4.0 Okay19 Oct 2020
Cons: Kayak and Priceline steered me wrong. I put in the car rental at the airport only to find out that the rental office of enterprise was miles away and we had to get an Uber. I will never do that again.
4.0 Okay12 Oct 2020
Pros: Nice truckCons: Price not what was given at booking
2.0 Mediocre10 Aug 2020
Pros: The supervisor trying to do his best with the situationCons: Provide the total of the rental with all the fees that were going to be associated with the rental. I did use my rental because of the hidden fees that brought the total over a $1000 dollars and it needing to be on a credit card.
10.0 Excellent10 Jul 2020
Pros: Friendly staff in both ABQ and DEN.
10.0 Excellent1 Jul 2020
Pros: Easy and quick pickup and very easy dropoff. Vehicle was in excellent condition.Cons: With complicated user interface systems and no real standards between manufactures it would be good to offer an orientation to the customer but it would require additional personal.
8.0 Excellent20 May 2020
Pros: Staff was friendly and took adequate social distancing/safety measures.
10.0 Excellent19 Nov 2019
Pros: Great customer service, Lots of signs directing people where to go. Employees seemed to care about the customers
7.6 Good24 Sep 2019
Pros: Straightforward, no problemsCons: Car was relatively old, low-spec (e.g no climate control, only manual air con). But perfectly adequate.
5.2 Okay8 Sep 2019
Cons: Head lights very dull, didn’t light up the road at all especially on mountain roads! Hubcaps rattled , thought something was falling off under the car. VERY BUMPY RIDE......almost as if no shocks!!!!!
8.4 Excellent6 Sep 2019
Pros: I picked up the car from ABQ and dropped it off in Taos. At drop off in Taos, the staff were friendly, helpful and efficient, which is typical of my positive Enterprise car rental experiences in Taos.Cons: At pick-up in ABQ, although each staff member I encountered was pleasant, the overall pick-up experience was extremely frustrating. Lines were long, and waiting for the actual car after check-in was even longer. Unfortunately this is typical of my Enterprise rental experience in ABQ.

Clean- Newer CarPros: Everything was great on our trip, the car was clean. The pickup counter talked me into a prepaid fuel. I shouldn't have done this. I only used half a tank. When we went to return the car the attendant took us straight to the airport. Very nice service.
8.8 Excellent8 Aug 2018
had a problem with the carPros: The second car we had was fine -- not as nice as the first, but it worked and got us there. We had a problem with the first car (tire pressure warning light), but after some protests on our part (They couldn't figure out how to start the time for our new car -- they kept the original time we picked up the first car that was faulty!), they finally deducted $15 from our overall charge to compensate for additional time. Wish we'd gotten as nice a car as our first for our replacement, but at least it worked.Cons: A few miles away from the rental agency, a warning light went on and we had to go back to the airport to trade it in. It was very difficult to figure out how to do that. (I found it hard to believe this had never happened before.) We finally got another car but no one could figure out how to clock the new time out for the rental car (so we wouldn't be charged for the hour plus we had spent dealing with replacing the car). However, our insistence prompted the manager to finally take $15 off of the total price to compensate us.
10.0 Excellent9 Jun 2018
Pros: Everything went smoothly. good customer service both the beginning and the end.
5.2 Okay24 Mar 2018
DIfficulty in returning carPros: Ease of getting car.Cons: I had to return the car by 4:00 am for a 5:00 am flight. I was provided instructions on how to return the car unattended as they did not open until 6:00 am. When I attempted to return the car the lot was closed off (with several other people waiting) and there was no entry except for another company. I was forced to park in a wrong place in order to make my flight and was charged for "towing". This would not have been an issue if their lot had been available as promised and directed.
9.6 Excellent5 Feb 2018
Top notch customer servicePros: Customer service. The gentlemen was friendly and gave us some options for places to visit.Cons: We up-graded our rental but the vehicle was having some issues with consistent acceleration.

2.0 Mediocre24 Apr 2020
Cons: They charged me over $200 for gas, when I returned the car fully fueled. In corresponding with them they said they would refund some of the money. I haven't seen a cent!
6.8 Good10 Dec 2019
Pros: Car was clean and drop off easy.Cons: They push the fuel option without explaining that you are charged for a full tank of gas regardless of what's in the car when you return, plus it appear that you are then charged taxes on this. Yes, the details are in the contract, but they carefully avoid explaining it. Never do that again. Also, they are less than candid about the insurance option, which probably leads most people to accept the "basic" plan not realizing that it adds dramatically to the cost. I believe that they do these things intentionally and many people end up paying much more than they anticipated. I probably won't use this company again.
6.0 Good27 Nov 2019
Pros: Loved the staff in the morning when we ultimately picked up our car!Cons: When we arrived approximately 3 minutes before closing time, with a reservation, the desk was closed. We were forced to hire an Uber that night and again in the morning to return and get our car. Two other parties also arrived when we did.
5.2 Okay12 Nov 2019
Pros: Price was ok.Cons: Have the size of car I reserved available. Have more staff so the wait is shorter.
6.8 Good23 Sep 2019
Pros: The pick-up was horrible due to the hour and 18-minute wait. Other than that, the agent was competent & helpful, the car was fine, and the drop-off was as well.Cons: The pick-up was horrible. One person at the desk with a dozen customers on line. (It's not as if Advantage didn't know how many reservations they had that afternoon.) I waited an hour and 18 minutes (I timed it) to be served. No more Advantage for me.
6.4 Good19 Sep 2019
Cons: I made the reservation but upon pick up, there were no cars available. They were overbooked by at least 15 cars.

