Payless Car Rental was founded in 1971 in Spokane Washington. Since then it has grown to over 120 rental locations in major airports in the U.S., Canada, Europe and South America. Building it’s reputation on great customer service with price-conscious travelers in mind, Payless became noticed and eventually acquired as a subsidiary of one of the car rental industry’s best-known companies, the Avis Budget Group.
Using Expedia to reserve a rental car from Payless online, you can take advantage of the best deals and a wider selection of vehicles to choose from. When you reserve in advance, you can also rest easy, knowing all you need to do when you reach your destination is collect your rental car.
Payless car rentals are quick and easy, but you might still want to know the basics before you get started here they are.
The renter must be 25 yrs of age with a valid driver's license and a major credit card in his/her own name.
In the U.S., the minimum age to rent a vehicle is 21 years of age. Payless’ policy, like most rental car companies, for renters 21-24 years of age states that the vehicle choice will be limited to certain types and there is a per day surcharge. *The underage surcharge will not appear in total pricing on the reservation.
The selection of cars you can choose from will depend on the location you’re looking to rent in. In the U.S. you can expect similar vehicle classes to other car rental companies. Payless carries Economy models, SUVs, convertibles, luxury options, along with vans and pickups. An example of an economy model might be the Hyundai Accent, or you could go for a more upscale choice, such as a Ford Mustang Convertible or a Chrysler 300.
Naturally, showing your valid driver’s license is non-negotiable. Credit cards are also non-negotiable in some locations, although in others you will be able to pay by debit card however, you may need proof of address or an airline ticket to do so.
Requirements outside the US vary, but you’ll always need to show your passport. Find out in advance if the country you are visiting is one that requires an international driving permit for US citizens.
