NU 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 will want your own ride to check out all there is to do around the area. Buses or metro, while affordable, may not take you to exactly where you need to go. Ride hailing can be convenient, but you may be surprised by how many areas they don't serve. Plus, if you plan to go all over Panama City and the surrounding areas, the cost can add up.
If you want convenience at an affordable price, then you've found the perfect spot. We work with many of the finest rental car companies in the industry. NÜ Car Rentals offers great rates and value to every hire reservation. NÜ Car Rentals has locations throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean, Europe, The Middle East, Africa and New Zealand.
Frequently asked questions
How do I get a Panama City NU car rental at a great price?
We always strives to get you the best price. But, you can try to do a couple things to keep your next booking affordable:

Most suppliers, like NU, require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. Please note, you may find that there is an additional fee if you are under 25 or for higher category vehicles in particular. Go through NU's to find what the exact price will be before you book your rental

Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Panama?
Many countries require driver's insurance. You might be able to buy additional insurance through NU for your trip, if you think your insurance won't cover you while traveling through Panama. Although many major card issuers, like Visa or Discover, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, you may not be covered if you reserve a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check NU's policy before you decide.
Does NU require a deposit at the time of booking my rental car?
NU, like several other rental agencies, requires a deposit upon reservation. The deposit can vary greatly based on the size of the car. Furthermore, make sure you have enough funds on your credit card to make the deposit.
Do I have to fill up the tank before I take my car back to NU?
NU and most other suppliers provide you a full to full tank policy. We encourage returning it with a full tank of gas. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a gas station before you return the car to NU. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles in Panama City?
Most suppliers will offer unlimited miles, but you need to ensure it's part of your bundle that you are purchasing. It's helpful to figure out how many miles you will be driving in and around Panama City. You don't want to be surprised with any additional fees if you don't have unlimited miles, so make sure you go through the company's policy. You may need unlimited miles if you're thinking of taking some road trips to discover what else Panama has to offer, or even Panama.
