Top tips for renting a car in Panama City Beach

  • Nestled along the Florida panhandle, Panama City Beach is a long, narrow strip that stretches over 13 miles along the Gulf of Mexico. Having a vehicle during your visit gives you greater access to key areas, autonomy, and reduced commuting time. While the city does operate the Bay Town Trolley, the trolley has either limited or no service on holidays and doesn’t operate on Sundays or late at night. Panama City Beach car rentals ensure that you’re not restricted by public transportation and that you have the flexibility to travel on your schedule.
  • If you’ve secured a car rental in Panama City Beach, you can collect it at Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport (PFN). At the airport, there are several rental car companies present, including Alamo, Budget, Hertz, Enterprise, and Avis, to name a few. Desks for the rental companies can be found on the right and left of the terminal as you exit the building. The parking garage is directly outside across the West Bay Parkway.
  • When heeding navigation guidance in Panama City Beach from your rental car’s GPS, you’ll want to have a clear sense of the major expressways. Two primary roads run along the coast of Panama City Beach: Old State Route 30, which is also known as Front Beach Road, and US Highway 98, which is also known as the Panama City Beach Parkway and sometimes referred to as State Road 30-A. Both Front Beach Road and the Panama City Beach Parkway run east and west across the island area and both connect Panama City Beach with Panama City. Take care to yield to pedestrians along the Front Beach Road, as it’s an active crossing for beachgoers.
  • Since car rentals in Panama City Beach are a great way to access various parts of the beach-side town, rentals tend to be a popular option. There are only two major roadways and the streets can become quite congested, particularly around rush hours, between 6:30 am and 8:30 am, and 4 pm and 6pm. During peak vacation times, like holidays and Spring Break, if you’re visiting spots in Panama City Beach, you may want to aim to get to your destination earlier in the day, before the traffic gets too heavy and parking spots fill up. During off-peak seasons, like mid-autumn, you’ll find less crowding.
