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.

"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.
