Cons: Payless IS NOT "In Terminal" as advertised, rather requires a shuttle to and from the airport. There are many "In Terminal" car providers, to include National, Alamo, Hertz and Avis. Payless is not one of them. They also overcharge your card requiring a customer to prepay for fuel. Never will I use them again.

do not rent a car from here!
Pros: I didn't like anything about this place.
Cons: As soon as I started the vehicle on the pay less lot the low tire pressure light came on as well as the change oil light. I drove off the lot at the assistance of my dad. I had paid for the rental for a week, dropped it off a day early and it got a low tire while in the lot. I was not refunded a daily rate nor was I refunded the daily insurance rate. I was also told that as soon as you sign the paperwork that you are signing responsibility of the vehicle to maintain like it's your own. She was very rude and then had me fill out an incident report. I never got refunded.

Cons: The first car they gave us had a tire that was bald down to the steel. While they were quick and easy about giving us a second car, this task took valuable time from our brief visit to our dying father.

In the end, they made it right.
Pros: Good customer service. Despite the initial shortcomings, they ultimately made it right in the end and ensured we were satisfied and in a safe vehicle. Prompt shuttle service to/from airport.
Cons: Booked online as 'Ford Focus or equivalent'. Told at time of pickup from airport that it's actually for a Ford Fiesta or similar compact car, which is much smaller than a Focus/equiv and was not what I had booked the rental under. Clerk made it right and gave us a free upgrade to that size range of vehicle. When we were presented with vehicle, Hyundai Elantra, front tires were at wear bars. Seeing as it's front wheel drive and we anticipated snow, this would not work. Looked at two other equivalent vehicles, tires also bald, some well beyond wear bars. Inquired about a different vehicle, small Jeep crossover with good tires all around, and employee offered it as free upgrade.

Great service with Reno Payless!
Pros: The Payless service was excellent. I really appreciated that they had a shuttle that would come pick me up/drop me off without having to wait for a long time. It came immediately when I needed it!
Cons: I wasn't a fan of the car, itself, but that has nothing to do with the Payless service, which is what I value more when renting a car.
17 Nov 2015
Cons: The vehicle smelled like someone made been smoking in it.
24 Nov 2015
Pros: Upgraded to an SUV thinking it was 4x4; however, it wasn't. Payless took the upgrade charge off without even questioning. I appreciated their kind and fair service.

Beware: Counter closes at 11pm, despite letting yo
Cons: I booked the car for 11pm pickup but the counter was closed at that time. All other rental agencies were still open. There was a piece of paper with a number to call for after hours, I tried calling this number at least 20 times and nobody answered or called me back.
Avoid Payless at all cost.
3 Apr 2016
Cons: I was charged for the basic insurance on top of the insurance I purchased at the time of reservation - I will be calling to see if this can be reversed.
5 Apr 2016
Cons: Couldnt rent my bank card that ive been a customer for 10 year's according to u guys didnt pass credit but my credit union that i have had for 9 months accepted but didnt have all the money on card. So payless said no went to dollar rental and the bank card that supposedly said no said yes there. I feel they should do over phone and tell you that. Lost a awesome customer rent cars often.
Cons: Somehow Budget always seems to come up with these crazy tax fees and obsurdly overpriced "misc charges". They are not a company with integrity. I will no longer rent from them. And I rent a hell of a lot!

Pros: Quick easy check in
Cons: Everything was great no complaints
5 Jan 2016
Pros: Proximity of car counter and cars
Cons: Politeness and honesty of front desk staff (Cole) who added a significant daily upgrade fee and a minimum duration to the contract without notifying us
24 Feb 2016
Cons: My flight got diverted from Reno to Sacramento. I explained this to the Budget representative as I was waiting in baggage claim and she said there was nothing she could do and that it would be over $600 to pick up in Sacramento--more than 3 times the price I had booked online. So I cancelled the reservation and booked from another rental company for the same price I originally got online. Seems like a bad business policy by Budget.
28 Feb 2016
Pros: I wasn't allowed to rent without a cedit card.
29 Feb 2016
Pros: After waiting for about 8 groups to get their car delivered to them, we go upgraded to a vehicle that was sitting in the garage. It was a more suitable vehicle for our trip.
Cons: They had one older gentleman walking to get the vehicles, and there were about 8 parties waiting for cars. Very inefficient.

Pros: We loved everything about our rental Thank you

Clean up the car before you rent it again!
Pros: Friendly staff.
Cons: The Budget staff behind the counter at the Reno airport where helpful, but I ended up not getting the car I had reserved - a compact because of the limited choices/availability. So then we tried an SUV but found the one we had selected had an open recall so that went back on the shelf. Ultimately I ended up with a slightly discounted Luxury car for my four day trip. When I did finally get the car, it was dirty on the inside and only slightly better on the outside.

Cons: Changed me for an extra full Day for being 59mins late.

ended up costing 2x what I had expected
Pros: nice truck
Cons: endless fees brought the total cost to 2x what I was originally expecting
Cons: The agent who rented us the vehicle was not knowledgable about the care or what we as a customer needed. She flat out lied to us. The vehicle was horrible smelling; so much so I put my jacket on the back seat and it smelled so bad I had to plastic baggy it to pack in my suitcase and was without a jacket. We drove around in freezing temps with the windows down because it was so bad, for the 3-4 days we had it. I febreezed it and they didn't even help!
The entire experience was bad. They refunded part of our $ but doesn't make up for having to go to my own wedding in a smelly dress and jacket. Won't rent from them again. Totally ruined my trip.
