Pros: The staff wasn't helpful and we asked for a refund before even renting the car.
Cons: The information on their website is inaccurate and misleading.
Pros: No car Available
Pros: Excelente la atención y servicio del personal
Cons: Cuando contraté el servicio indicaron q el carro o entregaban en David y estaba cerrado, tuvimos q trasladar os al aeropuerto
Pros: Sort of
Cons: Said Audi g4 was cheap Kia Rio not a great car!
safety hazard -- bald tires on rental car
Pros: Similar to Thrifty in U.S., but this was outweighed by lack of tread on rentail car tires.
Cons: Thrifty employee acted as though renting a car with almost no tread on its tires was normal.
Great car for a great price
Pros: Good, reliable car tgat easily fir 4 adults plus all their luggage (mist of us traveled light). Friendly service at pick up and drop off. The car was very clean when we picked it up.
Cons: Although the car was super cheap, the insurance was quite steep. Tge website didn’t mention anything about the cost of the insurance; we had expected extra costs for it, but not this much. It would be good if tge website were more transparent on the topic.
They still owe me a $300 refund! It's been 11 days.
Pros: Not much.
Cons: We ordered a Jeep Wrangler and were only offered a Suzuki Jimmy that could practically fit in the back seat of the Wrangler. They refused to drop the price, saying it was a comparable vehicle and a Wrangler was not available. We were also told that it is mandatory to get full insurance in the country of Panama, so the price immediately went from the quoted $78 to $350 for the week. Then we ended up getting a vehicle from my wife's family, so I returned the Jimmy after only 3 hours. I added fuel to it and was told I would still be charged for 1 full day, at just over $44. I was told they would refund the remaining $300 and as of today, 11 days after the rental, I still don't have my refund. I intend to seek legal action if I don't get my money back very soon.
Charged 10X's the cost quoated
Pros: Good vehicle, clean
Cons: Cost was 10X's the quote when booked online. FORCED to take extra insurance or would not let us rent
Cons: Getting held hostage over insurance that my CC already covers and having a letter from insurance company in English and Spanish that clarifies the issue being ignored. Be careful as u show up and are hit with uneccessary fees and are stuck
Overall very good except for one thing
Pros: Car was great, no issues.
Cons: Forced to purchase mandatory collision coverage or they would not let me have the car. Supposedly this is common in Panama. I believe I was covered with my credit card insurance. This raised the price a ton.
Cons: At registration, agent trying several times to put add=ons into the bill.
Otherwise, good car. Delivered clean and in good condition.
Worst car rental experience ever
Cons: After a 20 min line they just said to me that my reservation was automatically canceled because im local(panamanian) and online reservations are only for tourists. I had to looked for others car rental companies and thanks to Alamo Rent a car they save my weekend. So stupid to said or to even have a policy (that no one knows about it) that affects local people.
