New Mexico car rental information

What are the driving conditions like in New Mexico?

There is no better way to see New Mexico than by car. You can easily rent a car in New Mexico and set off on a road trip to see the state’s diverse landscape. From desert to forest, you’ll have all kinds of outdoor scenery to enjoy from your rental car. If you’re road-tripping during the summer, there are a couple of things to keep in mind. It can be really hot, and depending on where you’re headed, you may not see many gas stations, so be sure that your tank is full when you set off on your journey. Winter is fairly mild, but it can snow. If you’re traveling during the winter, make sure your rental car is equipped to handle snow or occasional ice.

What New Mexico driving laws should I be aware of?

Like in many other states, texting while driving in New Mexico is illegal. If you’re seen texting while driving your car rental, a police officer has the authority to pull you over and you will receive a ticket. Whether you decide on luxury or cheap rental cars, rental companies have liability insurance on their vehicles, so you will be insured in the state of New Mexico. You can purchase additional insurance if you would like more coverage. New Mexico also has a law making it illegal to drive if you're not paying full attention behind the wheel, so the best thing to do is stay focused on the road. One tip is to always set your location in your GPS system before hitting the road.

What type of documentation do I need to rent a car in New Mexico?

If you are a US citizen, all you need to rent a car in New Mexico is a valid driver’s license from your home state. If you’re an international visitor, you may rent a car with an international driver’s license, and in some cases, just your home country driver’s license. You may need to check with different rental companies on their policies regarding foreign driver's licenses. We recommend keeping your passport and international driver’s license with you at all times while you’re on the road.
