St Petersburg, FL (PressExposure) February 09, 2011 -- While some may shudder to think of day to day life without access to a personal car, truck, SUV, etc. and the benefits they confer make this understandable. Unfortunately, due to the economic slump, many more are seeing the trials and tribulations of life without ready access to a vehicle. While public transportation, biking and taxis are all offered as alternatives to walking, they introduce a host of new problems that many would rather avoid. This is where car rental agencies stepped in, Payless Car Rental primary among them, offering rates as low as $10 per day in some cities, a price rivaling daily bus fare, or the cost of a taxi for a small handful of blocks. Pedestrian citizens have been taking the cue, utilizing the rental services for tasks varying from supermarket visits to sporting events, and early reports seem quite satisfied with the service. Industry tools to help customers have also expanded for rental agencies in the modern information age, with Payless offering an online check of the local car stock, for example. Car rental may not be the next big wave of local transport, but it is providing a very progressive and useful stepping stone for a number of customers.
