Pretty standard car rental experience, no complaints!
Pros: Pick-up and drop off were easy, service was good, car was relatively clean and ran well. No complaints here.
Cons: Would prefer if the young driver fee could be mitigated with a good driving record or something, it raises the daily charge by almost half.

Horrible application by KAYAK
Pros: During the Reservation/Confirmation process, KAYAK failed to inform me that Alamo does NOT accept Debit cards, except under certain circumstances. This could have caused me to become stranded if it were not for Avis accepting my method of payment. Also, your Email survey form would not allow me to CHECK the boxes... if it were possible, I would have selected POOR for all areas. David Jones speakloud.david@gmail.com

Pros: Friendly and explain things well, including how to open the gas cap! Front desk clerk was very pleasant. Nice to have a car that had few miles and not smelly!

Absolely TERRIBLE
Pros: I reserved a car online ..speaking to a live person mind you...,perfect time to tell me you don't except debit cards!!!! I arrived tired...to visit my sick aging Dad...to be told oh sorry no debit cards no cash....stuck an hour 1/2 away from my destination... was told it's in the fine print!!!! Really, how F ING hard is it to tell people that up front instead of leaving people stranded????? There was more to this story that I'll share on Facebook and your website as review ...that was just as shocking to me. I will say ThANK YOU to UBER who saved the day!!

Wonderful Grand Dodge Caravan
Pros: We used this vehicle to transport most of our daughter's belongings back to Utah. We were able to fit all her things in this "stow and go" van. The van handled extremely well on the 3 days of driving. The last day of driving I drove over Highway 40 from Denver to Salt Lake City. That is a drive with steep hills and sharp turns, and the packed vehicle was a pleasure to drive. Thank you!

Meh.
Pros: Was offered a nice car once we finally got one.
Cons: Service staff when picking up the car was nonchalant about the fact that they didn't have a car available for me at the time of my reservation. They said it could be about thirty minutes until they had more cars and didn't apologize. When we were given the go ahead to proceed to the garage where our car was, the gentleman who was doling out keys carried on a lengthy conversation with another gentleman and then said oh you can just go over to the car and leave. Thanks. We rented from Hertz earlier that week and had a much better experience. The person renting to me put me at ease by doing a walk around, checking to make sure my lights worked, helping me adjust my seat, etc.

I didn't end up renting from Budget.
Cons: After calling a week in advance about my age and car rental and them okaying everything I got to the rental desk and they wouldn't rent to me and had several issues with the attendant there. We ended up going with Hertz and loved it.

Pros: The pickup and drop-off process was very easy at the Knoxville airport. The car was clean and ran very smoothly. We had no problems over a 9-day rental.

There was a problem(and it was fixed)
Pros: Very good service and fixed the problem right away after I asked
Cons: The car smelled like smoke and it looked it was not cleaned at all. I returned back to the airport and they quickly gave me another vehicle. New vehicle was clean but I had to pump air into tires since a few of them had very low pressure. Overall, I was happy with the service but I believe these should be taken are of beforehand.

Tired vehicle
Pros: Returning vehicle
Cons: 1) Car had 46K miles and bad wheel bearing or out of balance tire (thud, thud, thud sound). 2) Took forever to get through counter person and then car wasn’t even available in garage so had to wait some more 3) As I drove car away I started noticing sound and decided to “live with it” versus going back through slow process.

No cars?!?!?

Got last car!
Pros: Payless said they never received my booking despite fact that I had a receipt and confirmation number. They were able to find me their last car on Thanksgiving morning so it all worked out. They didn't honor my original booking price so it cost me $25 more. Person at counter was very nice and helpful. Don't know where mistake was made!

Over sold twice
Pros: Lowest price
Cons: Cars not available since they over sold. This happened twice. If you really need a car don't think it will be there since you reserved it. Reserve only if you want to take chance.

A very surreal exeriance
Pros: Nothing
Cons: I arrived in the middle of the day to the Payless counter, where there was no one present. All other companies had one or two employees present and helping customers. The person that works there returned from a smoke break, and proceeded to tell me that I am two hours late (??). Note that this is a location at an airport, so you would expect people to be delayed. He then told me that they were out of compact cars, but he can "give me a really good deal" for a larger car. I asked them to honor the price and reservation that I made, which is what every company always does. He told me that he can't do that since I was two hours late. I asked for his name, and he told me that "they do not give out names". I noted that employees of real rent-a-car companies wear name tags. Suffice to say, I waked away and rented elsewhere. In short the whole experience was right out of a Seinfeld episode (take vs. hold a reservation).

6 Jul. 2016
Pros: Overall, very pleased with the rental. Best price, nice, clean, reliable car.
Cons: Someone from Budget had to come over and check us out upon arrival since no-one was at Payless counter (there was a sign at counter instructing us to go to Budget counter for assistance). Had to go to counter for check-in receipt (returning) since parking garage check-in apparatus was not working.

My Experience
Pros: Good price. Friendly and helpful person checking out. But he worked for another rental company.
Cons: I never met with a Payless Car Rental employee. When I returned my car there was nobody there. They had a sign that they would mail me my receipt. I am traveling for work and will need this for reimbursement. I went to the Payless Car Rental counter at the Phoenix location and I was lucky to have them print out my receipt. Another thing that didn't always bother me but it still was a thing. The car smelled like sweat. Only if I kept the AC on and very cold I wouldn't smell it. But after work when the car was sitting in the sun the smell was strong with that car. Other than that the car was great.

nobody home
Pros: Price

Awesome.
Pros: I booked incorrectly, it was my fault, and when I got there I needed the car and my time constraints were very important. They informed me that the car would probably not be ready for another hour since that's the way I booked it. They, van, said well let's see what else we can do and referred me to another agency that could get me the car right away. I was able to keep the same rate
Cons: I did not like how I booked wrong online. But that was probably my fault :-)

Cancelled Car Reservation on Arrival
Cons: I was informed since my flight got in at 11am instead of 3p that I would be charged approx. $200 for the rental; which is RIDICULOUS!! I cancelled and rented from Thrifty instead for the same original price I was paying Payless.
