I rented a "car" from Payless from Friday morning 12/8 - Monday morning 12/11. I had a horrible experience with them and will never rent from them again! When I got to the RDU counter to pick up my reservation, nobody was there. Eventually, the agent for Avis showed up...Read more

- Customer service was minimal and never followed up
- 4 hour wait for car replacement
Payless Car Rental - Worst car rental company!!!
Shuttle brought us to a site at mlps near Humphtey. Car was rediculously overpriced ($95 per day for a Ford Fusion). They included airport fees, even though we were miles from the terminal. Rental car was only 1/2 full of gas. They gave us a Nissan in exchange - it reeked of cigar and cigarette smoke after the heater was on and we were down the road. Car had not been started, frost on all surfaces, not prepped at all prior to pickup. This is a junior league, rip off operation!!!

Car did not start day 4 of 4 day rental. Billed credit card $564. The estimate was $202. Charged towing and additional day in addition to other added fees. 30 days later attempting to charge $60 and $55.14 with no explanation. Customer serviCe opens ticket number then closes with no contact. Rented from another company day 4 for another $212 because Payless could not provide another car where I was.

They told my wife her car wasn't available and she must get insurance, Lie, lie, lie. This company is great at bait and switch as well as selling you unnecessary insurance and claiming your own insurance company won't cover it! Originally reserved an intermediate car...Read more
Payless at Cancun. Car was crap and they made bogus damage claims. Stay away!! The car was a death trap in the rain at night, no visibility. The people who worked there are trained crooks who make money by making you pay for non existent damage. It is in a remote area,...Read more

I went online to book a rental car and the website stated a charge could not be made on my card. There is no reason for that, so I figured I typed in the wrong card number. I got the message again so I went to another company and rented a car no problem. Then I looked...Read more
