No cars available despite having reservationPros:Nothing absolutely nothingCons:I showed up at the counter. I presented my confirmation number. The employee told me that there were no cars available for rental. She said she was all sold out. I reminded her that I had a reservation and that I had made that reservation several weeks prior. She said that a reservation does not guarantee a vehicle. I was always under the impression that if I have a reservation that guaranteed me a vehicle. My experience with Payless has been absolutely awful. I will never rent from Payless ever again. And I will tell all of my friends and colleagues about my very, very, very negative experience with Payless. What is the point of making reservation, if having reservation does not guarantee you a vehicle?Reviewed 1 Jun 2016

Best value, No frills mostly simple and adequate cPros:Newer car, although i was second in line it took 15+ min before i could be assisted which was minor compared to my 7 hour flight delay and lost bag ( see AA for that review). Car was clean and seemed to be an upgrade from what i originally reserved (hyundai accent < kia sol IMHO). however, when i was presented the bill, the employee nearly charged me the $75 surcharge for customers under 25 although I caught the error before signing the contract and forking over the money. She quickly printed me a new contract. Despite her mistake that would have cost my millenial self dearly (i am 28), she was a very pleasant person. When renting from hertz i was able to complete my return in the garage immediately upon dropping off the car. However, although i rented from payless, they shared facilities with avis which may have complicated the return process and forced me to return downstairs into the lobby where i needed to complete my return. Not big deal as i wasnt in a hurry but somewhat an inconvenience. At least the Memphis airport car rental lobby was very clean including spotless bReviewed 19 Jul 2016

Horrible experiencePros:NothingCons:Took over an hour to receive the car seat. Car ended up having a bent axel because rear tire had extreme uneven wear. Customer service is pretty much nonexistent. They tell you to call the place where you rented it from, but they never picked up(over 2hours) and the mailbox was full. Had to switch out cars and it was a really big pain. I was in another city but to even get it approved was extremely hard. Bad experience. The deposit is as much as your rental cost, which is crazy as most places just charge $50 for deposit then bill you at the end. They set a pending charge of double my rental cost.Reviewed 29 Nov 2015

Felt a bit swindledPros:The car was nice, though the blind spots on the KIA Sportage are kind of major.Cons:The gas tank was only three quarters full and I was told it was full. I wanted to return to airport or call but my wife did not want me to waste time on a short trip. The woman at the desk was nice, but maybe overly nice. She told me that I reserved an economy car when I know I reserved a mini SUV. She then tried to sell me an upgrade to a mini SUV and said she would give me a deal on a 2017 Hyundai, or $5 per day. I agreed to it because I am a very big man and did not want to be stuck in an economy car. I later looked at the bill and it was $8 per day plus fees and it was a KIA Sportage not a Hyundai. The Kia also smelled a bit like smoke. So no this rental was not perfect and i felt a bit swindled.Reviewed 24 Oct 2016

Low tire pressure, car not cleanPros:The staff were very responsive when I told them of the issuesCons:I had to roam around the lot to find the car, there was writing in wax crayon on one of the windows, saying "needs to be cleaned". And there was multiple "low tire pressure" alarms, triggering the check engine light. Once I told the staff about the alarms, they took the car and added pressure to the low tires, which fixed the alarms. But it held me up by ~20 minutes and it could have been remedied before I ever picked up the keys.Reviewed 16 Oct 2016
