Cons:With a not so pushy sales agentReviewed 21 Dec 2020
review fromcheapflights
Pros:When I needed to exchange my vehicle due to a minor mechanical issue, it was fast and simple.Cons:When I arrived to pick up my vehicle there was no one in sight. When I finally found someone there was no greeting of any kind. But the agent was very rude handed me the keys and she walked out to continue her smoking, but did not direct me to the location of the vehicle. I had to read the signs to findout where their vehicles were parked and started walking down the aisle and hitting the alarm button to see which van would beep. And viola I found my rental. Horrible service when I picked up my rental but the agent I worked with when exchanging my vehicle was excellent.Reviewed 19 Jan 2021

Cons:I was informed at pickup time that the vehicle couldn’t be driven out of California. I had to make alternate arrangements quickly at a time when I was under a time crunch and a lot of stress.Reviewed 2 Feb 2021

Cons:The person that helped me check in was trying to pressure me into getting the insurance. I had to tell him multiple times I did not want it as I had my ownReviewed 28 Dec 2020

Pros:No part of the experience was positiveCons:If the car was clean, if they didn't try to gouge me on the price after we already had a price, did I mention how dirty the car was!Reviewed 20 Jul 2020
review fromkayak
Cons:We arrived early for our reservation and were told that the car we had reserved was not available - fine. We were asked whether it would be ok to substitute a different vehicle - also fine. Then informed that there would be an upcharge of $25 per day - not so fine, and not mentioned until after we accepted the new vehicle. Have had innumerable experiences at rental car places where vehicles were substituted at no additional fee due to availability. The employee was impolite and completely unwilling to work with us. We cancelled the reservation and went next door.Reviewed 29 Sep 2017

Pros:Yes. Super easy drop off and pick upCons:No automatic windows and locks. Not that big of a deal because it was an economy car, but it was mildly annoying.Reviewed 16 Sep 2020
review fromkayak
Pros:Pretty easy to pick up and drop off.Cons:I would have liked the option to make an adjustment to my reservation. I accidentally book for three days, when I only needed two. Payless said their hands were tied and didn't try to help me change it. Very disappointing.Reviewed 20 Oct 2020
