FAQ
How can I pay for my rental car?
Payment for a rental car should preferably be made by credit card. It is possible to pay by debit card, however at the rental counter you will need a credit card issued to the main driver in order to secure the deposit for your rental car.
Who is allowed to drive the rental car and what are the conditions?
A rental car can be driven by a main driver, that is the person registered in the booking. Additional drivers may be added to the reservation at extra fee. The main and additional drivers are to present a valid driving license, which they have been in possession of for at least one year (please refer to the rental conditions), and a valid identity card/passport. Additionally, the main driver is to present a valid credit card issued in their name.
Do I have to pick up and return the car at any time? What happens if I am late for pick-up?
We recommend that you pick up the car at the agreed time as the availability of the car cannot be guaranteed in case of a delay. As a rule, local suppliers keep vehicles available up to 30 or 60 minutes after the agreed time. If a delay is inevitable, please contact the rental agency (you will find their contact details on the voucher).
What documents are required to pick up the vehicle?
When picking up the vehicle, the main driver is to present the following documents: the printed voucher, their identity card or passport; their driving's license and their valid credit card.

Albuquerque Attractions and Travel Tips

Cheap Car Rental Albuquerque

Car Rental in Albuquerque

The largest city in New Mexico, Albuquerque was originally founded as a Spanish colony, and today retains a great deal of unique Latin character. This desert city is full of unusual adobe architecture and is near many interesting sights. Venture out into the desert to see landscapes made famous by the TV series "Breaking Bad" or explore the Native American heritage of the area. With a cheap car rental from Albuquerque Airport (Albuquerque International Sunport), New Mexico is yours to explore.

What can I see in Albuquerque?

The Petroglyph National Monument follows a chain of dormant volcanoes. The views here are just spectacular and the petroglyphs are even more interesting. Over 24,000 images have been found here, carved by the ancient native people and, later, Spanish settlers. Some of the images date back over 3,000 years and offer a fascinating look at the area's history. Pick up your car hire at Albuquerque Airport and explore.

For a deeper look at the heritage of New Mexico, head to the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center in your cheap car rental from Albuquerque Airport. This museum is owned by the native people themselves and is dedicated to preserving their culture and heritage. Inside you'll find intriguing artifacts. Check the program in advance, as most weekends there are performances of traditional dances or art demonstrations.

Tip

In recent years, many tourists have been drawn to this city by the modern TV classic, "Breaking Bad". Many of the iconic buildings from the series can be seen around town; in fact, "Breaking Bad" tours have become a popular tourist attraction. You can map out and follow a route yourself with your rental car from Albuquerque Airport or join one of the RV Tours that will drive you around town in a vehicle just like the iconic Winnebago used by Walt and Jesse. Even if you don't want to commit to a full tour, you can snack on fried chicken at Los Pollos Hermanos.

Nature in Albuquerque

The easiest way to see great views is to catch a ride on the Sandia Peak Tramway, a cable car that will take you up to the top of the Sandia Mountains for jaw-dropping views.

For a deeper exploration, there are several national parks nearby. One of the most interesting is Chaco Canyon, where you'll see spectacular desert landscapes and Pueblo ruins. This park is about 150 miles from Albuquerque and is worth spending a day visiting. Closer to the city, Cibola National Forest is also a nice place for a day trip. Rent a car at Albuquerque Airport and check it out.

What other interesting cities are nearby?

Rental cars at Albuquerque Airport allow you to explore more of New Mexico. It's quick and easy to get to Santa Fe, 65 miles away. The colonial Spanish architecture is worth viewing, and art fans will also love the Georgia O'Keeffe Museum with a permanent collection of some of the renowned artist's best works.

Getting around Albuquerque

With long distances between places of interest, the best way to get around this part of the country is with Albuquerque Airport car rentals. Pick up your vehicle as soon as you arrive, and you'll be able to explore comfortably at your own pace. You can check out the different options for car rental at Albuquerque Airport and compare them in advance with HAPPYCAR.

Is it safe to drive in the desert?

Many people who look for cheap car rentals in the United States dream of heading off-road into the Wild West. If you're planning to take some day trips out of town, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, the best car rental from Albuquerque Airport for desert adventures has to be a 4x4.

Secondly, it is essential that you bring enough supplies, especially water, and a full tank of gas. Even if you have the routes saved on your cell, it's a good idea to bring a book of maps in your car. Signals in the desert can be patchy.
