The analysis of the sector by Raul Carrillo on laestrella.com.pa shows that operators continue to be optimistic in 2009, despite the global crisis: "We want to change the perception that we have to be the most expensive car rental in the country, said the manager of Hertz Panama, Gloria Elisa Vallarino. And for that, Hertz has flete of cars that is 90% Nissan and 10% BMW, for the more demanding clients."
The sustained growth of the Panamanian economy is boosting luxury car consumption, championed by high-end cars.
In Costa Rica, the business sector expected a greater drop in the level of reservations for this past Easter.
Alamo and Hertz experienced 20% and 6% growth respectively in car rentals.
