Pros:Drop off was easy.Cons:Long wait at pick up. They didn’t have the compact SUV and instead suggested I take a pickup truck. I was worried about the size and they assured me it was “small or midsize.” It was giant. I could barely get out of the airport parking lot and it was difficult to park throughout my trip. The back window wouldn’t close.Reviewed Apr 4 2021

Cons:I paid for a small suv and received a compact for the same price. The worker repeatedly explained to me, “sorry sir that’s how supply and demand works.”Reviewed Mar 13 2021
review fromkayak
Pros:The car was clean and reliable.Cons:I feel there is a scam going on with their gas policy. I declined their auto fill option which they marketed heavily to me. I filled up the tank a few minutes before dropping off the car, and on my car rental receipt they charged me $12.99 for 1.3 gallons of gas. They said it was full to 14 gallons at the time of rental and that I returned it with 12.7 gallons. I know that is not true, but of course I didn't save my gas receipt. I didn't have high hopes for getting my money back since I didn't save my receipt, but to my surprise when I called the representative offered to remove it immediately. He seemed all to familiar with my type of call. If I had to guess, I'd say this is a common practice for Payless and if you don't want to get cheated out of $12.99 you have to call and complain.Reviewed Mar 2 2021

Pros:The Avis and Budget people were fine When I had an issue and had to speak to a Payless person It may be the worst customer service experience I ever had I’m assuming they are going out of business and everyone there is just angry I would avoid using this company till they figure this out Whatever money you may save using them isn’t worth itReviewed Nov 23 2019
review fromkayak
Pros:Very uncomplicated pick up and drop off! Friendly staff working efficient. We got an upgrade and were totally satisfied with our car! Excellent value for money!Cons:Counter was closed and we were sent to budget counter which was also closed. So all people were directed to Avis, which meant quite a bit of a queuing.Reviewed Sep 3 2019
review fromkayak
Pros:There was no staff available at the Payless at the Austin airport. Staff at the Austin airport was rude and clueless. It took 1.5 hrs for the Budget rental agency to find a car for me. Instead of promised Chrysler 200 or similar car, they offered a 10 seater van or a pickup truck. inappropriate optiCons:Never take any deal from PaylessReviewed Aug 23 2019
review fromkayak
Cons:I did not go on one toll road but was lead to believe I probably would be on one. Paid $11 a day for that :( Also, young man when I returned my car was not helpful.Reviewed Aug 20 2019
