KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Albuquerque

  • Driving in Albuquerque is the most convenient and effective way of getting to know the city, as all the major interest points are sprawled out. While you may prefer to walk in the Old Town area, a car is a must when exploring the rest of the city. Drive along the iconic Route 66 (or Central Ave), which cuts through the downtown area all the way to the university area. A car is also the perfect option for those looking to explore other destinations outside the city such as the Sandia Peak, which is located in the Sandia Mountains area, less than 20 miles from Albuquerque. New Mexico's capital, Santa Fe, is also a short hour’s ride away from Albuquerque.
  • All the big car hire agencies, including Alamo, Avis, Enterprise, and Hertz, can be found at Albuquerque International Sunport (ABQ)'s Car hire Center. There is a free shuttle bus service between the airport terminal building and the Car Rental Center, with shuttles departing every 5 minutes or so from the lane outside the first level of the terminal building. The shuttle service is handicap accessible.
  • Fender benders happen quite often in Albuquerque, so watch out for reckless drivers. The weather gets pretty rough in the winter, which means you must be extra careful when driving during this season as accidents often happen due to strong winds, snow, or black ice that has formed. The roads are also quite dark at night, so extra caution is required when night driving.
  • Although traffic is manageable in certain parts of the city, roads are all usually fairly busy throughout Albuquerque during peak hours -- so avoid rush hour traffic both in the morning (between 6 and 10 a.m.) and afternoon (between 3 and 7 p.m.). The worst commutes are for drivers heading to Albuquerque/East Albuquerque in the morning, and exiting that area in the afternoon. Traffic heading from the Rio Rancho area to East Albuquerque also tends to get congested during peak hours.
  • Book your rental car in Albuquerque at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Economy rental cars in Albuquerque are around 75% cheaper than other car types, on average

Insights shared by verified travelers who rented a car in Albuquerque 
Verified travelerJun 2024
I had a Mini Cooper, which uses premium gas only, but even paying premium gas, the fuel economy on those cars is great! I filled up my tank 3 times in over 1,200 miles driven. Highly recommend Mini's Countryman

Try to find the best deal. All of the cars and car companies at Albuquerque airport are very conveniently located by bus.

Sunport is easy-peasy for car rental - and the signs guiding you on the drive back to return the rental at the airport are very clear.

My experience with ACE was good. I probably would use them again.

Driving in Albuquerque is fine. No parking problems even in high tourist areas like Old Town. Note that we were there in the off season. Gas prices were lower than in Gallup.

The car was fine. The hidden fees were and incorrect charges were frustrating. Probably won't rent from them again. They admitted they made a mistake but won't take any action to correct the credit card charges. I prepaid for gas to be able to bring the car back empty and still over charged me by $70. There were about half a dozen hidden fees tacked onto the invoice that literally added hundreds of dollars to the cost of the rental. Definitely recommend finding a different car rental company that is more transparent up front in regards to the total cost of the rental

they gave me a toyota corolla cross instead of a rav4. At first I was disappointed, but it turned out to be great. Perfect for my trip. Line to get the car was long and it took 30-40 minutes because there were only two agents. car was a little dirty on the exterior. Kind of looked like water spots, but was a bit sticky. easy return, but could be more clear that you return it to the Hertz area.

First off my flight landed at 11:20 AM on Saturday. I called the location that was my reservation. I told him I would be six minutes away. They said they would wait for me but keep in mind they close at 12 I took a Uber to get there I go to location come to find out 1145 they completely locked their doors. I tried calling them six times and they completely ignore me Crying and very upset since I needed this truck to move my family member I called the reservation hotline and they transfer me to another location. That’s an hour away damaged. My reservation and plans reserve resort to me to pay extra day rental. I will not be using budget anymore. I’m very unhappy with the customer service they have given me.

