Panama City Guide

Car hire is highly recommended when exploring both Panama City and its nation. This Central American area offers some of the world's most breathtaking Atlantic and Pacific coastlines as well as some of the globe's highest temperatures. While public transportation is relatively inexpensive within the region, it can be time-consuming and hinder your ability to travel independently.

Air-conditioning is a necessity for your car hire choice. It will allow your party to explore Panama easily in comfort. Within Panama City, car hire can be found near Av. Balboa at: Empresa Panama, Calle 50 & 59.

Panama has an excellent road network which is easy to navigate in your car hire vehicle. The Panama-Colon Road offers access to the province of Colon. A two-hour journey across this fertile region will take in both the waves of the Pacific and the calm turquoise waters of the Atlantic.

David City can be reached within an hour from Empresa Panama. This charming market town is the capital of Chiriqui as well as Panama's third largest city. The picturesque, alpine village of Boquete is just 35km from David City. Its cooler temperatures provide a welcome break from the heat of the lowlands. Volcan Baru, located just 9km from the village centre, is a favourite with climbers. Set in a 35,250-acre national park, it makes an ideal day trip.

While Chitre and the Azuero peninsula are a longer drive at 3.5 hours in your car hire, their rugged beauty is worth it. This is one of Panama's least developed regions, so features many untamed and virtually untouched beaches. The area is popular with those who love bird watching and snorkelling. Nearby Cerro Hoya National Park is home to over 95 species of birds including the rare scarlet macaw. Monkeys and deer also inhabit this beautiful parkland.

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?

This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you.

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).

When will I get a confirmation of my booking?

Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours).
