Pros:

staff very friendly and helpful, made the process very quick and didn't waste any time.

Cons:

the only major issue was that one of the tires of the car was severely underpressurized, and I noticed this several hours into my trip - had I not taken care of it myself, the trip could have been held up by a flat or even worse an accident could have occurred.

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 Okay

Dec 2019

KAYAK

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.

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.

Sep 2019

KAYAK

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.

I made the reservation but upon pick up, there were no cars available. They were overbooked by at least 15 cars.

Car was prepaid, yet I still had to wait 30 minutes in line in order to get the automobile. Then there was rather intense pressure to pre-pay fuel, buy more insurance, and the like--just so Hertz can generate more money.

Pros:

Drop off was easy.

Pros:

New Mexico was short on rental cars during Memorial Day weekend and I was a bit nervous when we had to rent from Budget because their reviews were the lowest. However, this was my best car rental experience by far. The customer service was amazing, the facility is in close proximity to the airport, the return process was a breeze. By far, this was one of my best rental experiences.

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.

I got a Ford EcoSport small SUV which was good for traveling into areas where paved driveways don't exist. The car was clean, good value, and check-out was fast. When we arrived there were two staff in the check-in area. One was helping a customer, and the other was just there. Not doing anything. I can understand if only one was really working and the other might have been keeping the other company, but at least acknowledge us with a simple "Hello, Welcome, or Be right with you."

Top tips for renting a car at Albuquerque Airport

  • For a comfortable and convenient way to explore the area, consider booking a car rental at Albuquerque Airport. While the city does have some public transportation, such as the local bus, driving remains one of the easiest and quickest ways to get where you need to go. By having your own Albuquerque Airport car rental, you can stick to your own schedule and have enough room to comfortably transport cargo, such as a few suitcases.
  • No matter what your preferences are, there is a model that will work perfectly for your car rental at Albuquerque Airport. If you plan on going on longer road trips throughout the region, or will be traveling with a few other individuals, you may want to reserve an SUV. Those that would like to travel on a budget can opt for an economy or standard vehicle instead. Compact models are handy when you’ll be primarily staying in the city center, as they make it easy to park and weave through narrow streets.
  • To return your car rental at Albuquerque Airport, simply bring the vehicle to the designated drop-off area that is located at the rental car center. Once you start to approach the airport, you will see that there are signs leading you to the exact area where each company stores its fleet.
