FAQ
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for a rental car should preferably be made by credit card. It is possible to pay by debit card, however at the rental counter you will need a credit card issued to the main driver in order to secure the deposit for your rental car.
Who is allowed to drive the rental car and what are the conditions?
A rental car can be driven by a main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. The main and additional drivers are to present a valid driving license, which they have been in possession of for at least one year (please refer to the rental conditions), and a valid identity card/passport. Additionally, the main driver is to present a valid credit card issued in their name.
Do I have to pick up and return the car at any time? What happens if I am late for pick-up?
We recommend that you pick up the car at the agreed time as the availability of the car cannot be guaranteed in case of a delay. As a rule, local suppliers keep vehicles available up to 30 or 60 minutes after the agreed time. If a delay is inevitable, please contact the rental agency (you will find their contact details on the voucher).
What documents are required to pick up the vehicle?
When picking up the vehicle, the main driver is to present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driving's license and their valid credit card.

General Information

Founded by Spanish governor Pedro Arias de Avila in 1519, Panama City quickly rose in importance as a center of government and church authority. This progression, however, did not last very long. In 1671, the city was ransacked and burnt to the ground by pirates. The city was rebuilt three years later eight kilometers to the southwest. The new location made it more secure from outside attacks, but the city failed initially to regain its former glory. In the 1850's, with the completion of the Panama Railroad, the city saw an increase in population and economic clout, mainly because of gold seekers who were coming through on their way to California. After gaining independence in 1903, Panama City was established as the capital city of the new nation, with the help of foreign aid, mainly from the United States, Panama began to develop its infrastructure, with the pivotal project being the Panama Canal. Despite several setbacks, including the U.S. government-backed ousting of Dictator Manuel Noriega, Panama City has emerged as the leading city in Central America, both in terms of economic power and social progressiveness. As of 1999, the United States has relinquished control of the canal to the Panamanian government, and has closed its military bases in the country. This has given Panama an unprecedented amount of sovereignty, and has attracted a great deal of foreign investment.

Take advantage of your car rental Panama City

A car rental Panama City will allow you to explore the many sights and sounds of this vibrant city at your own leisure. Start your journey in the old city center, Casco Viejo, considered the most picturesque district in the city, boasts a large array of important buildings and grand museums. Here you will find the Plaza Cathedral, also known as the Plaza de la Independencia. It is here that the proclamations of independence from both Spain and Colombia were issued. The Cathedral, constructed between 1688 and 1796, is an imposing building made out of stones and three of the bells from the destroyed cathedral of Panamá Viejo. If you wish to gain a panoramic view of the city and of ships awaiting passage through the canal, you can walk along the Paseo Las Bóvedas, which runs along the top of the old city’s defensive wall. Along Panam City Beach, you will find a slew of fabulous eateries, from casual beach side cafes to gourmet bistros and five-star restaurants serving traditional and international delicacies.

Adventurers in search for a more rustic Panamanian experience can take their rental car to the mountain town of Boquete. This idyllic town is famous for its cool climate and pristine natural setting. Avid adventurers will be smitten by the impressive hiking, trekking, rafting, and nature tours available in the region. The Volcán Barú National Park lies close by, and is a favorite spot for trekking and hiking. At 3,474 meters above sea level, the imposing mountain is the largest in Panama, and is home to over 250 species of birds, as well as all five species of big cats. Within the park you will find habitats ranging from humid montane forests to montane forests.
