Agent at check in deskPros:Very kind and helpful young woman at the check in desk. The shuttle driver also very personable.Reviewed 25 Apr. 2017

Pros:There was no notification that the location for drop off was closed due to weather. We drove through very treacherous weather to find them closed and had to drive an additional 10 miles to the airport.Reviewed 9 Jan. 2017

Could have been better about dropoff information accuracyPros:During pickup, one employee was very helpful and pleasant. Rate was correct and although car had close to 40000 miles on it, car ran well(but had stains inside and torn flooring).Cons:Told that since offsite at Portland airport and last Sunday shuttle was at 6:40 pm, I could return it after that at Budget or Avis. Since it was about 6:40 when I was near return, I went straight to Budget (also offsite). I had to wait in line of people picking up cars for about 15-20 minutes (was advised Budget couldn’t check car in like all othe rental companies at point of return), then waited about another 10-15 minutes for employee to confirm that Budget wouldn’t check in car and I’d have to go to Avis, drove to Avis (onsite) and had to go to office there and finally got it checked in. Made for a tighter run to catch plane than expected. Disappointing lack of coordination and helpfulness by Payless and BudgetReviewed 16 Jul. 2018

Great Value, Odd LocationPros:Quality vehicles, sharing fleet with Budget and Avis. Why pay more?Cons:The rather limited hours (7a-7p).are a bit of a drag. And it's 5 miles from the airport so expect a 10-15 min shuttle from the airport. It's a great deal if you live nearby!Reviewed 4 Jan. 2017

NOT at the Airport!Pros:Only upside was that a rep let us make special arrangements to drop off at the airport for the returnCons:Booked for pickup at PDX - when I booked and called was never told it wasn't located at airport. Had to take a 20+ minutes shuttle ride to the location where the directions we had were no longer good. Super hassle and no one there seemed phased by it.Reviewed 16 Feb. 2016

Pros:people were excellentCons:way over pricedReviewed 23 May 2018

Checkout was a disasterCons:The offsite location in Portland is nowhere near the airport. It was at least a 15-minute ride to the Payless location. There was one van - not a shuttle - taking people to the location, so there was always a line of customers. When we arrived at the rental location, there was only one person checking out cars. It took me 45 minutes to get my car with five people in front of me. There were at least that many people behind me in line. The car I got was a Chevy Impala (supposedly an update). It was mediocre in driving. This is my last business with Payless since the experience was not worth the lower price.Reviewed 11 May 2016

Bait and switch at best; credit fraud/lying is a regular thing.Cons:Wasting 2 hours trying to get a rental car because of some sort of credit problem. That’s funny, dollar only had to swipe my card once to work. You will never get the price you reserve online. This company is hoping you don’t want to waste time going back to the airport.Reviewed 1 Mar. 2018
