Transfer in Panama
A small-scale state, Panama in Central America is most famous for its shipping canal that connects two oceans. You can see this engineering wonder at Miraflores Locks, situated not far from the capital, Panama City. There are several bridges across the canal near the city of Balboa. The oldest of them is ‘The Bridge of the Americas’. There are also some resorts in this country, one of the most popular being San-Carlos, which is particularly loved by surfers.
In Panama, you can call a taxi by phone as well as through mobile apps or by hailing one in the street. If you've chosen the last option, be aware that if taxis are passing by without stopping, you may be at a point where this is not allowed. Taximeters were only introduced in Panama in 2016, so many drivers still try to negotiate the price with the client. Don’t let taxi drivers push you around as they might overcharge you. Also be aware that there is a price increase at night and on holidays. When calling a taxi by phone, you usually pay an additional fee. To order a taxi from the hotel is far more expensive than hailing one in the street. Drivers of taxi in Panama are permitted to pick up extra travelers in their cabs. In this case, the first client receives a discount. It is also worth noting that drivers may not know the official names of some streets, but only the popular ones; it’s therefore often better to mention some landmark or big hotel as a guide.
It’s obviously very difficult to use taxis in Panama without knowing the language. By booking your private Kiwitaxi transfer in Panama, you won’t face translation difficulties and will certainly never have to share your journey with strangers. You will just have to choose the car class and select the pick-up time and location. Kiwitaxi will do everything else for you. We organize your meeting with the driver at the airport in Panama, at the entrance to the hotel or any other place you choose, and the driver chooses the best route for you. You can make your booking on the English language site of the company, and you can always ask for assistance from the English language support service.
On the site, you can see the transfer cost clearly next to the car class description and the prices always stay fixed. To avoid worrying about your return journey whilst traveling, you can book your return transfer at the same time.
