Lambert - St Louis International Airport (STL) Car Rental and Transportation

Updated on October 22, 2017

One of the most important aspects to consider when planning a vacation or business trip is the availability of immediate transportation for the duration of your stay. The convenience and time saving considerations of picking up a rental car at Lambert - St Louis International Airport verses hiring alternative modes such as public transit bus or shuttle service, can be the defining difference between wasting an excessive amount of invaluable time and energy waiting around in a hotel lobby or bus stop for a ride to the next place of interest or corporate gathering, and an enjoyable relaxed paced itinerary experience.

In certain circumstances, a public transit commuter bus or van shuttle service does have it's advantages, especially if your travel plans do not include site seeing or business meetings and the only transportation required is a simple one way ride to and from the airport, which would be the logical scenario if your trip is brief in nature. However, if you are planning an extended stay, enduring multiple stops or considerable delays in between excursions or corporate meetings, which is almost guaranteed with the average bus and shuttle route, can turn out to be a time consuming and extremely frustrating alternative.

All companies presented are located on site or within very close proximity to Lambert - St Louis International Airport, enabling swift vehicle selection and delivery.


  • Price Negotiation - All consumers regardless of income bracket, are usually interested in receiving the best possible service at the most attractive budget friendly price, and attempting to negotiate for a rental car is one way to potentially get a discounted rate or more favorable terms. The outcome whether success or failure, typically depends on a consumers bargaining skills and willingness to engage in a conversation, and the prevailing economic environment, or a combination of both. As a frequent rent a car customer, I always inquire about current promotions which may be in progress or special deals some agencies may offer customers for frequent patronage, i.e. minimum number of car rentals within a specific time period, or for simply maintaining a loyal relationship. If your negotiating skills are up to par or timing is just right with favorable consumer friendly economic winds in your sail, securing an attractive bargain with flexible terms just might come to fruition. The opposite side of this equation presents a straight forward scenario, if the industry is experiencing robust activity and rental cars are in high demand, promotions and or discounts will probably be very difficult to find and settling for full price is usually the only realistic alternative, so plan accordingly. Discount or lack there of, the inherent benefits of having a rental car ready and waiting when you are, cannot be understated
