in Albuquerque

Resting tranquilly along the Rio Grande, beside the rosy Sandia Mountains, the relaxed sprawl of Albuquerque is the most populated in New Mexico — though you’d never know. It’s a popular setting for TV shows and movie production, so these days, in addition to the numerous historic highlights, you’ll find hip coffee shops, craft breweries, and farm-to-table cafes tucked into shipping crates.

Even if you’re making your way to the ever-popular Santa Fe, pick up your Albuquerque airport car rental alternative and scoot around town for a great bite and a tour through the ABQ.

Albuquerque Favorites

While the International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta is the best-known attraction in Albuquerque, there are other ways to appreciate the landscape and the history of the city if you just start your <a href="/ca/en/car-rental/united-states">Albuquerque car rental alternative</a>.

Sandia Peak Tramway

Take the 3-mile tramway up into the Sandia Mountains for an astonishing lookout point over the entire Rio Grande Valley. Keep that view in sight at a mountain-top restaurant or on a hike.

Petroglyph National Monument

This collection of petroglyphs west of the Rio Grande are between 300 and 25,000 years old, and were preserved by lava flow so you can still interpret the life and times of ancient people.

Unser Racing Museum

Learn about the history and modern technologies of auto racing, and peruse this personal collection of antique cars and trophies from a prominent racing family. Don’t miss the electrifying racing simulator!

Albuquerque is surrounded by the colorful natural beauty of New Mexico. Book your Albuquerque car rental alternative on Turo and begin with these striking favorites.

Acoma Sky City Pueblo

Climb to the top of a 400-foot mesa in your Albuquerque car rental alternative to tour the cliff dwellings, village, and cultural center that preserve the art and history of the indigenous Acoma people.

Jemez Springs

Make the hour drive in your Albuquerque car rental alternative to where red mesas tumble into green river beds. The area is littered with natural hot springs that you can hike to for a satisfying soak.

Taos

This mountainous, bohemian city is a haven for artists, collectors, and ski bums. It’s also a popular stop for sustainable-living fans on their way to visit Earthship Biotecture headquarters.

Matt was very responsive throughout the trip, even before the trip when we coordinated a car seat for our toddler. He was willing to pick up and install the seat prior to our arrival, which he ultimately did. He bought a beautiful new car seat for our trip. He was flexible with our pickup date as we had weather issues that delayed our flight. Highly recommend renting from him for your trip. Very understanding, compassionate, and flexible. A++++

This was my very first turo experience. Matt was SO great to work with and responsive. The car was easy to pick up from the airport and drives great! The only thing to be mindful of is that it is an older model so it does not have a USB port. Not a big deal if you plan ahead.

Everything with the car was great until the very end and then when I got to my final destination there was no Wi-Fi and I couldn’t get on to logon to my site or to pick up a driver to take me back to the airport so I had to go down to one of her neighbors to get Wi-Fi for my phone which they kindly gave me other than that my entire trip 626 miles was wonderful out here in Albuquerque New Mexico is amazing great place to visit the car was awesome it only cost me $28 in gas the whole week for 626 miles I would highly recommend using Fujis car And so much cheaper than your standard car rental company oh my God I saved $400 right off the top
