SINGAPORE, July 30, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — Avis Car Rental was selected as Best Car/Campervan Rental Operator by the Australian Federation of Travel Agents (AFTA) at AFTA’s recent annual awards event celebrating “the best of the best” in the Australian travel industry.
This recognition closely follows the Company’s achievement of the top ranking in the recent Canstar Blue consumer awards, where Avis Australia earned a five-star rating in six of the seven categories.

George Proos, Senior Vice President & Managing Director Avis Australia, accepted the AFTA award and thanked the industry for recognising the contributions of all Avis Australia staff toward this honour.

“This award recognises the assistance and level of service that Avis provides to the industry and customers alike at every contact point throughout the country, including our sales team, call centre and rental location team members,” said Mr. Proos. “Receiving this award, as well as achieving the number one ranking from Canstar, is a testimony to the ‘We try harder’ spirit that underpins everything we do at Avis.”

This year also marks the 55th year since AFTA was established and, during the awards ceremony, Avis was also honoured for being a founding member and only one of two members, along with Kempsey Travel, a retail travel agent, as continual members of AFTA for its entire 55 years. A plaque was presented to Mr. Proos to mark this achievement.
