What You Need to Know about Car Rental in Albuquerque, New Mexico

A trip to Albuquerque, New Mexico allows you to discover the Sandia Mountains to your east and the Rio Grande rushing from north to south. The Duke City isn’t just home to naturally stunning landscapes, though; it’s also the Hot Air Ballooning Capital of America. Your own Albuquerque car rental is the best way to find out how this city came to hold all these nicknames and titles, and you can count on CarRentals.com to help you get around to do so affordably.

How can I get a cheap car rental in Albuquerque?

With so many cheap car rentals in Albuquerque available via CarRentals.com, you’ll soon be making the most of your visit to this desert oasis in New Mexico. To bag a great deal, try to:

  • - Browse and compare the various rental company offers;
  • - Avoid picking up your rental car at the airport;
  • - Avoid adding more than 1 driver for the car; 
  • - Book the rental car well in advance.

Which car rental companies are situated in Albuquerque?

As you might expect from New Mexico’s biggest city, there are many rental companies to choose from around these parts. These include Avis, Hertz, and Alamo, along with some smaller firms. It’s always a good idea to do a bit of research online and check user reviews before making your choice.

What kind of car should I get in Albuquerque, New Mexico?

The kind of car you select depends on what your Albuquerque agenda looks like. Want to cruise around in comfort and see the legendary desert surroundings? A spacious SUV or 12-passenger van rental will be perfect. If you’re just looking to get from A to B while keeping costs low, go for an economy car.

How old do I have to be to rent a car in the Duke City?

To rent a car, you’ll generally have to be at least 21 years of age. There might also be an extra, young person’s surcharge if you happen to be under 25.

Do I need insurance to rent a car in Albuquerque?

Yes, so take a moment to check if your credit card insurance or pre-existing car insurance covers car rentals. Being a US citizen, you can always purchase the correct policy through CarRentals.com, or from whichever rental company you go with.

What fuel policy is available in Albuquerque?

A number of fuel policies may be available, with the most popular being full-to-full. It’s a simple arrangement, which allows you to pick up a car with a full tank. All you have to do is refuel it before dropping it back off, or you’ll have to pay a fee.

Can I book with unlimited mileage when renting a car in Albuquerque, New Mexico?

Whether you’re staying in central Albuquerque, or are planning on heading out to the desert landscapes and visiting other New Mexico communities, it’s worth checking if your rental car comes with unlimited mileage. If not, you’ll have to keep tabs on how much distance you cover.

Is it possible to hire a car one-way?

It is, but check with the rental company in question to see if there’s an extra fee and how much it will be.
