Who We Are

ACRISS – The Association of Car Rental Industry System Standards

ACRISS was formed in 1989 by Avis, Budget, Europcar and Hertz and reconstituted as an European Economic Interest Grouping (EEIG) in 1992. It’s role is based on various ongoing objectives.

Many of these are based on car rental industry standards including the Global Distributions Systems (GDS) used as an interface between Travel Agents and the Car Rental Companies.

The key role of Acriss is to develop standards to avoid misleading information when making a car rental booking online or via any electronic means.
