We believe that almost every big car rental company in Canada will give you the option of dropping off your car for some rate comparable to that of Budget. Given this cost and the fact that driving the 600 km between Calgary and Saskatoon is tiresome, you may consider taking the Greyhound bus between Calgary and Saskatoon. This is the least expensive alternative. There is one bus in the day and one at night.
On the other hand, if you drive from Calgary to Saskatoon or back, you may visit the Dinosaur museum at Drumheller which is truly exceptional. You might consider staying the night there.
