Avis Retains Top Spot at Sunday Times Top Brands Survey Awards

Avis has, for the 16th consecutive year, won the car-rental category in the annual Sunday Times Top Brands Survey Awards.


The awards ceremony took place at a gala function held at The Venue at The Houghton Hotel on 19 September 2019.  


The prestigious Sunday Times Top Brands Survey Awards, now in its 21st year, is seen as a leading barometer of consumer brand sentiment in South Africa. This year, it introduced 12 new categories across the survey’s business and consumer sections.


Rainer Gottschick, Chief Executive of Avis southern Africa, said, “To see Avis successfully maintaining the number-one position in 2019 is inspiration for us to do even more for our customers. 


“This award is special, because our customers have shown their appreciation for the services we deliver. This award is as much theirs as it is ours. Avis thanks them for their continued support. They will always be the driving force behind the way we innovate to make the car-rental experience as seamless and enjoyable as possible.”


The Top Brands survey is conducted by Kantar TNS on behalf of the Sunday Times. The survey polled around 3 000 individuals aged 18 years and older in both metropolitan and non-metropolitan areas of South Africa to establish a ranking of Top Brands across 44 business and consumer categories.


The final index scores from the survey are consolidated to create the Top Brands rankings, which reflect brand standings in the minds of consumers as well as their strength in the marketplace.
