Transistmica Guide

The Transistmica Highway is one of Panama City's most important roads. It provides access to some of the country's most important areas from the capital. Before setting off to explore Panama's most beautiful, rugged terrain, car hire is strongly recommended as it will allow your party to travel independently in comfort. Car hire can be found in Panama City at Via Transistmica.

The two lane thoroughfare is best known as the Panama-Colon Road and provides fast access to the province of Colon. The province is bordered by the rugged Pacific coastline as well as the pristine sands of the Atlantic coast. While the Pacific has a rugged appeal and has many bird watching opportunities, the Atlantic coast is ideal for sunbathing and water pursuits, including snorkelling.

As a duty-free port, shopping in Panama is second to none. The Transistmica Highway takes in a number of shopping centres which include supermarkets and specialised stores. Many are open seven days a week from 9:00am to 8:00pm. In your car hire, you can visit malls on this route including: Centro Comercial, La Gran Estacion - San Miguelito, Centro Comercial Los Andes - Los Andes, Centro Comercia Mis Provincias - Colon.

Journeying through to Colon City will allow your party to take in and stop at a number of sites which offer stunning views. The Transistmica passes by the Chagres River, one of Panama's most important waterways. The Chargres National Park is located on the outskirts of Panama City and can be reached via the highway. The river and Lake Alajuela cater well for visitors with a number of activities including rafting, fishing and jet skiing.A number of Spanish colonial sites and indigenous villagers can be visited here. Boss Mountain, also known as Cerro Jefe, can be found in the Cerro Azul area.

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.
