More than 70 years of tradition of superior service
How it all began
It was written in 1946 when former military pilot Warren Avis founded the first car rental company. The first rental was at Willow Run Airport near Detroit, and in 1953, it was opened for the first time at the old continent. The year 1963 became a debut for one of the most popular advertising campaigns of all time, “We Try Harder”. In the year 1972, real-time rental arrives, AVIS as the first car rental company begins using the Wizard booking software system. 20 years after the opening of the first European representation, AVIS has become a leasing leader in Europe, Africa and the Middle East, and today operates in 172 countries and offers more than 500,000 vehicles.
The story of AVIS in Slovakia is very similar to the American one. At the beginning, there was great courage, effort to push, and constant incendiary to build a World Wide Worldwide rental service. Our story begins in 1995. We had 45 older vehicles in a small local car rental. At that time, only two international companies operated in Slovakia. After getting the AVIS brand in an international tender, we started working on our ranking under the largest car rental. It was not easy, however, the first years were very difficult. We gradually updated the fleet of vehicles and strengthened the position (still not very well-known) of AVIS brand in the Slovak market.
In 1998, we became the largest car rental in the country and in 2000 our fleet exceeded 100 cars.
Our basic rule from the beginning was to rent the latest car news. We have become a car rental for all, available for all types of customers.
The AVIS Prestige brand, which operates under Effective CarService s.r.o., was born in Slovakia on May 1, 2017. Effective CarService s.r.o began initially as a smaller Slovak company with few cars. It has always begun, but thanks to our enthusiasm for cars, endurance, individual customer approach, and constantly improving service, we have been able to obtain and maintain a number of significant clients, whose full confidence we still have in our hands thanks to our exclusive services. Currently, our services are used under the AVIS Prestige brand, where we can boast a strong fleet of 80 vehicles.
