What's more, we take on 150 temporary people over the summer and holiday peak season to help us deal with demand.
Auckland is the home of our head office, which supports the 22 Avis Budget rental stores located in cities and towns throughout the country. It houses our teams for National Sales and Marketing, HR and L&D, Fleet and Strategy and Reservations. It's also where our Business Support Centre is based.
