I didnt like the face that it was still kind of high but it is suppose to be a cheap website but it was just as high as the company itself. When i use to go threw you all it was much cheaper. But things has change.

I arrived at 9am for car pickup. Line was 30+ people long due to major understaffing. Took at least 45 minutes to get up to the counter. Then was told that it would be a longer wait as they didn’t have cars ready to go again due to major understaffing of people preparing vehicles for rental. It was at least another 45 minutes to wait for a vehicle. The timeframe I lost should have been subtracted from my cost! Please make an adjustment for this and credit me money back. Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Never got a car, so nothing to like.I was sent to a pick up location that had been closed for years. Had to travel 10 miles to another location, then told I wasn’t in their system so no car available. Thank goodness Budget was right next door.

I had to cancel my trip because the rental location was didn’t exist and I had to spend more money on Uber back and forth to hotel and car rental places.

The associate at the Jackson Hertz was very unhelpful and discourteous. I reserved a mid-size SUV and on the reservation it said, “Jeep Cherokee, Ford Escape, Toyota Rav-4, or similar model.” However, the associate would not let me rent a Jeep Cherokee without paying for an upgrade.
8.0 ExcellentAug 3 2019
It was fine.The car not smelling like cigarettes Would have been great. I think smokers can’t read signs on windshields.
2.0 MediocreMay 15 2019
The car itself was nice and drove well.I selected the Lakeland Dr office on the map and completed the reservation process. Unfortunately, I did not read the confirmation. Went to pick up the car at the Lakeland Dr and they did not have reserv. The reserv was at a site 20 min away, which was not on map when I selected!

ReliefTold reserved "manager's special", so had to take a minivan. There was no mention of that during the initial reservation on the website. I protested that online develop behind me so I took the minivan, but when I went to the lot, I was relieved to find nice little sedan instead.Initial bad news, followed by relief. I would really hate to believe Alamo with bait and switch at a higher rate which is what the clerk said might happen. I was just having him check when the line started behind me. He did mention I was about the tenth customer that was offered the manager special and others had ended up getting a different type of car, presumably at an increased cost. The car was nice, but not clean. Crumbs everywhere!

Awesome experience with Payless. I rented the car for a week.I liked the fact that the car rental was easy and affordable.I would simply recommend to make all vehicles affordable because some family are naturally big people.

Had reservation for pickup at 8pm. Got there 10 minutes after 8pm to find out they closed at 8pm. Poor communication and should not allow for reservation to be scheduled at closing time.
3.2 MediocreAug 11 2017
Scheduled pick up for 8pm. They closed at 8pm and no one was able to assist me with rental. I had to cancel and order another car last minute through a different company. I had to pay more and lost 2 hours of time. Called Bridget Whiteman, the supervisor, and she recommended I wait until the next morning to pick up the car. Very poor service and would not recommend.
2.0 MediocreAug 11 2017
Worst value and customer service everAfter making online reservations and driving across town to pick up the rental car, the rude agent said that I must have a "printed utility bill" as proof of residency. I am 65 years old with a valid drivers license. I provided the license and credit card as I always do and she said she could not rent me the vehicle without the "printed proof of residency". I rent cars almost weekly and will never use Payless again.

Staff in Jackson never answered the phone. We were getting in at 11:15PM and it said the booth closed at 11. Call all day to confirm and no one picked up. When we returned the car, we were charged double the price of what we rented it for. Horrible experience.

Associate was unprofessional and flirtyI liked the efficiency of service, the car was ready. It was a great experience. The rental process was hindered by the overly flirty associate.The associate was unprofessional. He asked me where I was going, where I worked, make comments about my appearance. When I asked him what was his purpose, he stated it was apart of his job. I came to get a car, not to be harassed at the counter by a hormonal college student. He thought my irritation was funny. He and the female associate next to him. It was not.

I was not satisfied with the Insurance offer'sThe car was clean, good on gas, pick up and drop off was good.The car was too small, the agents didn't explain the Insurance well. I paid for insurance and locked the key in the trunk and I had to pay another $60. That could have been avoided if that was explained when I picked the car up. Thanks. DEBORAH CHUKKA

The lady in Mobile that exchanged the car was nice.The car engine warning light came on and the radio screen went black about two hours into our trip. We were on a long trip from Jackson, MS to St. Augustine, FL. So we spent an hour locating and trading out the car for another one in Mobile. The lady at the counter was nice. But, there was no additional time added to our contract so we had to rush to Florida so that we wouldn't have an additional charge.

Top tips for renting a car in Jackson

  • Jackson is not only the capital of Mississippi but also one of the state’s most populated cities. Many travelers come to Jackson, Mississippi for either leisure or business, and a Jackson car rental will give you the luxury of attending your business meetings and sightseeing at your own pace rather than figuring out which of the city’s limited bus routes will get you where you want to go or spending extra money and time on rideshares. Be sure to check out historic sites that were at the epicenter of the nation’s human rights movement, like the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum, the Medgar Evers House, Freedom Corner, and the Greyhound Bus Station Freedom Trail Marker. With a car, you can take a road trip outside of the city limits to the Bienville National Forest 50 miles away, the Delta National Forest 75 miles away, or nearby to the Ross R Barnett Reservoir 22 miles away.
  • Pick up your Jackson rental car directly from Jackson-Medgar Wiley Evers International Airport (JAN) to save time and money. Most car rental companies are located on-site at the Car Rental Center in Terminal Level 1 across from the baggage claim. Some additional companies offer complimentary shuttle services, which you can catch directly outside the main terminal doors. Look for a brown sign indicating the Rental Car Shuttles. Then you can drive your car rental in Jackson 6 miles into Downtown Jackson.
  • Because Jackson is a large city, particularly when it comes to manufacturing, the highways around Jackson can get busy. The major highways in Jackson, Mississippi include Interstate 55, Interstate 20, Interstate 220, US 51, US 49, and US 80. Although the winter season is quite temperate, the city roads are frequented by several potholes, so please drive your car rental in Jackson with caution and a close eye to the road.
  • Snow is rare in Jackson, nonetheless, be sure that you practice safe driving in snowy or icy conditions by not slamming your brakes and driving below the speed limit. The morning rush hour is between 7am and 8am. During rush hour, the Interstate 55 South towards Byram tends to get the most backed up. Keep these rush hour times in mind when returning your car to catch a flight, and allow for more time to arrive in case of traffic.
  • 25% of our users found rental cars in Jackson for $76 or less
  • Book your rental car in Jackson at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Full-size rental cars in Jackson are around -4% cheaper than other car types, on average
