Avis began in 1946 when Warren Avis opened his first car rental location - "Avis Airlines Rent A Car Systems" at Willow Run Airport, Detroit - the first car rental operation at an airport location. In 1965, Avis formally expanded into the international arena by founding the Europe, Africa and Middle East division (Avis Europe) and achieved leadership in this market just 8 years later in 1973 - a position which Avis has retained ever since.
The essence of Avis's success has been a singular vision of building the best and fastest growing company, through continuous investment in its network, leading technology and, most importantly, its people.
