- If you will be driving in the city for most of your trip, then compact cars will get you from A to B fast.

What are the Driving Licence Requirements?
To hire a car in Panama, both the driver and the person arranging the rental must have a current driving license. If your license is printed in any language other than the Roman alphabet, for example, Cyrillic, Arabic or Japanese, you'll also need to present a valid international driving license. When you pick up your car, please remember to also bring a passport and another form of ID.
Are There any Age Restrictions?
The minimum age for drivers in Panama is 21, for some classes of vehicle you will need to have held the license for a year, for others it's two years. You can check these requirements in the booking area of our website, where we have also created a menu showing models of car and the age requirements for each.
