ABOUT AVIS CANADA
Whether you don't own your own vehicle, or simply enjoy the reliability and convenience of a car rental for long trips, Avis Rent a Car System (or just Avis) is one of the many options available to you when looking to rent a vehicle. The American company has been known for its customer service and stress-free car rental experience that caters to its customers' individual needs.
Founded in 1946 by Warren Avis, the company initially operated out of an airport and was the first car rental business to cater specifically to travelers. Soon, the company opened more locations at several other airports across the US, and by 1953, Avis had franchises in Canada, Europe and Mexico. During the first years of business, Avis featured a fleet of exclusively GM vehicles. As the company grew, the lineup expanded to include other popular car brands, as well as a number of exotic and luxury vehicles.
In recent years, Avis has been named "leading car rental company in customer loyalty" by the Brand Keys® Customer Loyalty Engagement Index. With over 4,900 worldwide locations, Avis is definitely a recognizable brand, with plenty of satisfied, returning customers. There are quite a few car rental places, if you can't find what you are looking for at Avis.ca. You could check out Discount Car, Thrifty Rent-A-Car, Airport Rental Cars and others.
Avis makes securing your car rental an easy task through its Canadian website Avis.ca. The site has a user-friendly layout that places all the info you might need right at your fingertips. Reservations can be made with a few clicks right off the main page, and additional info can be found in the top navigation bar; find your nearest Avis location, see current deals and learn more about Avis' fleet.

Part of having great customer service is getting your customers great deals. Avis makes no secret of their promotions. Avis.ca has a section dedicated entirely to deals, where prospective renters an find great offers like "Pay now and save up to 30%" and "Save 10% on a monthly rental". Deals are usually limited time offers, so be sure to note the expiry date if you plan on taking advantage of the promo at a later point in time.
