Car Rental FAQs

What are the requirements to rent a car in Albuquerque?

Getting a cheap car rental in Albuquerque is easy because there are many rental-car companies. If you want to purchase rental cars in Albuquerque, you must be at least 21 years old, although there will be an additional fee for renters under 25. When you rent the car, you’ll need to have a valid driver’s license that you’ve held for at least one year, a photo ID, and a debit or credit card. Foreigners should carry their passports and government-issued driver’s license. If the license is not in English, you will need to get an International Driver’s Permit to present along with your license.

What are the rules for driving in Albuquerque?

When you drive your car rentals in Albuquerque, remember to drive on the right side of the road. Keep at or below a speed of 35 mph when driving in residential or business areas. You can increase your speed to 75 mph or 55 mph when driving on the interstate outside of city limits and on public highways, respectively. Fastening seat belts is mandatory for all passengers, especially children. Children under the age of seven and all children weighing less than 60 lbs. must be secured in a child car seat. Driving with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level of 0.08% or higher is illegal. Before you book Albuquerque car rentals, check with the local Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to be up to date on driving laws.

What type of car is recommended for driving in Albuquerque?

When selecting a cheap rental car in Albuquerque to drive, consider your destination. If you plan to tour the city and enjoy attractions within the city, then an economy car rental would work well for you. You might try a Mitsubishi Mirage or Chevy Spark, which are good for maneuvering the streets and traffic in the city. Alternatively, if you want to venture beyond the city scenery and explore New Mexico’s desert landscape, you should probably rent an SUV. The Jeep Compass is spacious enough to accommodate luggage and five passengers. Plus, rental cars in Albuquerque have air conditioning that’ll make the desert climate bearable.

Where are the best places to park in Albuquerque?

You won’t have to worry too much about parking your rental car in Albuquerque; metered parking on the street is abundant. Street parking must be paid for between the hours of 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. You can park for free in your cheap car rental in Albuquerque during public holidays and on Sundays. Make your parking experience easier by carrying cash when driving Albuquerque car rentals. The hourly parking rates range between $1 and $6. If you’re looking for somewhere to park car rentals in Albuquerque, try the Old Town area, which offers two hours of free parking on all streets.
