Avis budget group acquires turiscar

Avis Budget Group, Inc. comes to ITB Berlin sporting a new shop front in Western Europe.

Late in 2018, the group acquired Turiscar Group, the leading organisation in Portugal with two distinct brands: Turiscar, a well-respected rental provider primarily in the corporate market, including light commercial vehicles; and a sister brand, Turisprime, focused on leisure and tourism business. The acquisition adds approximately 3,000 vehicles to Avis Budget Group’s network in Portugal and is a key step in strengthening its commitment to the local market.

Mark Servodidio, President, International, Avis Budget Group commented: “Following the recent acquisitions of Morini in Italy and ACL in the UK, this acquisition marks another step in our international expansion strategy and demonstrates the pace and momentum in the region and we look forward to continuing this progress”.
