact time I was supposed to, the vehicle that I reserved was not available. I had to have a 4x4 with 5-7 seats, but they only had a subcompact for 4 people. They didn't even care. I had to go to another company and pay a premium for not having a reservation. I will NEVER use ACE again and will tell everyone I know not to use them as well. They are dishonest and could care less about the customer!!

6.0 GoodMay 22 2021
Pros: Professional Staff. Car was ready on arrival. Easy pick up and drop off. Clean vehicle.Cons: Mechanical issues with vehicle. For some bizarre reason the outside of the windshield remained fogged up on humid and rainy days. Always had to have the windshield wipers on. Electrical issues with the infotainment center and fuel gage. After fill up gage would show about 85% full, after driving through about a quarter tank of gas the gauge would show full. 25% markup on tolls using the E-pass. Wanted to charge me Collision Insurance, but I declined because I was covered by my credit card, so they applied a different insurance that costs the same.
