Description lied. Not on site at terminal.Cons:I specifically booked this rental which was a few dollars more than others because the description indicated the car could be picked up at the terminal. However, Payless was one of the only companies not on site at the terminal. We ended up waiting about 20 minutes for a shuttle which ended up being a 15 passenger van that everyone was crammed into. Once we got to the rental facility the process was relatively quick but I was rather disappointed by the car which was an older model Impala with 40k miles, paint damage, and manual door locks. I will be going with one of the major national brands in the future.Reviewed 24 Oct. 2016

Pros:They didn’t have an employee at the counter. 50 people didn’t get their cars. Sent to Avis and Budget for cars, or to other vendors. They are involved in a bait and switch.Cons:Avoid them completely.Reviewed 20 Mar. 2021

Never againCons:I rarely write reviews, but my experience was so terrible I feel obligated. I reserved a car with a planned pick up time of 11pm. My flight landed at 11 and the desk was in the terminal. Made it to the counter by 11:20 to find a sign stating that they were closed, with a phone number to call between the hours of 4am and 11pm for assistance. This clearly wasn't going to be useful to me, but I tried calling anyway with no answer. I was left without a car for my 50 minute commute and the other rental counters had limited availabilities and/or no price matching. This was such an inconvenience and was exacerbated by the fact that it was late and I was traveling alone. They should have never given the option for an 11pm pick up time if they intended to close at 11. I will never rent from this company again.Reviewed 15 Aug. 2016

Pros:The price was the best, shuttle arrived in a timely manner plus their facility is about 5 minutes from the Reno airport! So worth the cost savings from those other guys! The driver was very nice & the shuttle was warm. When I was dropped off, in front of my car, the heater was on so I didn't have to get into a frozen car! I really appreciated that! The driver directed me to the freeway ramp which was sweet. When I dropped the car off the same driver greeted me to drive back to the airport. I was there for my brothers funeral & he remembered...The cost of the rental was the best deal the customer service was great. I would rent from Payless again in aReviewed 13 Dec. 2018

Pros:I can’t rate a company for which I never received a car fromCons:Everything. Starting with being present to provide the car in which I reserved instead of sending me on a wild goose chase to another company to have it fulfilled.Reviewed 25 May 2021

Pros:Good price. Problem was they rented me a front wheel drive car to go into the mountains in February. I was sliding around quite a bit and with the 'anti slip' feature almost got stuck a couple of times. Unfortunately on the last night there was a winter storm and I could no longer drive the car.Cons:When I had to call road side assistance several times to setup a tow I really had some bad experiences with their customer service. There was no empathy for my situation and if I didn't call back several times the car would still be in the garage...Reviewed 27 Feb. 2019

Overall Mediocre, would not recommend.Pros:Had to book a car last minute and this was the best price. Staff was helpful and friendly. Close location to airport, car ran fine and without issue (Kia Rio).Cons:Car smelled like they tried too hard to hide a previously smoked-in smell, dirty car outside and inside.Reviewed 14 Jan. 2017

Airport Terminal?!?!?!Cons:One of the pieces of information that I like is to know that the car is on airport and that I don't have to take a shuttle. Well this Payless at Reno Airport says its on airport but its not, as told to me by the agent, "the counter is in the airport." Well that's not what on airport means. There are other rental car companies that are. This is false advertising and should be stopped.Reviewed 22 Mar. 2017
