Car rentals in Placitas, Albuquerque: What you need to know

Whether you are in Placitas on business or for a holiday, having the option to go where you want to go, when you need to can help make your trip all the better. Using Placitas buses may be an affordable method to explore the neighborhood, but if you are trying to get to another part of Albuquerque, you might be left waiting for a while. Taxis and ridesharing, like Uber or Lyft, can be faster, but the cost can start to add up. Additionally, they may not be immediately available.

If you want to make the most out of your trip to Placitas, then having access to your own set of wheels is the best way to make sure you have time to do everything you need to do during your visit. We can help you book an affordable price and the auto of your choice. Check out our tips to learn all that you need about car rentals in Placitas.

  • Book as far in advance as possible. You will usually get your preferred vehicle of your choice and save more
  • Check the fuel and mileage policies. You don't want to be surprised with added costs
  • Decide what car you'll need for your drive. Don't rent more car then you need

Make sure you understand the rental policy before you book.

What kind of vehicle should I rent while in Placitas?

How old do I have to be to rent a car in Placitas?

The youngest age to rent a vehicle in most cities, like Placitas, Albuquerque, is 21. Be aware that there is ordinarily an added charge for anyone under 25. Also note, if you plan to rent a higher category vehicle (premium, large capacity, SUV, etc.) there may be further age restrictions. Check the car rental company's policy before you book.

Is insurance required when you rent a car in the U.S. of A.?

Most countries require the driver to have insurance. You may be able to buy temporary coverage with the rental car company. Otherwise, as a U.S. citizen, you can also purchase Collision Damage Coverage through CarRentals.com at checkout.

Although many of the major card issuers, like MasterCard or Discover, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For example, they may not cover your rental car if you book a luxury or larger vehicle. Make sure to check the rental company's policy before you decide.

Should I return my rental car with a full tank?

Most rental car companies give you a full tank when you pick up your car. At CarRentals.com, we recommend bringing the car back with the same amount as you received it. If you want to save some money, you should fill up your tank before you bring it back to the supplier. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Do any Placitas companies permit one-way?

A lot of car rental companies offer one-way rentals. It may be simpler to drop off your vehicle at another location. Please note that there is usually an additional fee for one-way car rentals. Make sure to check the car rental company's policy to know exactly how much it may cost you.

Can I book with unlimited mileage when renting a car in Placitas?

The majority of suppliers offer unlimited miles, but you need to make sure it is part of your bundle. It's helpful to figure out how much driving you will be doing in and around Placitas. You don't want to be surprised with any additional fees if you don't have unlimited miles, so make sure to understand the company's policy. You may need to have unlimited miles if you're hitting the highway to explore all that is in Albuquerque.
