Top tips for hiring a car in Santa Fe

  • As the capital of New Mexico, Santa Fe has lots to offer tourists. Along with historical attractions like Loretto Chapel and the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, there are a number of theatrical performances and concerts held at the Santa Fe Opera House. If you have a hire car, you might also enjoy a drive along the Turquoise Trail for nice scenery and the opportunity to shop at a variety of antique and boutique stores.
  • Many major airlines, including Delta and American, fly in and out of Santa Fe Regional Airport. It offers numerous amenities and services for passengers including car hire services. Located in the baggage claim area, car hire offices for Avis, Enterprise, and Hertz can be found here.
  • When driving in Santa Fe, you should be aware that there are several traffic cameras in and around the city. Via these cameras police look for drivers who exceed the speed limit or run lights, so drive with caution. Additionally, the sun in Santa Fe can be blinding, especially in the summertime. Be sure to have your sunglasses handy.
  • Rush hour is really not that bad in Santa Fe. Many workers do commute from Albuquerque to Santa Fe for work, however; so I-25 (the route between these two cities) is often the busiest. The morning commute begins early (around 6:30 a.m.) and continues through 8 a.m. In the evening, traffic slows down between the hours of 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.
  • Book your car hire in Santa Fe at least 5 weeks before your trip in order to get a below-average price
