Avis Budget Group, Inc. is the American parent company of Avis Car Rental, Budget Car Rental, Budget Truck Rental, Payless Car Rental, Apex Car Rentals, Maggiore Group and Zipcar. The company's headquarters are located in Parsippany-Troy Hills, New Jersey, United States.

As of 2011, Avis Budget is the leading general-use vehicle rental company in North America, Australia and New Zealand.

Following the decision to dissolve the Cendant company name and split into four separate companies, the vehicle rental division of Cendant became Avis Budget Group in 2006. At the end of 2008, Avis Budget became the first vehicle rental company to begin deployment RFID transponders in their fleet using a product from TransCore which includes an active RFID tag that can work with nearly all electronic toll collections systems in the United States, including E-ZPass in the Northeast, TxTag (Texas) and SunPass (Florida).

On September 5, 2012, Avis Budget Group acquired Apex Car Rentals of New Zealand.

On 14 March 2013 Avis Budget Group purchased Zipcar for about US$500 million in cash. Zipcar now operates as a subsidiary of Avis Budget Group. Scott Griffith, who had run the company for the previous 10 years, resigned the day after the acquisition closed, and passed the reins to a new company President, Mark Norman.

On April 9, 2015, Avis Budget Group announced it had completed the acquisition of Maggiore Group, Italy's fourth-largest vehicle rental company.

Avis is rated a 2 star rental company ranked 7th overall on Google Review customer satisfication, just behind Enterprise #1, Alamo #2 and 5 other companies. The CEO admits they need to focus more on retaining customers as many have been switching.

In the Seth MacFarlane's TV series The Orville, Avis is referenced as a Car Rental Company as well as the God of an alien species called The Krill.
