they will make you take their insurance
Pros: nice people, return in manhatten was open till 11pm (perfect for my need), nice car
Cons: they will make you take their insurance. I told them about the aliance insurance that I booked via Kayak, but they told me that it won't cover the cost for days that they could not rent the car in case of an accident

Cons: I know it was 2:00am but the representative did not great us; just typed on computer, left and went into the back, came back out - only said "drivers license" .. told me I had two reservations and when I tried to explain that I was out of the country and was afraid if I cancelled the first one, the second reservation might be cancelled as well... he just said "it doesn't matter" asked for my credit card - went outside, came back in, pointed to the screen and I went through checking off and signing. he handed me the papers and my cards back and said the care was in C9 -- No customer service skills (but, was very quick)

Terrible customer service
Pros: The location of pick up office.
Cons: I waited 2.5 hours in line to get my rental car. The staff was slow inefficient and could care less about the customer. What made things worse was that one of the 3 employees left before her shift was over leaving only 2 people to help the ever growing line of customers. When I final got my car it was dirty and the tank wasn't even full.

Pros: Car was fine.
Cons: Exceptionally long wait despite vehicle being on the lot, and we needed to keep nudging the attendant to remember to get the car ready; he had us sit down and basically we disappeared for them. Very frustrating.

Cons: I was switched from economy to full size, no extra charge but more gas money. I did not notice that tank was not full until I had driven a way. I offered to document to the company that I had put in 6 gallons to drive 115 miles, but they turned down my request for reimbursement of 16$, on the grounds of the "upgrade".

bad service at pickup
Pros: The car was good and the dropoff process was ok
Cons: The pickup attendant was terrible. We tried to rent the car using the credit card insurance and she insisted that it's not possible. I wasted a lot of time to convince her to process the rental without the store's insurance to allow me to get the credit card insurance.

Kayak is a Scam
Pros: Nothinh
Cons: Kayak cheats the customer by offering an insurance at the time of booking the reservation. Please note that this is not from the car rental provider. In the same price, one can get coverage up to 1 million USD (against Kayak offering only 40,000). Also, there is no provision for third party liability insurance. And the worst part is you are not aware about any of these till the time you pick up your car. And hertz won't change or add the insurance once you pick up the car. I had booked a Toyata Corolla and got a shitty KiA Rio which made lot of sound, no provision for change of car and no help. Hertz 1/5 Rating Kayak 0/5 Rating Go for other website like arguscarhire.com cheaper and transparent and book Alamo, Thrifty and Dollar. These may be smaller companies then Avis, Hertz but are much better at service and transparency.

Pros: Car was as described.
Cons: The wait time upon arrival/pick-up was deplorable. Two individuals working with only one individual actually attempting to process client's rentals while the other looked on. Total time from arrival at counter to receiving car was approximately 40min. Upon return, the electronic check-in device for the outside staff was not working correctly. I was told to proceed to the check-out counter with my contract in hand. When I arrived, the agent had a long line of customers picking up so they couldn't assist me promptly. I again had to wait in line just to return the car.

I don't think it really matters
Pros: Not much
Cons: I don't think it really matters, nothing will be done, and I'll gain nothing from this, so I'm not wasting my time discussing it with you, unless I will actually get something for it, and then you can personally email me again at gfriedman@aish.com. The chances are that you won't, because nobody really reads this anyway:)

Excellent service
Pros: The person who checked the car out to us at JFK was efficient, clear, and helpful. Having the check-in person at PHL see that we had a toddler and tons of bags and drive us back to the airport to drop us at the curb was fucking amazing. THANK YOU!!!!!!!
Cons: Not being able to use the ez pass as you go. There's no way we would have needed $20 per day of tolls. Maybe a single flat fee and then pay the ez pass tolls you accrue would make more sense.

Pros: Denise was very helpful with our rental. She accommodated our needs and helped us solve a problem that we had when we arrived. It was much appreciated.
Cons: Just need to remember that with taxes + fees, the rental always ends up being at least $100 more than what Kayak estimates (I forgot about that one). So estimated was $230, ended up being a little under $350.

Terrible service
Pros: I had a rude manger. They gave me a compact car when the website sites said it would be big enough for two suitcases. They also demanded that I bring a recipe proving that I filled the gas at a nearby location something unheard of .and worst of all the worker was rude bossy an unhelpful.

22 Nov 2015
Pros: The car drove nicely, and was reasonably clean....
Cons: The associate told me to go the wrong numbered spot, so I had to return the desk. Then the car had only 3/4ths the gas though I was marked for a full tank, so I had to return to the desk. When I returned it, I was charged for "being late by an hour" (something I've never thought about when returning before a flight). Being hidden in the Hertz station made it hard to find. Pretty poor customer experience, and will be going out of my way not to use Thrifty again in the future.

