Top tips for hiring a car in New Mexico

  • Located in the southwestern United States, New Mexico is a state waiting to be explored. Whether you’re going to the Land of Enchantment (as New Mexico is nicknamed) for business or leisure, you’ll find the liberty to accomplish all your goals with car rental services. New Mexico car rentals are generally available in the major cities or at airports and are perfect for those who want to travel outside the city limits. If you’re renting a car from Albuquerque, you’ll find two routes perfect for leaving the city: Interstate 40, running east to west, and Interstate 25, which runs north to south. To get the most complete taste of New Mexico, Route 66 connects major destinations like Old Town and the University of New Mexico.
  • New Mexico is known for enforcing severe penalties for speeding violations, especially in commercial areas. Locals sometimes refer to these penalties as Work Zone Enhancements, and they can be enforced even when workers are not present, as long as road signs are visible. Be sure to look out for these signs. Drunk driving is a serious offense in the state of New Mexico. Driving with a BAC level higher than 0.16 percent can result in automatic penalties that may include suspension of your driver’s license, a fine, or even jail time in severe cases.
