The police discover after Emily goes missing that she rented a car from Budget paying with cash. Budget Rent-A-Car does not allow vehicle rentals without payment via credit or debit card, nor do any others in the US. Further, they require a valid driver's license as well, and thus would've already had a record of Emily's rental even if she didn't use a card to pay for it. See more »
