"Avis Argentina was established to meet the car rental needs of residents and international travelers, and today, it continues to be a trusted brand for each, whether they are traveling for business or leisure," said Patric Siniscalchi, president, Latin American/Asia-Pacific, Avis Budget Group. "We appreciate Avis Argentina's hard work and dedication to putting the customer first over the last two decades and look forward to celebrating future milestones."

Avis Argentina serves customers at approximately 30 airports and at several metropolitan locations, including Buenos Aires, Bariloche, Cordoba, Iguazu, Mar del Plata, Mendoza, Salta, Tucuman and Ushuaia. Locations offer business and leisure travelers a variety of late model vehicles such as Chevrolet, Ford, Renault, Toyota and Volkswagen, says Avis.

"We look forward to the next two decades of serving our customers with the best quality vehicles and service."
