Voted by travel professional worldwide, the award recognized Budget UAE's commitment to excellence. Budget scored above four other competitors that were nominated in the category.

Salim Damji, senior general manager at Budget Rent a Car UAE, and Paul Mitchell, regional director Middle East, Budget International, accepted the award.

"This award celebrates the successful implementation of our innovative strategies focused on putting the customer first," said Damji. "We are particularly thrilled to receive this recognition because it is based on votes of professionals from the global travel and tourism industry."

"We always take pride in keeping our finger on the pulse of customer preferences, as reflected in the recent addition of the new Chevrolet Trax to our fleet, as well as introducing the high-end Chevrolet Corvette and the Chevrolet Impala," added Damji.

The Middle East Gala Ceremony was the first regional round on the annual World Travel Awards Grand Tour — winners qualify for the Grand Final to be held later this year.
