KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Panama City

  • Cheap car rentals in Panama City offer enhanced convenience for travelers who want to move from the city center to Panama City Tocumen International Airport (PTY), which is the main airport in the city. You will take you about 30min to connect from the city center to the airport in light traffic, covering a distance of 13.7 miles. You can use Corredor Norte or Corredor Sur if you want to avoid being stuck in traffic. Having the knowledge of the time taken and distance covered to reach the airport from the city center helps in effective planning of one’s schedule.
  • Traveling to the nearby cities of Ancon, San Miguelito, and Balboa can be more convenient if you choose to use cheap car rentals in Panama City. It will take about 39min to drive your rental car from Panama City to Ancon, Panama, covering a distance of 17.5 miles. If you are driving your rental car from Panama City to San Miguelito, it will take about 23min to cover the 9.4 miles journey. The distance from Panama City to Balboa is 11.6 miles. In light traffic, it will take 28min to connect the two cities.
  • A number of travelers arrive in Panama City by train, with Panama City Mall being the main arrival station. This doubles up as the main train station in the city and is located a walkable distance from the city center. You can be able to rent your preferred car model from Avis, located at the Avis Sears Auto Center at Panama City Mall. Other Panama City car rentals, such as Enterprise, Thrifty, and Budget, have their offices within the city center. You can conveniently walk from the train station, Panama City Mall, to the city center and rent your car.
  • One of the main advantages to having a car during your time in Panama City is that it opens up the countryside for easy exploration. There are a number of spectacular spots that are just perfect as day trips from Panama City. Some of these spots include Cajones de Chame, which is 90 km (56 miles) away from the city, and Laguna de San Carlos, which is 110 km (68 miles) away.
  • If you’re flying in, you’ll probably want to pick up your rental car from the airport so you can start your vacation right away. If your flight is arriving at Tocumen International Airport, then you will find the rental car offices in the airport’s Arrivals Hall.
  • It is worth remembering that cell phone use is strictly forbidden when driving in Panama. This is important to remember because many tourists use their phones to navigate Panama City. So stay on the safe side of the law by having a passenger be the guide during your time in Panama City.
  • Rush hour doesn’t last overly long in Panama City, but nonetheless it is definitely worth avoiding. Generally, drivers can expect the morning rush hour to begin shortly after 7:00 a.m. and to last until 9:00 a.m. The afternoon rush hour begins around 4:00 p.m. and winds down at around 6:00 p.m. during the work week. Calle 50 and Via España are two roads worth avoiding during rush hour, as they both can become quite bogged down.

  • Off-airport rental car locations in Panama City are around 61% more expensive than airport locations on average

Insights shared by verified travelers who rented a car in Panama City 
Verified travelerJan 2024
I would tell them to hire a chauffeur with his own car and a good driving record. It’s cheaper at the end plus they don’t have to worry about the awful traffic there since the driver would be an expert at it and also responsible for his or hers own vehicle and insurance. Actually I’m thinking it would be a good business to start there.
FelipeJan 2024
I used Waze and it seemed to get me around fine. Had to be careful with traffic, people drive fast and they like to dart in and out sometimes pretty close but otherwise normal city driving
Verified travelerJan 2024
Avoid using toll roads, if possible as this will add to your final bill. Obey speed limits and respect other drivers and there should be no issues.
JAIROSep 2023
En panama se debe tener cuidado con el tráfico, es de mucho cuidado hay mucha imprudencia. Si se requiere Viajar hacia el oeste entre semana es mejor salir por lo menos con 1 hora de anticipación adicional porque hay mucho trancon por las obras
AlbertJul 2023
Defensive driving should be the first thing you do when you get on the road. The traffic is hectic and busy most of the time. Try NOT to be on the main roads between 3 pm and 7 pm, as this is the heaviest time of day for workers going home, all over the city.

Driving in Panama City is hectic and busy most of the time. Defensive driving should be at the top of your list as soon as you get on the road.

7.2 Good

Feb 2020

KAYAK

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).

Booked a Thrifty reservation for 6:00 pm pick up at the PAC airport in Panama City, Panama. HOWEVER all of the airport car rentals in that location close at 5:00 pm. NO where on any of my reservation information did it say that they would be closed. HOW can Kayak/ Thrifty even make and guarantee a reservation time when the location is closed. I also spoke to a representative twice to confirm the car size two days before my arrival. I had to take an Uber to the Thrifty location In Panama City and there- the customer service representatives were extremely helpful. I eventually did get a car (it was vacation week so the options were limited) Also the customer service agents at the office said that they were not surprised, that this happens often.

My only complaint is that the price I was originally quoted was $264.00 but the final cost ended up being $927.00. That is quite a difference!!

Cons:

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.

Pros:

Ease of access, in-terminal pick-up and drop-offli

Cons:

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.

Company is not clear about charges and even didn't want to give a printed receipt after we returned the car. Alleging within 30 min you would get by email. We had to insist because we were leaving the city without knowing final charge. When he finally printed the receipt there was 40 dollar difference from what he told us verbally.

Alamo as some others on their groups are nothing but thieves. They scam me from a luxury car to a cheap one claiming that AMEX didn’t cover insurance for the luxury car while holding in their hands a letter from them stating that I was covered. But still charged me the luxury car rate blaming on Kayak taking their share off the top first. In other words they pretty much said not to use Kayak at all. I wouldn’t recommend Alamo or any of their affiliates to a dog. I’m not the first one they’ve done this to.

The reservation was supposed to be a pick up from airport but the car was not there. I had to take taxi to the city and pick it up from another location. Staff at airport was rude. The vehicle had a broken trunk latch, I had to crawl through the back seats to open it from inside everytime, which was a pain in the a** with all the luggage.
