Avis Wins Top Honors at 2013 World Travel Awards

Avis Car Rental was recently honored as "World's Leading Car Hire" and its website, Avis.com, was recognized as "World's Leading Car Rental Company Website" at the 2013 World Travel Awards Grand Final.

The World Travel Awards celebrates companies and brands that are pushing the boundaries of industry excellence in products and services.

"It continues to be a great source of pride that our operations are recognized for their high standards of quality and excellence," said Ronald L. Nelson, chairman and chief executive officer of Avis Budget Group. "This is wonderful recognition which reflects the significant emphasis we've made on improving our systems, our products and our people to be more customer-centric, and all Avis employees around the world can take pride in this honor."

Avis has been recognized by the World Travel Awards, with honors stretching back as far back as 1997 — when Avis was named "World's Leading Business Car Rental Company."

The World Travel Awards were launched in 1993 to acknowledge and recognize excellence in the global travel and tourism industry.
