Frequently asked questions
How do I find the best prices on a Panama City Thrifty car rental?
CarRentals.com strives to get you the best rates, whether you book. But reserving your car ahead of time can help keep spending low. Be sure to not add an additional driver and check the mileage policy to avoid any surprise fees.
What should I have with me when I pick up my car in Panama City?
Be sure to carry with you credit card, as well as your driver's license.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Panama City?
Thrifty's minimum age to rent a car in Panama City is 21. Make sure to review Thrifty's policy, as there may be added fees if you are under 25 in most cases or for higher category vehicles especially.
What kind of Thrifty rental car should I get for my trip to Panama City?
That depends on how many people you are traveling with and what you'll be doing when you visit Panama City. Compact or economy automobiles are great for short drives and are easier to park. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a SUV or mid-size vehicle will have more room and be a more comfortable ride. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Panama City getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
Does the United States require car insurance?
In the United States you do need to have insurance before you rent from Thrifty. Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Visa, offer some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check credit card issuer's policy before you decide. Additionally, as a U.S. citizen, you can book Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.
Do I need to pay a deposit when I book my Thrifty car rental?
Thrifty does require a deposit when you book your rental. Thrifty will block the deposit on your credit once you reserve your vehicle for your trip to Panama City. Please note that the deposit can vary greatly depending on the model and make of the rental.
Do I have to return my Thrifty rental with a full tank?
We recommend a full tank policy. You receive the car with the needle at "F". But, if you return the rental with less than the amount it was given to you, most companies will charge a premium, and sometimes up to triple the amount of current gas prices to refill it. If you want to save some money, it is best to fill up your tank before you bring it back to Thrifty. Stations near or around airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.
Why should I get unlimited miles?
Panama City's small-town atmosphere certainly has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Panama City. If you want to add some excitement to your Panama City trip, you can also drive to Shipwreck Island and spend an evening riding the park's attractions.
Does Thrifty offer one-way rentals in Panama City?
Thrifty typically offers one-way rentals. You may find it easier to drop off your rental at a different location. Don't forget there may be an additional charge when you choose one-way.
