The service was FANTASTIC, the staff was MORE than pleasant and nice, the back door was left open and battery died and they came IMMEDIATLEY and jumped started our vehicle and showed us to make sure it didnt happen again. i CANNOT say enough about the customer service and friendly staff at this location. Will be renting from them again PRONTO!!!!

The car given to me were the worse cars on the lot. First car had a broken air condition and the replacement car had a broken radio that displayed only in Chinese. It absolutely sucked driving in silence all week.

The car that we were given was barely operable. It was an older daihatsu. We comically named it the S#@tbox......It had a CV Shaft that was about to go out. Anytime you turned sharply or hit a bump it sounded like the wheel was going to fall off......had a slipping transmission and when you went up a hill, it would jerk you up it, the temperature light would come on randomly for a brief time, and lastly had a belt that needed replaced and would randomly squeal loudly. Had us concerned the entire trip that we were going to be stranded.

Check in took a long time. Three people in front of me and it took over one hour. The old Suzuki I drove went from 0-20 mph in about 10 seconds. It felt like the transmission was near the end of its life. Staff was very friendly and pleasant. Everyone drives pretty slow on island, so no need to speed.

Pickup was slow as we spent a lot of time waiting for the shuttle to get us from the airport to the rental place. The rental process was relatively smooth but we had to spend time figuring out the different price from what my quote said. The vehicle itself was clean but pretty worn out and rattled and the battery went dead. Definitely not the same quality as you would get anywhere in Canada. Nonetheless it served our purpose.

Undisclosed fees, taxes and surcharges raised the advertised weekly rate from $359 to $555.

1) They are NOT on-site at the airport - you have to take 3 minute van-ride out to the avis car rental center. Not a big deal, but if you are expecting a curbside pickup of your rental car, you will not get it. 2) They move REALLY slow at the front desk to get your pre-paid, pre-booked car ready. We waited for 40 minutes, for what i've got done in 7 minutes in other Avis centers 3) The Car was rather worn out, and beat up, and was not worth the COST we paid for it.

Flight delay gets you dumped by AvisThe consistently did nothing to help no matter how many numbers and people you talked withFlight was delayed by one day. Wouldn’t keep reservation even if I paid for the day it sat there. Kept stating there were no cars available for 7 day rental. Drove past Avis lot coming and going to a competitor that I tried not to use. Over 50 cars sitting idle. Paid more from competitors but got the service Avis wouldn’t do. Avis = dead to me.

We had a reservation at 4 p.m. for a rental car at the airport of providenciales the plane landed at 15.15 but the post-landing checks continued until 4.45 p.m. Leaving the airport around 4.50 p.m. No one was at the desk at avis. No notice, no message, no email, no one was interested in our book

Friendliness of staff.Waited 45 mins for the shuttle ride to Avis, as many other people got their pick of cars. When we arrived, they offered a manual Suzuki, w/ broken antennae, broken vents, & in poor shape. Couldn't fit in the car. Gave us a Suzuki Swift for more $ that was newer, but not clean and beat up.

The staff was friendly and helpful. Convenient location for an offsite office.Wait time at arrival/pickup was very long (airport was not busy at the time) From the time we checked in at airport car rental to leaving the Avis office was over an hour and half. Car return was easy, airport is very close, but again allow extra time for shuttle to the airport.

I still don't know if I was charged 2 times for the car there was an issue with the dates and the provider with original request to rent the car. The site changed the dates to dates that didn't work with my trip. Then we changed it but I never received a credit from the original order.

They closed at 5pm. I called twice before my flight departure letting them know the flight was delayed a couple hours. They could see the flight status and chose not to wait until 5:15pm for us to arrive and pick up the rental. All other car rental companies were fully committed so there was no alternative availability. I never took receipt of the rental car our entire stay. Extremely poor customer service.
2.0 Mediocre22 Mar 2022
They did not have any cars available. Had to find a different company. They said Kayak just books the cars even if none are available on the day requested. Probably won’t use Kayak for car rentals in the future.

We arrived at the airport in Turks and Caicos and went outside to obtain our car. We were told “Oh, sorry, we overbooked. We have no car for YOU. Come back and check tomorrow maybe there will be returns but I can’t promise you a car.” I asked “Shouldn’t our Friday reservation be honored ahead of reservations for the next day?” And I was told “No.” Paid $40 for a short cab ride to our lodging. Paid again to get back to the Payless “hut,” where a surly staff member just shrugged at me and said I could call back later. Walked over to Avis across the street and was assisted there by knowledgeable, prepared staff. They had no available cars, but the staff suggested a local vendor who picked us up in ten minutes and gad a great car fir our needs at a reasonable price. I will never use or suggest Payless. There were so many ways that they were disrespectful, disorganized, and unprofessional.

