Location information for Albuquerque

Introduction

Albuquerque is the largest city in the American state of New Mexico. From a tourist point of view, it's often overshadowed by the more popular Santa Fé, but Albuquerque also has charming places of interest, including interesting museums, beautiful nature parks in the vicinity and a world-famous balloon fiesta in the fall.

Population

The city has 550,000 inhabitants, but including the suburbs the population of Albuquerque reaches almost one million.

Location

Albuquerque is centrally located in New Mexico, in the south of the United States, on the Rio Grande and north of the Chihuahuan Desert. The city lies at an average altitude of 1600 meters which makes it one of the most elevated large American cities. The Sandia and Manzano Mountains lie east of the city.

Economy

The city is the center of the so-called New Mexico Technology Corridor, an elongated area along the Rio Grande where several high-tech companies are located, including manufacturers of computer parts (for example an Intel chip factory) and companies concentrating on the development of alternative energy.

Airports

The city airport is not called Airport, but Sunport to emphasize the many hours of sun Albuquerque receives annually. Albuquerque International Sunport is situated 5 kilometers southeast of the city center and is easily reachable by rental car. From the city you take the I-25. The exit to the airport is clearly signposted.

Public Transport

Albuquerque is a city of cars and public transport is moderately developed. Most buses run via the elongated Central Avenue, which by the way is part of the historical Route 66.

Traffic and Parking

Two Interstate freeways, the I-40 (east-west) and the I-25 (north-south), crisscross the city. Although traffic jams in and around Albuquerque are less severe than in many other large American cities, traffic during morning and evening rush hour and on Saturdays can be busy. In the center it's difficult to find a free parking place in the street, but fortunately there are many parking garages to park your car. Most of them are signposted.  

Hotels

Albuquerque has a large choice of accommodations. In the last few years, many hotels have been built in the midrange category. The cheapest guesthouses can be found along Central Avenue, but some are of doubtful reputation. Better hotels can be found mainly in Uptown Albuquerque, east of the I-40 and north of the I-25, although you can also find some good hotels in Downtown. During the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta in October it can be difficult or even impossible to find a free hotel room in the city.

Frequently asked questions

Is EasyTerra Car Rental the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

You can always cancel your booking free of charge if you do not agree (this must be done at least 48 hours prior to the start of the car hire period). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation?
