If you want to see everything Panama City has to offer, there is no better way to do so from behind the wheel of a rental car from Budget. Don't spend time waiting for the bus or hailing taxis to go to the sights. When you have access to your own ride, you can drive wherever you want to go, whenever you want. Make your upcoming vacation to Florida even more enjoyable with a Budget car rental.
Panama City is a perfect town when you desire a break from busyness of a big city. Guests come to take advantage of Panama City's local attractions. And you'll have a pleasant time whatever you do thanks to its small-town ambiance. No matter what you choose to do first, you'll want to check out as much of Panama City as you can during your vacation. If you need to mix it up from Panama City's easy-going vibes, then jump behind the wheel of your Budget rental car and see what else is out there.
We work with many of the most dependable rental car businesses. Open for business during Los Angeles in 1959, Budget always attempts to provide the best prices for customers. With a name like Budget, you know they'll try to get you the lowest price.
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest price, no matter when you book. However, getting your car ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Be sure to check the mileage policy and keeping it to one driver will reduce your expense.
Be sure to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
Budget's minimum age to rent a car in Panama City is 21. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an additional fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check Budget's policies to know what the total cost is for you.
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what activities you want to do in Panama City. Compact or economy automobiles are good for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a sedan or SUV is going to have more room for luggage and provide a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a dash of extravagance on their Panama City trip can choose the premium category for a car like a Cadillac or Audi or similar.
You are required to have insurance before you rent in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa and MasterCard, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Budget requires a deposit when you reserve your rental car. Budget will block the deposit on your credit once you book your rental for your trip. Please be aware that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the model and make of the rental.
We encourage a full tank policy. You receive the vehicle with full tank, and you should bring it back it filled up. If you want to keep your expenses lower, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring the car back to Budget.
Panama City's small-town atmosphere definitely is charming, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Panama City. If you are wishing to add some adventure to your Panama City trip, you can also go to Shipwreck Island and spend a day riding the park's attractions.
Budget usually offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your vehicle at another location. However, there is typically an additional charge when you choose one-way.
Once you've explored the must-see sights in Panama City, having access to a ride will allow you to see what else Florida offers. When you're ready to discover more of Florida, you can go wherever you want to, without waiting for your ride to pick you up or having to be committed to a bus schedule.
