"Votes were cast by more than 180,000 travel professionals around the world and Avis has proven to be the best of the best. The recognition is a testament to the hard work of the management team and staff at Avis who, despite challenges which have impacted the travel and tourism industry over the past 12 months, continued to deliver above and beyond the call of duty," said Graham Cooke, president and founder of the World Travel Awards.
