Which vehicle class is right for me?
- Sedans and compact cars can be the right choice for those staying in mostly urban areas.
- SUVs are better suited to a range of roads, and for family travels we suggest a minivan or station wagon.
- Some of our rent a car in Panama branches even offer 12-15 seater passenger vans.
Renters and drivers must have a valid driving license. If your license contains letters from a non-Roman alphabet (i.e. Japanese, Arabic or Cyrillic), you must also present an international driving license. Upon collection a valid ID card or passport will also need to be presented.
