    Birthday week…Best shuttle service ever!
    Arrived at Long Beach for my birthday week and we could not leave the airport because my sister's bag did not arrive with her flight. Kim and Kendra were amazing and understanding about our delay. Although we had to pay for our first shuttle that was at the airport on time to pick us up, they worked with us to make sure that we had the documentation we needed to be reimbursed by the Airlines. And they arranged for another shuttle to come and pick us up at a later time so we could wait at the airport for our luggage to arrive. The car that we were picked up in was clean and had enough legroom for me to sit comfortably in the back, being a tall person this is super important to me. Kim our driver was very pleasant. And mayI add for the same cost as an Uber or a Lyft you experience door to door car service, affordable and worth every penny! :) I would totally recommend the shuttle service, Payless Airport Shuttle service if you if you are ever in Long Beach, CA! Five stars all the way!!!!

    Booked a one way shuttle from Carnival Long beach Port to LAX, communicated with us just before we debark until we got to their location. Arrive LAX in a timely manner. I would recommend Payless Shuttle, and use them again.

    Helped me when another company cancelled!
    Loved the personal attention from Payless. I had booked with another company and the day of my flight, they cancelled due to "no driver availability". I was left to scramble to find a shuttle for me & my family. When I called Payless, they said they would need to confirm before they book it. They called back in 5 minutes and confirmed it, and they were excellent. Received a text/call when I landed in LAX. Received the same text message when my return ride was at my hotel. I'll stick with using Payless!

We were quoted $135 for our trip. the van showed up and smelt terrible like urine. The woman drove so pourly we all got car sick. Upon drop off she charged us $190 after we paid cash tip (which she didnt deserve). when questioning the added charge they said it was $175. So nothing about the pricing adds up. Avoid to all extreme. For a CLEAN, accurate and professional service try anaheim town car service!!

I booked this transportation for a group of 10 from Long Beach to the Port and back. Great Service to port but on return to airport, driver got mixed up and started taking group to LAX instead of Long Beach. Got to airport a little later than the group would have liked but they made their flights. Other than this small glitch, everything was great. Would definately use them again but would verify they were going to correct place to avoid this confusion.

The good -

Booking was relatively painless. We booked through email and then called to give them a credit card number to hold the reservation. They do not run the credit card on file. They charge your physical card at pick-up. They offer a clean shuttle and clean car seats with no visible damage for your kids. They arrived within 10 minutes for each of our trips that we used them. That is okay. I would prefer not to wait for the shuttle, but 10 minutes isn't bad.

The bad -

Both return trips we booked a particular pick up time. On both trips the driver called asking to come early. The first trip we flat out said no and he acquiesced and picked us up at the agreed upon time. The second trip he tried to make it sound like traffic would cause us to be late. Since we are not from the area we chose not to argue. He tried to pick us up over four hours before our flight and we were a short 11 minute drive away from the airport. Thankfully, we were able to delay him another 30 minutes, but we still ended up at the airport three and a half hours before our flight. Traffic was clearly an issue in the other direction of travel on the highway. This is obviously something they do on a regular basis and I don't appreciate spending the end of my trip arguing with the shuttle company over pick up time so they can fit something else into their schedule.

Needless to say, I will be shopping for another shuttle company.

Hi Jessica. Thank you for your feedback. Our drivers do arrive early for their pickup's and alert passengers when they do just in case they are ready to leave early. However our driver waited patiently for your pickup time. Just checking our confirmation of your last reservation with us, you did schedule a pickup time 3 hours before your scheduled flight. We understand you may have set that much time because of having many kids that require 4 child car seats (that we were able to supplied), you needed the extra time cushion. We do appreciate your business both times and hope we can earn your business back.

We recently used Payless to transfer from LAX to the San Pedro pier to catch a cruise. They were prompt and efficient and the van was very clean. The driver was very curtious.
They pick you up just outside the terminal doors.
They charge $75.00 one way which is less expensive than a cab.
We would definately use them again

I believe the name of this place is Pay for no service, pay for nothing? Crappy customer service, was charged $76 for nothing. I did receive short response saying no exceptions with cancellation. Do not use this service if you are not 100% going to use it. Things change, this company doesn't get it...

I booked two separate bookings. The first one they didn’t turn up because I didn’t confirm when I tried to ring all I got was an answer phone so I had to pay for an Uber. The second book was to take up to a theme park that was closed due to bad weather but I still got charged. Everytime I sent the company an email I got a smart answer back quoting their terms and conditions. They have no common sense. Don’t use this company they are hard to get hold of if anything goes wrong or you want to change anything.

My 5 year-old son and I were picked up right on the dot and dropped in less than an hour to LAX. A booster seat was provided as per my request. When I had tried to book other shuttle, no car seat was provided and child would be turned down. It was a little more expensive but felt worth as I didn’t have to drag a carseaf that I didn’t need beyond the airport and we were taken straight to the airport without having to suffer picking several people along the road as other companies! Totally worth it and will definitely use it again!

I made reservations for shuttle service for six from the Long Beach Cruise Terminal to our hotel near LAX. We weren't certain what time we would be able to leave the ship, so the lady I talked with suggested we put down 11:00 in the morning and call them if we were able to get off earlier. For some reason, they were not calling for passengers to leave the ship for several hours. Payless kept in touch with texts. When I saw we were not going to make our 11:00 departure, I told them to wait to send a driver until I notified them. When we finally made it down to customs, I sent them a text and they told me our driver was waiting. They said his name was Chris and he was in a white van with the number 21. When we got off the ship, we walked directly to the van, he loaded our luggage, and we were on our way. I know he must have waited for over an hour. We really didn't expect them to sit there and wait on us. We thought we would be waiting for quite a while for them to make a driver available. We were greatly satisfied with their service! I can't recommend them enough! We found their service to be reliable and courteous. They far exceeded our expectations!

Punctial, friendly shuttle service. Perfect on time, always answering e-mails and calls prompt, flexibel in changing pick up times, good VAN and easy driving. We are a family of 6 and used Payless from Airport Dollar Carrental to Long Beach Cruise port and back to LAX. Can recommend these guys to everyone. $ 75 one way seems a good price/ value, no hidden costs.
