Not greatPros:The check in/check out was goodCons:The car was older, 2014-15, it had been sprayed with cleaner a million times and it didn't have a fob for alarm, etc. it looked like an older company car. The money was good for the price but I wouldn't do it again. The nice thing about renting is testing out new cars and this was like test driving an old car with almost 50K miles on it.Reviewed 19 Sep. 2016

Good vehicle; counter personnel was lacklusterPros:The vehicle met my needs at a very good price.Cons:The counter agent looked disheveled and disinterested I was interested in purchasing the fuel and insurance options, but handed me the paperwork with everything marked declined (without asking). When I asked what the fuel option cost, he responded that he wasn't sure but he believed it was around $2.49/gallon. While it's possible that he was right, the price at the pump ranged between $1.85 and $1.99, so I believe he materially overestimated the cost so that I would not have him change the already printed paperwork. Further, he handed me keys with a form tapped to them noting that if I saw any damage larger than a quarter to mark it on the sheet and bring it back to him. I found several dents and scratches on the car (though non that likely exceeded the quarter-size threshold he specified), so I marked them and took the sheet inside. He took the sheet from me and I left. I later realized that I probably should have kept that sheet and have him initial it so that I kept the documentation that the car was received in that condition. All said -- my experience at the counter was below par, and I believe this staff would benefit from some additional training and a reminder that he plays a significant role in shaping the customer experience! Thank you for the opportunity to share my feedabck.Reviewed 17 Apr. 2016

Pros:Car was clean, new, and a good price.Cons:There aren’t Payless parking spots at BHM airport, so I parked it in an Enterprise spot upon returning. When I returned the keys to the Payless desk, the employee asked why I didn’t park it in the Avis section. Like wtf, get your own parking spaces or tell me to return to an Avis spot when I pick upReviewed 20 May 2019

Great with 1 exceptionPros:Renting a car from Payless was an overal great experience. Customer service was great, the car was clean, in great shape and comfortable.Cons:I asked to drop off in a different location and if there was a cost. I was told I have to bring the car back to that location only. Even though renting a car from Payless was an overal great experience, I might not be able to rent from Payless in the future due to this doesn't meet my overal needs if I need to drop the car in a different location but can't.Reviewed 11 Jul. 2016
