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 rental agencies, including Alamo, Avis, Enterprise, and Hertz, can be found at Albuquerque International Sunport (ABQ)'s Car Rental 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.

  • The average gas prices in Albuquerque are approximately $2.31 per gallon. Lower prices can range anywhere between $1.99 and $2.09 per gallon. Because stations can get pretty busy on weekends, try to fill up during the week. Try to fill up the tank early in the morning or late in the evening, and avoid doing so in the weekends or on Thursdays and Fridays before long weekends as gas stations get pretty crowded.

  • Street parking is plentiful and typically metered, and drivers must pay for a parking spot between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday, while Sundays and public holidays are free. Parking rates can range anywhere between $1 and $6 per hour. However, parking is free for a limited time of two hours on all the streets in the Old Town area.
