Find Your Way Around Albuquerque Airport

Welcome to Albuquerque, NM. Nestled between the Sandia Mountains and split by the Rio Grande, “The Duke City” is a spectacular place to visit whether you’re here for business or pleasure. On your next trip, don’t waste time waiting in line for public transportation; instead, see the sights from the start with a cheap Albuquerque airport car rental.

Arrival in Albuquerque

We recommend reserving a car rental ahead of time at Albuquerque International Sunport (ABQ). After debarking your plane, go to the first floor of the terminal and step outside to the commercial lane, where you will board the car rental shuttle. This free shuttle will take you to the Car Rental Center on 3400 University S.E., about 5 minutes away from the terminal. Once you’ve got your car rental keys in your hands, you’ll be on your way to enjoy the fun in Albuquerque.

Out & About in Albuquerque

Get things off to a quick start with a trip to the Unser Racing Museum. Located just 10 miles north of ABQ, this steering wheel-shaped facility is dedicated to the Unsers, New Mexico’s “first family of car racing.” After touring the various cars and displays in the museum, head for the Rio Grande, just a few blocks west. Rio Grande Nature Center State Park is right there to explore, or you can stroll along the river.
Take your ABQ car rental outside of Albuquerque to see even more of New Mexico. Petroglyph National Monument is 18 miles northwest of the airport, and is the home of over 24,000 images carved into the rock by the Pueblo people, who initially inhabited the area. Many of these images were carved hundreds of years ago, and depict everyday life as well as Pueblo mythology. For a slightly different view of Albuquerque, take a ride on the Sandia Peak Tramway. This 15-minute ride carries you up into the Sandia Mountains. Once you’re atop the mountain, you can just enjoy the sights, or go hiking (or skiing, in the winter) through the mountains.

Returning Your Car Rental

When you’re ready to leave Albuquerque, return your vehicle to the Car Rental Center and take the shuttle back to the terminal. If you’ve rented a car from an off-site company, know that you may need to make additional arrangements to get to the airport. Either way, you’ll be in good company; ABQ serves over 4 million passengers per year, many of whom fly on airlines like Southwest and American Eagle.
If you’re waiting for your flight, relax and enjoy a meal. ABQ offers numerous eating options, among them Mexican and Chinese food, as well as places to pick up a quick snack or some juice. If you’ve got more time on your hands, browse the books and magazines at the newsstands, or catch a game at the sports lounge.