Budget was closed at ABQ - directed to AVIS counter. They did NOT have the RAV4 AWD that I had reserved (with nav) ; nor did they have any AWD vehicle for me. The agent said thy don't have AWd vehicles because ABQ only gets snow one month out of the year - I didn't know people who rented in ABQ never strayed out of that city!) After searching, the agent found a FORD Edge with AWD - for an ADDITIONAL $25 per day above the cost of the AWD quote. The right rear tire sensor kept going off during the trip, but the tire itself was not deflated. It is a noisy ride and the seats are not comfortable for a long trip, You have to look at the digital controls on the center console- That is not a safe practice going 75 mph on the I-40. After driving this vehicle for over 2k miles, I can say I would never buy a FORD Edge.

It was easy to pick up and return the car and it was clean and comfortable. I didn’t realize the Albuquerque location I selected wasn’t at the airport car rental hub. And I had to get an Uber to get there, a minor inconvenience.

Car was prepaid, yet I still had to wait 30 minutes in line in order to get the automobile. Then there was rather intense pressure to pre-pay fuel, buy more insurance, and the like--just so Hertz can generate more money.

Pros:

New Mexico was short on rental cars during Memorial Day weekend and I was a bit nervous when we had to rent from Budget because their reviews were the lowest. However, this was my best car rental experience by far. The customer service was amazing, the facility is in close proximity to the airport, the return process was a breeze. By far, this was one of my best rental experiences.

Pros:

The whole operation was very understaffed but the people I dealt with, particularly a young man in ABQ, were very helpful and polite. The drop-off was the same, the lot at DEN was closed, which made me nervous about missing my flight. There was no indication anywhere that I was to go to the Avis lot for drop-off. Again, nobody to explain anything but when the woman showed up, she was polite and helpful in a difficult situation for her.

They charged me over $200 for gas, when I returned the car fully fueled. In corresponding with them they said they would refund some of the money. I haven't seen a cent!

6.8 Okay

Dec 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

Car was clean and drop off easy.

Cons:

They push the fuel option without explaining that you are charged for a full tank of gas regardless of what's in the car when you return, plus it appear that you are then charged taxes on this. Yes, the details are in the contract, but they carefully avoid explaining it. Never do that again. Also, they are less than candid about the insurance option, which probably leads most people to accept the "basic" plan not realizing that it adds dramatically to the cost. I believe that they do these things intentionally and many people end up paying much more than they anticipated. I probably won't use this company again.

Pros:

Loved the staff in the morning when we ultimately picked up our car!

Cons:

When we arrived approximately 3 minutes before closing time, with a reservation, the desk was closed. We were forced to hire an Uber that night and again in the morning to return and get our car. Two other parties also arrived when we did.

Pros:

The pick-up was horrible due to the hour and 18-minute wait. Other than that, the agent was competent & helpful, the car was fine, and the drop-off was as well.

Cons:

The pick-up was horrible. One person at the desk with a dozen customers on line. (It's not as if Advantage didn't know how many reservations they had that afternoon.) I waited an hour and 18 minutes (I timed it) to be served. No more Advantage for me.

During pickup costs were added that did not appear in the original reservation. After refusing a higher cost upgrade, we were given a "free" BMW SUV instead of the domestic SUV we thought we were getting. This car had no drivers manual and was a mystery for many of its functions. It also handled poorly on New Mexico's I-40.

I made a reservation for 10pm and even included my flight number when booking. I showed up between 10:00-10:05pm to find that the Sixt counter had closed for the evening and wouldn’t reopen until 7am the next morning. (Sixt customers were not being redirected to another counter/location as is sometimes the case when arriving “after hours” in other cities.) I don’t have rideshare apps (that’s why I booked a rental car!), so my friend at home had to remotely call me an Uber to my hotel, and another back to the rental car center in the morning. Kayak should never have allowed me to make a reservation for 10pm if they close AT 10pm, but Sixt should’ve contacted me ahead of arrival to alert me of the time discrepancy, or at least stayed a few minutes late to accommodate my reservation. I will NEVER book with Sixt again.
