Pros: Good service and accomodating

Hassle free pickup!
Pros: When we arrived they didn't have any cars left so they put us in an SUV for the same price without any kind of hassle. The vehicle was clean and very well kept up. It was great to not have any hassles at all with the rental pickup and drop off! Thank you! They explained the insurance to us and took the time to go over all list of items we were getting with the rental.

28 Jan 2016
Great car but no service at drop point
Pros: The car I was driving which was excellent.
Cons: The side windows and outside mirrors were water speckled and difficult to see out of.
There was only one person outside the Punta Gorda car rental building (not identified as a Budget employee to drop the keys with. I will not drop a vehicle again unless it is an identified Budget employee. He could have been anyone.
1 Apr 2016
Cons: The seats in the car were stained and in need of a thorough cleaning. They were not even vacuumed as there were hairs all over the seats. For the prince I expect a clean car.
There was also no before or after check of the car for damage, making me very uncomfortable since the car had several dings and scratches when I picked it up.
23 Apr 2016
Pros: Return at FLL was remarkably easy & quick.
Weekly price was excellent.
Pros: They clearly just overbook and accept every booking even so they don't have the cars if everybody show up. Then they lie to you at the desk. Really bad experience. No car. I booked Avis next door for more money but better and more reliable service
Cons: They clearly just overbook and accept every booking even so they don't have the cars if everybody show up. Then they lie to you at the desk. Really bad experience. No car. I booked Avis next door for more money but better and more reliable service

Rental car to get me from SRQ to TPA.
Pros: Cordial counter representative. Fast response. Relatively quick check-out process.
Cons: Cars are across the street from the main terminal at SRQ and with the construction at the airport, it was a bit unsettling.
30 Sep 2016
Drop off at TPA excellent
Pros: Drive right to an attendant, they hand u ur final bill and then u walk to terminal. Took less than 5 min & they was 3 cars coming in for retention at one time.
1 Oct 2016
Pros: Easy pickup, short walk to vehicle. The staff was courteous, and explained the early drop off so we had no questions or issues.
Cons: The scare sell of insurance. I bought insurance online before the trip, so felt I was covered, but then got the bit about that insurance not being recognized by the rental agency, only theirs. How convenient. I have what I need, but you try to sell me something else that's 3X as expensive.

CSR guy at SRQ pick up was great....car was awful
Pros: Trying to find the car in the lot at SRQ was awful, I paced up and down that LOT IN THE HEAT..THE WAY THEY ARE NUMBERED AND LISTED/PARKED WITH OTHER CAR RENTAL COMPANIES WAS RIDICULOUS, AND I RECENTLY HAD A HIP REPLACEMENT. Car smelled and hesitates, and sputters, and I believe has a wheel bearing or allignment issue. Yuck!
Cons: The car was not ready on time and I had to wait half an hour. They were eager to offer me other cars for money. The person bringing the car around was extremely rude. The bluetooth connection on the car did not work.
7 Apr 2016
Pros: For alow budget car the Hyundai was pretty good.
Cons: The price in Sarasota was expensive.
7 Apr 2016
Pickup was 9 miles from the airport
Pros: Was not the regular on site rental location. Stood in line at the counter for 20min to find out it was actually at a tiny off site satellite office. Cost me a $35 taxi ride to get the car snd another $25 to allow me to drop it off at the airport upon return.
Pros: The gentleman at the Sarasota airport counter was very polite and accommodating! He did a great job getting me in and out of the rental process. Highly recommend Payless for weekly rentals. Car was clean and in great shape.
28 Mar 2016
Pros: Best pricing for sure....
Cons: Very slow service and didn't understand needing to wait in line @ drop off instead of a stream line check out.
25 Apr 2016
Very convenient and efficient.
Pros: Convenience with car pick up atthe airport lot just outside the exit doors.
Cons: The effort to sell extra insurance when my own personal insurance is adequate
1 May 2016
Pros: the vehicle for the price
Cons: the fact that I had to go into the terminal to return keys, while the competition had people at the parking area for dropoff
29 Aug 2016
Overall, not bad
Pros: Ease of making the reservation
Cons: I specifically rented from Payless to drive the car they advertise for the class of automobile I rented...they didn't have that when I arrived; the car could have been cleaner, inside and out; overall, not a bad experience at all, but definitely room for improvement.
Cons: Car shook and rattled when I drove it.
Smelled like smoke
Pick up location was not at addressed on email confirmation. The office had moved to airport.
10 Jan 2016
Pros: Super easy to drop off and pay. No wait.
5 Apr 2016
Cons: Old car on its last leg
13 Apr 2016
Pros: The review would be 5 stars all around, but they didn't have any cars when I arrived for my reservation. This was fixed within 5 minutes though, with excellent customer service. I had to drive a compact car instead of a mid-sized, but that ended up being ok. The agent gave me a little break on the price for this inconvenience. My total bill ended up being just over $90, including gas, for 3 days! Such a great price!
Cons: When I arrived there were no cars available. So I had a moment of panic, visiting other rental agencies. I got so lucky though, because somehow they found one for me only about 5 minutes later. A line began to form behind me, and I don't know what those people did... But my experience ended up being pretty awesome.
11 May 2016
Car requested not available.
Pros: Sarasota airport under construction changes. Rental car p/u outside in parking lot . Where to go not well defined, inside, at checkout, car requested not available. Ended up paying about $15 more for vehicle obtained. Only needed it for one day, picked up in Sarasota, dropped off in Orlando.
Cons: Vehicle requested not available, subject to up charge.
Agents were accommodating, but lack professionalis
Pros: Agent was able to reserve a vehicle for me for a different location than where I had originally reserved. The vehicle was comfortable, spacious, and easy to drive.
Cons: The cost of the rental was nearly double what I had been quoted online. The agents at the airport location were highly unprofessional and were carrying on personal (and inappropriate) conversations in front of customers.
16 Oct 2016
Pros: Did not interact with SRQ; changed drop off location. See comments above.
Cons: Did not interact with SRQ; changed drop off location. See comments above.
