Pros:Pick-up and drop-off was a fairly simple process.Cons:When we received our car, the tire pressure light was on. We connected with an employee who filled the tires with air. When finished, the light was still on, but the employee said that "it's because the tires need some time to warm up" (it had snowed two days in a row previously). We had a car for a total of three days and two nights. The tire pressure light never turned off. I wish the employee had taken more care to look into the issue and/or escalate the matter so that we could receive a new car.Reviewed 2021 Feb 22

Top tips for renting a car from Payless in New York

  • New York's diverse terrain calls for thoughtful consideration when selecting a rental car. In bustling cities like New York City, compact cars excel with their easy maneuverability. Meanwhile, for excursions beyond the urban sprawl, an all-terrain SUV or crossover proves invaluable. Upstate's rugged landscapes, from the Adirondack Mountains to the Finger Lakes, demand vehicles with sturdy traction and ample ground clearance. Convertibles, perfect for scenic drives through the Hudson Valley, offer an exhilarating experience.
  • Parking is also crucial to consider when choosing a rental car. In bustling cities like New York, where parking spaces can be limited and expensive, opting for a compact or subcompact car makes sense. These vehicles are easier to maneuver and fit into tight parking spots. On the other hand, if you're exploring less congested areas or staying in places with ample parking, a larger vehicle like an SUV or van might be more comfortable and practical. If after taking these items into consideration you are still unsure of which vehicle will best meet your needs, a member of the Payless team will be happy to offer their insights and suggestions.
  • The Payless agency offers specialty vehicle options for drivers with particular mobility needs. If you require special equipment in order to operate a vehicle, it is recommended that you call 1 800 PAYLESS in advance of your rental period so that the company can do its best to meet your needs. Among their special services are free hand controls, and the ability for a visually impaired renter to add a traveling companion to their rental agreement for no additional charge. Note also that families traveling with children will be able to rent equipment such as infant, toddler, and booster seats for an additional fee.
  • For your convenience and because accidents happen, Payless offers an online Lost and Found directly for drivers who believe they have left behind personal belongings when returning their rental vehicle. You need only visit paylesslostandfound.com to type in the location at which you rented your vehicle. From there, you will be able to view misplaced items that have been cataloged or you may submit a ticket to report your lost item. You will even be able to return to the site to check regularly for status updates upon submitting your ticket.
  • Standard rental cars from Payless in New York are around 54% cheaper than other car types, on average.
