About Us

Global, Emerging Market Experts

Emerging markets by nature have higher population growth and higher per-capita GDP growth which makes for much faster, overall growth compared to slow-growing wealthy nations. Avis knows and understands the opportunity in emerging markets and operates leasing and fleet services in more than 90 global emerging markets through partner and licensee networks.

Avis partner networks are made up of national mobility firms with a proven track record of vehicle and infrastructure management in that market. They can help navigate any challenges in that nation around regulatory systems, contract mechanisms and “institutional voids” such as specialised intermediaries.

Avis has become a valuable part of many local and global customer’s supply and value chains by providing vehicle leasing and fleet management services and if you are considering expanding into an emerging market or already operate there, Avis is looking forward to building a long-lasting partnership with you.

Customer Understanding

Avis has always been known for its industry leading customer service, introducing the “We try harder®” campaign in 1963 and the tagline remains the company’s rallying cry today. Avis was named the Best Car Rental Company Worldwide and in Europe at the Business Traveller Awards 2020. Avis leasing markets understand how critical the customer relationship is to ensuring success for companies.

Avis leasing prides itself on building relationships that acknowledge the whole ecosystem of your firm. Avis will understand the company’s mission and values and how the different functions and structure fit into the big picture. They will understand what the key mobility objectives are and work to become an effective liaison, whilst being proactive, reliable, laying out clear plans of action and helping you to look into the future. What’s key is Avis’ ability to be collaborative, build trust and ensure you have an individualised service.

No matter the size of your requirements, whether they be for vehicle leasing or fleet management, Avis will investigate the best approach. Whether that is telephone based, an interdependent key account management approach or an implant-led focus, Avis will be sure it continues its “We try harder®” philosophy.

Technology Driven

Avis Fleet Solutions and Leasing is at the forefront of technology and leasing trends in many markets. As the world continues to evolve, so does Avis. Many of the latest models from the top manufacturers offer an alternative power train utilising hybrid, plug-in or pure electric vehicle technology and the Avis fleet is growing to represent changing customer demands.

Digitalisation continues to develop for leasing customers. The leasing value chain is being transformed by technology providing ‘contact-less’ pick up, online purchasing processes and payment solutions and instant services to customers. Many markets now offer e-signature solutions, intelligent damage solutions that offer 360-degree vehicle photography and app-based driver portals.

Telematics continue to change the industry too, transforming the fleet manager experience to provide efficiencies and security and on the driver side – accurate record keeping and damage recording. Telematics contain GPS devices that can track a vehicle in line with country data protection laws and can even disable the car’s engine for security purposes. From a risk point of view, they can help in lowering insurance premiums.

Vehicle solutions from 1 minute to 5 years. A Multimodal Experience

Avis represents a true total mobility firm and has always been at the heart of global corporate and business travel. Because Avis markets operate many different vehicle products, customer’s needs are catered for whatever their requirements. Unlike some other leasing firms, many Avis markets can offer several products and propositions through one owned, unified operation, ensuring transparent billing, efficient account management and most importantly, vehicles on demand.
