Avis Car Rental and its subsidiaries operate one of the world’s best-known car rental brands with approximately 5,500 locations in more than 165 countries. Avis has a long history of innovation in the car rental industry and is one of the world’s top brands for customer loyalty.
G&S Transport Corporation (“G&STC”) was established in April 1972 for the specific purpose of operating the Philippine license of Avis Rent A Car International. G&STC started operations in April 1972 with 6 cars and one station. Today it has a fleet of more than 450 vehicles and 17 stations throughout the country, and is also known by its trade style “Avis Philippines.”
Over the past 43 years of operations, Avis Philippines has operated in several segments of the car rental industry, including the airport transfer service, the car transfer segment (i.e., point-to-point pick-up and drop-off), the car-hire service (minimum of 2 hours rental), the chauffeur-driven rental market, and the self-driven car rental segment. The last of these is the more commonly known type of rental service throughout the developed world. However, in the Philippines, as in a few other rental markets, the chauffeur-driven service is traditionally more popular, because of difficult local driving conditions and the poor state of roads in these slower-growing economies.
