One very small complaint...I stood in line for about 30 minutes at pickup.Reviewed Sep 21 2023

The rental car was absolutely filthy and the previous renter smoked in the car. I don’t believe Payless even looked at the car for cleanlinessReviewed Sep 18 2023

This was my first experience with Payless and it was outstanding. Easily the nicest and cleanest car I have ever rented. I will be definitely use them again.Reviewed Aug 7 2023

Your pickup was not at the airport. I had to pay $50 to Uber 25 miles to pickup the car and was not able to drop the car off at the airport which meant I had to drop my people off at the airport and then drive 25 miles back to the Avis location to return the car. Then I had to have a friend take me to the airport.Reviewed Jun 26 2023

The car was dirty and smelled like feet. There were also plenty of marks/scratches on the vehicle.Reviewed Jun 2 2023

CMH rental center is best of all airports. Efficient, clean, personable staff, signage clear, process flows all worked out. Cars clean and mine was new. Yippee!!Reviewed May 24 2023

The first car had a check engine light on and smelled like tobacco. We got a good replacement quickly which was great.Reviewed Apr 18 2023

Signage wasn't great at airport for drop off or pick up. Took forever to get rental. Car wasn't what I was fine but not what I wanted.Reviewed Mar 27 2023

There weren’t enough cars ready to go and there were many people waiting for their cars. I got stuck with a jeep wrangler (terrible gas mileage) when I rented a standard vehicle. It smelled very strongly of cigarette smoke and the oil change light was on when I picked it up. Because there weren’t enough cars I didn’t want to wait longer to switch it out. But I wanted to let them know so I didn't get charged for these things and the worker told me he didn’t have any of the forms to report it.Reviewed Mar 9 2023

The first car I was assigned was not in the spot. Waited in line again at the counter in the parking lot, and was told to go back downstairs. Had to wait in line yet again to get reassigned. Overall, the process took over an hour, with the initial line only having 4 people in front of me, then 2 at the parking lot kiosk, and then waiting for almost 35 minutes to go through the like downstairs again. Very poor communication from the workers, and none seemed to want to deal with people, and not a single apology for the mistake, just a glare and a piece of paper shoved back at me.Reviewed Aug 25 2022

The convenience and easy pickup and drop was amazing. The size of the vehicle for the value was great. The only slight issue was the car was a little dirty. In the cup holders and some crevices were sticky. Luckily I travel with Disinfectant wipes, other than that I would use Payless again for my car rental needs.Reviewed Jul 13 2022
