Pros:Staff was incredibly friendly and easy to get the car at drop off and pick up.Cons:Pick Up at airport was much less than the other rental car companies. This company was MUCH farther than many of the other rental car companies and should be advertised as on site of the airport. Many of the other companies you can walk from the terminal to the rental company (and they had vans picking up 3-4x as much as this company) but this was at least a 5-10 minute drive.Reviewed 2021 Apr 25

Pros:There were no staff. There was no shuttle. No one answered the phone. I finally got some central office which sent me to the Budget rent-a car office which said it did not deal with Payless.Cons:Everything. In the absence of the promised rental car from Payless I had to rent one from Avis. I was lucky to get that and avoid a completely useless trip.Reviewed 2021 Apr 09
