Cons:Never got the car. In fact, was swindled and lied to when picking up the vehicle, was told they had no more cars to rent out because they were tired and didn't want to help anymore people since they were closing. Instead they lied to us and then put us on a shuttle to go find a car at Avis in the airport and said they would refund the difference. Well now I am disputing the charge because they lied to me and said they don't honor reimbursing the difference because they are not affiliated with Avis when the representative at Payless said they were. STOP offering deals to pick up rentals from Payless in Costa Mesa.Reviewed 2017 May 04

SurprisedCons:Got to the counter and was told a debit card was no good. Payless agent made a call and a third party offered me a rate twice as much as the contract price and a $200 deposit whe I refused they offered another $20 discount. I was insulted and walked away.Reviewed 2017 Apr 03

Beater car rentals -- change their name!Pros:Not much. Slow slow check in. Marginal customer service. Best part? I turned car on early and they gave me money back (2days) That was unexpected but appreciated.Reviewed 2017 Jan 18

You get what you pay forPros:Price was far less than the majorsCons:Didn't have the car I reserved, so had to switch to a black mini van. Gave me paperwork though for a red economy car, so had to go back and get correct papers. Upon returning can, printer was not working so it took 10 minutes to get a receipt.Reviewed 2016 Nov 27
