Avis is one of the world's best known car rental brands. Since being formed in the USA in 1956, Avis (and its equally well known sister brand - "Budget") has grown to cover more than 5,500 locations spread across 165 countries.
Where some global brands will license their name to other operators, Avis prefer to operate their own locations especially throughout North America, Europe and Australasia. By operating the locations in this way, they are much better placed to manage the customer experience which, like all the major brands, is seen as the all-important measure.
Avis is most popular with frequent travellers who prefer to pay a little more for efficient service and convenient locations.
