Albuquerque is New Mexico's largest city with over half a million residents and some 350 thousand more in the surrounding metropolitan area. Located on the banks of the Rio Grande river, Albuquerque is also adjacent to the Sandia Mountains range. Sharing its name with both a town in Spain and a 17th century Spanish Duke, the word Albuquerque comes from the Latin phrase for “white oak”. The history and cultural heritage of Spain is still a major facet of life in modern-day Albuquerque.

Visit and explore Albuquerque with your reliable hire car

Albuquerque is a great city in general to have a car rental, because the climate is usually dry and sunny, with low relative humidity. Albuquerque enjoys plentiful sunshine three-quarters of the year on average, and the extreme high and low temperatures present in many southwestern U.S. areas aren't such a problem in this riverside city.

Beautiful Southwest architecture is waiting for you in Albuquerque, so hop in your cheap car rental and visit the University of New Mexico to see and photograph some amazing buildings. The Pueblo Revival style was first popularized by architect John Gaw Meem's work on this university. Also, many 19th century buildings still stand in the downtown area!

If you're in Albuquerque overnight, then by all means wait for sundown and drive your car rental downtown, where many of the major buildings are lit in gorgeous, unusual colors. The Wells Fargo building, as one example, is illuminated in green lighting. The Compass Bank building and the DoubleTree Hotel are lit up in blue, while reds and yellows illuminate other bank headquarters and the county courthouse! The downtown lighting is really a sight to see, and it's just a short drive in your rental car to see for yourself!
