Although I had a reservation there were no cars to rent
2.0 MediocreOct 25 2021
The Thrifty desk was closed. We had to go to the Hertz desk. No cars were available. After about an hour we were given a full size car although we had specifically reserved an SUV. The car was far from new. The winshield wipers were very old and did not clean the windshield. The low air pressure light was on despite several atempts to fill the tires. The light was on saying it neededd survice. The price was outrageous. Almost $200 a day by the time we finished.
1.9 HorribleSep 12 2021
Pros- Friendly staff, easy pickup and drop off. Cons- Car reeked like cigarettes, wouldn’t let me trade out. Had to deal with it for a few days.
5.9 OkayAug 2 2021
Insane prices for the same pre Covid $30 per day service. Long wait to check in and pick up The car.
1.9 HorribleJul 25 2021
The car was listed as free cancellation. That was a lie. The reservation was made for the wrong day. I couldn’t speak to an actual human. It was the only car counter unmanned at the airport. They essentially stole $500.
1.9 HorribleJul 20 2021
Though I made my car reservation months in advance, they did not have a car available when I arrived. It was an hour and a half after I arrived at the Thrifty rental counter before I got a car. The only reason I got a car that soon was that I accepted a smaller car than I had reserved. The person at the counter was friendly but was not honest with me. At first I was told it would take a few minutes to bring my car up from the back lot. Then my car was not being brought up because there were 4 other customers ahead of me also waiting on cars to be brought up. Then finally she admitted that they did not have any cars of the size I had reserved but did have a smaller one if I wanted it.

6.0 GoodMay 23 2022
Excellent staff, I reserved a full sized car and was given a 2door subcompact car. The clerk worked diligently to find a vehicle. The car we wound up with had a dirty wind shield and the wiper fluid was empty on delivery. I want to emphasize that the personnel were great, the system mediocre .
2.0 MediocreMay 16 2022
No one was at the counter when I arrived. Several of us waited for close to hour. Finally someone at Hertz was able to help. After speaking to some others in the lots it appears no one is usually at Dollar or Thrity. I’d stick with Hertz, Avis, Budget or Enterprise or at least I know I am going forward. Shouldn’t take an hour to get settled with a rental after traveling and the airport is onsite. They need to be more organized and have more staff available.
2.0 MediocreApr 6 2022
When we arrived to pick up our car there was nothing available. We waited over an hour for our car. The car we booked was not available at all and had to take a lesser car. Wry disappointed. Will not use a third party or Dollar again
2.0 MediocreFeb 16 2022
When I arrived to pick up the car I pre-payed for, they didn’t have any cars. The attendant laughed and said “you should’ve came sooner” even though I had just gotten off my flight
1.9 HorribleSep 3 2021
I made a reservation and was given a confirmation number. When I got to Jackson they had no car for me. I had to rent from another company which ended up costing me a lot more money. Not happy about that at all.
2.0 MediocreMay 19 2021
The SUV that I reserved was not available which made me later than I was expecting which basically pushed a lot of other things to be later than expected; then I was charged for another day rental although the guy at the airport said that I should not have been charged for extra day. I was not compensated at all for them not having the 7 passenger vehicle with 2 bags SUV that I reserved! Pathetic
2.0 MediocreDec 31 2020
Wish they had a car ready for us since we booked a reservation. Received a call stating no cars available.
5.2 OkayDec 10 2018
Good service, but not what I orderedFriendly and fast serviceMy reservation said “Hyundai Sante Fe Sport or similar” but I received a Chevrolet Equinox. I quickly learned that the Equinox is nowhere near the quality of the Santa Fe Sport, so I felt I had been given a sub-par vehicle.

The rental agent was very polite, even though she was running 3 desks at once. I was well taken care of, and I will use your servise again.

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!

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.

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.

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.

nice clean car, easy to pickup and easy to returnmy flight was delayed and I arrived about 4 hours later than expected. When I got there, they were out of cars for myself and two others. They had to go and retrieve them (not sure from where). The staff was great and kept us informed and apologized for the delay.

Pretty much a nightmare experience from the first minuteLocation was convenient to the airportI got the run-around for more than 1 hour and ultimately we had to call corporate to get a car issued. The car I ultimately got was not the car I had reserved and was not very comfortable (a very basic Toyota RAV 4 instead of a Chrysler 200). I had lost my drivers license and my state issued a paper license to be used with an older expired license and the clerk at the counter refused to accept it even though it was a state-issued license. Manager also refused, even when told that the Hertz agreement only states that the driver must present a valid license (which I did). He told my husband that if we read the internal documents from Hertz (how in the world would anyone have access to this stuff?) we'd see that paper licenses were not acceptable. 2 calls to corporate only confirmed what we knew--a paper license issued by the state was indeed valid. 90 long minutes later, a car was ultimately issued. We have never had such poor customer service from a rental car company.

You have to go inside the airport terminal to the counter because no one staffs the location in the parking garage. Other than that, it was a typical rental.

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.
