Avis Australia Named Best Car/Campervan Rental Operator

Avis Car Rental was recognized as Best Car/Campervan Rental Operator by the Australian Federation of Travel Agents (AFTA) at its annual awards event celebrating "the best of the best" in the Australian travel industry.

George Proos, Avis Australia senior VP and managing director, accepted the AFTA award and thanked the industry for awarding the contributions of all Avis Australia staff toward this honor.

"This award recognizes the assistance and level of service that Avis provides to the industry and customers alike at every contact point throughout the country, including our sales team, call centre and rental location team members," Proos said. "Receiving this award, as well as achieving the number one ranking from Canstar, is a testimony to the 'We try harder' spirit that underpins everything we do at Avis."

This recognition follows Avis Australia’s achievement of the top ranking in the recent Canstar Blue consumer awards, in which Avis Australia earned a five-star rating in six of the seven categories.