Pros: Ultimately the car we got was sufficient and good. We weren’t able to do what we intended with it though.Cons: Pickup took in excess of 90 min and didn’t have the car I paid for. I was given a smaller car and offered no discount. Only option was to wait for my car to become available. Without an ETA

8.8 Excellent21 Sep 2020
Pros: Everyone was very friendly and helpful. I never had to wait very long.Cons: It was upsetting to receive a call ON THE DAY I was to pick my my rental, that there was no rental available. But they made up for that by going out and getting a brand new vehicle to have ready for my original pick up time.
2.8 Mediocre20 Sep 2020

Pros: The staff never answered the phone. Hours didn’t match. Once, they answered they failed to mention difference if schedule. Schedule was changed on their door with a sharpie... written over original times. But!!! They did follow through with a refund. I am grateful for that.Cons: They need to update their online hours to reference their in store hours and confirmation email.

Pros: My SW airline flight was cancelled due to national recall of the aircraft type. The rebooked flight got me in 4 hours early, and the Budget system would not honor my rate. The agent worked over 30 minutes, with a long line, to figure out a by-pass of their system to get me the same rate.Cons: Safe tires. After two days, I noticed excessive wear on one of the tires. I looked at all 4, and found one whose tread was so worn you could not see the tread in the center. I did not think I'd make it back to drop off without a flat, and limited my driving as a result. I have a photo if interested

6.8 Good27 Aug 2019
Pros: The clerk attempted to recommend a larger car for 1/2 price. We originally accepted it, but when we saw the actual car, a Ford Expedition, we declined. Returning the car was easy. Afterwards we received notice that the charges for the LARGE vehicle, which we declined was changed to the smaller one.Cons: The clerk should not have assumed nor recommended we needed a larger vehicle, which cost MUCH more, despite his offer of half price. The vehicle we had reserved and then accepted was fine, and we had plenty of room. Glad Thrifty adjusted the bill to reflect the smaller car.

Pros: The whole operation was very understaffed but the people I dealt with, particularly a young man in ABQ, were very helpful and polite. The drop-off was the same, the lot at DEN was closed, which made me nervous about missing my flight. There was no indication anywhere that I was to go to the Avis lot for drop-off. Again, nobody to explain anything but when the woman showed up, she was polite and helpful in a difficult situation for her.
6.8 Good3 Dec 2019
Pros: Friendly counter help. Reliable vehicleCons: I rented an SUV on line. When I got to rental place they had no SUV’s. Was given a minivan instead. Not what I had in mind for a winter weekend in the mountains.

7.6 Good14 Oct 2017
Albuquerque RentalPros: Off site transportation was efficient, full size rental rate for Payless was reasonable compared to othersCons: Picked up the car after dark. Car was reasonably clean, but windows were dirty. Hard to see out of front and back, lots of glare, day and night. Mentioned this on my check in on return, and the staff said it is hard to keep windows clean in New Mexico, especially with high temps. Other than that, a good transaction

2.0 Mediocre17 Sep 2019
Cons: My flight was cancelled and I did not make my car reservation within 24 hours so they cancelled reservation even though it was prepaid. Will never go through a third party again.
2.0 Mediocre14 Aug 2019
Pros: Nothing.Cons: They could be more upfront about their pricing. I recommend going with someone else that allows unlimited mileage included in their pricing. You may pay more upfront but in the long run you will save. Only having 250 miles per day isn’t worth it considering most people will have to drive beyond that
5.2 Okay6 Mar 2019
Cons: The vehicle I requested was not available and I had to take an up-charge for a larger vehicle. I was not happy with this, but it was the only option available to me as I was on vacation with 3 other adults depending on me to get them to our destination.
2.0 Mediocre23 Dec 2018
Cons: The ticket counter was closed once I got there and no provisions were made for a rental. Which left me looking for a vehicle at 12:30 in the morning. Fortunately one of your competitors was open and indicated this happens all of the time and was more than happy to better the price offer and upgrade the vehicle. I don’t think I’ll be using this service again.
4.4 Okay14 Sep 2018
No cars upon pickupCons: When I arrived at the car rental location, there were no cars, even though I had a reservation. I had to wait over an hour past my reservation to pick up my car (and the whole time they told me I should expect to wait even longer). The employees were not understanding about the situation, and upon drop off, they told me I was lucky to even get a car at all.

Never again!Pros: Select vehicle on the lotCons: When you book with kayak, National considers you a second-class citizen. They want you to buy their $28-a-day insurance. (Warning about loss of use fees.) They say the Alliance insurance bought through kayak is insufficient. They charge $15 a day to allow your spouse to drive. They upsell, upsell, upsell: class of car, insurance, etc. etc. I won't rent with them again, either directly or through a third-party website. Use Budget!

Top tips for hiring 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 hire agencies, including Alamo, Avis, Enterprise, and Hertz, can be found at Albuquerque International Sunport (ABQ)'s Car hire 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 petrol 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 petrol 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.
