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.
