We are looking to rent a car in panama city on a Saturday afternoon next month. We are doing a partial transit of the Canal and want to pick up the car afterwards and head out to our rental near San Carlos. It was suggested for us to use Dollar Rental and to pick up the car at El Dorado. We will have it for 10 days, we got a medium size vehicle with a gps. The quote that we received with mandatory insurance is $430 and full insurance is adding another $15 per day.
I am planning to pay for this on my VISA which provides CDW. I'm going to bring that documentation and decline the full insurance.
This is my first time to Panama, and the car rental system there seems a bit dicey, so I wanted to see if this plan makes sense.
