Getting a cheap car rental in Albuquerque is easy because there are many rental-car companies.

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.

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.
