Car rental alternatives in St. Louis, MO

Under the
St. Louis arch

Perched on the Mississippi River, St. Louis can at turns feel like a slick sophisticated city, and a casual, backyard party. With a rich blues and jazz history, and a blossoming gallery scene, nightlife in St. Louis can keep up with any city.

You’ll also find an abundance of green space in town, and many nearby getaways to revel in the natural beauty surrounding the city. Plus, it’s worth picking up a St. Louis airport car rental just to hit all the hottest barbeque joints.

St Louis Favorite

The classic St. Louis landmarks remain some of the best ways to get to know the city, so start the engine on your St. Louis car rental and start gawking.

The Gateway Arch

The silver, gleaming symbol of the city is eye-catching from anywhere you look, and is still the largest steel arch in the world. The spectacular aerial view from the top is enough incite vertigo.

Forest Park

Forest Park is the answer to any moment of boredom. Its 1,300 acres encompasses everything from Japanese botanical gardens to an art museum — you’ll even find an ice skating rink in winter.

Quirky specialty foods

In addition to St. Louis-style BBQ and an elevated dining scene, the city is known for some boldly styled snacks locals insist you try: St. Louis style pizza, “toasted” aka fried ravioli, and frozen custard.

Skip the rental car counter

Hit the road

You don’t have to travel far in your St. Louis car rental to find impressive geologic formations, and a unique literary pit stop.

Meramec Caverns

Just an hour away in your St. Louis car rental, this five-mile system of underground caves is neatly tucked into the Ozarks. It served as a hideout for Native Americans and the outlaw Jesse James.


Take the two-hour drive in your St. Louis car rental to visit Mark Twain’s hometown. Explore his childhood house and cruise the river to see the inspiration for Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn.

Johnson’s Shut-ins

Venture two hours south of the city in your St. Louis car rental to find the “shut-ins”, where the river pools in granite rocks perfect for swimming.

I was happy to rent an Audi while in St Louis, mostly for the familiarity of it, as it’s my main car at home. Every time I come to STL there is construction or new roads, so knowing the navigation system and car itself was very helpful for me. This car was kept clean and Obi was an amazing host. I will rent again from him next time.

John and Chuck were AMAZING to rent from! I am a Turo owner too and I picked up some good management tips from these guys. I have never driven a Tesla and I was a little nervous. John called me after the booking and answered all my questions. He even helped me create a map that included the necessary charging stations. Charging the Tesla at a supercharger station is very easy and fast. The car was clean and very well cared for. My 17 year old son also thought the car was pretty cool. St Louis was great and we can’t wait to come back to see all that we missed. We will definitely be renting from John again.

We came down for my wife’s friends wedding, it was so fun to drive a Tesla for the weekend. We love the car and Craig was very responsive and helpful the entire time even though I had no experience driving a tesla beforehand. His messages were prompt and helpful through it all! although you do have to plan a little more than we are used to when you take a Tesla for a long-distance leisure trip. Around town would have been perfect but we didn’t factor in charging the battery when trying to make it to the wedding about two hours away from St Louis. It was a close one! So much fun though, first time using Turo, had a great experience and will definitely use them again!
Spencer P. - June 30, 2019

She made me feel right at home in the short time I spent with her, and driving her car was a breeze- GREAT gas mileage and a seamless transition between electric and gas driving. 100% positive experience, you won’t regret renting this car!

Chuck and John are just great. They will provide you with every piece of information you need and will even help you plan your trip if you’re taking the Tesla out of town. If you’re trying to book with them don’t think twice about it, the experience and the car will be worth it.

Drew’s always extremely accommodating, helpful and just an all-around good guy. He knew that I was looking to rent because of car repairs I was having. His car wasn’t available at the time. As soon as he repaired his car he didn’t hesitate to let me know it was available for a short time before the next reservation. I still needed a car. Drew came through for me in a crunch and it was greatly appreciated.

This car was the best purchase I’ve made in the past two decades. The curves, edges, and sleek design will attract attention from every angle,l. The drive ability is perfectly engineered. From suspension, to handling and acceleration; you WILL be impressed. The customer service offered by Ousmane is unparalleled as well. You can tell he truly cares about his car and babies it; which is why I will rent again. I’ve rented other cars in the past that wouldn’t shift right, had transmission problems, and much much more. Ousmane s car however is in perfect shape and truly gives you an experience you’ve never had before: THANKS Ousmane!
Alex B. - September 3, 2018

Eddie has great communication skills and a pleasant personality. It really put my mind and heart at ease that he was extremely understanding when the tire went low from me trying to avoid one pothole only to end up driving over another. He didn't panic nor make me feel bad for something that was beyond my control. I most certainly will rent from him again!
Laesha M. - August 1, 2019

Best St. Louis driving roads

Great River Road

Take it easy in your St. Louis car rental on this famous drive from downtown St. Louis up toward Alton, IL. You’ll be wowed by dramatic views of the Mississippi River.

Route 66

This historic route is begging for a cruise in your St. Louis car rental, with stops for the Meramec Caves and Shaw’s Nature Preserve along the way.

Rock Creek Valley Road

For one of the twistiest roads outside of town, direct your St. Louis car rental to Highway 40 and pick up Rock Creek Valley Road outside of High Ridge.
