    Pick-up nightmare
    Pros: Manager stepped in to salvage situation.
    Cons: Didn't have my reserved car (actually had only two cars on Loy, both subcompacts). Wanted me to go to Avis, pay the difference between their rate and Avis, and they would reimburse me by "check in the mail" two to three weeks later! Really???

    Lowball reservation quote
    Pros: nothing
    Cons: Ruben at San Diego Lind berg Field I did not care for. I have a printed reservation for $110.54. The price jumped up to $149.72 !!! Why ? A new tax. You failed to incorporate the new Jan. 1 2017 airport tax into the quote. Knowledge of the tax is not new, it has been known for months. Yet, when I told Ruben that is 30 % higher than I have a reservation for, his unsavory comment was " Hey, you are pretty good at math ". Since then I went to Enterprise, and they told me that Payless always lowballs . The other comments on this page confirm your way of doing business. I am going tell everyone of my experience with Payless, never use you again, and dispute the bill on my Visa card.

    Pleasantly surprised!
    Pros: The low price I was quoted seemed too good to be true ($123/8 days) so I expected to hit some snags via up-charges. In fact, they boosted the price by $30 at the time of checkout even though I had a confirmation code on a price that included taxes and fees. The reason they gave was that prices from any 3rd-party booking sites were not binding. Even still, it was a great deal compared to the national chains. They were very accommodating when I needed to trade in my car due to engine problems. They gave me an upgrade and did not charge me for the fuel I'd used.
    Cons: I declined their insurance coverage and the counter person hassled me for not knowing the coverage amounts for bodily harm on my policy although I am confident that it is more than sufficient. I presented my auto insurance card - which doesn't have an expiration date printed on it - and had to offer to call the company to get answers to both those questions. I rent cars often and have never been aggravated like this. I was on hold with my insurance company and finally the counter person backed-off because the line behind me was very long. It was a pain. The first car I got was a lemon and had issues accelerating. I needed to trade it because the "check engine" light came on. I called the local Payless office to inform them and got only an answering machine. I kept trying and finally got a response after 2 days. Fortunately, they were exceptionally apologetic about it once I arrived I person.

    Pros: The staff from the check in dest was really nice.
    Cons: They gave me a mid size sedan instead of a full size sedan, I asked why, and the guy from the pick up dest just yelled at me and say I shouldn't judge what the car's size was based on the official website of payless, which doesn't make sense to me. Anyway I took the car because I waited over 40 min for them to get my car ready, I would absolutely never go back to san diego with Payless. Horrible service. Oh and by the way when they are getting my car ready, I was not being notified with anything, I just stand there and waited for over 40 min.