Successful trip
Pros: Pick up and drop off was one of the easiest things at the airport, we got decent gas mileage too! The seats were pretty comfortable.
Cons: The "cruise control" on the car wasn't normal, the button even said "coast" so it was constantly changing speeds. What's the point of cruise control if it doesn't actually work how it's supposed to . And the pickup on that Nissan sonata is terrible.
4.8 Okay
19 Sep 2016
Poor experience
Cons: Counter staff is fully aware but unapologetic for their google maps location being off and our walking 45 minutes to an incorrect location. Had to wait 45 minutes for a car with 10 others because "the cars were in the wash". Staff berates us for not taking EZPass or their coverage even though we explained we have coverage through the booking on Kayak.

Cons: The car reeked of cigarettes which I a. extremely sensitive too. It snowed un xpectedly and I felt extremely unsafe in the car which felt very unstable driving in those conditions. It took forever to pick up the car, they have only one person working at a time to help people. I guess that's what I get for the good deal I got. I will do my best not to rent from Payless again.

scarebones rental but the price was right
Pros: Well, if you can find the place, it isn't terrible. No one was there when I dropped off the car @ 6 am, and there was no drop box so I had to leave the keys in the car. The car itself was fine and the rental was a really good price, so keep that in mind. But it was a hassle returning the car as the Google maps address was in the airport service road complex, and I had to figure out the public address by asking.
4.0 Okay
4 Dec 2015
Pros: I found the staff to be untrained and the policies of Payless somewhat antiquated. I originally indicated I would bring my vehicle back 1 1/2 days into my rental. When I decided to keep the vehicle the full 2 days Payless wanted to charge me a change fee and bill me for another day - even though it would have still been within the original 2 days I paid for. In addition, they charged me for an EZPass and I spent 2 days driving through tolls until a cop stopped me and told me I did not have an EZPass. Lastly, when I wanted to add a second driver noone seemed to know how to add to my policy. Very disappointing experience and I will likely not use them again.
5.6 Okay

Look Elsewhere
Pros: Good value for the car rented.
Cons: Waited about a hour in the lobby (with one seat for customers) to take delivery of a reserved car. Car was delivered with only 3/4 tank of fuel, but not indicated as such on invoice. Weather was too cold and lobby too full to go back in to correct invoice. I returned car with full tank though, to avoid any addional charges. Will not recommended nor use Payless in the future.

Cons: 1- The confirmation was for unlimited mileage while the fact was ONLY for 150 miles/ day, the manager made it 1500/ 6 days for me. 2- They have refused at the beginning to give me the car without a US phone number while the phone number in the confirmation was for an international (Egyptian) phone line and it was working with me in the US but they refused and told me to go and buy a US phone line, so I've walked a lot searching for an American mobile phone line to buy but I couldn't find any as it was 8 am and no phone markets open before 10am, so I went back to Enterpise around 9:15am and the manager accepted to give me the car and asked me to buy a US phone line and give them the number on the same day BUT I TOLD HIM THAT IF I COULDN'T BUY IT TODAY I'll BUY IT TOMORROW MAXIMUM AND GIVE THE NUMBER AND HE AGREED, I've called the manager (Bryan Leo) on the next day early morning many times till he replied to tell him that it's in mind to get the phone line asap and I bought it and called him many times again till he replied and gave it to him, then I was surprised when I've known that they have charged me once more on the previous day (the same day I've taken the car and the deal with that manager that I'll call him on the same day or on the next day and he agreed), I've tried again many many times to call that manager and understand from him why did he do that, he replied because I didn't furnish an American phone number on the same day and when I told reminded him that we have agreed to get the phone line on the same day OR ON THE NEXT DAY, he started to snake and play with words. The real problem that they were supposed to charge me about $120, but they said they will charge me $307 (120 rental and the rest security) and I agreed, but because of what the manager did, they have charged me $614, they have refunded $494 when I returned the car back but the problem is that my credit card is in EGP and they have charged me in U$D so I had to pay 6% more in each transaction, which means that I have lost not less that $50 when that manager played with my credit card. However, when I asked him while I was returning the car back "why did he do so and didn't respect what we have agreed on", he replayed that it was above him and that was not his decision. This is the story and I hope you will do something. Kind regards, Osama 609-233-1274

Great service and convenient but dirty and in need of maintenance
Pros: The customer service staff was very nice and seemed to enjoy being there. The pickup was convenient, the car was well placed.
Cons: The car was filthy and not as if it was not cleaned from the previous person but as if it has not been cleaned well in a while. The car was also missing a hub cap from the beginning.

Pros: The drop off was quick and easy. The SUV I had requested was unavailable, this could have snowballed into an issue, but the employee was able to find a solution quickly. She had the perfect attitude dealing with a client like myself, not easy.
Cons: The SUV I had requested was unavailable because of logistical reasons. No debut card accepted, credit card only. This information is not noted on their website nor was a I informed via telephone or email.

