This comapany is heavy on pushing collision damage waiver. This is the first time ever, ever, in which the representative asked to see my insurance card showing I had full coverage. Then still kept pushing Collison damage waiver. They also worded i to make it seem as if you cant get the rentla without ut. Unfortunately, I only realized after that my credit card also covered Collison damage waiver and could havecompletely declined it. Crooks!Reviewed 2022 Aug 08

The car selection was awful. I would not recommend renting from Payless. We’re not picky but we looked at 6 different cars, all were filthy and smelled of cigarettes. We settled on a terrible VW Passat with 106K miles, that looked like a child had painted the number four different times. On the upside the staff was friendly enough.Reviewed 2022 Aug 03

The airport tax should have been well stipulated and not part of the fine print. My car price doubled by the time I was finished. The reservation person was exceptionally nice.Reviewed 2022 Jul 29

The car itself ran like it’s never been maintained. Sounded and felt like it desperately needed an oil change and when turning you would here a click sometimes…just seemed like it was ready to retireReviewed 2022 Jul 18

The vehicle was very dirty when I picked it up. Payless charges $150/day if you have an accident for “down time” but insurance only covers $50/day. This applies a lot of pressure to buy their insurance or else suffer $100/day out of pocket.Reviewed 2022 Jul 14

This is a fraudulent operation, they attempt to force you to buy an unnecessary damage loss waiver by claiming you need to have physical proof of collision insurance at the counter, which is not true.Reviewed 2022 Jul 02
