Car rental champions, Vamos and Poas, partner to improve travel service options in Costa Rica for their growing customer base.
Vamos & Poas Partnership
Partners: Alex (Poas) & George (Vamos)

( — May 31, 2016) Alajuela, Alajuela — Poas Rent a Car and Vamos Rent-A-Car entered into a business relationship during the past December’s High Season in Costa Rica.  Realizing the shared interests of the companies, an agreement was made for Poas to acquire the Vamos brand.

“We believe deeply in and share all of the Vamos core values and respect their additions to the industry,” says Alex Villalobos, marketing manager for Poas, and new operations manager of Vamos.  “We’ll continue the Vamos tradition of exceptional customer service, complimentary perks, and transparent pricing, while at the same time expanding and strengthening Poas’ protocols.”

Vamos has long held the position of the most recommended car rental agency in Costa Rica on the popular travel forum, Trip Advisor, but is always looking for ways to grow and improve.

One quarter of the rental vehicles were recently upgraded to 2016 models.  This updated fleet and more office accessibility (6:00 AM – 10:00 PM, seven days a week year round) will combine in elevating Vamos’ measure of service.

Furthering navigational technology, Vamos is once again leading the way with a pilot program of 30 new smartphones, each using the popular app Waze as a replacement for the bulkier and less efficient GPS units.

Poas Rent a Car, established in 1981, began much like Vamos — an independent Costa Rican company wanting to raise the bar for car rental in the country by providing a local, personalized service to an industry dominated by global franchises.  Poas brings their affiliation to such large companies as Banco de Costa Rica, Chiquita, Grupo Roble and more to the collective table.

Poas and Vamos will work as sister companies, complimenting each other, while retaining their individual market niches, to better serve national and international clients alike.
