Colon Guide

Colon City is home to over 200,000 and is the world's largest duty-free port. It was founded in 1850 by Americans working on the Panama railroad. Located in the heart of the city is a statue commemorating the town's founding fathers: Aspinwall, Stephens and Chauncey. Along with many others, they battled deadly tropical illnesses including yellow fever and malaria.

The city is highly urban and is best known for its high violent crime rate. You may wonder where the attraction to the city lies for tourists. Well, while Panama's second largest city has a notorious reputation it provides fantastic access to one of the country's most underdeveloped and inaccessible provinces: Colon.

When exploring this province, car hire is essential. It enables your party to travel safely and independently in air conditioned comfort. Within Colon City, car hire can be found at: Plaza Colon 2000. Colon 2000 is a modern cruise port and duty-free shopping complex.

A car hire allows you to take in all the natural beauty that this region possesses. The Panama-Colon Road provides a fast route to Panama City. Driving from the Pacific coast to the turquoise Caribbean takes just two hours.

With no tides, the Atlantic coast offers some of the safest swimming in the world as well as beautiful, white, sandy beaches. The most famous beach here is Playa Langosta.

Nearby, the pretty seaside town of Portobello has a number of antiquities which beg to be explored. The ruins of five Spanish forts and the Aduana Real treasure house can be found here. Sir Francis Drake's lead tomb is located just outside the town. The Customs Building is home to a museum dedicated to Panama's immigrants. The Black Christ Church and Museum is located in the town centre. The town also has a busy yachting marina.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.

How can I change or cancel my reservation?

You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less).
