4.0 OkayApr 2 2021
Pros: Price was $50 higher than the reservation.Cons: Lower price or a better car.
8.0 ExcellentMar 18 2021
Pros: Staff unable to check whether I could use AARP or AAA discounts at time of check-in. Said I needed a “code.” Or maybe a secret handshake?Cons: Rental vehicle did not have a snow brush snd it snowed 2 of the 5 days I rented the vehicle. Come on - it’s Minnesota March weather madness! I was clearing dude windows with my forearms!
8.0 ExcellentJan 5 2021
Pros: Drop off was easy. Pickup we were in a line of about 30 people. Men working hard & fast to get cars, but very backed up.
10.0 ExcellentOct 28 2020
Pros: Drop off was a breeze
8.8 ExcellentSep 17 2020
Cons: I drove from Minnesota to California which included very smoky areas near fires in Oregon and California. I wanted to make sure I had a good spare tire before I left. There wasn't a spare tire. The attendant said the rental cars don't have spares. He gave me a number to call if I needed assistance. The problem is there was no cell service in many areas. Getting a flat tire in the fire ravaged areas would have been very dangerous possibly deadly to my health. Spare tires should be in each vehicle!!
6.0 GoodSep 3 2020
Pros: Drop off was easy.Cons: The inside and outside was not clean - poor job with vacuum.
10.0 ExcellentAug 31 2020
Pros: Fast n easyCons: More large suv options
7.2 GoodAug 30 2020
Pros: Checkout procedure was about as fast as I've ever had it. Very simple and quick.Cons: I rented Ford Edge or similar, but got some Mitsubishi clunker. I think most people know Mitsubishi is not a quality car maker. You could tell right off that the car was not of great build quality inside and out. It got to where I needed to go, but pickup was poor and there some stutters with the transmission multiple times during the 3 day rental.
4.0 OkayAug 19 2020
Pros: The staff was friendly.Cons: We sat in the waiting area for over an hour while the vehicle we reserved WEEKS prior was “being cleaned.” After repetitive asking the employee offered different types of vehicles. I was on a cycling trip and needed a pick up truck and eventually left with a mini van. What is the purpose of the reservation system if the vehicle type i asked for is not available? Also this is Covid, people aren’t traveling - where are the vehicle selection choices?
10.0 ExcellentAug 14 2020
Cons: Nothing. Quick, easy and a great experience!

Cons: The cars werent ready people were waiting for hours to get their cars. I gave up and went to Alamo which had cars now and even cheaper than my rev. With thrifty. I will never use thrift again.
6.0 GoodMay 3 2021
Pros: Drop-off was super easyCons: Reservation at 5pm, got there at 5:15, car wasn’t ready until almost 7:00. Car was not cleaned well.
4.0 OkayApr 20 2021
Pros: good pick upCons: Drop of manager was not helpful with my complaints. Car smelled of smoke. No rear seatbelt. To Small. Gas was not full.
2.0 MediocreApr 19 2021
Cons: The line at the airport rental desk was 20 people deep. we waited 15 minutes and no one in line moved. perhaps there was some trouble, but we did not see anyone leave the desk to get their rental car. there were 3 agents at the desk. we decided that it would be better to get a lLyft to take us from the airport to our destination, 40 miles away. The cost of the Lyft from and back to the airport was less than the cost of the rental car. There was no way to modify or change the rental, so I lost $145. Next time we will just use Lyft.
2.0 MediocreApr 13 2021
Cons: Waited almost 2 hours to get the rental car

4.0 OkayJun 18 2021
Cons: Everything
2.0 MediocreMar 5 2021
Cons: I got a letter 3 weeks after the return that claimed I smoked in the car and there was excessive smoke smell. I did not smoke, never have smoked in my life. They are charging me $450 and I have petitioned their customer service multiple times. They keep escalating it to another bureaucratic level of the business to hand off the problem to the next customer service representative. I will be reporting them to the Better Business Bureau and I will be filing a consumer fraud report to the Attorney General's Office of Illinois. This company has absolutely committed fraud and is trying to find a way to book extra revenue. I will never do business with the Avis Budget group (the company that owns Payless) ever again.
8.0 ExcellentAug 14 2020
Pros: nothing in particularCons: nothing in particular
7.6 GoodJun 16 2020
Pros: Staff was friendly and professional at both pick-up and drop-offCons: At pick-up they switched to a different vehicle which was an "upgrade" to a mid-sized SUV for the same price. Appreciated that, but once I left MSP I realized that the vehicle had not been washed or re-filled with gas, and so the Fuel light went on almost immediately (36 miles left). So I had to immediately gas up. The net of this was that I returned the vehicle with 150 miles left, and therefore bought more gas than I actually used. I documented the issue on the day of pickup and took a photo of my gas purchase...so at least I didn't get hit with a fuel surcharge. But it would have been better for things to have been done right from the start.
9.2 ExcellentMar 17 2020
Pros: Staff was friendly, especially the drop-off staff. Car was clean and operated well.Cons: Pickup process was a bit slow. The counter guy didn't actually call for the car until I arrived at the counter. It obviously wasn't ready when I got there.
5.6 OkaySep 12 2019
Pros: Pick up and drop off were AWFUL. Told they would bring the car to us. 10 people standing around waiting. Took over 30 minutes to get the car. Return just as bad. Numerous people just walked away leaving their cars as there was NO ONE there to check them back in.Cons: Pick up and drop off experience. Need more people to do this. Not enough staff .
9.2 ExcellentAug 26 2019
Pros: The pick-up and drop off was very convenient. There was less of a line than other vendors, and only a short wait for the car to be made available. Location of pick-up and drop off very convenient at the airport.Cons: They didn't specify drop off details, we just assumed it was the same location as pick-up. With the construction it's a maze to get in and out of rental location with the car.
2.4 MediocreAug 24 2019
Cons: First car we picked up was not in good mechanical condition. Wasted 2 hours of my time returning for a new car. Next car was filthy with dirty window and smelled li cigarettes.
9.6 ExcellentAug 22 2019
Cons: No fuss. Reps were courteous and helpful.

