Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Panama City National car rental at a great price?
We strive to get you the lowest price, no matter when you reserve your car. But getting ahead of your trip can help you save even more. Be sure to keep the car under one driver's name and go over the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
What should I have with me when I get my vehicle in Panama City?
You'll need to present your driver's license and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Panama City?
Most suppliers in Panama City require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. Some rentals, especially higher category vehicles (luxury, SUVs, etc.), may have an added fee if you are under 25. Make sure to check National's policy to determine what the total cost is for you.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Panama City?
That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Panama City. Compact or economy cars are good for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a dash of luxury on their Panama City trip can choose a higher-end category like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Does the United States require car insurance?
You are required to have insurance before you rent a car from National in the United States. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, give some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, you may not be covered 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 book Collision Damage Coverage with CarRentals.com at checkout.
Does National require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
National does require a deposit when you book your rental car. National will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your car for your trip to Panama City. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the model and make of the vehicle.
Do I have to return my National rental with a full tank?
We suggest a full to full policy. You should get your car with full tank, and you should return it with a full tank. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a filling station before you return the car to National. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Panama City's small-town atmosphere definitely is charming, but you may want to take to the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Panama City. If you are wanting to add some adventure to your Panama City trip, you can also drive to Shipwreck Island and spend an evening riding the park's attractions.
Does Panama City National offer one-way car rentals?
National offers one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your vehicle at another National. However, there may be an additional charge when you opt for one-way.
