Top tips for renting a car at Santa Fe airport

  • Even though public transport is usually cheaper, nothing beats the convenience of rental cars. First, with your own set of wheels, you are free to venture as far as you like, and you are not restricted by the rigid schedules of the public transportation system. Attractions such as Hyde Memorial State Park are only a short drive away.
  • Santa Fe Airport (SAF) hosts four car rental providers. Two are located inside the facility, while two are at an offsite facility. Like most airports in the US, if you will be traveling with kids, you need to have a car seat where you can secure your child. You can rent this and other added extras, including a GPS navigation system from your rental car provider.
  • To return your rental car, follow the signs for rental car return to the return lot at Santa Fe Airport. Once at the lot, park your rental car in your provider's space and return the key and contract to the car rental counter next to the check-in desks. For after-hours returns, once you park and lock the vehicle, take the key and contract to the drop-off counter inside the terminal. Remember to take your belongings with you.
  • If you wish to navigate through Santa Fe easily, consider getting some of the rental cars with the best scores at Santa Fe Airport. Compact cars, full-size sedans, and standard SUVs are some of the most rented cars from Santa Fe Airport car rental providers. These types of vehicles serve well solo travelers and families.
  • Book your rental car at Santa Fe airport at least 4 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price

Terrible. Was unable to pick up car under l reservation bc I used a virtual Credit card and couldn’t present that same card physically. Hertz would not allow me to update the payment source on my reservation so I was forced to cancel and rebook as a walk up. Terrible.

Friendliest staff ever. I did have to return the vehicle off-hours, which meant no shuttle service and a long, cold walk from parking lot to terminal. Other than that, everything was great.

Pros:

We were able to keep the car longer for a reasonable price. Thank you.

Cons:

The ability to pick up the car. Our flight was delayed & there was not an effort made for us to be able to pick up the car before closing at the extraordinary time of 5pm. In the end, we had an extra $30 in Lyft fees to get the car at the airport the next day. Not a great way to start this rental.

KAYAK

Pros:

I liked the car overall, but it had a tire pressure problem. The light kept flashing “check tire pressure”. I had to go to a few places in town and wait for them to check it and it turned out it was 5 or 6 psi below what it should have been!

Cons:

I asked the check-in clerk for a 1 pm return on the scheduled date. But he put 12 pm instead. When I called Hertz to ask for an extra hour, they wanted $32 extra (for 1 hour!!!!!). Nobody else does this. Hotels and resorts, all over the world, allow an extra hour without penalty. I was told on the phone I would be granted an extra 1/2 hour because of the tire pressure problem. Nothing else. And at check-out I find I was charged $13.99 for one-half hour. This is ridiculous. With a policy like this, I will NOT be renting from Hertz again!

Pros:

The staff was very nice, gave me some clorox wipes to clean up the car (even though it was already very clean, it was just to be sure). Enterprise is also waiving the normal fee to drop the car in a different location, which was incredibly helpful.

Cons:

It was great, no problems.

Vehicle picked up was not cleaned or washed, customer service at location was horrible. I would call multiple times and was placed directly on hold by store manager Rachel advising “ im with a customer please hold” didn’t even get an opportunity to ask or state a word.

The dropoff was supposed to be at the Albequerque airport but the address given was several miles away and provided no shuttle to the airport. Fortunately, we were smart enough to call and got the drop off changed to the airport.

Pros:

The worst pressure up-selling of my life. This could easily be worth 300 to 400 dollars added to the price. Avis is pretty greedy.

Cons:

Up front details about up-selling. I doubt I'll rent from Avis again. Costs can quadruple.

Cons:

The car we were given was extremely uncomfortable for a short person to drive and drop off via the drop box not very user friendly (no writing utensils available and we didn’t have any with us on vacation)

Pros:

We got to the Santa Fe airport at 5:25 pm local time. When we called about picking up our car, we were told the office had closed at 5 pm and we could not get the car. So we had to rent a car from someone else.

Cons:

How about staying open during reasonable business hours? Closing at 5 pm for an airport rental car service? Are you serious? But if you can't be open during reasonable business hours, how about advising us in advance what the closing time is? Overall, have to give you guys a POOR rating.
