  1. We had a bad experience with Payless at MIA back in 2003. I’ve never forgotten and never forgiven, even though I eventually got my money back from them.

  2. Payless! LOL, I have the same issue with Fox, what a joke, but the old adage, “You pay peanuts, you get monkeys”. Bugger the both of them, why would you bother renting from them? And every time I am in LAX and drive past the Payless and Fox trailers with lines of people out the door, I wonder what inspires people to even rent from these mongrels.

  3. Payless at LAS is a scam. They always try to overcharge and it’s on you to notice it. With so much litigation in this country, I’m really surprise car rental companies can get away with this.

  4. I’ve never had a problem with Fox, at least in Denver, over several rentals. We live near the airport and for about a year my wife’s car would break down and it would take me a few days to fix it, so we rented a car from Fox so she could still commute to work. Cars were always nearly new, so no problems there. Staff wasn’t the greatest, but I didn’t expect top notch service at those prices.
