ACRISS Car Classification Code

The ACRISS Car Classification Code developed and maintained by ACRISS (the Association of Car Rental Industry Systems Standards) and is designed to enable customers and travel professionals to make an informed choice when booking car rental in Europe, Middle East and Africa. ACRISS Members include Avis, Budget, Alamo, Europcar, Hertz, Sixt and National. Others also subscribe to the codes e.g. Atlas Choice and ASAP Ventures. Many other Car Rental companies also utilise this car coding standard.
