Advantage or Payless car rentals

I need to rent a mini van for 1 week in April at Fort Lauderdale airport. Advantage and Payless are significantly cheaper than the others. What has your experience been using either of these companies?

Any input would be great. Thanks.

Although not at FLL, we've used both companies without problems.

Check EZ Car Rental - we've used them all through Florida for years and have found them to be very good and quite a bit cheaper than the larger name brands. Good luck!

The only problem with Payless, which I've used in Orlando but not Fort Lauderdale, is that it was not located at the airport but required a shuttle ride. That can add at least 30 minutes onto the time it takes you to get into and out of the airport (longer if you get unlucky and have to wait for the shuttle). But Payless is often quite a bit cheaper, so the inconvenience may be worth it.

I'm not sure what the situation is with Payless at the Fort Lauderdale airport, however, as I've never rented a car there.

Advantage is also usually off-site.

Thanks very much for all your replies. I was a bit hesitant to use Advantage as I've read some bad reviews. I'll also take a look at EZ Car Rental.
