About Avis Budget Group

Avis Budget Group operates two of the most recognized brands in the global vehicle rental industry through Avis Rent A Car System, LLC (Avis), Budget Rent A Car System, Inc. and Budget Truck Rental (Budget). Avis is a leading supplier to the premium commercial and leisure segments of the travel industry, and Budget is a leading supplier to price-conscious car rental segments. We believe we are the largest general-use vehicle rental operator in each of North America, Australia, New Zealand and certain other regions we serve, based on total revenue. Avis Budget Group maintains the leading share of airport car rental revenue, and we operate the second largest consumer truck rental business in the United States.

We generate significant benefits from operating two distinctive brands targeting different market segments but share the same fleet, maintenance facilities, systems, technology and administrative infrastructure.

Our operations have an extended global reach that includes approximately 6,600 car and truck rental locations in North America, Australia, New Zealand, Latin America and the Caribbean. On average, our rental fleet totaled more than 400,000 vehicles, and we completed more than 25 million vehicle rental transactions worldwide in 2005. We derive approximately 79% of our nearly $4.8 billion in car rental revenue from on-airport locations. We derive approximately 21% of our car rental revenue from off-airport locations, which we refer to as the local market segment, in which we have been significantly expanding our presence. We rent our fleet of approximately 30,000 Budget trucks from approximately 2,400 dealer operated, 220 company operated and 100 franchisee operated locations throughout the continental United States. We also license the use of the Avis and Budget trademarks in areas in which Avis Budget Group does not operate. The Avis and Budget vehicle rental systems in Europe, Africa, the Middle East and parts of Asia are operated at approximately 3,800 locations by subsidiaries of an independent third party primarily under royalty-free trademark license agreements.

Our industry leadership and proud heritage have as a foundation our firm commitment to our Company Mission, Vision and Core Values. For more information about our company, please visit www.avisbudgetgroup.com.
