Visitors will find all major international car rental firms represented in Panama. Visitors are permitted to drive with a foreign driver’s licence for one month dating from their day of arrival. After that they must go to the Transito Offices in Albrook with their passport and driving licence to obtain a driving permit, a fairly painless operation. The following is a list of national and international car rental companies operating in Panama.
Alamo’s fleet of vehicles consists of 4-door Toyota sedans ( Yaris, Corolla, Avensis) ranging from $39.95 to $64,95 per day. Multipurpose vehicles include Toyota Hi Ace 20 passenger minivan, Kia Carnival 8 passenger minivan, Toyota Rava 4×4, Toyota Land Cruiser Prado 4×4.
Arrendadora Economica’s car fleet includes Chevrolet, Hyundai and Toyota compact vehicles, Jaguar X type, Mercedes Benz, Audi and Lexus luxury cars, Mazda pick-ups, Toyota Hi Ace passenger vans and Rexton, Kia Carnival and Hyundai Tucson family vehicles.
Much of the Avis car fleet is comprised of Ford models although they also have Toyota and Nissan compacts and intermediates. Their luxury sedan is the Ford Crown Victoria. Ford SUV’s and minivans make up the rest of the fleet, with the addition of the Toyota Prado. It is possible to rent a GPS – a very useful piece of equipment in Panama City’s often confusing one-way systems.
