Pros: price was excellent
Cons: pick up was slow and car wasn't ready.
Cons: The location closed before I was able to pick up my reserved vehicle. When I called the next day, the company would not honor my reservation rate.
Pros: When I arrived, two customers before me had issues with being charged more than what they booked. Once I made it to the counter the same thing happened to me. They seem to add on several fees that were not known in advance. Crooked rental car company! I'm surprised that the San Diego Airport allows them to do business there. Stay away from Payless or you will end up paying more than what you thought. Their name should be PayMore Rental Car Company.
Cons: Car was terrible
Pros: The car ran
Cons: The amount of money they really charge you? It’s ridiculous - the car was so basic. For the amount of money I paid - and the amount they “held” on it? It should have come with a chauffeur. I won’t rent from Payless again
Pros: Staff very helpful, polite, and doing the best they can with the junk they have.
Cons: Minivan was in bad shape. Tires out of balance. Messy from previous renter.... Checkout/turn-in took a long time(about 20 minutes).
Cons: They will be friendly but aggressive in trying to up-sell you at the counter. Decline the option to have them fill the tank. Unless you're going to spend all your time driving, the odds are next to zero that you will even come close to bringing it back empty. It is a waste of money. The line that "gas got so expensive here, our rates are so much cheaper than off the airport" must be something that is taught to every counter agent, because I hear it in every city. And it is completely false in every city. Don't let them bamboozle you. It's just not that big a thing to top off the tank on the way back to the airport. And you don't need to get their insurance. Check with your insurance carrier about rental coverage, and often credit cards have this as a benefit (I know Frontier MasterCard does). Rule of thumb -- the harder they try to up-sell you something, the less you likely need it. Happy trails!
Pros: Staff was very friendly.
Cons: They thought the upgraded vehicle would be adequate, but it was not.
Pros: Not that much, really.
Cons: Check in was fine, but the check in guy said he was upgrading me at no extra charge and when I got the car, it was the basest of the base model. I rejected it and they took me a minimal step up. The car itself was very basic. Definitely NOT the usual rental car experience where you get a car with a at least a few bells and whistles, as has ALWAYS been my experience with decades of renting cars. Part of the point of dealers providing decent cars to rental companies is for someone to enjoy it so much they may consider buying one. This car was just barely ok. It (Nissan Sentra) lacked power and made a little bit of a clunking noise. I really didn't like it at all.
Pros: Staff was courteous helpful and friendly Process was simple
Cons: Cars smelled and was not clean enough
Pros: Helpful staff. Expeditious process.
Cons: Nicer cars.
