    Upon arriving at the Payless counter for our scheduled pickup time, the Payless employee was nowhere to be found for about 35 minutes. He eventually showed up late to work without an apology or explanation. Very disappointing.

    Payless Car Rental Policies

    Major international car rental suppliers, such as Payless, commonly have a multitude of rental policies that travelers should keep in mind while planning their next trip behind the wheel of a rental car. While specific, local policies will vary depending on the pick-up country of your rental reservation, below is a collection of typical rental car policies that you will encounter across most rental destinations.

    Payless Car Rental Age Policy

    Operating out of countless destinations worldwide, travelers will find that Payless Rent a Car's driving age policy can greatly vary depending on your rental reservation's respective pick-up location. Although some policy details are location specific, Payless typically operates with the industry standard policy of setting their minimum driving age between the ages of 18-25 (depending on local driving laws). Drivers under the age of 25 are additionally subjected to a young driver surcharge, which is daily fee charged locally and ranges from $5 - $15 per day. For detailed information on the driving age requirements at your Payless rental car pick-up location, be sure to look through the "Rate Details" section in Auto Europe's booking engine as you go through the car rental booking process. Lastly, for even further information, please refer to our guide to rental car age requirements in specific countries.

    Payless Fuel Policy

    Payless Car Rental Rate DetailsWhen renting a vehicle with Payless, you will come across two industry standard fuel policies. The first is the standard policy to pick-up and return your rental car with a full tank of fuel and incur locally determined refueling charges, in the event that you do not return your rental vehicle with a full tank of fuel. The second policy that Payless offers is a Fuel Purchase Option (FPO). Travelers can purchase an FPO at the time of pick-up and it allows travelers to return their rental vehicle without a full tank of fuel - without additional refueling fees. Regardless of which fuel policy you decide to opt for during your Payless rental car experience, we recommend that you re-fuel your vehicle before returning your rental to Payless.