When I arrived, they said they were completely out of cars. There were many other people in the same situation. They “transferred” our reservation to a different company that was charging more

I made my rental reservation months in advance to our arrival in Turks & Caicos. My 21 yo daughter and I traveled there for 10 days. I wanted the most economical car rental I could find. I came across Payless online and they had a car that was perfectly affordable. They even called me a week prior to pick up saying I accidentally made two reservations and asked if I needed two. When we arrived at the airport the shuttle was there and drove us over to the lot. I wish I had taken the name of the woman working there but I didn't. Very courteous and professional. Answered all questions I had.
6.0 Good5 Dec 2021
I would definitely rent again from Payless. However, there were a few things that would've made our experience better. 1. Pick up from the airport took about 10 minutes even thought they are about 1 minute down the road. 2. The car wasn't ready. They needed to clean and gas it up and only started doing so after we arrived. We needed to wait an additional 30 min or so. 3. The printer was broken so we didn't receive our paperwork until hours later. The silver lining is that they're paper free as a result, but some may want to be able to review the contract for questions onsite, before leaving. 4. The car wasn't perfect. Lots of dings, bad windshield wipers, etc., but it got us from point A to B without any trouble. This is probably to be expected from any rental on an island which doesn't actively import new cars.

They did not show up, or answer their phones. When I did finally reach then the next day, they were rude and unhelpful. I will never use them again and will dissuade my friends and family from using them too. I think it devalues Kayak’s brand to be associated with them.

I have never had a better car rental experience ever and I have traveled all over the world renting cars. It started with a call the day before arrival to confirm the reservation and answer any questions. Upon arrival they were literally cheering my groups arrival at the desk in the airport. It was wonderful! We were escorted out of the airport directly to the car that they had waiting outside the airport. Never had that before. But the best part of the entire rental was on the last day when 30 minutes before departing for the airport I could not find the keys. I called the local office and Mary Ann Bagvio answered and told me not to worry they would come out to the house we were staying at and get us to the airport. As it turned out with the keys that they brought we were able to open the trunk and found the missing keys. The other lady who came with Mary Ann, Marraey who was just as sweet and helpful drove the car back to the airport for us and Mary Ann personally delivered us to the front door of the airport with ample time to catch our flight. Customer service doesn't get any better!! I will be a loyal Sixt customer forever!!

I reserved a Toyota Camry for $150/day which is crazy. The Camry I was given was a 2013, definitely not what I was expecting. The check in process is slow and very manual. Make sure you you take pictures/videos of the entire interior and exterior of the car. This office will closely inspect the vehicle upon return and charge you for any little scratch. The check out process is also very slow. The staff is nice.

Our quote from kayak was less than what hertz charged us on the spot in Providenciales. Even though we had a confirmation showing the correct price, hertz did not honor this. The agent at the Hertz counter was also very rude and unwilling to help us reconcile the charges. Overall, will not use Hertz again.
2.0 Mediocre24 Apr 2018
Reservation wasn't made clearI specifically reserved a one way rental from the airport to the grace bay road location which shows up as a PO Box on the kayak reservation. However Hertz tried to force me to return it to the airport stating they do not take returns at that location which is BS IMHO since I was allowed to reserve it that what. The were going to charge me a few to leave it there which I insisted was unauthorized and I would contest it with my credit card before I walked out very upset on my vacatiion. They finally decided not to charge the fee after I called later but I will never rent from Hertz again. What a mess!

Woman who checked us in was very confusing and told me GPS didn’t work down there (it did), so I had to guess my way to our hotel when I first got there. Entire front end of car shook violently. Windshield wipers needed changing. Couldn’t clear my windshield during a downpour. They DID replace the car with a model which did not shake violently. Location has no address that was accessible through GPS, and no one at their Airport counter knew their address to return the car. We were a half hour late for our flight, driving in circles trying to find it. It was off the beaten path; tucked away. Car was a Suzuki, that we barely fit in. They could have test driven the car before they rented it out, and replaced wipers on both cars we had. The young man who brought us the replacement car was very nice, but all the women at the desk were condescending. Would go through Grace Bay Rentals next time.

Nothing other than the good gas mileage which is expected with this type of vehicle.The staff charges a $20.00 fee for “pick up and drop off”, absolutely ridiculous. The car was not vacuumed upon pick up, it smelled like horses manure, and drop is super confusing. I have literally never had such a bad experience with a rental. I will be submitting a claim with my financial institution for the extra $20.00 fee which is nowhere on your website.

The staff was friendly and the pick up was relatively easy. The car was old and worn but I expected that as this is a budget rental. There was no one there for the drop off and I had to just park the car and drop the key. They charged me an additional $25 for something but I can not find out what it was. No answer on their phone. The car also had a loose battery cable and it would not start at least a 1/2 dozen times until I opened the hood and reconnected it. I had no way to tighten it so it continued throughout the rental periodAlmost everything could have been better. Unless you are handy and happy with a beater car rent somewhere else.
