Payless Car Rental is a big-name brand in its own right, and is also owned by one of the car rental industry’s best-known companies, the Avis Budget Group. Payless’ roots go back to 1971, when the first Payless store opened its doors in Spokane, Washington. Today, there are Payless car rental stores in 20 countries across the world. Being so firmly established, Payless is a brand that can be trusted with car rentals for all your vacations and other trips. Orbitz lets you reserve a rental car from Payless online, taking advantage of great online deals and a wider range of cars. 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.
This very much depends on the country or state you’ll be renting in, but as a general rule of thumb, 21 is the minimum age. For those aged under 25, car choice is usually limited to certain models, and you will almost always have to pay a surcharge.
It’s worth checking in advance to find out if there are upper age limitations or mature driver surcharges in the location you’ll be renting in, although this isn’t the case at US branches of Payless.
The selection of cars you can choose from will depend on the location you’re looking to rent in. Most Payless sites will have economy models, as well as SUVs, convertibles, and vans and pickups.
A typical economy model might be the Hyundai Accent, or you could go for a more upscale choice, such as a Ford Mustang Convertible.
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.
