Terms and Conditions – Panamá

 Collision Damage Waiver – Theft Protection (CDW-TP) is not insurance. The rental location requires purchase of CDW-TP1 to rent a vehicle, unless you present written proof that your credit card provides collision and theft protection in Panama, or you purchase the Alamo Protection Package (APP), which includes CDW-TP1.

The rental company will not accept personal insurance or insurance sold by third parties as a substitute for purchasing CDW-TP1. If you purchase CDW-TP1, the rental company contractually waives your responsibility for the cost of damage to, loss or theft of the vehicle, after the deductible, during the rental period in Panama unless you invalidate the coverage as provided in the rental agreement. A deductible of up to $2,500 USD applies, depending on car class.