Jay (manager) Enterprise 80th & 2nd is incredible!
Pros: I arrived late (and desperate) an hour after the garage had closed, and Jay opened it back up and got me my car. He gave me a free upgrade and was super friendly. Best service I've ever had from a car rental garage. He chatted with me amicably about my trip and was genuinely interested in what I was saying. When I got back, he remembered me and asked how my trip to Boston was. The car was great as well, clean and no issues. Thanks Jay!! Nicole at the desk was a pleasure too!

I wasn't able to rent although I was promised a ca
Cons: Wasn't able to rent the car because I had a debit card. When I asked if my boyfriend could come and put down his credit card and license and rent the car and authorize me as a driver, she said no because she didn't like my attitude. It was a terrible and traumatizing experience. Will never ever try to rent from Avis again.

Worst experience
Pros: I liked nothing about the service marketing was misleading
Cons: We set up for a rental they asked for payment and license information. Credit cards are under my wife's name she holds no license. We were using my license they booked our pick up for 6am. We arrive at avis to be told credit card and license must have the same name. We couldn't get the rental and were told the pre paid amount was not going to be refunded to us.

Never again
Cons: I received 2 email confirmations and I made 2 phone calls to Avis confirming my pick up in NYC, and my drop off in Port jervis. When I arrived at my drop off location, there was a hand written note on the door saying they were closed for the entire weekend and wouldn't be back until Monday. There was no drop off box or instructions on how to drop off this car. Why did Avis confirm my drop off at Port jervis if the location was closed? You need a better handle on drop off locations that just decide to close without notice and screw people over like me.

Cons: The Avis location ran out of cars for over 4 of us who had confirmed reservations. After they ran out of cars they refused to give us an ETA on when cars would be arriving from another location. The workers were then extremely rude while we tried to get clarity on the situation and then locked themselves in the employee lounge and hid from us for the 45 minutes it took to get the new cars delivered. Some people just left for a nearby hertz.

Economy was there every step of the way.
Pros: Highly suggest. A quick walk from Airtran at JFK, cutting time with shuttle. The car was ready and freshly washed. A video of surface scratches was made on the spot and emailed. The personnel were all very helpful and personable, with good advice on direction. And what a deal. Came through in a pinch, too, at the last minute. Even the other customers there were in a good mood.
Cons: At first it seemed difficult to find but with GPS I got there easily.

Good for the money
Pros: It was well worth the price especially in NYC due to exaggerated pricing of car rentals there. I paid 133 for a few days well worth the price for a nissan versa. Our drop off was extremely fast and the driver that took us to the airport was extremely courteous. Overall my experience with them was good they treated their client well and the car was good.
Cons: The only thing I found a uncomfortable was the time spent waiting for a ride to get to the location where the rental car was.

Pros: The car didn't break down on the trip.
Cons: Far from the airport, shuttle service required a phone call and instructions were very confusing, shuttle was very slow to arrive, office was slow too, basically a portable trailer in a shady lot, lots of added fees and people returning cars being charged ridiculous amounts, required their insurance which they didn't even show terms/conditions of, they don't even show you the contract papers, they ask you to sign a blank iPad!! No good!! Car "upgrade" was filthy, dirty stained interior and smelled bad, brakes were not working very well once we got on the road. DO NOT RENT FROM THIS COMPANY. You might think a bigger company is more expensive but you'll pay less, they add all sorts of extra fees. SCAM!!! DO NOT RENT HERE!!!

You pay for what you get!
Pros: I loved the price.
Cons: The customer service at the rental office was horrible. The man was arguing with me about whether or not my insurance covered me in their car. I ended up paying for the insurance but later found that I am actually covered by my insurance in any car I enter...as I was trying to tell him, but he was arguing with me and I just wanted to leave ASAP and hit the road. Complete attitude problem. His assistant was much nicer and informative. The car was a hyundai automatic with no automatic windows or locks. It was very worrisome whether or not I would leave the car open. The car given was very poor quality. The mile restrictions area little unreasonable as well.

Cons: I specifically asked for unlimited miles when signing up for this car. However, when I got there they told me that I didn't have unlimited miles and that there would be an extra charge per mile. Then the representative from ACE called her manager to see if she could extend a few more miles per day. It wouldn't have been worth it and I ended up cancelling my reservation because they were clearly trying to upsell during a holiday. Not too mention the office did not open on time, 30 minutes late, and the representative carried her cigarette smell on her inside the office. An overall unprofessional experience. I made another reservation at another service that was half the price.

16 Dec 2016
Cons: I booked a car with unlimited miles, but when I got to the office, they told me I only had 200 miles per day, so if I drive more than 200 miles, I need to pay .25 cents an extra mile. Also, the cars do not have an E-Z pass, and they tried to sell me a very expensive insurance, they scared me that I have to pay $ 2,500 for the deposit if something is going to happen to the car, so I declined the reservation.
