Pick-up ay Thrifty could have gone better. After over two hours of waiting for our reserved car I was referred to their manager at Hertz who took care of this immediately. If this had occurred from the onset It would have been an "Excellent" fating overall.

First, Dollar gave me a compact instead of the standard that I reserved. Second, this is the terms Kayak sent me: Monday, October 4 12:00 pm Volkswagen Jetta Pick-up - Dollar 3400 University Boulevard Southeast, Albuquerque INFO Car booked on Priceline.com Forward any changes to trips@kayak.com Saturday, October 16 12:00 pm Drop-off - Dollar 4775 South University Center Drive, Las Vegas University Ave in Albuquerque is at the airport. University Ave in Las Vegas is 3 miles from the airport. I returned the car to Las Vegas Airport which was not at University Ave so they charged me double !! since I returned it to the airport instead of University Ave - 3 miles away. Given the reservation data, there was no way I could, or should, have figured out University Ave in Las Vegas was NOT at the airport. Basically they charged me $1000 extra for not returning the car 3 miles from the airport. Finally, when I returned the car to the airport in Las Vegas, the attended REFUSED to give me a paper receipt (it was to be emailed to me) so I could not respond to the double charge.

No one present at drop off and therefore no confirmation on mileage, full fuel and time of return. Went to outside office and asked and staff just said "are keys in car - then you are done" Now I will need to see what shows up for charges to ensure extra charges for gas are not applied (as it was full).

Easy pickup at ABQ airport, agent was friendly and helpful. A bit surprised that the vehicle was a 2019 model. Not an issue, car was fine, just expected a newer vehicle. Drop off in Santa Fe was a bit difficult. The Hertz office is inside a hotel parking garage. We had the address, but there is no outside signage indicating that Hertz had an office inside, and no mention on our paperwork. Luckily the desk clerk at our hotel knew where the Hertz return was located.

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 Good10 Dec 2019
Car was clean and drop off easy.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.

Loved the staff in the morning when we ultimately picked up our car!When we arrived approximately 3 minutes before closing time, with a reservation, the desk was closed.

I picked up the car from ABQ and dropped it off in Taos. At drop off in Taos, the staff were friendly, helpful and efficient, which is typical of my positive Enterprise car rental experiences in Taos.At pick-up in ABQ, although each staff member I encountered was pleasant, the overall pick-up experience was extremely frustrating. Lines were long, and waiting for the actual car after check-in was even longer. Unfortunately this is typical of my Enterprise rental experience in ABQ.

Once on the road, I realized the car they assigned to me had a faulty speed limit cap of 65 miles an hour. The agent could not figure out how to disable the limit remotely, requiring me to turn around and drive 35 minutes back to the agency, which cost me a total of 2 hours in travel time, and I missed the event I had planned my trip around. A huge inconvenience and the experience caused emotional distress. Never rent from Kayak or Avis.

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.

Nothing.They could be more upfront about their pricing. I recommend going with someone else that allows unlimited mileage included in their pricing.

Never again!Select vehicle on the lotWhen you book with kayak, National considers you a second-class citizen. They want you to buy their $28-a-day insurance. (Warning about loss of use fees.) They say the Alliance insurance bought through kayak is insufficient. They charge $15 a day to allow your spouse to drive. They upsell, upsell, upsell: class of car, insurance, etc. etc. I won't rent with them again, either directly or through a third-party website. Use Budget!

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. Depending on the company that you will be renting with, you may have the option of dropping off your vehicle after regular business hours.
  • Albuquerque is a popular city amongst both business travelers and tourists, so its streets will often be congested. If you don’t want to get stuck driving in traffic, you can choose to pick up and drop off your car rental outside of rush hour, which typically occurs between the hours of 7 and 9 am and 5.30 and 7.30 pm. Some of the streets in the city are known for being particularly busy, and these include roads like Interstates 25 and 40.
  • Book your rental car at Albuquerque Airport at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
