Pros:Good priceCons:The car they sent us to was already being loaded by another customer. The second car the parking lot attendant told us to tell the counter agent to rent us was already rented. We didn't get a car until the third one and had to wait in line a second time. Rental was by Budget agent, who seemed more annoyed than helpful. No agent at Payless desk.Reviewed 30 Jul 2018

Great ExperiencePros:Nice low mileage car. Simple rental process with no pressure on a gas pre-purchase or on buying their insurance. People were nice on both ends. Price was great for a one way rental from NYC to BostonCons:The Payless toll system was a little expensive. I had to pay $16 for the privilege of using their toll pass. There is really no other way to do this, since all the tolls these days are cashless. Also, many other rental companies are even worse. So... If this is the only issue I have with them then it's pretty small.Reviewed 12 Feb 2018

Cons:However we included into the online reservation the insurance, they sold us more insurance with the explanation: the online version is not enough. It caused for us by 150 USD higher price, with no added valueReviewed 6 Nov 2017

Cons:Extended the rental for 1 day, was billed $1054 instead of $163, still trying to get my money back. Police stopped me on the road and told me the registration on the car had expired 2 months ago. The car had many dents.Reviewed 25 Aug 2017

Misleading taxes.Pros:NothingCons:The total was not close to what was actually the real total. $63 in taxes for a $30 rental doesn't make much sense. Had I been shown that from the beginning, I wouldn't have booked it. Not to mention the car smelled and was pretty dirty. Pickup was EWR airport. Other companies list the total taxes on the original reservation. The other people in line had the same complaints. I ended up not getting the car and finding alternative transportation.Reviewed 23 Jan 2017

Pros:Took over half hour at counter as agent was incompetent. I was next in line . Agent at counter twice tried to give me a giant SUV instead of the compact I ordered. Luckily I was able to get someone in the parking area that switched me to a smaller vehicle.Cons:Better customer service, faster check in and better attitudeReviewed 28 Oct 2019

Pros:The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable.Cons:We were told several times someone would be right with us but me and my husband had to wait about 20 min before we were actually helped. This was my only issue.Reviewed 8 Jun 2019
