Pros:The whole operation was very understaffed but the people I dealt with, particularly a young man in ABQ, were very helpful and polite. The drop-off was the same, the lot at DEN was closed, which made me nervous about missing my flight. There was no indication anywhere that I was to go to the Avis lot for drop-off. Again, nobody to explain anything but when the woman showed up, she was polite and helpful in a difficult situation for her.Reviewed 10 May 2020

Pros:I upgraded on sight to Chevy for just 30$ extra. Drop-off was very fast/Cons:Although the car was bran new it still did not have GPS. It should be basically free with integrated into new cars. Thy just want to charge extra for that!Reviewed 30 Mar. 2016

Pros:Absolutely nothingCons:Unbelievably slow, but that was only the beginning. The agent said my (only) card was being declined, twice. Called my bank, Payless had not been declined, hadn't even connected. I stood in line behind one person for a further 45 minutes, and this time the agent said they had a new "system", and it couldn't read my card! He suggested I try another rental company, so I tried, but cost was exorbitant. So after TWO AND A HALF HOURS trying to rent a car, almost all of it spent at the Payless desk, I decided to use a taxi. It was a good decision. They were cheaper than a car would have been, even Payless, prompt and courteous. This is the second time I've tried unsuccessfully to rent a car from Payless at ABQ, and for sure the last.Reviewed 23 Nov. 2015

So far off the mark.........Pros:Easy return.Cons:1. Long line at the rental desk - with just ONE employee working there at the time. 2. They had NO (zero) cars available EXCEPT ONE Nissan Frontier mid-size pick-up truck. (I had reserved a compact car). The two renters in line ahead of me were told they could wait for a car to become available - or go to another car rental desk. 3. I chose to take the pick-up truck as I did not have the luxury of waiting an unknown amount of time for a compact. The rental price was the same as my compact reservation price, but I ended up paying a LOT more for gas.Reviewed 15 Nov. 2016

Pros:decent care for a reasonable priceCons:at pick-up sales person tried to sell me an upgrade, then added some kind of roadside emergency coverage without my consent ($4.99/day), and misinformed me about local gas prices hoping to entice me to purchase pre-pay gas option. The cost shown on my original reservation was $205 and the initial contract the agent printed up was $275. I hate this kind of nickel-dime stuff at the desk and he had to redo the contract to remove the roadside emergency coverage that he hadn't mentioned and thought I wouldn't notice which cost me time at the counter. I know employees are trained in these deceptive practices and find it deplorable.Reviewed 22 Feb. 2016

Pros:New Mexico was short on rental cars during Memorial Day weekend and I was a bit nervous when we had to rent from Budget because their reviews were the lowest. However, this was my best car rental experience by far. The customer service was amazing, the facility is in close proximity to the airport, the return process was a breeze. By far, this was one of my best rental experiences.Reviewed 31 May 2021
