About Avis Budget Group

We help people connect in moments that matter. That may be a surprising description of a car rental company, but it is the true common purpose that inspires our 30,000 team members across the globe. In the travel and transportation industry, Avis Budget Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: CAR) is acknowledged and respected as a leading provider of vehicle rental services worldwide. In our hearts, though, our purpose is much more personal. Whether our customers want to share ideas, make memories or just tuck their children in bed after a long trip, our team is dedicated to helping people get where they want to be when they need to be there. Our efforts to help people connect are often heartwarming and caring, such as when our team members stay late or stay open in weather emergencies to help stranded travelers. However, we also use the latest technology to get cars to the right places at the right times, and our exciting new technological innovation Avis Now, gives customers control of their total rental experience from right their phones.
