Budget Car Rental has named Budget Costa Rica as Licensee of the Year for Latin America and the Caribbean. Budget has operated in Costa Rica since 1978.
Budget Costa Rica operates 12 facilities across the country, serving customers at major airport locations — such as Juan Santa María International Airport and Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport — and at convenient metropolitan locations like Alajuela, Liberia, San Jose, Tamarindo and Tambor.
"Over the past year, Budget Costa Rica has helped us deliver against our strategic plan," said Joe Ferraro, president, the Americas, Avis Budget Group. "Our licensee has expanded its footprint across the country, demonstrated an outstanding increase in revenue and put the customer first by implementing a rapid return process and launching mobile Wi-Fi to meet the need of those who want to stay connected. We commend them for a job well-done and are proud to recognize Budget Costa Rica as Licensee of the Year."
Budget Costa Rica is operated by an independently-owned licensee of Avis Budget Group. Licensees, such as Budget Costa Rica, have the right to operate under the Budget brand in specified territories and have obligations to uphold Budget's brand standards, according to the company.
"Costa Rica is one of the busiest travel destinations in Latin America," said Paulo Vargas, general manager, Budget Costa Rica. "We are proud to receive this award for our hard work in providing customers with quality products and excellent customer service."