4.0 OkayMay 30 2021
Pros: 2nd car was okCons: First car smelled of smoke and had a confusing fuel gauge.
2.0 MediocreMay 23 2021
Pros: They had a carCons: I reserved a mid size pickup for almost $200 a day and was given a ‘managers choice’ vehicle. So for $200 a day I drove the smallest car they had- a Chevy Spark. It was a complete ripoff.
4.0 OkayMay 18 2021
Cons: I paid for a large SUV ahead of time and when I arrived to pick up my car, I was told there were none in stock and I would have to pay to “upgrade” to a minivan. This doubled the price of my rental. It was infuriating to pay for a reservation only to be told it wasn’t available and I would have to pay more.
2.0 MediocreMay 18 2021
Cons: Location at terminal closed, no signs to tell you where to go. Ordered a full size SUV and was provided a small suv. When questioned about full-size I was told, because it had 7 seats, it was full sized. Will never be renting from dollar again.
6.0 GoodJan 28 2021
Cons: Only negative comment is there was taxes and fees that were not mentioned when renting through kayak...around $200.
5.6 OkayJan 26 2020
Pros: The car is what I liked and the call centerCons: The service, the renting policy before showing up, the customer service reps there need more training and learn how to talk to people I got sent away 3 times times to getting a car and money wasn’t the issue horrible 1st time renting a car in my 26 years of life.
8.4 ExcellentSep 2 2019
Pros: YES! Took time to help me get oriented to driving this hybrid car! Yes; very easy, patient, & helpful.Cons: Being able to contact a live person quickly when I'd made a mistake re/ the insurance coverage. Could not figure out how to get AM radio reception on the Ford Fusion!
10.0 ExcellentApr 10 2019
Pros: Everything was very smooth, especially drop off.Cons: The woman who checked condition of car before we exited was a little over the top thorough, which is good if you want to be sure you don't get charged for something you didn't do, but not so good if you're eager to get going.
10.0 ExcellentSep 11 2018
Excellent value!Pros: The staff were friendly and efficient. I was in and out in a few minutes. The car was also great! Very satisfied overall.

Pros: Staff was friendly once I finally got through the lineCons: Took forever (2 hours) to get the car. Then I was charged an extra day for returning an hour late.
10.0 ExcellentMay 14 2021
Pros: Pick up was simple. Counters were understaffed but our flight was delayed so we were over an hour late. So not their fault. Drop off was very easy.Cons: Better communication as to where to pick up the car. We went to the other side of the airport only to find we had to go to the other terminal. After a long flight last thing my 9 year old and I wanted was to walk to the rental counter area to find it was closed with signage we had to go all the way to the other side of the airport to pick up our rental.

9.6 ExcellentNov 26 2019
Pros: Friendly staff, free upgrade when reserved vehicle was unavailable.Cons: Need to be able to contact Avis MSP directly for Lost and Found. Need option for reporting items left at Avis office. Young son forgot blue backpack with tablet computer, gift books, and art supplies. It has not yet been found. Lost and Found ID 12359969.
8.4 ExcellentNov 14 2019
Pros: Yes, the staff was very friendly and helpful. I think that the wait in line was longer than it needed to be. But overall the experience was pleasant given that I wasn't in a hurry.Cons: I think that the pricing should be more upfront and transparent. And after all of the fees nearly $400 was a little steep for only two days with the car. Finally, the pick up area was a valet and it wasn't well marked where I should wait. Given that the temperature was in the teens, that was an important point.
5.2 OkayJul 2 2019
Cons: When I got there they didn't have the cat I reserved. They ended up getting me something that could work but it was $250 more. Also if you're coming to the airport to rent a car but you didnt fly in it's a nightmare to get there.
8.8 ExcellentJun 18 2019
Pros: Super easy to change my trip and drop off early at a different location, that was extra convenient for meCons: Time to deliver rental car could have been quicker, did not know that I would have to be preferred or whatever it’s called to have the vehicle ready to go. Our flight was delayed and if the rental car was ready to go we would have saved a valuable 10-20 minutes

Cons: I was charged an extra $107.00 for something. I still have no idea what it was for and the receipt, which was emailed to me, does not disclose the reason for the charge.
