National Car Rentals in Panama City: What you need to know

Panama City is just one of many neighborhoods in Panama that are worth exploring, and, you'll need your own vehicle to check out all there is to do here. Buses or metro, while inexpensive, may not get you close to your destination. Ridesharing, like Uber or Lyft, is convenient, but you may be surprised by which areas don't have service. Additionally, if you plan to go all over Panama City and the surrounding areas, the cost can add up.

If you want the convenience to go where you need to for a good rate, then you have found the best place. Founded by twenty-four independent rental car agents in 1947, National has grown from 60 locations in the U.S. to over 2,000 locations worldwide. National offers everything SUVs to compact, allowing you to choose the ideal vehicle for your upcoming holiday.

Frequently asked questions about renting a car

How do I find the best prices on a Panama City National car rental?

You're on your way to finding the best rate on your car rental with CarRentals.com. Nevertheless, there are ways to get an even cheaper price on your upcoming rental:

  • Read the mileage policy to avoid any surprises
  • Reserve your rental car as far ahead of time as possible
  • Avoid airport pick-ups and drop-offs if possible; they commonly are more expensive
  • Compare daily and weekly rates; you might save more if you rent the car for longer

A little knowledge can go a long way to increase your savings.

Do I need to bring anything special when I get my rental car in Panama City?

You'll need to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.

What is the minimum age to rent a car in Panama City?

National's minimum age to rent a car is 21. Take time to read through National's policy, as there could be limitations if you are under 25 or for higher category rentals in particular.

What kind of National rental car should I get for my trip?

That depends on your needs and what you'll be doing when you visit Panama City. If you are having difficulty choosing, make sure to look over our chart below. We've compared the most popular categories for you:

Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Panama?

When cruising through Panama City or the rest of country, you'll need insurance. National requires that you show proof of insurance before you rent a car. Many countries require driver's insurance. You may be able to purchase temporary coverage with National.

Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, offer some insurance, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you get a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check National's policy before you decide.

Do I need to put down a deposit on my National car rental?

National, like many other rental car agencies, requires a deposit when you make your reservation. The deposit can vary greatly depending on which vehicle you book. Furthermore, be sure you have enough on your credit card to make a deposit.

Do I have to fill up the tank before I take my car back to National?

We recommend a full to full policy. You should get your vehicle with a full tank, and you will want to return it topped off. To avoid any added expenses, find a gas station before returning the rental car to National.

Can I add unlimited mileage when renting a car in Panama City?

Most suppliers offer unlimited miles, but you need to ensure it is part of the package. It's helpful to figure out how much driving you will be doing on your trip to Panama City. You don't want to be hit with any surprise overages if you don't have unlimited miles, so make sure you understand the company's policy. You may want unlimited miles if you're planning to explore all that is in Panama.
