Cons:I got a letter 3 weeks after the return that claimed I smoked in the car and there was excessive smoke smell. I did not smoke, never have smoked in my life. They are charging me $450 and I have petitioned their customer service multiple times. They keep escalating it to another bureaucratic level of the business to hand off the problem to the next customer service representative. I will be reporting them to the Better Business Bureau and I will be filing a consumer fraud report to the Attorney General's Office of Illinois. This company has absolutely committed fraud and is trying to find a way to book extra revenue. I will never do business with the Avis Budget group (the company that owns Payless) ever again.Reviewed 5 Mar 2021

Pros:Staff was friendly and professional at both pick-up and drop-offCons:At pick-up they switched to a different vehicle which was an "upgrade" to a mid-sized SUV for the same price. Appreciated that, but once I left MSP I realized that the vehicle had not been washed or re-filled with gas, and so the Fuel light went on almost immediately (36 miles left). So I had to immediately gas up. The net of this was that I returned the vehicle with 150 miles left, and therefore bought more gas than I actually used. I documented the issue on the day of pickup and took a photo of my gas at least I didn't get hit with a fuel surcharge. But it would have been better for things to have been done right from the start.Reviewed 16 Jun 2020

Pros:Staff was friendly, especially the drop-off staff. Car was clean and operated well.Cons:Pickup process was a bit slow. The counter guy didn't actually call for the car until I arrived at the counter. It obviously wasn't ready when I got there.Reviewed 17 Mar 2020

WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE EVER!Pros:The price is cheap but not worth the rudeness of the people working at Payless in MSP longfellow.Cons:Difficult to find the location on longfellow south st paul. When I called them for direction, the guy on the phone doesn't speak much english. he yelled and hanged up on me.Reviewed 3 May 2016

Very good servicePros:Knowledgeable staff, they answered all of my questions. Vehicle availability was awesome!Cons:Price changed dramatically after I asked over the phone the price for upgrade. I wish extras (insurance, upgrade, milage) was a bit more competitive.Reviewed 11 Apr 2016

Couldn't take debit cardsPros:They were very polite while refusing to rent me a vehicle.Cons:I didn't like the fact that they couldn't accept my debit card nor provide an explanation as to why other than "the computer says I can't rent to you based on your debit card." They were quite polite, but completely unhelpful other than suggesting I walk across the street to Sixt car rental, which--though $100 more than the price Payless quoted me--was able to quickly process my debit card and get me on my way. So I guess I could thank Payless for introducing me to Sixt, which I will be using next time.Reviewed 11 Apr 2016

Pros:The pick-up and drop off was very convenient. There was less of a line than other vendors, and only a short wait for the car to be made available. Location of pick-up and drop off very convenient at the airport.Cons:They didn't specify drop off details, we just assumed it was the same location as pick-up. With the construction it's a maze to get in and out of rental location with the car.Reviewed 26 Aug 2019
