Pros:Simple and easy to use portal. All the details for every car type provided is very usefulCons:The rates of cars during holiday season is very high. Fro enga if I try to book for water now, I still see very high rates.Reviewed 21 Jan 2018

Felt like a scam of an experience during pickupPros:Drop-off was easy - had no problems with the car for the weekendCons:1) Took nearly 2 hours to get the car when we arrived at the pickup (which was off-site even though the website said "at terminal") About 75 minutes of this wait time was spent in line getting up to the counter. After getting all of the paperwork signed, took at least another 30 minutes to get the car "ready" for us. Process felt very dis-organized and chaotic 2) Once I was at the counter, I was told that because insurance was not selected during checkout (which would have been a reduced price), I would now need to pay a premium for that insurance at time of pickup. The price of insurance was 3x the price of the car for the weekend - which apparently could have been much less if bought online. This is a scam - there's no reason they shouldn't offer the same rate in person. 3) Was told that it was better to pay in USD instead of EUR - which turns out is also incorrect and ended up costing an additional % due to exchange rates. While this is something I should have been responsible for knowing, if they're going to offer advice it should at least be correct. 4) The car was about what we expected, no complaints about the vehicle itself. 5) Drop-off was fine and worked much smoother than pick-up. Long story short, I'll pay the premium (if there even is one) to rent from a more legit provider next time. Never doing Budget or Payless rentals again.Reviewed 7 Jun 2016

Need better insurance infoPros:Good simple car, really easy return processCons:The insurance requirements were not explained well at all for what was required for an Ireland rental. The prefacing was so poor that I'm still trying to decide if they sold me gold-plated insurance using scare tactics that exploited my lack of local knowledge. Dunno. Insurance per day was about the same as the advertised price of the rental, so the car ended up costing rental times number of days +1. Needless to say, this was surprising. Figure out how insurance works before you book.Reviewed 9 Jul 2017

Pros:Easy pick-up, great rate. Clean, comfortable vehicle. Staff generally friendly. Convenient shuttle to and from off-airport rental center.Cons:Difficult to find gas for fill-up near the return location. A bit of a wait to return and have deposit refunded. Some pressure to add insurance during pick-up.Reviewed 25 Oct 2016

Taken advantage of...Cons:The cost for the rental and the car I received were not equitable. I made a reservation with the estimated cost of $280 with the CDW for one week. The actual final cost was $445, which is not what I had budgeted for. But here is where they got me in that price: cost of rental for one week with a "standard size vehicle" - $85. Cost of insurance - $360?!? That's hidden cost scamming if you ask me. Additionally, when I got into the vehicle it immediately chimed with a notification of needing to be serviced. Not exactly comforting when renting it for a full week. The car (Opel insignia) was actually a decent car that was suitable to my needs for the week. But definitely not worth the cost as it was the base model with little extras to add to the value. Overall, in disappointed with my experience. I'll probably rent with Avis again next time.Reviewed 27 Apr 2017

InsurancePros:Great price.Cons:Poor customer service during check in. €780 insurance for two weeks... outrageous.Reviewed 25 Jul 2018

Never order from Payless...Pros:Nothing, except booking online, but it was irrelevant as the charges online are nothing compared to when you get to the counter itself to pick up the car.Cons:Rented a large car for over $80. was prepared for car to be around $250.00 with additional charges. However, when we got to the counter they wanted nearly 600 euro...we asked for a smaller car, but were told it would cost the same. It was total BS, so we ended up cancelling and not taking a car at all, and just spent about $100 on taxis for the 9 days. I will never rent from Payless again and i have rented so many cars, but never had such a bad experience at the counter.Reviewed 6 Mar 2017

PickupPros:Pickup not at the terminal - staff not helpful with directions to bus to car pickup. Make sure the gas tank is full before leaving the lotCons:Car comfortable - drop off quick and efficientReviewed 3 Jul 2016
review fromkayak
Bait and switchCons:We booked the car for roughly $10/per day. Upon arrival we were told the car requires $45/day in additional insurance. I've rented dozens of cars in different countries and never had this big of an issue. The expected cost of $70 ballooned to $332, which crushed our budget for visiting Ireland. Worst rental experience.Reviewed 8 Jul 2017
