Due to the coronavirus outbreak, we had a one-way rental, but had to cancel that to return it back to the original city. Received full credit, no questions asked.

The quote given to me by was about $120 for just over two weeks. It was not made clear that I required liability insurance in Panama, so I chose to not take it. When attempting to pick up the vehicle in David, Panama, the Thrifty agents, in very poor English, insisted that Panamanian law required that I purchase liability insurance from them. That brought the price to about $900, which is an outrageous fee for only $10,000 coverage. At this point I declined the rental. If the insurance is mandatory, quotes should be given including that fee.

I reserved a car for the declared TOTAL price, including tax, of $52.17 for three days. Yet, the Thrifty agent insisted on mandatory insurance that more than TRIPPLED the price. This is an unethical business practice, and I will avoid using this service in future.
