Another option is \usepackage[norule]{footmisc}.

(One may also want to use the bottom option of the footmisc package -- this will place footnotes below bottom floats, contrary to LaTeX's default behaviour.)

EDIT: If you're using a KOMA-script class, yet another option is \setfootnoterule{0pt}. (The command syntax is \setfootnoterule[<height>]{<length>}; the command was added in KOMA-script v3.06.)

setfootnoterule{0pt} has no effect when loading the KOMA-script package scrextend. – Sverre Oct 30 '15 at 12:57
